A debt of graitude from Drake, and his wonderful blog.
Also found him on Facebook
He recently wrote about the 2 games that his child plays the best. 1 is pooping in a brand new diaper. 2 is waking up as soon as placed in the crib.
OMG! My sons all did the same damn thing!! No sooner did I change a diaper, and HERE COME THE GRUNTS!! And no lengthy chorus of "OH HELL NO" from you will change a thing. (cept another diaper!)
And I swear that there is some magical hidden button, on my kids dupa, that triggers them to wake INSTANTLY upon being placed in their cribs. All 3 did it. I used to fall asleep holding them, I was so tired. Then, I'd wake up, se them sleeping, and gently set them in their crib. As soon as I thought I'd get some rest - BAM - "Hey daddy!! Wanna play for another hour??" And once again, no lengthy chorus of OH HELL NO will convince them to go back to sleep.
For those of you still tuned in - I still have 3 little dark lords of the sith running around. 6yrs, 4yrs, and 1(almost 2) yrs old. I am STILL the stay at home parent, and with the exception of a slight crack under stress this early summer, love the job. During this past school year, the anti was upped as the oldest started kindergarten. No more lazy mornings of getting the 2 oldest to the same preskool by 9am. Oh no - 6am is now the "get up" time, oldest on the bus by 7am (or whenever the hell the bus felt like showing up). One mourning the bus just never showed - so I woke up the other 2, loaded us all in the truck, and headed off to skool. Only to be informed (and wrongly so) that WE must have missed the bus. Oh yeah - our fault. Must have ben daydreaming as we both sat on that corner, completely missing a BIG ASS ORANGE AND YELLOW BUS going by. Needless to say, me and my sarcastic super power are not quite the favorite (or welcomed) at my kids school anymore.
Then I had to have the middle child to his preskool by 9am. Pick up the oldest at 11am, then the middle by 12 noon. THEN it's off to lunch, and nap time (mostly for me).
This year ( 3 weeks from now) will put the screws to me even tighter. 2 of them on the bus at 7am, to be followed by 2 separate pick up times. And I was JUST starting to enjoy this "sleep late in the summer" mirage.
Let's hope the trucks stays running!!
