Help me…

Crying babies.

Loud, crying babies.

No nap.

Angry, loud, crying babies.

*Cough, Cough, Cough*

Sick, angry, loud, crying babies.

Did I mention no nap?

Tired, sick, angry, loud, crying babies.

help me.


  1. Oh man, I wish I could help. Baby Tylenol??? Wine. Oh.. maybe not. Good luck.. Oh yesh, the t-shit got here. It is so cute. Big though – I think Nata is a little small. She is just in 18 month clothes. Soon though. When it fits her, I will send you a picture.

  2. Uh… dude… I wish I could help but… all I can do is give you a quote:

    “My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.”

  3. I had that this morning, too! Now they are both asleep (praise God!), but it was touch-and-go there for a while. Bring on the baby Tylenol, and take them for a car ride if it’ll get them to sleep. Go find a Starbucks with a drive-thru. They’ll fall asleep, and you can get your own form of medication. :)

  4. Just think of it as blogging material. How about giving them some of that super heavy adult strength cough drops for a nice five hour nap? I have actually talked to people who drug their kids on airplanes (fucking scary thought to me)so why ot do it at home too?

    AD, out of NYC before finally going home

  5. Oh my lord, twins and you still find time to write? During the DAY? You put the rest of us to shame, ya bastard.

    Thanks for coming by my site (and sympathizing with my musical lameness) – and extra thanks for showing the way back to yours. I dig it. And I dig the blogfathers very muchly. If you ever need a y chromosome-free guest columnist, you know where to find me.

  6. i find the baby tylenol for colds and coughs have an extra drowsiness ingredient…Not that i like to drug my son…But it does help him sleep when he is sick. Altho, when he doesnt go to sleep, he acts like he’s a lethargic drunk (which is cute, but kinda pathetic and makes me feel so bad that i cant do anything for him) My son tonight has come down with a fever of almost 102. I gave him regular tylenol and he is sleeping now, i hope nothing more comes from this random fever. Good luck with the little ones. SOrry i cant help you out…we have all been there (altho not with two…) Thoughts are with you!

  7. when our twins were babies and we had days like you’re describing, we usually put them out on the lawn. do you have a lawn? now that our twins are 3 1/2 and putting them on the lawn would mean they’d be twirling in the middle of the street, we go out and sit on the lawn when we need a time out.

    but oh, the no nap. you got me right *here* with that part.

    hope tomorrow is better.

  8. Aww! But this is like a little poem! So sweet!

    The little poem is sweet, not the angry babies. They are probably not so sweet, yes?

  12. What I do is the Starbuck’s car ride. Both babies (and I have 8 month twins) in car seats, soothing music, and a ride to the driveup. Usually they’re asleep by the time I go for a little ride with my coffee.

    But I haven’t tried this at night. Or with sick babies. Thank god, so far, we haven’t gotten that particular joy.

    But my babies don’t sleep through the night right now cause of teething. It sucks!! They do whenever there’s no teething but they seem to be super teethers– both have gotten two at a time.

    But we’re getting there.
