Thumbsucker - another floorbed adventure

This post may be hilarious or it could be that I'm just short on oxygen from laughing so much that I couldn't breath.

Earlier I put Miloh to bed just as I normally do. Plopped him on his floor bed and lied on the floor next to him with my hand on his back. 4 out of 4.5 times that I do this I fall asleep next to him...and that did happen but that's not the story.

We give Miloh a pacifier when he goes to sleep. It's really the only time he needs one and it's great because it's a cue for him to go to bed, or when he grabs it for us to know he's sleepy.

But he's fickle and often likes a couple—of identical—pacifiers to choose from and/or switch throughout the night.

Now if you remember from an older post he sometimes puts one of the pacifiers in my mouth, you know because I have a hard time sleeping without one.

Today he only had one.

Well there I am lying next to him when he shoves his hand in my mouth...then he scrapped my mouth with his nails and grabbed my teeth and wiggled my head. So I spit out his hand.

He wouldn't have it...he shoved his thumb in my mouth and wiggled it. I kept it there for a few second and I spit it out. Then he put it back in...that's when I started laughing.

I realized he was giving me his thumb to suck for comfort because I had no pacifier. And that's when I started laughing...with a tiny thumb in my mouth...and silently because I din't want to wake him as he was so almost asleep.

He wouldn't let me take his thumb out—he just kept it in my mouth and wiggle it—until he rolled.

And since I was then unable to sleep because I had no pacifier or thumb he tried to get the thumb back in my mouth...but he missed...and now his thumb was in my nose...but just a bit.

And that's when he shoved his thumb all the way up my nose...and I was still laughing...I had been this whole time...I could barely breath.

I either woke him a bit or he realized he didn't have the thumb in my mouth so he made a quick transfer.

Then he rolled.

I soon fell asleep on his floor like usual and without a pacifier or thumb.
