Note to Self:

Do not plan to do ANYthing between the hours of 7 and 11 pm. Unless those plans are to endlessly pace the floor, rock, pat, shush, sing, sway, change positions, nurse, practice 'Serenity Now' and becoming zen-inevitably giving in to the roar of white noise that is incessant screaming. No reading, no watching tv (if you want to follow it whatsoever), no cleaning, no talking, nothing productive and nothing enjoyable. After 11 pm. you may ready yourself for bed as quickly as possible, hope Fiona will sleep in the nursery and dive into bed, hoping for a possible 2 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
We're 1 hour in for tonight. 2-3 more to go.

i marvel at your ability to write about this... i think i would be so frayed i wouldn't be able to string together coherent thoughts!

This sounds so hellish to me that it's even hard to read about. I feel for you and really hope things will change soon.

Oh man. This is so very uncool.

I have experienced this with my babies, but only for short bursts, nothing long term. Miserable.

I'm so impressed with your perspective and your ability to keep your sense of humor. Serenity now!

You could wear ear plugs and put the closed caption on the TV. LOL.

BTW, all you have to do is buy the DVD and all your problems will be solved!

What was up with that?!
