Miriam is always just so calm and collected as our nanny! Seriously nothing shakes her. Well when I got home she was shaken. For parents the saddest day is when our children can leave a crib on their own. Today our nanny felt that utter sadness!
It was so funny I come home and she is finishing up their stories. After a few cuddles and kisses we put them to nap and I went to my office while she went and got Harmon. They come out of their rooms and I put them back to bed and sit on the couch on guard if they come out again. I fall asleep on the couch...
So Miriam comes back and freaks out. "Do you know what they are doing in there?" Yup my twins were having a frat party in there. Taking turns it took an hour and a half to get them to sleep.
Than Harmon was in such a mood. He wouldn't listen to Miriam or me at all. So we took him to his room for a time out. In that process we locked ourselves into the room! NO JOKE! We had turned the door knobs around b/c he used to lock us out so now the lock is on the outside. We tried looking for something thin to push the lock out but nothing worked. We both always had cell phones on us but neither of us had one so I couldn't call a neighbor even. So we had no choice, poor Miriam climbed out his window b/c we were 100% stuck (all while I was playing "peek-a-boo" b/c we don't want him to learn that he can easily unlock and escape from his window).
It was time for her to leave (she goes home early on some days b/c I work late on others) but we both plopped onto the couch and watched the end of last weeks Project Runway that I had TiVO'd. We need the break! I'm grateful to be able to share these moments with someone as special as Miriam. I would have ripped out my hair had I not had her in the trenches with me.
Later a friend came by and we made some cupcakes. Than Cally woke up. It was so funny. I wasn't ready for him to be up and I had so much work that never got done! I give him the spoon from the batter and he was just so cute. I guess I won't send my monkeys away but I really wish they would just go back to jumping on the bed.
