Single Child...

Andrew and I have never had just one child. We dove into this parenting thing IN THE DEEP END. Meaning, we adopted our two kids at the same time... a package deal... boy/girl, brother/sister, big kid/baby. We went from quiet, clean apartment and sleeping in to a loud, cluttered apartment and way too early mornings overnight.

So this weekend has been quite odd. Daniel is spending a couple of days with Grandma and Grandpa and his best bro... his 5 year old cousin. (Click here to read more about these soul mates.) With just one child around its been pretty quiet. At least, during the day time.  At night time, well, that's another story. Lily and our sleeping saga (or rather, NOT sleeping saga) has reached a new low.  I won't admit the details, but let's just say I was worried that our neighbors would call the police.  Our girl is LOUD.

We've been having a very sleepy quiet day with our little girl, trying to repair the damage caused by another stressful, sleepless night with baking, snuggles on the couch and a marathon hair session.  Wish us luck for this evening. Or, send me the Super Nanny's phone number, if you have it. :)

In the meantime, these boys are having the best time with their devoted Grandparents: spaghetti and meatballs, pancakes, model train adventures, a trip to the aquarium, probably some i-pad game playing... I have a feeling Grandma and Grandpa will need a few days rest after a weekend with these two.

Hope you all are enjoying some peaceful nights as the end of the year approaches!
