Woes of Motherhood

I have been blessed with great sleeping babies...until recently. One week of all of us being sick was all it took to regress to baby-just-came-home-from-the-hospital sleeping patterns. Take tonight for instance. I give the exhausted kids their baths and put them to bed at the typical 7pm. Usually, it would be sing a song, say a prayer, tuck them in bed... 3 minutes, tops. I then skip down the steps singing silent 'yippees' in my head after surviving yet another day. Tonight, after 59 minutes of rocking, frustrated lullaby singing, screaming/crying (by them), and a pounding headache...they're STILL AWAKE.
