Am I a Horrible Mother?

So we stayed out in Herriman last night. I had to get my van cleaned out so the insurance company can take it away, plus I had to pick up the title to the new used van I am getting.

As we know the twins have not been the best at getting to bed, and the Herriman place is not moved into yet. (Johnathan just is in the processing of moving into a three bedroom apartment so that he can host our family over there in comfort) We have the mattresses in the living room, and have a big sleep over when we go out there. Sabrina would not for the life of me go to sleep. Mind you I wake up at five o'clock or so and I am tired by 8 p.m., 9 p.m. I am exhausted!

10:30 p.m. Miss Sabrina was still fighting Mr. Sandman! We told her if she didn't go to sleep we were going to make her go in the closet. This is a big closet mind you, has a light in it, carpet....etc, plus is the only place that doesn't have stuff for her to get into! I know it sounds evil....

She still wouldn't go to sleep....so as all of you know I follow through with what I say. One thing after having so many kids you think I would learn to watch what I say! Off we went......she was placed in the closet for a minute or two. After telling her she could come out if she went right to sleep, she was let out. She rushed onto the couch and was asleep in seconds. I on the other hand was awake for a couple hours making sure she really was asleep.

Sabrina has been known to fake sleep. She can do this for a period of time, she is really good at it. A cute habit, but annoying when you think she's really asleep, only to find 2 lbs of bacon in the sink.......

When Sabrina slept over at our house (well Olivia did, too) I sat on the couch with her, and everytime she went to get up, I said "Lay down," and I think she got very tired of that and off to sleep she went...it took quite awhile, but I can be very persistent.
