I had the scare of my lifetime yesterday. I'm going to share, not so you can see what a horrible mother I was but, so you won't make the same mistake.
MB and I were visiting my mom and I thought I would attempt to put him in the pack and play for a nap. He rarely falls asleep in it but it was worth a try. The pack and play was beside a bed and dresser. I noticed a few things on the bed (including an empty bag) so I moved them over and didn't think much of it. We could hear MB in the room playing and talking. When he got quiet my mom wanted to check on him but I told her not to because I didn't want him to start fussing if he wasn't asleep yet.
A while later, I opened the door to peek on him. He was on his stomach with green yarn wrapped all around his neck and arm. I screamed for my mom and picked him up. He woke up as I started unwinding the yarn from around his neck. My mom walked in and saw what happened and started screaming too. MB started crying since he was woken up to screams and his mom unwinding his yarn project. He was perfectly fine and there was no harm done but I was really shaken up over it. I got on my knees and thanked Heavenly Father for watching out for my baby. Every time I think about what could have happened if the Angels weren't looking out for him, I get teary eyed. I love this little guy so much and want him to grow up healthy and happy and live a good, long life.
I learned a lesson. He is taller and getting more curious by the day and I have to move things further from his reach. I also need to cherish every day that I have with those that I love.
