24: Cookie Crisis Meltdown

The following takes place between 11:38 AM and 12:50 PM.

11:38 Asia has a minor meltdown over cookies she can’t have. In between the unhappiness I quickly make a grab for some cheese. Or as she says, “CHEESE!!!” The cookies are safely hidden. The cheese is semi-happily eaten. Unhealthy bad parenting feeding choice crisis averted.

Now it’s time for both boys to eat. I wake up* both boys and change their diapers. They only stay awake to eat if their clothes are off, so their “handsome boy” outfits come off and it’s diapers only once again.

*In case you’re wondering, we feed the boys on a schedule, and if you think that waking up sleeping babies is nuts, then try dealing with always feeding them one at a time instead of together on a schedule…all of a sudden it makes a lot of sense.

Time to burp some boys.

Asia just tried to pull a wooden chair over on top of her. I caught it just in time.

12:00 Asia’s lunch time. A few minor meltdowns, nothing worth writing about.

12:45—I wash Asia’s hands after lunch (after washing off her food-encrusted body) and quickly grab the microbe-filled sponge from the sink that is going towards her mouth. One minute later, I quickly pull her hand away as she starts to squeeze Slater’s nostrils shut. I have three babies that are breathing regularly. It’s a good day so far.

12:50 Asia’s naptime. I have to go to the grocery store. Tune in tomorrow for: The Wal-Mart Wars!
