juggling act

Let me start off by saying that Madeline takes a three hour nap every day. That said, since she is sick today, I expect her to sleep AT LEAST that long, if not longer considering her fever, the lack of sleep last night and the fact that she is taking Benadryl today. WRONG! An hour into their naptime, Madeline woke up screaming out for me. I, who was feeding Claire at the time, quickly put her down and ran in to quiet down Madeline so that she wouldn't wake up Emma who was asleep on the top bunk above her. Claire, not happy that I put her down, starts screaming which wakes Madeline up again which then wakes Emma up. Just as Madeline is starting to settle down, Emma comes back into the bedroom to start playing with toys?! So needless to say, we are all now awake hours before we should be and everyone's cranky. Did I mention that at the start of all this, Claire pooped all over my leg so throughout this whole ordeal I have been wearing poop smeared jeans? Oh, the joys of motherhood. Only two hours left until Ryan comes home to relieve me and I head off to bootcamp.....

Oh Ali, I totally feel your pain! The worst thing is when naptime is cut short!!! And it always brings so much chaos! I hope your girls get better soon:)
