The Great Cry of 2013

 I hope there's not a cry that's greater. Tonight was The Night. We realized that we could not keep on with the not-so-merry bedtime dance of down, up, down, up, down with five different babies (although David is actually really good about going to sleep and staying asleep). Gavin said last night he wished he could grow his hair long so he could pull it out in frustration! Even the babies who have slept pitiful amounts during the day decide, as soon as they realize they are asleep, that it's actually a lot more fun to be awake, when it actually isn't - for them or for us! Everyone is miserable and tired! So tonight we did the whole bedtime routine, put them down, they all fell peacefully asleep (with the exception of Seth, but he got there), and then the screaming started about 15 minutes later. And went on and on. For an hour, in Marcie's case. Wow. She wasn't hungry. She wasn't wet. She wasn't dirty. She just plain old didn't want to sleep. So we kind of lost the battle with her, but four out of five ain't bad, right? Tomorrow night we will meet again, my pretty . . .

David slept through this one, and Isaac was the one getting the babies to look at the camera. He and Gavin had been working on homework and I had quite the nice little social group going on. Sometimes it's really FUN around here!
