I got called to the school today in the middle of the afternoon because Aiden wouldn't calm down. This was the first time I've been called in the middle of the actual crisis. Usually they just tell me about it afterwards. But I only live 2 minutes away and I was really glad they called me.

When I got there Aiden was practically trying to climb on his poor teacher. He was sobbing and she looked completely frazzled. I felt really bad for her.

I calmed him down, got him colouring with his teacher, and left.

He got grounded from seeing his friends after school as a punishment.

Wanna know the reason he told me he was freaking out?

He wanted to go home and play lego.

Ya. I was not impressed.

Owen was super well behaved today and just generally a lovely child to be around. He has been pretty whiny lately so I was relieved to have him so agreeable.

But oh Miss. Olivia is driving me completely batty. She is ultra clingy and is waking up about 20 times a night (ok, maybe not 20... but at least 6 or 7 times a night). I foolishly tried to sleep in my own bed last night. I lasted about 45 minutes before I ended up with Olivia for the rest of the night. It just was not worth the effort to go back and forth all night long!!!

Needless to say I'm a wee bit tired.

My mom always told me I was an only child because she had to sleep in my room until I was 5.

I hope Olivia lets you sleep in your bed before that!

I'm sorry that Aiden had a bad day today. I am praying that Olivia sleeps better, and bless Owen for being sweeter today!

Adam has been misbehaving at daycare, but did better today. Wonder why they go through those phases??

Let me know if you need anything! I'm not doing anything tomorrow, so give me a shout.

Oh Tara, I wish there was some way I could help you! I wish I lived closer so that I could give you a hug. Hope tomorrow is better!

I'm praying for ya, girl! You know that old saying when you are expecting your first, "Enjoy these last few months of sleep because they are the last you'll ever get uninterrupted?" Don't we wish we had listened???
Here's hoping you get some sleep soon!!!

How frustrating!

I wish you a good nights rest! But ya know what? As soon as they do start sleeping through the night, you won't be able to. That's what I'm dealing with now.

Yikes! Thank goodness for the bright moments with Owen. I think it's still adjustment time for the back to school thing-- your house is sounding eerily familiar to me.

Hey, are you jumping on the "Thank you" band wagon? 5 days left to score some chocolate ;-)
