What Happened?

I need coffee...no, seriously I do.

And we have run out of coffee at home. Neither Ray nor I thought to stop by the store to get any last night.

And then we had TWO kids who refused to go to bed last night.

Audrey, who normally is a read two books and put her in her crib, decided she would fight us tooth and nail last night. Finally, after almost two hours of trying to get her to calm down and go to bed and Ray and I taking turns working our magic, she went to sleep.

Ashley had a few crying fits in between there as well. Until she finally crashed. Not until after I went in her room at some point and she told me:

"Mommy, I don't like being by myself."

I don't either Ashley, I really don't.

Running out of coffee is a fear and I buy a huge thing of coffee EVERY time I'm at Target--I swear, I have at least 6 containers in the cabinets :)

I've been a single parent the last two mornings with no time to make coffee. I feel your pain. Luckily there is a starbucks on the way to work.

I would kill to be alone.

I know what you're going through! My 8 month old has decided to start waking around 11pm to have a 2 or 3 hour party before going back to sleep. Coffee is a must!

Ashley is so cute! LP's molars are coming out and he's still having a bit of a cold plus jetlag so putting him to sleep has been hellish the past week. He won't fall asleep till 11pm.
I'm alone for a week and my two boys get back from Italy tomorrow so, this mamma won't be getting enough sleep soon!:-)
Hope they sleep better in the coming days.

Poor you.....Really I sympathathize. Even with my rowdy bunch of non sleepers lately.
I agree with Ashley I don't like being by myself either.
And coffee? I live off the starbucks down the street!

Both of you have my sympathy.

One needs caffeine, especially what you had to endure..

Lawyer Mama said...

We had one of those nights too. And I am one cranky mama if I don't get my sleep!

I switch off sugar free rock star energy drink, five hour energy drink , coffee, diet coke plus.... Oh it takes caffeine ....it really does. I don't like being myself.... you'll have to write that in her scrap book.
We just had a blanket made quoting my sister..."it's so hard to be 4" of course she was turning 40 but we put a pic of her at 4 on the blanket.

One of these days the bedtime routine will get easy. That's what I tell myself every single night.
