Okay so I was going to title this "3 Year-Old For Sale". Seeing as how I don't want to go to jail, because I am kidding, I thought better of it. Let me paint a picture for you. Imagine a time when all the children were asleep by 8pm every night during the week. Dishes were done and the hubby and I could climb into bed and watch our shows on Tivo or read a book - Alone - Together. What a lovely time it was. Now fast forward to 3 months before my due date approximately the same time someone turned 3. LD has not willingly gone to bed since that time - 6 months ago. LD is currently up and screaming - in front of the room the baby is sleeping in. It has been so bad I was actually relieved when allergy season was here and I could give her Benadryl. Not that it actually had any affect, but I can dream can't I?
I know I wrote about this very recently but I had not wrote about the bliss that was once our evening routine. I miss that routine and I really need that 2 hours every evening alone with my hubby. It is our time to reconnect from the day and it helps us be a strong parenting team. Instead I am dealing with kids from the second I wake up to the moment I fall asleep and sometimes in between.
I am so tired lately I am drinking coffee and Red Bull almost everyday. I brought a Red bull to church on Sunday and our pastor said hi to us after service and said he hoped my Red Bull helped me stay awake during his sermon. Sigh.
