What a crazy few days I've had!

You ever have those weeks that fly by and you don't even realize it??? I finally got a moment to post this morning and I notice that my last post was on!!!

Anyway, the kids and I have been fighting a cold and Jasmine was home sick from school yesterday. Isn't it amazing how kids have a fever and are not feeling that great but seem to be well enough to bicker and fight with their siblings??? They were both going at it yesterday, I caught myself yelling like a bainshee at one point and then had to remind myself that:

A - It's not right
B - Doesn't even phase them
C - It does not stop the fighting
D - Only thing I get out of it is irritation and a sore throat

Just can't win.

Anyway, before I carry on I want to tell you about Ladybugs and Lilipads, it's this wonderful blog by Sara and they sell the cutest baby outfits and accessories ever.

She's one of my readers and she loved the Fairy House post so she decided to be sweet enough and give my blog friends a discount on their Fairy Pillows. All you need to do is head to her store here, enter the Coupon Code FAIRY and receive 10% discount off any tooth fairy pillow purchases between today and Dec 31. These make wonderful Christmas presents. They also offer FREE shipping for all orders $99 and up.

Here's a few photos of some of the pillows: (You'll have to be patient today, seems that Blogger is PMSing again so I'm having trouble posting pictures)

Aren't those just the cutest Fairy Pillows????

I have the worst headache today and I think it's because I'm not feeling great and not getting sleep either. I can't for the life of me keep Nicholas out of our bed, there's days that he will stay in his room all night but those are so few and far in between that it's seriously affecting my sleep. I need help and I need do you keep a 4 year old in his room all night long???

I've even tried the Super Nanny technique and it does NOT work for us, he keeps saying he doesn't like being alone and is scared.....I've pretty much exhausted all my ideas and thoughts, so now I turn to you, all the mothers out there, to give me some tips and tricks.

I got Jasmine off to school and now I'm going to try and lay down for a bit with Nicholas, he's not feeling that great either so we may actually be able to sneak in a good nap.

My slow cooker will be fixing dinner tonight, it's one of the reason why I love using it, days that I'm not well or tired or busy are just so much easier to do deal with when you have the food cooking away for you.

Dinner is Chicken Enchilada Roll-Ups, it's a new recipe so we'll see how it turns out.

Hope you all have a wonderful wednesday, I won't get around to visit any blogs today, maybe tomorrow :)

God Bless,

Those chicken enchiladas look great! I'm counting on the crockpot today too!

Our youngest used to come to our room until she was 5. But I could not stand the kids in my bed all night long. I needed my sleep because of my dayhome and they robbed it if they were in the bed. I just felt too claustrophobic. So we just put a pillow and blanket on the floor beside my side of the bed and when she came in she'd tell me she was there, I'd give her a hug and tuck her under the blanket and we'd both get sleep. She felt safe and I got sleep without feeling like a sardine. It worked great for us.

Oh Sandra,
We struggle with the bed thing with Halle too. She doesn't do it every night but probably 1 time a week she sneaks into bed and I usually don't even feel her. She's like a little sneak- creeping into our bed!
Hope you feel better soon.

I hope you all are feeling better soon! I don't have any experience w/dealing with a kid who won't stay in bed, we've been blessed as Kayla stays in bed and sleeps through the night! So I don't even have any advice to offer as I'm not sure what I would do in that situation! Hope you get it figured out soon so you can go back to sleep!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Sandra,
Hope you feel better soon.

Courtney said...

I really wish I had some advice on the sleeping situation but girl I need some too! We wake up to at least 2 kids in our bed sometimes 3!! My back hasn't been normal for months. Hope you guys are feeling better today!

My only suggestion... can you get him to tell you, what he's scared of? If he has a solid-to-him reason, maybe then you can get somewhere with changing the pattern?

And I figure, he has a night light or 2 or 3... So I won't even ask that.
