hooray! got my rag! not pregnant!
both kids woke up in the middle of the night screaming and crying to be in our room, but i had had it. exhausted and crampy, i shooed them out the door, still screaming and crying. kevin eventually went in, gave them hugs and water and they calmed down enough to go back to sleep. they showed up again and ended up passing out on our floor. yes, also, please admire the current shit-camp state of our bedroom.
whose undies are whose???
