It’s already been a long day, if this even counts as a new day at all because it just feels like run off of yesterday. Did I sleep? I think so…
Went to bed at eleven, I think, and fell asleep around midnight. Then the boys were up at 1, 2, 2:30, 2:45, 3:00, 3:30, sometime between 3:30 and 4:00. You get the point. At 4:00 AM Baby A woke up and was wide awake so I took him into the living room with the belief that I would let him jump himself to sleep in the bouncer while I passed out on the couch. An hour into trying to fall asleep and out comes Baby J wide awake and ready to go. Like, what the fuck is this? You guys setting little baby alarm clocks to mess with me now? Baby J proceeds to climb up for cuddles (something that he’s only recently started enjoying) and of course he is positively soaked in pee.
At this point I’m not even cranky anymore. It is more like a Comedy Central roast feeling and I’m just trying to laugh at myself.
So I change Baby J and I get him some cereal which he dumps all over the floor for the dog, and I get him some juice which he swishes around his mouth before spitting it out everywhere. Swell. Another two hours pass and Baby M comes lurking out of his room. He doesn’t feel good, he wants cuddles and cartoons and water, and then he pukes (luckily in the toilet bowl).
My fiancé wakes up for work and I fill him in on the agony that’s been my night and morning, which he wasn’t immune to as he helped through the hours of baby nonsense in the night. After he left, I finally made myself some coffee and made a second breakfast for Baby J who actually ate every bite this time around. Even Baby A ate a bowl of baby cereal (they have some new kind with little bitty bits of apple in it and he eats it with no fussing, gagging or problems of any kind). Poor Baby M has been eating tiny bites of toast and sipping water, I’m sad he’s going to miss a show and tell day because he’s been puking all morning. But as a mom my concern is him and also all of his little friends in school and I don’t want to be the jerk who lets them all get sick as well.
Did I mention I have a consultation with my doctor today? I’m doing the grown up thing and took the first step to getting a mammogram! I’m not excited but I am a little at the same time, it’s important to have yourself checked. If you’re not sure when you should start, make an appointment to talk to your doctor. Catching breast cancer in stage 1 is officially 100% curable so long as it does not spread before treatment. With odds like that there is no point in waiting.
Anyhow, I might sleep through that appointment if I can’t somehow guzzle down six pots of coffee. One down, five to go. Happy flipping Thursday y’all!
