So I was in a dead sound sleep this morning, and my daughter yelled, "Mama! Help!"
I think my feet hit the floor before my eyes were open. My hart was trying to jump out through the top of my head. I ran into her room with my mind full of horrible possibilities--okay, I'll admit it, I worry too much, and it turned out she had hidden in her sleeping bag under a pile of stuffed animals and wanted me to try and find her.
We had a little chat about yelling for help when you don't ned it and what it means to "cry wolf." But it's hours later, and I'm still off. Two cups of coffee later, and I want to be back in that sound sleep. And I'm a grouch.
So have any of you woken up to false adrenaline alarms? If you have, can you shake it off, or does it stay with you?
