Caitlyn thought it would be a great idea to stand up in her crib and shriek at the top of her lungs at 3:30 this morning. She found it even more amusing to wake the entire house up. What I heard was the glass breaking screech followed by an almost identical one from Eddie. I had just fallen back to sleep as Ed got home around 2:30 from work.
I ran in to their room like a crazy person. “Mommay!!” Caitlyn is screaming. “Get meeeeeee out” Eddie is saying. I got Eddie out and plopped him in bed next to Ed. He cries for me for a minute, but Ed managed to calm him down. Caitlyn is still screaming. “Screw it” I thought, and went in to the kitchen and made a bottle. What a horrible lazy mom I am, I know. She shrieked like a banshee the entire time I was out there. As I walked back in to her room, she laid down go back to sleep. When she saw me again, the screaming started back up. She took the bottle though and was quiet until 6:00.
I went back in to my own room to retrieve Eddie. Ed tells me that we need a towel. What??? Eddie has peed out the side of his diaper making a huge pee puddle on my bed. Glorious. Cleaned him up and cleaned the bed up. Got him back in bed by 3:45.
When my alarm went off at 5:42 it felt like I hadn’t slept at all. I’m really glad today is Friday.
