I have to admit I have lost my touch this week with my kids sleeping schedule, mainly because when the baby takes a nap I tend to get involved in other things and forget that I should really limit that nap to 2 hour or less or at least he should be up by 3 pm. UGH! Did I not learn my lesson with the first two kids?
Anyway, to make matters worse I also let my little peanut (6) watch a movie in bed. Usually TV is not allowed until weekends but I figured swimming made her tired, she did all her homework and the few chores she gets to do after dinner; surely she'll drop off before the movie has a chance to get going....WRONG!! She came down the stairs around 9:3o pm, 90 minutes after she went to bed, I mean, to watch TV. The problem with this scenario was that the baby was also awake...huh! The baby, he's really a toddler who happens to be really wrapped around his mommy's leg like a little monkey.
Lately that little monkey has a way of saying "betos, betos" and laying his wet sloppy kisses all over my face. Betos by the way is his way of saying besos in Spanish which means kisses. I can't even get angry, they are so loving and so cute.
However, we have a very tired mommy, daddy is already snoring and so are the teens and the two young children wanting more attention, affection, a book read, a song and a prayer. I was lucky to make it through the first few lines of her book. Why are they so wired? The darn TV! It's out of the room then I wont be tempted to quiet them down with the boob tube and as for those naps, I must keep them between 11 and 3, no later.
They are now both in bed, quiet, listening to classical music and hopefully falling into a deep slumber. I'll stay up until I know they are asleep, for sure this time. In the mean time I am going to relax with some tea and my PC.
