I simply cannot take the night time drama in the boys' room anymore. In truth, I don't care if they sing and dance and throw a party until midnight, as long as they stay in there and I don't have to do anything about it. But, it's creeping later and later when they fall asleep, and Mark gets up EARLIER in the morning when he doesn't get to sleep at a decent hour. EARLIER. Like, before 6am. And Tom doesn't get up with him. He just simply will.not.drag.his.butt.out.of.bed to get up with the kid so I can sleep. So I'm up at night, doing housework and then some sanity time, and then I lay in bed until after midnight, just wide freakin' awake b/c I can never, ever sleep when I'm pregnant. Then I have to wake my happy self up at 6am to change a wet sleepy diaper, dress a whiny, clingy, overtired toddler and start the day while trying to keep Mark from waking up his brother. And the days keep getting more and more unhappy, b/c Mark is so tired and whiny from the start now.....
Tonight, MT was asleep when Tim went down at 8:15, but the room is a mess. I stepped on something, it made noise, and UP he came. Tim then proceeded to get up about 3 times to pee, and then decided he needed the door wide open, so MT has been standing there, talking and chatting and calling to me. It's NINE OCLOCK AT NIGHT. These kids are supposed to be in bed at 7pm and 8pm respectively, and tomorrow is going to SUCK SUCK SUCK.
