Lack of Sleep

What do you get done during the day? House cleaning, laundry, errands, bills, cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner, baths for kids, night time stories and tucking the little ones in. Sounds like the typical day right? For the most part, give or take a few items, add your own as you see fit.

I am sitting on the floor of my living room with two cute little infants on the blanket staring around, making those cute little baby sounds and thinking about this day kind of caught my attention... What did I do today? Umm.....

Last night was one of the longest nights we've had yet. The effect of the lack of sleep, oh so quickly catches up with you when by noon you realize: I'm not dressed, the babies are fed, the kids had a pop tart for breakfast and you're sending them to a neighbors so you can get a nap and feed the babies again. Yup, by 4:30 I'm thinking, get dinner started, feed the babies, the laundry can wait till tomorrow, feed the babies again, and at least pull your "desperately in need of a washing" hair back one more day and get your self moving already! and feed the babies again.

Well, it's not 8:30, the kids are fed and getting ready for bed, the babies are fed and we're desperately attempting to keep them up a little longer before bedtime (maybe they'll sleep a little better through the night tonight) and finally there is a welcome peace and calm in the house. OK, I can live with that.
