Is this Blog all about Devin?

I feel I am leaving the other kids out. Hmm. Well lets see. James got a 100% on his first Spelling test and bunch of bonus questions. Other moms helping in Trey's class love him to death. OK enough about the other kids. The real nightmare right now is Devin. Yes, Devin. Can you believe it? Our perfect baby has snapped. He has turned into a holy terror when it is nap time or bed time. What happened you say? I don't know! He takes a bottle and says good night one day and then is refusing a bottle and screaming for three hours the next. Yes that bad! The only way he has had a nap the past week is if he crashed in the car, and the only way he has fallen asleep the past week is if he lays down with me in the TV room or I sit in his room till he falls asleep. Ugh! I tried the Supernanny thing by moving closer and closer to the door. It worked once or twice but I don't think he really realized I had left the room. What happened to him? Did he have a nightmare that scared him really bad? Was a new tooth the culprit? Was I to blame for letting him fall asleep in the living room twice(just twice I swear)? One thing is for sure. He is way to stubborn to go back to the way things were. I am having a hard time transitioning. I have not gotten anything done. Even when he is laying down crying you would think I could get something done, but just when you think you haven't heard him.....maybe he is asleep... has the cycle been broken... is there relief.....Whaaaa. Nope. Hmmm now what are the other kids doing. James has three teeth missing on top and Trey is a lazy dresser. How hard is it for a 4 year old to get dressed? I ask myself.

Keep the your chin up Heather! Just think, He can't do this for too long, right? I like the picture though.

Ugh!! I always have said that I could make it through the day if I, oops I mean, you kids, took a nap! This is not funny.....this requires serious intervention! Bribes, ear plugs, drugs! (just kidding!) Hang in there. Alex is right. He can't keep this up for too long, so be prepared for him to start catching up on the sleep he's missing. How does a 14 hour nap sound? Love ya! Mom

Yikes! Sounds like my life with Crew for the first 7 months or so. Crew if definitely doing better though so there is hope! I can definitely feel your pain though. Is Devin still in a crib? It's a little easier when they are in a crib and "contained". Geez Heather I don't know what to tell you except I feel for ya babe! Love ya! Ange
