Jackson wears a pull-up to bed since without one, at three and a half, he'd be wetting the bed all the time and I don't want to get up every night to change his sheets. Or mine, since he is in and out of my bed at least once a night.
Last night at dinner, Jackson ate a ton of asparagus. He likes it, which doesn't surprise me considering his love for black olives and broccoli. But asparagus has late-night consequences that were unanticipated.
He came crawling into my bed about 2 or 3 in the morning and I was sleeping soundly. I barely registered him until the smell hit me. You know that asparagus makes your pee stink, right? Well imagine that smell coming from the diaper of the child sleeping next to you. I was in such a weird state of sleep though, that I couldn't wake up and take care of it. I kept dreaming that I was getting up, getting Jackson up and getting rid of the pull-up of death full of asparagus pee. I have no idea how long I suffered before I rolled over and kicked Jackson out and sent him back to his own bed. Poor baby. He stank all night and I didn't care as long as he wasn't sleeping next to me. I can't believe I didn't wake up and take care of him.
Remind me never to sleep next to my son who has eaten asparagus and my husband who has eaten garlic.
