Baking and couch surfing

So today has been odd... it all started at 3:30 a.m. when Kyle came up and cuddled with me <3. He got both boys asleep in their pack n play and thought he would come and spend some time with me. 6:30 a.m. on the nose Aiden was screaming his head off. So I went down (since it was truly my shift any ways) and he was in actual tears. I picked him up tried to console him.. but no. Mom was not good enough. So I went to grab his bottle to warm it, but I had to lay him in his swing since I need more than one hand to make the bottle since it had meds and such (God if you ever think of re-making humans... please add an extra set of arms. Thanks.). So I warmed his bottle and made his meds, then he ate. He burped. Then he started screaming again. So we laid down on the couch and hung out for a bit, he finally stopped and we went to sleep. 7:30a.m. comes around and Adam Ant wakes up.

Adam-"Morning Mom"
Me- "Morning Adam. Don't forget to eat breakfast, pack your bag for Nonnies, brush your teeth and take your vitamin."
Adam- "Uhhhh Ok."
A few minutes later....
Adam- "Mom, what is there for breakfast?"
Me- "Their is cereal and oatmeal in there."
Adam- "But mom I don't want either of those, can't I have toast?"
Me- "Sure let me pry Aiden off my chest (he was really sweaty) and I will come make it." Adam- "But how long is it going to take you? Doesn't it take a while to make bread?"
Me- "Adam we have bread in here."
Adam- "Oh"

My goodness what am I going to do with 3 boys? Help!

At 8:33 a.m. (Adam's bus comes around 8:40-8:45.)

Adam- "Bye mom I love you.
Me- "Adam where is your bag for Nonnies?"
Adam- "What bag?"
Me- "The bag I told you to pack about an hour ago, did you brush your teeth?"
Adam- "Ugh no, you didn't tell me to. Hold on."
Me- (Deep breaths) "Adam go brush your teeth take your vitamin and I will pack your bag since you guys have to drop by here after school to grab it."

A few minutes later...

Adam- "Bye mom"
Me- "Did you take your vitamin?"
Adam- "MOM, you didn't tell me to."
Me- "Adam stop and listen to me please"

Every time he talked to me today he was very antsy (Kinda mean but that is why we call him Adam Ant, he is always antsy), but that last time he was moving back in forth like I do when I hold one of the boys, you know that mom sway?

Me-"Go take your vitamin, you are going to be late for your bus."
Adam-"OK, uuuggghhhh."
Adam- "(chew chew) Bye mom."

I grab him by his arm and pull him over to me.

Me- (almost in tears) "I love you Adam, have a great day at school and I will see you when you come by to get your bag. I love you."

Wiping off the kiss he walked out the door and got on the bus. I truly think he has ADD or ADHD. That was the one thing I forgot to talk to his doctor about a week and a half ago when we went. It breaks my heart knowing that this is why he forgets things, this is why he is starting to fall behind in school. This is part of my stress. Kyle had told him last night at dinner to stand still while Kyle talked to him, and it looked like it was about to kill him to stand there without moving. God love him. He needs help, but not meds... I refuse.

So today has been pretty productive... I did 5 loads of laundry, did the dishes... twice, made bottles, made more formula, mopped, and made muffins. Shut up I know! I made muffins! Granted they were a mix in the box.. but whatev.
Before :
(Yes I ate one right after it came out of the oven, what kind of woman do you think I am?)


(I am a hungry woman)

Actually the real reason is, it has just been one of those days. I have noticed with my stress I eat more. I am stressed. I mean at 4 p.m. when Aiden woke up to eat, I changed his diaper like i always do before I feed him... and there was a brown streak. Almost like he was trying to poop. WHAT? For those of you who don't know, Aiden has an ostomy and he has a bagged hooked up to it that he poos in. So how can it be that he as a brown streak in his diaper? So I called the doctors office, and all the doctors were in patient rooms. So I left a message with the nurse and she said a doctor would call me. Dr. Peltier is not in today, so I knew it would have to be a doctor on call. Well the doctor on call called me and was stumped. She said lets wait for his next bottle, see if he takes it, and then we will go from there. He took his next bottle (all 4 oz of it!) with no problems. So when she called back I told her that he seemed fine. So she said for me to call his surgeon tomorrow morning and find out from him. As long as he is not running a fever, vomiting, lethargic, etc. she said he would be fine. So he is now asleep and he seems fine. So we will call the surgeon early since I have to be down there tomorrow with him anyways because of his eye appointment.

This is where the couch surfing comes in... Nate when you lay him backwards in his Boppy... he snuggles all the way down into the Boppy.. this time he just happened to almost slip off the couch.. yes I was right there and he wouldn't off fallen.
