Which of course meant hardly anyone has been getting good sleep.
The mister and I have actually been trading off mornings, in the mornings. Like he got more sleep overnight, so he woke up with Bo (who tends to get up before the sun) on Sunday. Then when P., who kept me awake overnight with her coughing and fidgeting and fussing, woke up I got up with her to relieve the mister. And he went back to bed until nearly noon.
That's when I finally said, Okay you guys, you can go upstairs and get your papa. P. and Bo had to don sunglasses first.
We ended up all back in bed jumping around and tickling the little ones and relaxing together. It was a great way to start the day.
I've done my best to keep my bedroom relaxing. The rest of the house might be a chaos of toys and books and computers, too, but the bedroom is basic. No television, as little clutter as possible, a few books, and a clean floor. Keeping it an oasis is a process, for sure. (Laundry is my nemesis.) And things are always changing. Like here is a before and after of my nightstand:
Here's a closer look:
I think maybe it's time for a new house tour. So much has changed since my last one that it almost seems like a different house when I look back. The big stuff is pretty much the same but the layouts and the small stuff have changed bunches.
So what do you keep on your nightstand?
