Go to Sleep Already!
So last night we go through our regular bedtime routine which is becoming a three ring circus. They brush their teeth and ask for water and use the bathroom and want stories and finally lay down. The boys go up and from downstairs I can hear them talking but I don't hear them walking and besides am majorly nauseous at night now so didn't get up to investigate. My husband goes up to take his shower and discovers that they have placed half their bookshelf in a great big pile in the middle of the room. At least fifty books in a giant pile. That's not all. As per his usual custom lately, the six year old, pulled all of his stuffed toys down under his covers which he untucked and rolled into a ball under which he is also huddled. In an unusual new twist, he pulled his sheet off and tied it to the headboard because "he liked the way it looked." Sometimes I just don't know what to do with them. I took the books out of the room, straighten and tucked the six year old's sheets and blankets again, removed the stuffed toys from the bed and then screamed just enough to scare them from ever doing that again or at least for last night.
