I thought it was suppose to get easier...

but these past few weeks have just about killed me. The babies refuse to go to sleep at night so it turns into hours of screaming, rocking, laying in crib, repeat, repeat, repeat.  Plus, they've both decided that they no longer want to nap, so the daytimes turn into a repeat of the evenings with over tired, screaming, whining, babies. They're so whiney and needy during the day and I have absolutely no time to do anything.

Which doesn't work out too well when I'm taking 5 classes and have an internship, plus job interviews and applications. So I'm incredibly behind, overly exhausted, and I've run out of patience.

Right now as I type I'm skipping a class, but I left the babies with the scheduled baby-sitters anyway and I escaped to the calm and quiet of the library. Now I'm fighting my desire to climb underneath the table and take a nap but I'm going to try and use these extra couple of hours away from the babies to get some work done.

MUST.STAY.AWAKE.

I need help. Again, times like this I so wish we lived by our parents. Who I could pawn off my whiney kids without feeling too guilty about it.

I've discovered that the great thing about parenting is that when you've hit an impossible stage and are at your wit's end, all of a sudden everything changes again and the difficult behavior morphs into something more tolerable. Hang in there. This, too, shall pass, and soon.
