Daylight Savings was 3 days ago, so my kids are all confused and have become bed time rebels!

Last night I had my glass of wine on chill and my night roster of prime time TV waiting for me. I never got to them.

It started with my daughter. She felt that since she had a nap earlier that day she didn’t need to go to bed while it was still light outside. Once my son got hip & saw she wasn’t in bed he was working overtime to keep his lil butt out of the bed too! The way he saw it, his infamous “I have to potty” in the middle of the night struck gold when he saw me & the baby sitting on the couch watching tv.

That night I heard it all!
“My feet hurt!”
“My knees hurt”
“My arm hurts”
*cough cough* “I’m sick! I’m coughing”
*sneeze* “Ma! Ma! I’m really sick! See?! I sneeze!”
“My tummy hurts ”
“My back hurts!!!”
My poor child!!
Then he gets this genius idea! My wonderful son says “I think if I sit on the couch with you I will feel all better!”
Funny how that works! In a few weeks time I pray I’ll get my “mommy wine time” back!

The scene: your in the bathroom for a late night poop. (B/C as a mom of you can’t do that during regular business hours) All of a sudden you hear a loud thud! You wait for the cry to determine if it’s a child or the Tupperware pile in your pantry that has been looking suspect lately…then there it is! The confirming cry!
Now quickly you must determine which child it is by cry and location of cry alone! Ah ha! It’s the eldest! Now as your thinking “he’s never fallen out since he was a baby! What happened?!” You moving at the speed of light shaking, wiping, and pulling up to rescue your baby! It isn’t until you have him in your arms and see 1. He’s ok. and 2. He’s asleep standing up, that you realize your shaking!
Super Mom is a tough job!
