What's happening in my world...

AHHHHHHHH! It's official I'm drowning!! It all hit me on Christmas. We had 2 more parties to attend that day and I was going on 2 hours of sleep from the night before. We were in the car with crying kids (day 2 of that fun) for 3 hours and I drank more coffee then any one person should. I didn't even take outfit pictures!! And we all know that's not like me! ;)
After both parties were over I got around 4 hours of sleep and felt a bit better. Since then every night is something. Spit up in the bassinet that turns into a 2 hour project because you have to strip down the bed and baby and redress both. Then re feed the baby and try to get her down and everytime my son then wakes up and wants to play. I finally get both kids down and by that time I get about an hour before my son wakes up for the day. And did I mention I have a 2 year old that no longer takes naps?!
This keeps happening! Every night is something. I sleep less now then ever before and I just can't catch up!
I probably just need one good nights sleep and I'd be a new woman, but since my hubby has no days off this week I have very little help.
The hubs has 2 Lucky Boys Confusion shows tonight and tomorrow at the Double Door in Chicago. Sadly this year (it's their 10th year playing SFAS) I am not going to either show. I have our babies. As much as I'll miss seeing my boy and my friends on NYE, to be honest, if I had a sitter for the night I would rather sleep! haaa Man, my life has changed a bit in the past few years! (In a great way of course!)
I will leave you now with a picture of all the loot we got from the 4 parties in 2 days. I realize it is out of control! Before I opened anything, I went through all the kids existing toys and bagged them all up! We had the Children's Cancer Society come and pick up all of those and then I opened a few of these for my kids. The rest are being stored in my laundry room and will be brought out one at a time over the next few months.

Oh Lisa, my heart breaks for you that you are so tired! If I lived closer, I would watch the kiddos so you could sleep!
You got a ton of presents! Good for you for giving back! Wish there was more people like you in the world!!!

holy loot!!
I'm exhausted just reading all that! a tip for middle of the night mishaps - layer up the bassinet/crib sheets. I do mattress pad, sheet, mattress pad, sheet, mattress pad, sheet.... that way, at least all you have to do is rip off the dirty top two. saves you a few minutes of recovering the mattress at 4 in the morning!
i will miss you tonight & tomorrow, but hope you get a few hours of shut eye!!
