Terrible Case of the Terrible 2′s

The title about sums up our week.

This has easily been the most exhausting week of having two children. I think we have averaged roughly 3-4 hours of sleep each night because Drew has been up screaming (like…can’t get him to stop screaming for hours and hours and hours) and Jake has been acting like…well, a 2 year old.
Por ejemplo:
We finally got Drew to sleep around 10pm last night. He woke up again screaming at 2am and cried and cried until 4:30 when he finally went back to sleep. Then I hear, “MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA!” over the monitor. Based on the intensity of his screaming, I assumed Jake was being attacked by rabid dogs and ran to his room. He simply said, “All done.”
As in “All done with sleep, Mommy.”
At that point, I gave him the look of an estranged crazy woman and put him back in bed.
He even got in trouble at school today and I had to stay and talk to the teachers about it. Break my heart! He was sent to time out and then got in trouble because he talked back to them and threw a tantrum on the floor instead of standing in time out.
As his teacher said, “I think he finally came out of his quiet shell today!”
I would say I am looking forward to 3, but word on the street is that it’s worse.
Bless our hearts!!! :)

  1. Oh goodness. What is wrong with Drew? Poor baby. That made me laugh about Jake being all done with sleep but I’m sure it wasn’t funny at the time. I hope things get better!
