DUUUUUUUUUUUDE. I have so much to tell you guys.

My BIG OLE brain has been so scattered (and slightly sleep-deprived) lately. (Example: I have six posts in draft form and just started this one from scratch.) I can't FOCUS to say the least.

So, let's just talk about some HAPPENINGS.

One: Nate had his first day of preschool last week. I bought him this:
It was (admittedly) way too expensive but ITS HIS FIRST BACKPACK and there were robots and, well, resistance was futile.

Two: We are moving Nate to a twin bed in his room. So I bought his these:
I know you all are SHOCKED.

To say it's going TERRIBLY would be an understatement! There are serious sleep disruptions and little to no napping! It's dreamy! When I tell you that his sleep is disrupted I mean this: He went to bed last night at 10:30 after an hour of popping out/putting in. Every excuse in the book was given - "I need water. I need milk. I watch TV. I need new diaper. I need read book. I need Mommy's bed." Then I (or Karl) will leave the room and thirty seconds later: thwack of feet on floor. Pitter Patter. Pitter Patter. Door open. "Mommy? Why Nate out of bed?" (Yes, that is what HE says. It would be HILARIOUS if it weren't my child. Okay, it's still pretty hilarious.) Anyway, then he rises (for the day) at 5:45 in the AM. His normal rising time is 6:30 so you'd think 5:45 wouldn't be terrible but IT IS!

I think part of it is my fault. We've kind of have a chaotic environment going on.

Exhibit A:

There was a lot of "You're going to have to sleep in your crib if you don't stay in bed" talk which was NOT working. So, we took the plunge and just got rid of the crib. I think we were just holding on to that crib for ourselves. We are offering one option for sleeping and a clean, calm room. Surely that will do it, right? HA.

No, really, I'm sure it will calm down (ish) in the next couple of weeks. I alternate between laughing about it and wanting to cry into my tenth coffee cup of the day.

And this is why Elizabeth was in her crib until she was (get ready) 3 and a half.

(Our children are hilariously awesome.)

I feel ya. Nash's transistion was rocky at first and at times still can be (meaning sometimes he still gets up at night and wants in our bed). The only good thing I have to tell you is it will and does get better. Now when Nash doesn't have a stopped up nose and a cough he will sleep in his bed all night but I still stay with him in his room until he falls asleep or else he would get up a million times too. Hang in there.

Every time I see robots I think of Nate. I was in Baby Gap the other day and there was a shirt with a robot on it and I wanted to get it for him! Good luch with the big boy bed. I'm sure he'll catch on...at some point :)

ooooh. you are not helping my chicken-ness about moving G (at age 3! what is wrong with me?!) to the big girl bed.

god help me, i laughed through this entire thing. and you're right, it's pretty hilarious since he's not my child. ;) but seriously, folks, you're doing great, mama. nater boots (and karl) are lucky to have a lady in their lives with such a great sense of humor and determination! love you, button!
