Early Start

my day started early.... really early.... so early some would call it night

been asleep less than an hour.... felt that feeling you get when someone is standing over you

it was Elijah- 12:26 a.m. - he could barely talk and had a sore throat  he said he might throw up --- I gave him some Tylenol and he crawled in bed with us and went to sleep. 

i lay there waiting for the vomit

fast forward to around 2 a.m. -- same eeery feeling like someone was standing over me

it was Isaiah- he had a bad dream- again- foxes chasing him- again - he crawled in bed with us- again

the potential for a fight briefly presented itself- Elijah was in Isaiah's spot

i convinced him that my side was better than the middle- he curled up and went to sleep

i tried--- and i tried--- but their growing legs, feet, elbows and hands seemed to continually be taking aim at my body

so i dozed until WHAM - bullseye from one of them

then, the alarm went off- at 4:30 a.m.

i wish i could tell you i was a good little girl and spent the time talking to my heavenly Daddy-

i didn't

i kept thinking the gang's all here- almost- i actually wished shayne would come climb in bed too--- it has been a while since we got to snuggle with him

i just lay there going back and forth between mishing shayne and wishing for sleep-

and the quiet little camper in New Jersey :)
