  1. Whew! I don't think I could do it anymore - I guess that's why young people have babies.

  2. Hang in there. I agree with Bermudaonion.....I am to old for all of that but that is why you are 33 or 34 and having babies:)

  3. Em breastfed every 30-45 minutes until she was about 6 months old. Then she stretched it to 90 minutes or so. I was so tired that I would forget which boob I gave her first and boy would she remind me. My feeding logs were hysterical to look at later because they were in some weird, unknown language.

    I was a milk machine... when I pumped I pumped about 15 ounces a shot so I know she was getting plenty but man!!

    Your schedule reminded me of those days. I had an independent 5 year old that took care of himself though. You still have the two boys on top of everything. God bless you.


  4. Boy, does that bring back memories of when I had 4 little ones and a husband who worked out of town all week. I hear you!!!

  5. Oh yeah--that's one of the reasons I didn't have any more kids! It's amazing that children survive their early lives with sleep-deprived moms!

  6. That sounds like a rough night, but what an adorable photo of the boys sleeping!

  7. Please don't hit me! :) This, too, shall pass. Someday. Yet, all too soon. If you blink a couple of times your children will be grown and gone away from home. And, then, all too soon your grandchildren will be grown. Really - just a few blinks.

    I am sorry you are having to do all this by yourself.

  8. Just realized how glad I am that I have only one in diapers. I feel for you and all I have to say is thank God for starbucks sometimes :) It is a great picture of the boys though!

  9. My nights will soon be like that. At least the late night feedings. :-)
