Motherhood defined

Ya pretty much I don't have much to say today as I'm running on very little sleep. I'm staying with my mom this week (ya hoo!) and so last night I stayed up talking with my mom for a while, we went to bed at 10:30. I know you all are thinking what's the big deal that's not very late. Well I read my book for about an hour and then went to bed. I was in the same room as Kaden (2) who at 2am woke up screaming. I sat straight up in bed in a panic wondering what that horrible sound I was hearing was and why was my sleep being interrupted (isn't that called motherhood?). When I realized what it was I got him out of his bed and let him lay between me and Spencer (7) who was also sleeping in the same room. He would not go back to sleep and insisted on getting up to get a drink of water. So I got him a drink of water and then got him back to sleep. Only to have him kick his foot over and land smack in the middle of my face 3 times during the night. He was sleeping at the head of the bed right where my pillow should have been but you know it's kinda like that saying let a sleeping dog lie. I think it goes the same for toddlers, let a sleeping toddler lie! So I scrunched up on the bottom of the bed and tried to catch some Zs. At 6:45 Tyce burst into the room to tell me good morning. I quickly jumped out of bed and shushed him as we went out the door. So I didn't get to sleep in after that and then I took my 3 boys and their 2 cousins swimming this afternoon and I'm beat! I'm thinking I'll sleep in Tyce's room tonight and try to get more sleep, but anyway there is the reason that I'm not thinking so well so I don't have a great post. OH wait that and the night before I stayed up until 2am cleaning my house, washing laundry, and packing in order to be ready to leave for my mom's house first thing this morning.
