So this morning my 5 year old woke up at 6am. She came running in my room saying she was scared. I was dead asleep and jumped up immediately. I got her a drink and turned on the tv and made her a little bed on the couch, expecting her to go back to sleep. I go lay back down and 5 minutes later she comes in screaming that tegan (her 4 year old brother) was up and wouldn't go back upstairs. (apparently she is the only one allowed to be awake early and on the couch lol). I made him a bed on the other couch and laid back down. 10 minutes later I hear them moving around and playing and realize they are not going to sleep and they woke up my 18 month old. And she was not happy. So we all get up. Probably doesn't sound horrible, but I'm pregnant and moody and irritable and just wanted to sleep until the sun was up. Lol. Anyways, fast forward a little. My 7 year old is WILD! He kept running and jumping on furniture. Nothing I said or did made him stop. I had to call dh and try to get him to talk to him and calm hom down. Didn't work. They're playing upstairs and being relatively quiet so I was cleaning up the downstairs. After a few minutes I hear a loud thump. I didn't hear anyone crying and thought they dropped a toy. Nope, then I hear the scream and my 7 year old comes running downstairs screaming that he's bleeding. I look and his head is cut and bleeding. I ask what happened and he said he was jumping on the bed and fell off and hit his head on the window sill. There is blood running around his neck and down his chest. I panic and call dh (he had my car caise his had a flat tire) and call my mom and they both say we need to take him in. Dh stayed at work cause my parents volunteered to take him so I could stay home with my other 3 kids. They cleaned it up and he has 2 staples in the back of his head. While he's gone to the ER I talk to my other 2 (the youngest is only 18 months) and explain to them what happened to braylan and that's why we can't jump on the bed or run in the house or jump on furniture. And they said they won't do it anymore. Ok, so I go to the basement and put some clothes in the dryer. I hear tegan scream and kylee start yelling 'mom! Tegans bleeding!'. I panic and run up the steps and find him with blood gushing out his nose and down his belly. He was running around and tripped and hit his nose. Half a roll of toilet paper later, he was fine. Braylan gets home and is still a wild man. Now they're supposed to be in bed and I can hear them laughing. They've already each been up twice since we put them in bed at 9 to pee or get a drink or they forgot to tell me something. I'm so ready for bed. Dh and my 18 month old have been asleep on the couch for about 30 minutes and i still need to clean up the mess from supper. Ugh. I need a break! Sorry for the long random post. I just needed to vent. Let's hope tomorrow is a little better. At least without bleeding or staples!

Haha. Most says are slightly chaotic at best, but today was almost unbearable! I love my big family and wouldn't trade them for anything, but today was almost a deal breaker! Lol. I can usually deal better, but I am a hormonal mess lately!
