A (not so) typical evening at the Nickles' house

10:00 pm - Lee goes to bed while Kristy stays up with Lydia for a while

12:15 am - The power goes out, just as Kristy was about to give Lydia her medication (no, Kristy had not been to bed yet). Kristy decides to try to wake up Lee rather than feel her way around in the dark holding an infant.

12:17 am - She succeeds.

12:20 am - Lee finds the flashlight.

12:25 am - Stephen wakes up

12:50 am - Everyone is in bed somewhere in the house

1:30 am - The power (and a number of lights and electrical devices) come back on - only mommy and daddy notice

4:00 am (or so) - Stephen comes in mommy and daddy's room and needs a "visit"

4:15 am (or so) - Lee gets back to bed from Stephen's room

6:50 am - Lydia announces to the household that she is ready for breakfast

I just have to say it: I love my family dearly. I'm thankful to be able to laugh at all this now - I was too sleepy to do so last night!

What a night! That reminds me of the night before we had tubes put in Micah's ears. We ended up getting about three hours of sleep! Oh well, Micah slep through the night for the first time following all that!

That's the crazy thing about having more than one kid. Even if one has a good night, the other might not. And we all know how much fun it is when there are multiple children awake! And as a hint, when the kids out number the parents and EVERYONE is awake, the parents end up lossing. :-)

Isn't it fun? :P I was up all night recently because both boys were upset and Andy had to take a test early in the morning.
