OMG. Ben worked from 6:30 this morning until 8:15 tonight because he had meetings after class. While that must have sucked for him, OMFG I WAS HOME ALL DAY WITH 4 KIDS. Well, I had 4 kids from 6:30-8:30, 2 kids until lunch time, 3 kids until late afternoon, and 4 kids from 3:30-bedtime. So today, bedtime was at 6:15 (Cooper), 6:25 (Jack), and 7:15 (Harry). Dorothy did not enjoy supervising Cooper and Jack's rowdy bath from the comfort of the Ergo, so she screamed from 6-6:30 and then nursed and burped from 6:30 to 8 when she finally passed out. I am currently stuck under her.
As soon as we had Dorothy, no screen time before age 2 became Sesame Street whenever the baby needs to eat.
But we made it a whole day. Pizza delivery for dinner. Too much TV. Lots of time in the basement playing. I read a whole book from my nest on the couch. And Ben's home tomorrow.
