My worst fear came true…

May 10, 2007

Let me start by saying that I have HORRIBLE night vision. I can’t see anything in our house, I have just learned how many steps it takes to get from here to there (just like a blind person). So at night when the baby wakes up I just count my steps to the end of the hall and back to our room. Last night after feeding the baby, I nudged Micah to take him back but he didn’t wake up so I slid out of bed and took him back. Then I walked to our room, counted the seven steps to the bathroom, turned left and walked two steps, turned and started to back up to the toilet when I stepped on something soft…then heard a deep low voice say “what are you doing”. I screamed, jumped, ran out of the room, and turned on the light all in one swift move. I had stepped on Micah’s foot and started to sit on him, and since he can see like a cat in the dark I’m sure I looked ridiculous to him.

But my biggest fear is that in the dark someone is waiting for me…behind the shower curtain, behind the door, on the toilet (it could happen), and last night it came true. So I will no longer talk myself out of turning on all the lights because it might wake Micah up, because I’m sure that might bloodcurdling scream is a far worse way to wake up than by the bathroom light.
