Last night we played a lovely game of musical beds. You know, the dance where you, your spouse & your children all rotate beds during the night?
At around 1a Sam came into our room, I don’t remember what she was crying about but I do recall being so tired that I made the foolish decision to pull her into our bed. After about the third time she rolled over & smacked me upside the face I decided to get up and stumbled into her room in hopes of salvaging a good night’s sleep. Around 3a Soph woke up crying. Which she never does, & I’m now fearful a grimy childhood virus is lurking. P & I quite literally ran into eachother in the hallway & I gave him the nod of “I got this, you’re welcome.” Did I mention he has strep? Yep, strep. Might as well stick a fork in him. I did the whole dance of patting her, slowly lifting my hand off her back one finger at a time & then slinking out of the room in ultra stealth mode. Each time that little head popped right up as I was making it out of the door & the wails returned. Once I even tried crawling out. ON MY HANDS & KNEES PEOPLE. Oh if only we had video cameras to capture this stuff. At some point I brought her to bed with me, Sam’s twin bed that is. This was around 4ish. At 6:30 I heard Sam at Sophie’s side of the bed, “WHAT are you guys doing in MY BED?! I want to play Barbies, you have to get out. NOW.” Turning four has given her a new false sense of authority, we’re gonna have to work at that. Goodness knows we tried but at this point everyone was up & the only logical thing to do was start brewing coffee. I tell you all of this because I had so many lovely ideas for the blog this week but my fatigue has left me to resort to cheap humor for web hits.
My friend Kelly texted me this at just the right time. Perhaps I have a tacky sense of humor but this totally turned my day around. My ass didn’t quite fall off but it certainly came close. P required an explanation of that last line…LMFAO, get it? I’m hoping you got it & the bacteria is just slowing his brain down.I have a feeling you’re snickering right now too. Go ahead, it’s funny people.
Have a great weekend my friend, I’ll meet you back here Sunday night. I’m hoping this next week on the blog I’ll have a ‘light’ chicken marsala recipe, a new Pinbusters video (DIY Beach Waves Spray anyone?) some more decorating makeovers & maybe, if I’m feeling brave, I’ll delve into my two cents on the whole chick-fil-a controversy. Nugget addiction vs. Ethics, c’mon now.
Oh & I totally got all your comments requesting more info on my at home gel manis after the DIY Chevron Mani post, ask & ye shall receive! Next time I do my nails I’ll video it & give you all the dirt, probably end of next week.
