Today was just another day. Usual stuff, we had a great doctors appt w/good stuff to report (if I have time I will share it tonight, otherwise I will share it tomorrow) but other than that really it was just plain Jane day.
At 3:00 I realized Callum is still asleep, Rachel is getting tired, and Harmon will also be going down for his nap. If I timed it all masterfully I might have 15 minutes to myself until a 4:00 appt came to the house.
3:05 Cally woke up at but that was doable, 2 were going down, all was not lost!
3:10 or so I was rocking Rachel when Cally started SCREAMING bloody murder (he was constipated again). This woke up Rachel. She was wired... so now I have an upset kid and wide awake kid. So I put her in her crib hoping she would just fall asleep.
3:25 After getting nowhere comforting Cally and having the lovely pleasure of putting in a suppository. It was time to put Harm down. He was excited. He went right to bed, kissed me good nap, and said "night night".
3:30 After still getting nowhere comforting Cally, Rachel began to scream. Now I started to worry b/c I was suddenly outnumbered but at least Harm was down.
3:45 Harm began to scream and of course I had gotten no where comforting two twins who were each PO'd for different reasons so I go and check on Harmon... THIS IS WHEN I ALMOST DIED... the boy was covered in poop. He had for the first time ever taken his diaper off and decided to play in a poopy diaper rather than tell me he had pooped. The good thing is that he hated this feeling and was deeply disturbed.
Just a recap... so now I have a tot covered in poop, another child who can't poop and is beyond comfort, and an overtired little princess, w/a 4 o'clock coming in about 10 mins. So when my 4:00 came I had Harmon in the tub, Cally just had a 2nd suppository, and Rachel was still PO'd.
It all worked out. I got the room cleaned, Harmo dressed and ready for night night, Cally did poop, but there was one last piece of drama... I had accidently put Rach in Cally's crib and Cally in her crib which is bad b/c Cally's crib hasn't been lowered... right when I was picking up a fallen pacifier under the crib I saw Rachel falling out... but I got her before anything happend!!!! So alas, all is well that ends well.
No I didn't get 10 mins to myself this afternoon (which I rarely do) but I did have a good appt. once it got started. Days like this though make me think maybe I should have my nanny a little later in the day, b/c man when you are outnumbered by 3 in 2 yrs, THEY CAN REALLY KICK YOUR BOOTY!!!!
