The house is silent, now.
About fifteen minutes ago it was the opposite.
Let me explain this picture:
Lily and Eden are both way overly tired (no naps today=them toxic).
Chad is not home yet.
It's WAY past bed time.
I am running on less than fumes, I had just a few hours of sleep last night (isnt motherhood beautiful?).
Maggie, well she is a dream baby...until about 6 and all she does is eat and eat and eat until bed time (9 and then sleeps through the night, usually).
So the picture: Eden is hysterical, refusing her bed, Lily is whiny and joins Eden and they feed off of each other, Maggie is screaming for me. So what happens? Me nursing a baby while tucking kids in MY bed, while snapping at them, while praying for patience so they live through the night, and then I turn off the lights in the whole house, they continue to cry until they give up and fall asleep. All the while, Maggie is still nursing.
I am more than tired, my boobs hurt, and I still have a bunch of crap to get done, that will not be getting done.
And yes, Chad is bringing me home Ben and Jerrys.
