It's nap time.
Four children are supposed to be in bed.
Two children are in bed.
One cried for almost an hour before falling to sleep.
One paged through a book for almost an hour before falling to sleep.
As I was sitting down for a spare moment to write a few thank you notes, one of my children came in telling me that they had a poopy diaper. Seconds later, another child came in telling me that they, too, had a poopy diaper.
Once I changed the diapers and put them back to bed, moments later they returned.
One child was holding what remained of a new poopy diaper, sans poop, and the other child was holding what remained of an 80 pack of diaper wipes, sans diaper wipes.
When I went to investigate I found poop squashed all over the floor and diaper wipes scattered all through the house.
How did I not hear them??
My thank you notes will have to wait.
For now, I am going to show my children how to eat ice cream directly out of the carton.
