No Sleep for Me

Have you ever had one of the those nights where the kids just won't go to bed?? With 5 of them, it seems like some nights they tag team me and I don't get a chance to rest. Last night was a prime example of that.

Nick went to bed nice and early at 7:45. He was pretty beat.
Tori went to sleep around 9 and snoozed.
The rest of the girls just could not fall asleep. By the time Lexie drifted off, it was almost midnight - I'm not kidding. She was needing extra snuggles last night.

I almost got a chance to go to bed. But then Tori woke up at 12:30 with a runny/stuffy nose and would NOT go back to sleep. She is never fussy at night and she's normally a wonderful sleeper.

By 2 a.m., I decided that I might as well take a shower since I was up anyway. I left her in her crib (which is in my room) and hopped in the shower. I was in there just long enough to get completely wet when Nick came knocking on my door - wide awake of course.

So, I ended up laying back down with a very talkative Nick in my bed. He just kept putting his face right up to mine and talking about Thomas the Tank Engine.

Why did this have to be the morning that I promised them french toast and sausage instead of the normal cereal?

Needless to say, I am a bit worn out today. I'm hoping to make up for it tonight....
