The ups and downs, the oohs and aahs of life as a single mom to two girls...

Last night Doodle fell asleep on my bed while she was watching TV. I was too tired to move her when I went to bed several hours later. At 3 a.m. Tootle came racing into my room to climb into bed and was displeased to see her sister there. I carried Doodle and her teddy bear to Tootle's bed, dropping the bear before leaving my room. As I tucked Doodle in, Tootle appeared at my side, carrying her sister's bear. At 6 a.m., Doodle, clutching her bear, came back in to my room, and hopped into an overcrowded bed. Tootle woke up and asked Doodle to get her bear for her. She did and everyone went back to sleep in an even more crowded bed for a brief time. I hope everyone manages to stay in their own beds tonight.
