I found this via Facebook this past weekend. “Jazz Hands” just kills me!!
Ever since I came across it, I’ve been trying to figure out how I could photoshop what these positions would look like if two babies involved…. Then of course, like many of my other fleeting thoughts – I really had to weigh whether or not I actually had the time to do so.
Life in our house has been interesting these days. Clay and I have been attempting to “sleep train” our babies. It’s hard. I hate it. And consequently, I’m grumpy and sleep deprived.
I thought sleep training was intended to help the parents get more sleep…???
What makes sleep training very difficult is having two babies share the same room. And of course, my horse trainer husband is very psychology-oriented. It’s easy for him to see the path for getting things like sleep training accomplished.
Mommy, on the other hand, has a much harder time with it all…
But a happy side effect of all the commotion around here are all the comical episodes that are occurring. Some of things happen because of the sheer exhaustion, while others transpire just because we are parents.
• Finding my husband rambling on in a chorus of “yayayayayayayayayayayayayayas….”
• Singing “I’m bringing Home my Baby Bumble Bee” in the shower… because the stupid song won’t get out of my head.
• Dancing like penguins to entertain a couple of 10-month-olds. And having the neighbors walk in unexpectedly.
• Coming up with our own nursery rhymes: “My burpin’ king, my burpin’ queen, together they’re the burping team…” is Clay’s pride an’ joy.
And then of course was the recent argument Clay and I were having… In an attempt to be the bigger person, I intervened with a mature solution for mediation. The following is a direct quote – “Clay, I think we need to diffuse this situation. And I’d like to do that by telling you you’re wrong…”
