Last Thursday, after Matthew went to school, I cleaned up Marthaâ€™s bottles and sterilized them. That was around 6:30AM. But since I was so sleep-deprived (Martha slept at 3AM), I decided to take a nap beside the girl, completely forgetting the sterilized bottles in the stove. In my dream, there was somebody trying to wake me up but I didnâ€™t want to get up. I think I was half-awake for a good five minutes before I felt like somebody touched my feet. I woke up, got up and smelled something burning. I went outside, looked for neighbors who might be burning leaves, nothing. So I went back inside, opened my laptop and checked my e-mails. The burning smell was quite disturbing already since I smelled plastic too. I got up checked around and saw our stove. I completely forgot all about it!! Mind you, it was already 11AM!! Thank God we didnâ€™t burn the house or else we would have been killed.
Thank you to our angels and thank you Ate.
Lesson of the Story: Make sure you drink coffee especially if you are a mom who is deprived of sleep.
Be safe everyone.
