...and two steps back

Abby has Strep Throat. It's bad. She is so miserable. She so did not want to go to sleep tonight. We finally rocked her in front of the TV and then put her in the swing to sleep while Gary sleeps on the couch. I am thinking I will just bring Olivia in bed with me.

The cereal worked for a few weeks but the past couple of nights have been rough again. It is almost like they figure it out and outsmart us. Oy! Hopefully it is just the sickness that is affecting them and they will get back with the program.

I know I have not been posting like I want. I am busier now than I have ever been with them. They want me to play with them constantly and then fight over my lap whenever I am in the floor with them. Plus, I can't leave them alone for a nano-second because they find the one piece of paper or rock I missed and into the mouth it goes. Or we have an all out tackle fest complete with face planting into the carpet.

I know I owe you all a huge update on what they are doing. It is coming up. Plus, I have a huge brag about Gary. It is a doozie and I can't wait to start on that post.

Tomorrow we are cleaning out the garage. Oh. Heavenly Days. It will be interesting to say the least. I will try to get some before and after pictures so you can gasp and shake your head like everyone else who sees our garage does.
