dear sean, there's 20 gallons of milk in our fridge.

dear sean,
do you remember last night when i told you that yesterday was the most perfect day? and how that is always the kiss of death? welp, this is one of those times when i am not happy to be right. max was up the entire night. first she came in at 1am asking for a "beenana and milk," then 2, then 3, and finally at 4 i just told her to come into our bed where she tossed and turned until 7 when brennan came in to get up for school. why did we let her give up her binky? can we give it back? how psychologically damaging and confusing would it be to give it back? just for a month until christmas. then she could leave it for santa!!! or we could let her keep it until she's 14! whichever, just as long as she goes back to sleeping. what do you think about my idea? brennan doesn't want to sleep in the same room with her anymore. now i know why. she is so loud all night long. she is not on my happy list. i sent her downstairs with brennan once the sun came up. she yelled and screamed at him. i gave her my phone so brennan could get dressed in peace. you won't believe this, but brennan got himself all dressed AND ate his entire breakfast before he turned on the tv. i was so proud of him. i tried to go back to bed for half an hour before we had to leave for school, but max came in screaming for her milk that got lost in her bed at 1am last night. i gave up on going back to sleep after the 3rd time she came upstairs to ask me something in a 10 minute period. then when we were trying to get out the door to get brennan to school she screamed and huffed and puffed about getting her jessie boots on and not being able to get the zipper zipped up on one boot. it was annoying. i had my coat, chase, and my purse in my hands, along with barney and a half empty bottle of milk. at which point i remembered that it was friday, and even though i had gone to the store and stocked up on milk yesterday i had forgotten to cancel the winder. good news for you though because now you have your workout drinks for the week, and i guess we won't have to go to the store for the milk on thanksgiving because we have about 20 gallons in our fridge right now. i hope that you are laughing because all of a sudden i am. max just went poo for the second time this morning and is screaming for me. it is 8:51am. i am ready for bed. i love you and miss you.

i bought bologna for the first time yesterday 
for the kids and made them sandwiches with lots of mayo.
i had to make myself one too because it looked so good.
it was almost as big of a hit as christmas morning.
i kid you not.

P.S.S. it snowed yesterday, and i listened to christmas music. it was wonderful.

You are the cutest mom ever. I seriously love you. What a morning, seriously! Love that first picture of Max lining up her toys on the window ledge.
