Titus wanted to make sure that I washed all the kids’ towels tonight.
He took about a gallon of water out of the bathtub and dumped it on the floor. (Now mind you, I was in the office turning on the Olympics for the three younger ones to watch while I washed Grace and Lydia’s hair.) He was having too much fun with the water to hear me calling him. I actually caught him jumping in it like it was a rain puddle.
At this point, I had to ask Grace and Lydia why they didn’t say anything. They gave me blank looks and shrugged their shoulders.
boys…boys…boys…what will they think of next. (Poor Titus, I think Silas was involved too but he was coming out of the bathroom as I walked in…so he looked innocent this time:)
I just walked into their bedroom. Three children are supposed to be taking a rest but instead they climb up into Lydia’s bed and took her valentine candy stash and ate everything. Well, almost everything. If they didn’t like it, they just spit it out on the floor. Oh my – this did not go over well with this momma.
What to do with the triplets?
Carl just walked into their room and they were all out of bed again…ahhhh…they wear me out!
You see – they all don’t need a nap every day but I need them to rest everyday so that I get a break.
I have to remind myself that someday they will be bigger and beg to take a nap. I planned some of my college semesters so that I could take a nap. I love to nap and feel so much better if I can close my eyes for even just 20 minutes each day. That doesn’t happen much any more, but when I can get it, I take it.
We are home to the chaos of life! It feels great to be out of the hospital!
We are praying, Lord willing to go home today.
Jack started out the night rough because he kept setting his monitors off and they are LOUD! (so the nurses down the hall can hear it with the door closed). His stats kept dropping down to 88 -89% and thus set the alarms off since he needs to stay above 90%. By the time I would stand up and check on him, he would bring himself back up to 91%. We must have played this game about 40-50 times between 10pm -12:30 am.
I was getting weary. I knew they wanted to put him back on oxygen and that meant we would have to start over on the 24 hour w/o to get out of here. I fell asleep only to wake up an hour later to a very hungry boy and his oxygen monitor off. My mind was completely confused – I slept for an hour without hearing the monitor and it was shut off. I nursed my baby and the nurse came in to tell me that the doctor had ordered him to be periodically checked with oxygen not continuously. Hallelujah! No more dipping below the line to set the alarms off. We had a pretty good rest of the night and here I sit to wait for the rounding doctor. Yesterday he only came at 12:45 pm, it might be a long morning.
