. . . for Lauren and Lauren: why you won't want to sleep at my house

why you won't want to sleep at my house


If sharing that I found a tick crawling in our bed last spring doesn't make you not want to sleep at my house then this probably will. 

The other night I was nursing Addilyn in the middle of the night and thought I felt something crawling on my side.  I told Chris I thought there was a bug in our bed to which he was no real help at all and I couldn't see one so I thought I was just feeling things. 

While same thing happened the next night, but I was convinced something was crawling on me.  I swatted at my side, while feeding Addilyn and saw an earwig crawling in our bed.  I somewhat panicked, trying to get it off our bed.  I put Addilyn down, mid feeding to which she started crying and I started leaking milk, all while frantically looking for the earwig.  I couldn't find it so I finished feeding her, put her back down and had to use the light of my phone until I finally found it.  

Needless to say I was grossed out and had a hard time falling back to sleep.  So please come stay at my house.  Ticks, earwigs, and a crying baby in the middle of the night.  And if you're really lucky there will be a torn, eaten up diaper from Molly laying around the house too.  Sounds quite inviting don't you think?

LOL (well, not really) I once woke up while prego with #1 screaming frantically that there was a HUGE spider on the wall. Poor hubby...turned all the lights on looked high and low...no spider. Must have been the pregnancy hormones, lack of good sleep, bad dream. So, ever since...if I say there is a bug in our room...he tells me to find it myself. LOL Of course, he doesn't think it is too funny when said bug is crawling on him!!!

Scary! I hate those nasty little bugs. Like, what is their purpose?!

Oh my gosh! I had an earwig crawling on my leg the other day and I jumped so high and then couldn't find it after that. I think it crawled off my dog Bear. I hate creepy crawly bugs!! I love your outfit. The blue with the green in the scarf looks great together. I hope you don't have anymore bugs in the middle of the night crawling on you!!

Am I the only one who doesn't know what an earwig is? Haha. Either way it does not sound like fun!

Neha said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You are funny Katie! Unlike what you think :-) This is what I call a funny post. :-)

Oh man, I HATE earwigs. I've found a couple of centipedes around my house the past couple weeks, and it's freaking me out.

Amanda said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ahhh! I would freak out. And Chris sounds like Tyler.. A few months ago I woke up out of a dead sleep because I thought I felt something crawling on my arm. I tried waking him up but he ignored me.. I got the light on my phone on & saw a giant spider crawl over the side of the bed. Needless to say I freaked out & slept on the couch the rest of the night!

living in African brought me many sleepless nights. bats, rats, giant cockroaches and centipedes, malaria carrying mosquitoes, and geckos have all found their way into my bed during our 2 years there. you'd think it would have made me one strong mama, but i still squeal at the sight of a tiny spider, ha!!

hey, i bet everyone has bugs in there houses that they don't know about. chances are we are all just sleeping when they come out, so we don't notice them. 2 am feedings will make you notice more things!

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

We're getting a ton of bugs this fall--thankfully, though, they seem to be 'only' infesting the bathroom, not the bedroom!

Lauren {Fizz and Frosting} said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Eeek! Nothing freaks me out more than feeling bugs crawling on me while I'm sleeping! I wouldn't have been able to go back to sleep either!

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ack, I totally would've freaked out too! So gross!

Your story made me laugh and cringe at the same time. It's happened to me before and it's gross!!!!! The joys of living in a house. We had rats last year that died in our attic, hence creating thousands of flies. We woke up one Saturday morning to thousands of flies all on one wall. Turns out they were from the dead rat. You don't want to know how many flies I killed that week. It was the most disgusting thing ever!!!! We got an exterminator out and we patched up the holes the rats were getting into the house from and set up some traps. It was awful and i never want to repeat that experience ever again. HOpe the bugs go away!!!

bugs are the worst! but honestly, they are in everyone's home!

Brianne Bracco said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Well your somewhat panic is probably better than what would have been my full on bug meltdown haha. And this time of year is notorious for them wanting to come stay warm inside. Don't they know they are not welcomed guests??

Sky-Ann @ The Little Button said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

oh my this brought back memories. Just before we moved I had one in my bed too!!! Nate was at work and for a second I forgot all about being pregnant and did a little dance...lol Then I had one crawling in the shower curtain while I was washing my hair!!!. I am glad I have not seen one here but no one would have wanted to sleep at my place either!!!

My name is Lydia said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

TICKS?! ahh that kills me. i hate feeling a bug and then finding a big hairy/crawly thing speeding over me. i DIE!

Susannah said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Eeeewww!!!!! I don't know how I'd sleep after that!!!

Andi said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

So I didn't know what an earwig was, and just googled it. EEEEKKK! I would have been freaking out for sure.

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh no.

Desiree Macke said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I hadn't ever heard of an earwig until this post. Naturally I had to google it... Oh.my.gosh. GROSS!!! I would have freaked out!

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Reading this post made me laugh but it also made me thankful that you share about real life. You share about crying babies and earwigs. You don't try to glam everything up. So thankful for that in a world where people sometimes try and cover their true selves.

Amanda said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Bugs in bed freak me out. Make sure to use HOT water while cleaning your bed sheets. And then wait awhile before climbing back in.

Elegance and Mommyhood said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahahaa this is funny. With a new baby all is allowed though. I cannot say I am scared from insects. I don't like them but they don't scare me. That is weird because I scare and startle easily.

Anyway you look lovely in a Maxi as usual. You got 2 bright colors mixed with a Plain White Tee. Great Skirt & Scarf!

Nobody wants to live with bugs, so I don't think there'd be any takers for the moment. Have you guys done something about it already? Hopefully Addilyn did not have to put up with bugs crawling all over her. No one would like to sleep over at her house when she invites friends over, so it's a good idea to do something with these unwelcome visitors.
