Because, sigh, mine have been challenging. Ds, who NEVER EVER wakes in the night, has been up for the past 2 nights in a row wanting to climb into the big bed. Both times he's said he had a nightmare. First night, I'm sure that's what it was because I could hear him thrashing around in his room. Last night....well....I'm not sure i'm buying it. I've tried to talk to him about jealousy because his 2 little sisters are now in my bed (dh moves to dd1's bed in the night) but either he's not grasping the concept, not experiencing this, or not admitting to this. He says he's cold, which he could very possibly be, but the timing is interesting. Four in our queen size bed is just not physically possible.
Dd1 has also been somewhat of a pill. Not really toward the little sister, but toward me. Of the two, I guess that's the better option, but it makes for one crabby mommy. Any patience that she has developed in the past 3 1/2 years is GONE. Didn't help that my first day of managing all 3 by myself included 2 trips to the pediatrician and dh working extra late.
Tell me I'm not alone.
