Just So You Know

Not every day is a good day. Some days I get up on the wrong side of the bed (oh, I mean off the mattress in the Bean's room where I have been since 2 a.m.). I am cranky and so are the boys. I get nothing done, I am hot and tired and thinking that the cycle of feeds and aching feet and back will never end. I get left alone with babies that refuse to nap and when they finally go down it is not at the same time. Husband comes home late and also had a bad day. There is nothing to eat in the kitchen. I watch everyone else go about their business and think about how I will never be first again in my life. The boys go schizo after a few minutes of the most fun family time we've ever had and we cannot get them to stop (babies are more unpredictable than crack heads sometimes, I swear.) We get them to sleep (until 11 at least) and I hop on here to write because I have to let it out in some forum. It has just been a bad day. Lest you think we are all smiles and light here in the Bean household, I have now dispelled the myth. Sorry, no pictures of this day, I'd rather just forget it anyway. I think I'll go knit now. Even though my hands hurt (Okay, enough, Amiee). Bye.

I just thought about the cuteness of the boys in those previous pictures and I realized Mamas are as schizo as the babies they love. Part and parcel of this whole thing, eh?

Your boys are so cute. Tomorrow will be a better day. It is all part of having a family!

I understand, we all have those days.

Hope your day is better today.

Do you know about the miracle blankets? My friend with twins, swears by them. She said it was the only reason they started sleeping longer periods and finally through the night. Just 'google' it ...!

well, if it makes you feel better, your post did make me laugh ~ not at you, but because i also had a bad day yesterday. the sort of thing where i got frustrated that C wanted to make coffee at home rather than go to a cafe - the nerve of him! i hope today is better (and full of naps!).

Just stopping by to say that there will be better days (of course, you know that!) and that *MY GOSH* your boys are absolutely adorable (but I bet you know that already too!).

Hugs.

oh wow, i was there with you (travel back in our time machine two years) so so many times. that whole "sleep while the baby is sleeping" method doesn't work with multiples. just try to imagine the next sunrise and start again fresh. xoxo

p.s. keep rereading the baby whisperer and also, if/when you get a chance, go to the baby whisperer website and peruse the forums. i found SO much helpful information there on everything from nursing to sleeping to adjusting the schedules (which happened A LOT).

p.p.s. never be afraid to order takeout. :-)
