Tired, tired, tired

I gotta get these boys to sleep all night for a few nights in a row to recharge myself I think. The boys have had a run of colds, unusually for them, and the last one has left them both with a fairly chesty cough.
Last night at about 8.30pm Mr 3 woke up in a tizz, which very quickly degenerated into an all out screaming meltdown, that went on so long it actually woke up big brother. 
 So now two kids awake and mum's plans to do various house and kitcheny things all evening fly out the window. That's when I'm already kinda tired from whoever it was that woke up the last two nights.
I can't remember who, I'm thinking they tagged teamed it.
 I do remember one of them was Mr 6, who woke up sobbing because he dreamed he lost his Milo cricket bag. Right.
Add to that two wet beds in row from Mr 3 and a lot of rain, so wet bedding draped everywhere and occasionally stuffed into the dryer. 


Today Mr 6 came home and told me they've been watching High School Musical at school. 
Actually, he told me they finished watching it today, as they watched the first part yesterday.

This is a film about American teenagers and their relationships.

I cannot see in any way, shape or form how this is appropriate viewing for a class of 5 and 6 year olds.
Aside from the fact I don't send him to school to WATCH TV.

I am beyond annoyed.

Now, just to remind myself I do love being a mum, even when I'm tired and my kids are sending me round the bend, I give you this photo: 

Mr 3 year thought Buzz Lightyear and Zurg could do with a makeover. 
Much improved, don' cha think?

That was before he started jumping off the desk onto my bed. 
The last time of which he landed oddly and rolled round in laughing agony saying he'd broken his jacks crackers.


Lord give me patience and let my children sleep all night. Please.

How 'bout I swap you your two for one 8 year old who has learnt how to push his sisters' buttons?! He is sooo in danger of being strangled by them - or me if I get there first. I do hope you get a good nights sleep - it does make the world of difference.

Love Lou

Sounds like you ALL need some decent sleep.

Love the blending of Buzz and Zurg! (TS2 is one of my favourite movies of all time)

We are plague household here too. Little Miss woke up Monday night spewing. continued through to Tues morning. Thought she was all good then last night she vomits in her sleep, I check on her and find it dried and crusted in her hair and all through her jammies. Sigh.
Hope you get some sleep soon.

Hope you've managed to catch up on some sleep and are feeling human again? My lot come home from school too telling me they watched TV. NOT GOOD. I get cross too. Little good it does me though. The school will probably say it was for music or drama. *sigh*
