The last 24 hours have been a reminder why many people choose to space their children farther apart than we have decided to.

2 bloody noses
1 delayed nap (makes it hard to eat lunch when the child is still awake)
First time going to a restaurant and partaking in "kids eat free"... that was a good thing
1 family trip to the grocery store that we were all too tired to make
Roughly 10 hours of bickering with my also exhausted hubby
5 hours of sleep?
Getting puked on in the middle of the night
A few braxton hicks contractions

Basically, it comes down to the fact that our house is trashed, but we're both too tired to really fix it. I tried yesterday during nap time, but tidying house involves a lot of bending over and that's getting increasingly less comfortable, so I could only manage it for like 30 minutes. So we had a very tired fight about getting the house clean, managed to clean a little and then stayed up too late reading (I'm not really sure why on the last one). Then Scott was his usual needy self overnight, but we were both feeling entitled so neither of us really took the lead on tending to him. Then after about 45-60 minutes (don't have a clock in the bedroom so that I don't know how long it's been) of being awake around 1am, I got puked on. Scott fell asleep shortly after, but I still had to deal with changing my PJs, washing my arm, and changing my pillow case. It was just gross. And of course Scott woke up like an hour earlier than normal, so I got up too.

I'm having a rough day.

4 months to go. I don't expect this to get any easier.
