Sleep is overrated anyway?! ๐Ÿ˜ด

It’s the eve of the first day back at school and none of my kids feel like sleeping at all! ๐Ÿ‘

The big boys are squabbling and fighting in their room and after telling them them to calm down around 17 gazillion times at 12.30am they finally give in and shut up! The rope and gaffer tape worked a treat! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Before they did actually calm down they managed to wake The twins up. Yippee! Thankfully they dozed on the sofa for a bit, whilst I pottered around getting all the school uniform prepared and bags etc

About 1am who’s that I hear bounding along the passageway …. u got it The Tornado ๐ŸŒชheard there was a baby party going on in the lounge and didn’t wanna miss out!

He thudded down the stairs trampled on his sleeping brother, waking him up and proceeded to steal his sisters bottle from her mouth….therefore waking her up. All three up and all hell let loose!! FFS of all nights I could have done with some sleep for a clear head in the morning?! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I hadn’t eaten, or showered. I was still wearing my day clothes and was sooooo fecking tired even before all the baby shenanigans tonight I was absolutley knackered!

After much sssshhhhh-ing and NO be quiet they kept teasing me snuggling up for a brief quiet moment and then springing to life again with yet another second wind.

Tornado was clattering his pissing Ninky Nonk toy around the fooor and crashing it as loud as possible. Then his whale toy was rammed repeatedly into the side of my head (he has a thing for doing this) Then he grabbed a chunk of my hair from my head and yanked out a clump Just for fun. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

I shoved the night garden on repeat on the tele box ๐Ÿ“บ with barely any volume. Not ideal I know but at 2am I was pretty desperate for them to settle down so tried milk, blanket, cuddles ..all to no avail.

At this point Bam Bam had star-fished on one of the sofas and had gone back to kip ๐Ÿ˜ด 1 down 2 to go!!

Meanwhile Pebbles had turned into bloody ‘spider girl’ she was teetering on the edge of the radiator and flinging herself off the sofa bouncing. Then balancing upside down on her head.

I was getting to the end of my tether. It was 3am now so I’m pleading with Tommy to be quiet and go to sleep. Literally begging him in desperation with tears streaming ๐Ÿ˜ญ down my face. Saying that mummy REALLY needs to go to sleep now. So I turned tv off cause that plan didn’t work. After being handed the remote a several hundred times and Tornado flicking the light switch on and off like a strobe effect …… the neighbours probably think we were actually having a fucking disco.

Around 4am ish both Pebbles and Tornado finally gave in! 3 hours before we needed to get up for school.

Ah, So much fun we had๐ŸŒช๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ฉ lol

Thanks for reading (congrats if you got this far!) I’m all out of rants …..for now! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Love L x

Midnight Ramblings

Random thought of the day popped into my head. I have created 5 beautiful, loving children. So in all 50 tiny fingers and 50 tiny toes! Now that’s a lot of digits…… โœ‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿคš๐Ÿปโœ‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿคš๐Ÿปโœ‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿคš๐Ÿปโœ‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿคš๐Ÿปโœ‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿคš๐Ÿป

It dawned on my as my 41st birthday is rapidly approaching…how Scary ๐Ÿ˜ฑAm I really that old? Old enough to be married and have birthed 5 kids?!? Lol ๐Ÿคฃ One minute I’m throwing some serious shapes at the local discotheque, where I met Mr Maddog โค๏ธ! I was a spring chicken back then at 19 years of age, way back in the 1990’s…….the next minute, in the blink of an eye, I’m the wrong side of 40 and more like an old nesting hen! I’ve not slept more than 5 hours a night in 6 months, not washed my hair for 2 weeks (grim but true) and I’m looking like I got dragged through a hedge backwards (twice). I ache from my eyeballs To my little toes BUT being mum is so rewarding it’s worth all the pain, upset, tiredness and emotional turmoil. 

As what we get in return from our kids in love & laughter FAR outweighs all that other stuff. We created life (lots of it!) and what a whole range of personalities they all are!! 

My kids amaze me everyday (even though the big ones can be little shits sometimes ) They test our patience to the max till you think your gonna explode but they also melt my heart with their clever, funny antics ๐Ÿ˜I find myself often singing strange random songs out of nowhere? Dancing round the living room like I’m having some kind of convulsion ๐Ÿคฃbut hey who cares we do have a laugh! Chuckling away at someone trumping rather loudly (yes I still find that funny!) Living with 4 boys and the hubby, unfortunately it’s a house full of flatulence! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ˜ท I admit I’m quite immature at times but hey who wants to be a boring grown up anyway?! 

Now I have my little lady in my life too in amongst all this testosterone. I love all my boys dearly but a pink one at last!๐Ÿ’• …..   somehow I think she will be the boss of them all and have them all wrapped around her little finger (probably the middle one) ๐Ÿคฃ She will be a tomboy just like her mumma. 

So on reflection of my random thoughts tonight …….. cherish every waking moment with your babies they don’t stay little for long. Enjoy them, play games with them, act silly with them and make memories. 

Enough of my rambling on, its 2am and I’m trying to get Little Miss Annie to settle as she’s not well. I desperately need my beauty sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปso until next time it’s goodnight from her and good night from me.๐Ÿ˜˜ xxx
