Just once this summer, I would like my kids to go to bed and Shuttest The Forsooth Up! at a decent hour and then sleep in. All 3 kids are awake, P was just falling asleep, but they woke him up with their loud fighting, which means he won't fall asleep until after 10pm.

Also, I cannot get anything done all day -- they will not stay in their room for more than 3 minutes (I am not exaggerating) without opening the door to ask me something or tell me something, so I can't read or write or anything. It's either raining or midgey outside, so they won't stay outside for more than about 20 minutes before they buzz the door to be let back in.

Today, they have been especially annoying and I just want to bisque slap the fork out of B & R so badly (don't call CPS, I'm not going to!). It's sad when your needy 3 year old is more independent than your 6 and 8 year old. They used to be great and not annoying at all and went to bed without fighting or fussing. I have not changed their bedtime routine, they just started being crazy.

I can't even shower or take a peas without one of them looking for me. It's great that they think I'm so cool they want to talk to me nonstop all day, but I just want some forking time to myself -- I have been so unproductive. I'm in the third trimester (which is doing nothing for my patience) and would like to get more than 8 hours of sleep, but I am not even getting that without any interruption.

I have banned them from the computer. I can't ban them from reading books (I mean, they already pretty much only read nonfiction as it is) and they pretty much don't play with toys and aren't materialistic, so taking their stuff away isn't a big deal to them.

Mr Crabby can't help (other than putting P to sleep, which is hugely helpful, although P still ends up with me after a few hours and then I have my hair yanked all night) because he is still working on his dissertation.

I think I am just going to start school early for them and they can sit at the kitchen table and do work tomorrow until I stop feeling frazzled.

Rant rant.

OMG, my kids let me sleep in until after 7am and they were quiet enough to not wake up Vax until nearly 8am. It's a forking Christmas miracle! (That and they knew they were in big trouble after last night.)

So, an update: the kids were a LOT better behaved today and are not even fighting or being noisy this evening. The threat of starting school early has worked better than anything else ever. >;D

They should think themselves lucky! Edinburgh schools started back on Wednesday and schools in the neighbouring council start tomorrow.
I hope they continue to let you sleep. I can't imagine doing all that you do, let alone with not enough sleep and no alone time.

I slept in until almost 8am this morning. Amazing! They have been much rowdier than yesterday, but a little extra sleep goes a long way when my patience is concerned.

Well, after 48 hours, the kids are back to their usual shiitake. UGH. I just want a 15 minute nap and they can't stay in their room for more than 90 seconds -- not exaggerating.

Aaaand now I feel bad for complaining (even though I am still tired) because I overheard R saying, "hands up if you know about Windows 9," and B told P and Mr. Crabby that it was a prototype. And R excitedly told me bacterium is the singular for bacteria and told me all about cell regeneration and how last year was the last time he still had some liver cells from when he was a baby.

I woke up early this morning and now I know why my kids have been waking up so early -- the upstairs people. They are very, very nice, but they clonk around above in the morning and then when the lady leaves for work, it involves lots of noise in the hall outside our flat, which is right by the boys' room.
Not much I can do. It's not like I can say they need to tread more lightly in the morning or that she shouldn't use her keys or wear high heels in the stairwell. XD

I'm sure we are just as noisy in the stairwell when we go in and out, it's just not at 6am. Anyway, Mr Crabby got a full time job (!!) and we will be moving after I have the baby, so hopefully when we move, we won't have unintentionally (or intentionally, for that matter) noisy early bird neighbours. :D

Thanks, guys!

Alas, at best we'll be renting a duplex or semi-detached, but my guess is we'll end up in some Victorian flat. We definitely can't afford to rent a fully detached house in the greater Glasgow or Edinburgh area at the moment.
We had two sets of upstairs neighbours when we were in a Victorian flat in Glasgow 9+ years ago; one set was noisy and the other guy was super quiet, but even the noisy ones didn't clunk around early in the morning. Even here, this is the first time in the 8+ years we've been here for us to hear the upstairs neighbours walking around so noisily -- they are just really heavy walkers. (The previous tenant left early in the mornings, but was super quiet.)

Yeah! It will be nice to have income again and it will be nice to get places in under 2 hours. XD

We have pinworms. This is so disgusting and the thought of all the extra necessary cleaning is making me want to curl in a fetal position (not in my wormy home). My kids have been playing all month with my brother's and sister's kids so I felt I need to inform them to be on the look-out. Not a fun conversation to have. I sort of suspect we GOT the worms from my sister's kids...when we were there all 3 of her kids were itching their nether regions and she was telling me about how her kid's always complain about their butts itching but that her pedi can't find anything wrong. She said they did not submit a stool sample or do any paddle testing for worms though.

ICK. May you all be worm-free.

OMG, I am SO SORRY Annasrobbie! My husband & co had pinworms when he was a kid and it sounds like they traumatised him. His sister had them in her butt and vagina. Poor lassie!

Anyway, having heard nightmare stories ever since we got engaged, every time someone says their butt itches, I freak out. From everything I've read it is REALLY hard to avoid if you've been exposed to it and way more common than you would think (but that no one talks about it).

What a nightmare! I'm so sorry! I think it's supposed to be pretty easy to treat, at least?

So my house has never been so clean. Everything has been vaccuumed, mopped, bleached. I have a huge pile of "soft" stuff to either store for a month (pinworm eggs lose their infectivity around 3 weeks I read) or go through my dryer's sanitize cycle. We have all been dosed with pinworm meds which apparently is as near 100% effective as you can get. We just need to strictly adhere to handwashing and try to keep people's hands out of their underwear region...easier said than done!!! I took the day off today so I could recover from my all night cleaning session.

Sebastian is the only one with known worms... and he can't really describe. I read it is primarily just itchy unless the infestation is REALLY bad at which time it can cause some abdominal pain.

Ok, full disclosure. I don't have kids. Co-oped in a kindergarten classroom when I was 17. In my 20s I ended up with pinworms due to a dormant infestation (what the fizzle right?!?!) - I had them and had no idea for years.

One round of over the counter meds and all was well. I can absolutely attest to the fact that they made me itchy but not much else.

Good luck!
