Last Night

one would think I'd have had an easy night.... but that wasn't the case. The girls didn't want to go to sleep, we did our ritual - brushed our teeth, changed diapers, got PJ's on, read numerous amounts of books, and then I rubbed their backs while they laid in bed. I closed the door and finished up some things downstairs. I went to check on them and make sure they were in their own beds (since Peyton is sick). Instead of moving Sydney into the vacant bed which I usually do... I decided to move Peyton because she would be easier to move..... That didn't happen... She woke up... and she cried lots.... so I calmed her down and left.... I went back to cover them up before I went to bed... and that was another mistake... Peyton had moved back to Sydney's bed and she sat right up when the door opened..... I laid down with her in her bed, and when I got up, she cried more.... so I took her to bed with me and not 3 minutes later Sydney was standing next to my bed wanting up.... So it was 4 in a bed for about 20 minutes... Peyton kept pulling Sydney's hair and kicking everyone because she wanted a better spot.... (i guess) So i took them back to their rooms and laid them down. Sydney laid right down and I laid with Peyton in the other bed, I rubbed Sydney's back while Peyton snuggled with me... Sydney decided that she wanted to snugle too, so we all ended up in one bed again, only a toddler bed isn't made for three. I managed to get Sydney back into her bed and finally thirty minutes later I snuck out and back into my COLD bed.... Ben had went to sleep as soon as I took the girls back to thier rooms... Nice huh...

633 am rolls around and I hear crying.... distinctive crying and I know it's Sydney..... So I figure she just wants to nurse... so I pee first, cuz that's necessary... I go into the girls bedroom and see Peyton asleep on her bed and Sydney no where in sight... covers on the floor and crying, lots of crying so i walk to the other side of the bed... where I only see WHITE PJ FEET sticking out from UNDER the bed.... I have no idea how she got under there.. it was a tight squeeze pulling her out, I was trying to lift the matress (that Peyton was asleep on) up and finally managed to get the crying Sydney out... I wish I would have gotten a picture of that... would have been great... but frantic kid trumps picture.....

and where was Ben while I was saving Sydney.... in bed with the covers over his HEAD
