Last night was a combination of an intensely played chess match and a game of musical chairs/beds…. in HELL.
Here’s the blow by blow:
11:40pm Jack wakes screaming (leg cramps), Kat->Jack.
1:30am Jack wakes screaming again, waking Peter. Kat->Jack, Jeff->Peter.
2:30 Peter and Jack back asleep, Jeff -> bed.
5:30 Peter awakes screaming, Kat->Peter (!).
6:00am still can’t get Peter to sleep, Kat & Peter -> bed with Jeff.
6:15am Jack awakes crying for mommy, Kat->Jack, Jeff stays in bed with Peter.
7a Jack awakes, Jeff & Jack -> downstairs, Kat->bed with Peter.
8am Peter awakes, Jeff & Peter -> downstairs.
8:30 Katherine awake, Jeff->work, all cranky kids -> Kat.
The (!) chess notation is because usually it’s Jeff->Peter for the 5:30 scream… thanks Katherine! Though it was all for naught when the kids countered with the 6:15 Jack gambit, which Jeff tried to head off to no avail.
