A very long goodnight

Lately our sleeping situations have taken a dramatic turn for the worst.  Sammy has rejected her crib after spending a week in Montana in a big bed a month ago.  We thought it would perhaps be a good idea to put two twin beds together, as putting our children to sleep involves laying with them until they fall asleep, thus giving us the chance to try and put them to sleep together.  Sammy and Harmon are now napping at the same time, which should be good, except that they don’t go to sleep because they keep each other up by chattering at each other much to my chagrin.  Same at bedtime.  I won’t even get into the night wakings.  Instead I will favor you with a highly-complex drawing of how I put them to bed last night.  Please note my arms are crossed to be able to pat/pin-to-the-bed them to sleep.  Also I don’t wear green shirts with red sleeves.  I just wanted you to see the crossed arms.

Happy Nappy

    At first glance I thought the red was rope and they had you tied up!

    I’m so very sorry. Dealing with this kind of thing is such a pain! It was bad with one kid, but I can’t imagine the horror of having it happen with two in the same room.

    haha…you are the best. I love the drawing.
    On a serious note…that is the WORST situation. Things that happen in the sleeping hours are always dramatized. Best of luck…
