Parenting Fail

Spenser has been getting better about sleeping through the night. If he wakes up before midnight, it is usually between 9:30 and 11:00 PM and he requires some walking and soothing to get back to sleep. After midnight, he will usually fuss a bit (less than 5 minutes) and go back to sleep on his own. Last night was following his standard protocol. He woke at 11, I rocked him, he went back to sleep. As soon as I got back into bed, he started fussing again. I waited and he was back to sleep within 5 minutes. Sometime in the middle of the night, 2 or 3 AM I'm guessing, he started crying. He quit within 5 minutes so I didn't think much of it. This morning, he woke up at 7:15 AM which is pretty normal for him. What was not so normal was the dried vomit on the floor, all over the crib and all over him. Poor baby had gotten sick last night and we, his lazy parents, didn't even know it. He's been acting mostly normal this morning, though he's barfed about 8 more times, triggering two loads of laundry and a bath. He ate lunch and seemed ok for it and is now down for his afternoon nap. I'm hoping his little stomach bug is short lived.
