Another me would have been nice today

Zoe and Emily went to school today. Emily was stuffed up this morning, but she was feeling good, so we decided she should go to school (Emily agreed). But after school she came home with a headache and has been sleeping since. Zoe complained of a headache too, but I'm wondering if she just didn't want to put away the dishes since Emily was excused from washing the dishes.

I have spent the majority of my day holding Zach and Kate who are both miserable. It gets interesting when I am holding both of them and they wake each other up with a movement. It becomes a pattern of both of them crying, fall asleep, one of them moves and wakes the other who starts to cry and they both start to cry, fall asleep,... They didn't sleep well last night and I'm not optimistic that tonight is going to be any better.

Poor Eleanor has been bored with no one to play with today. I asked her this morning if she liked it better when Zoe and Emily were home or at school. She thought about it for a minute and then said she likes it better when they are home so she can watch them play. She said that they often won't let her play with them, but that's okay because she watches them play and it's fun! At one point today she wanted me to hold her when I was holding Zach and Kate. She looked so sad when I told her I couldn't. It has been a tough day.

I'm sorry-I know those kinds of days. Tomorrow will be better-you sound like such a patient mom. You're kids are so lucky. :)

I'm so sorry. There is nothing worse then having your kids look at you like you've let them down.

I hope everyone is feeling better soon! Eleanor is so sweet. I'm sorry it was such a long day.

Wouldn't it be great to have octopus arms sometimes?? I hope you don't get sick! Or if you do someone takes care of you. Ha.

Thanks for asking about me - I'm exhausted. Just found out a few seconds ago that Emma and Kate will be born on Sunday. 33 weeks. Too soon. But hope the docs know wha they're doing.
