Day 5 (I'm losing it)

Today is the fifth day and new morning of the adventure with the grand babies (Rug Rat 3 & 4) and also Rug Rats 1 & 2.

I have about now lost all sanity from the fun and good times. I remember now why God gives most of us especially me the gift of children when we are young and have patience/nerves of steel. God was smart this way. I keep reminding myself that this only happens about twice a year. This is the number 2 time and I will make it through. Please know that if you do not see me around for a week or so I am thinking of you. Please think of me as I curl into a ball on the floor in the fetal position and cry in frustration and despair.

I have lost enough sleep that I feel like a walking zombie. I am going through the motions only. I am so tired sleep doesn't come fast enough or last near long enough. What is sleep anymore? I seem to recall what it was like if I concentrate hard enough but when I try to concentrate someone interrupts me tattling on someone else. I am stepping on the bags that hang from under my eyes with each zombie step I make across the room. Damn it hurts.

My smile has turned into a slight grimace and frown. Which I know will soon become a bark followed by a jaw breaking bite. Which will takes heads off in an instant. I only hope I do not eat my young.

I look and feel like death warmed over. Calgon take me away.

Oh, hold on, sweetie, it'll be over soon! They are always so much cuter when you can give them back to their parents at the end of the day, :)

Then again, they could live with you all the time like my granddaughter does. I'm more or less used to it after 15 months, but there are still days when I feel like I'm losing it, too.

Want some duct tape?

I get my 2 year old grandson in September for 4 days while his folks go on a cruise. He is quite the handful right now. I think daughter is getting a little nervous over leaving him with me! :)

Sounds to me like you're going to need some serious pampering once the rugrats are gone. You poor thing! Sleep deprivation does strange things to us, doesn't it? Hang in there girlfriend!
