Microblog Monday: Can I Have a Do Over?
I've been staying up WAY too late recently (11:00-12:00ish), watching Season 5 of Downton Abbey. I was proud of myself last night for turning off the tv instead of starting another episode, and being in bed by 10:30. Still not early, but better than it had been. For some reason, Hubby was still up really late though. At just past midnight, I heard him sneeze and he woke up Ayden. I went in, covered Ayden back up, patted his back, and he actually went right back to sleep. A bit later, Hubby finally came to bed, but then he kept me from being able to fall back to sleep, so I eventually moved out to the couch. Both Ayden and Rylee decided to wake up at 5:40am. Ugghhhhh!!!
It was almost time for breakfast when I grabbed a tissue to wipe Rylee's nose, but she made a game of it and ran away from me! I just about impaled myself on the corner of a kitchen counter trying to catch her real quick. Seriously, it brought me to my knees and drew blood. If it were a sharp object, I would be dead.
About an hour later, Ayden got his fingers pinched in the folding closet door in his room. His poor little fingers were so indented! He was back up and running after 5 minutes of crying in my arms, but had another moment later, when he fell off a kitchen chair. He wasn't hurt, but needed to cry for a few minutes and be loved on.
Later in the day, this happened...
How many small heart attacks can one mom have? I was out of the room for literally no more than 90 seconds. I really, really hope I can survive toddlerhood with these two. I hope THEY survive toddlerhood!
Shortly after this, Ayden was climbing on his MegaBloks truck. He fell and smacked his forehead on the floor. Cue, more crying and a small, red lump on his noggin.
Can I have a do over on today, please?
