An order of events

These events transpired between 12:00 am and 6:00 am, Thursday morning:

1) I went to bed too late
2) Boop woke up with an unfortunate situation that involved me stripping the bed, and changing her clothes, and putting her to bed with her sister. Oh, the fun of being four years old.
3) Mystery Man woke up to see what the commotion was about.
4) Mystery Man would not lie down in his bed. Only with Mama.
5) Mystery Man kept kicking mama.
6) Mystery Man seemed to be asleep, but was taking up the whole bed
7) Mystery Mama had enough! She made up the Betty Boop's bed with new bedding, and laid down on the bottom bunk.
8) Mystery Man started to cry for Mama
9) The cries got fainter. But not in a good way.
10) Mystery Mama ran downstairs to find Mystery Man standing in the dark kitchen holding his blanket and crying.
11) DH remained asleep.
12) Mystery Mama scooped up her little man, returned him to the sleeping quarters of the house, and laid him down on the bottom bunk with her - thinking 2 to a bed was better than 3.
13) Mystery Man stood up on the bed and tried to climb to the top bunk shouting "Betty, Betty!" over and over.
14) Mystery Mama deposited him on her bed with her sleeping DH and cried.
15) DH said, "Go to bed, I'll keep him."
16) Mystery Mama went back to the girls' room, but heard lots of crying, for a long time.
17) Mystery Mama couldn't take it, and went back to her bedroom, arriving just in time to get thrown up on by Mystery Man.
18) Mystery Mama changed her clothes and did the best she could with the bed.
19) Time for Red to go to school.

And all this, on the night Ryan Kasprzak was eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance.

Aaah, the joys of motherhood!

Bill Cosby once said that parents of only children aren't really parents at all because they've got it too easy. They always know who did it. I do remember having it easy the first time around. Reality set in the day I took my firstborn and three week old secondborn children to the park and they both pooed all over me. We'd walked there, so I had no choice but to walk back with them and their poo all over all of us.

P.S. Now my baby buggy is fully equipped with an emergency diaper bag which always stays in it and is fully loaded with all necessary equipment and supplies for all weather conditions!
