Have You Ever Seen A Mom Do A Backflip Off The Bed...

without waking up the sleeping angels? Well, if you were in my bedroom about 5 minutes ago, you would have seen this amazing feat! My heart is still racing from the experience.

So, I am sitting in my big snugglie bed, minding my own business, reading my fave blogs while listening to HGTV and the sleeping sounds of my two snoozing sickly angels. Out of the corner of my eye, I see something run across my bed, making a bee-line towards my feet. Eeek! It is a horrible, nasty spider! Quick back flip and then I am off the bed and ready to do battle with the eight-legged freak! (Think bad martial arts stunts) The first thing I can grab is my phone and I am racing around the bed, trying to kill the deadly beast before it harms one of my babies! Well, several minutes later, the awful creature is nothing more than a greasy spot on my freshly made bed (see last post in regards to why my bed is freshly made), I am about ready to faint from the realization that I just took on one of my worst fears, and my sleeping beauties have not even stirred! Quite an accomplishment, if I don't say so myself.

As I try to get settled into bed again with a nice glass of cold milk and a piece of cake to get my energy levels back up...a towel covering the dreaded spot until the snoozing sweeties wake back up...the 4 month old wakes up and wants to nurse!

No rest for the weary...

I Hope It's Not Another Repeat!

After spending last week taking care of one sick kid after another, I was so excited to have Saturday and Sunday under the belt with no sickness! Being cooped up in the house the past few days, I was dying for some fresh air. So, we went to a local farmer's market, an outdoor antique market, Church and brunch. It was also really nice. All of the kids had big appetites for a change and I was looking forward to a good nights sleep.

Last night, I fed Bryleigh and was playing with her in my nice snuggly bed when she suddenly covered everything within spewing, bed, nightstand, cradle, floor, walls, etc. After the huge clean-up, she was hard to get back to sleep and fit-full through the night. Bleary eye-ed this morning, I woke up to her smiling face and the news that Kadence is running another high fever and has "die-a-ree-a". Lovely!

I hope this isn't the start of another long and yuck filled week!

(Right now, the three of us are camped out in my bedroom. Bryleigh is napping, Kadence is watching cartoons, and I am blogging. Who knows how many times I might post today...)
