The Noise!

Last night after we put the kids to bed Rusty and I sat down to watch a movie. We got Valkyrie from netflix and Rusty was eager to watch it. The last few we have gotten were all kind of for me. That's an entire post in itself. Anyway, I digress. Back to our night. So, we are sitting on the couch gloriously kid free watching this serious movie. I mean SERIOUS! It took me a while to get into it, but I eventually did. It was pretty good. During one scene that I'm sure was well....serious, we heard this crashing sound coming from upstairs. Now, this wasn't' your normal toy falling off the shelf or kid falling out of bed sound. It was more like a splattering almost glass tinkling sound. We both stared at each other wide eyed with horror! Let me give you a little background from where this horror originates. Will has had this cough thing going on. The kind where he seems fine during the day but coughs his head off at night. The other night he was coughing like crazy, so I went up to give him some medicine. I'm not sure if it was from all the coughing or me trying to shove the medicine dropper into his sleepy mouth, but he proceeded to gag then he threw up all over me, the bed, and himself. It wasn't pretty people! So....back to last night on the couch. After Rusty and I stared at each other wide eyed for all of .5 seconds we both dashed up the stairs. We both were thinking the same thing, Throw Up!!!! (Looking back I realize that he let me go first! You know he can run faster than me!) We ran straight to Will's room! He was sleeping soundly. I went over to him and felt all around. Nothing. So then we both headed to John's room (me first again). As we approached we noticed his light on. He does this sometimes so he can read or play in his bed. I don't worry because he seems to get enough sleep. Anyway....we enter his room rather quickly to find him sitting up in his bed with a dazed and confused look on his face. I looked at the floor and quickly saw our sound culprit. It was his stinkin' Bakugan toys! About 30 of his stinkin' bakugan toys littering the floor of his bedroomright by his bed. I realized that he had been playing with them earlier, hence the light, and he had kicked his case of them off his bunk bed while sleeping which in turn scattered the little plastic balls all over the floor making the tinkling splattering sound. Which sounds a lot like throw up! I breathed a sigh of relief, turned off John's light, and kissed him good night. Rusty still didn't trust my Nancy Drew insight and made ME go check to make sure Mae didn't throw up. She, of course, was sleeping soundly.

We then finished our very serious movie. Then all was quiet in the Workman house.
