My plate is full......




I am taking care of Drew this weekend. It has been planned for a long time now. His momma and daddy (naive and mr. naive) are on a canoe trip. I also have Amber this weekend. Today she had an orthodontist appointment at 9 AM. She didn't want to get up. And on top of this, if this isn't already enough, the funeral for my children's grandmother is tomorrow and our daughter and her husband and 3 kids are on the way up here right now.

So when it is time for Drew to go to bed tonight, I will take him to his house and put him to bed there, which means that I will have to stay there overnight also. We don't have enough pac-n-plays to bed two babies down and I think the confusion of it all would just be too much for both babies and neither one would settle down to sleep. And heaven knows that none of us wants to sit up all night entertaining babies!!

I don't have a clue as to when I will have time to post again. Our daughter and her children are staying with us through this coming Wed. before heading back to Kentucky. I suspect that by the time they leave, I will need at least a day to sit and recover.......I'm tired just thinking about all of it!!

Hang in there, Martie. Sounds like an exhausting weekend, especially with the funeral. But there's nothing like looking at a sleeping baby (especially a gorgeous one such as Drew) to make it all worthwhile.

So sorry you are having such a rough time. You need some time to rest for sure. Hang in there and take care.

Hugs,
Connie

Whoa! Sounds way to crazy for me and it doesn't sound like sleep is going to be anywhere in there. Try to find some peace this weekend Martie!

You don't want to stay up all night with babies? Why not? Tee Hee. I hope you have tons of fun with them while getting plenty of sleep.

Shoot Martie...how about 4 more kids? Trish and I need a break too!

I mean...you can't just be nice to your daughters. We're all friends you know?

Darn it! And I was gonna call and see if you keep Adam next weekend....guess you'll be all baby-ed out by then, huh? ;)

Nelly said...

Hello? Are you alive after that weekend?! HA

Blazing Firebird: Some adventure is a good thing ~ too much adventure can harm your health. LOL. Hugs

IJM: It is fun to watch the babies sleep....the only thing is if we go into the room where they are sleeping, they wake up. :(


Mindless Dribbler: Let's see, I think I'm open for Aug. 4-6 if you and Trish want to send the kids here for that weekend! LOL

Chesney Girl: I have already promised Dribbler and Trish the weekend of Aug. 4-6, but send Adam on Aug. 11 and pick him on the 13th!

Nelly: I'm still alive but I don't know how or why!! ;)
