So, Joe tells me the kids drove him crazy today while I was at work. I believe him. They are both still awake and protesting bedtime. Z goes to bed at 6:30 normally, Bub is in bed by 7pm. it is 8:30 right now. I just changed Z's wet diaper and rocked and sang to her. She wouldn't settle down, and kept trying to play peekaboo, and pulling off my glasses. Momma said, "no ma'am" and put her back in bed. I also fed them before I put them to bed, as Joe didn't realize the pork chops I prepared (uncooked) was intended for him to pop in the oven to cook to feed the family for dinner.
This working days is not working well for me. My kids get hyper when they finally get to see me, right before the go to bed. hyper and bedtime are not a good mix.
Bub started crying when he heard me get home. I have no idea why. then after lots of hugs and kisses, he got hyper that I was home. after eating he got even more hyper. he started settling down after we did his bedtime routine, but he is still up. I hear him playing w/ his "Leapfrog refrigerator DJ" toy (previously referred to as "anni-oo" d/t song #3 on the alphabet 'channel'). He hums along w/ the songs. his favorites are '20 little leapfrogs', 'Birdie bye bye', and 'the Uppercase letter song'. He used to love 'Anni-oo' and drew pictures of the little guy dancing the "anni-oo" until momma started singing the song all the time and getting him to do the 'Anni-oo' dance with me. Now when I ask him to play "anni-oo" he giggles and plays every OTHER song on this thing.
anyhow. long day. I have 1 day off and then 2 more on. I hope 1 day with momma is enough for the kids to be ok w/ no momma for 2.
Nite & Nubs.
