Do you know what is the most awesome thing ever? Going to bed at 9 p.m. and waking up at 8 a.m. I got up and dealt with kids three times, but I think I did it in my sleep.
We got back yesterday from our Minnesota trip. It was wonderful. I loved (almost) every second of it. We really pushed the kids past their usual routines. They were up until 10 p.m. quite often and waking up early and not taking their usual naps. I only changed Andrew when someone would come find me and say he needed it. I think I remembered to feed them (most of the time.) There were cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents roaming about and I just sort of hoped someone was watching my kids while I drank beer in the kitchen.
