When we had our first kid, we could hand him off. He always got tons of one-on-one attention.
Then, we had our second. Now, it was man-on-man defense. Lots of individual attention, we'd keep switching kids. We lost most of our free time.
Now, with three, it is zone defense. Usually, we make it work.
Tonight, we are both sick. The kids are getting sick and (though not tired yet) they are all pissy. I can tell when B is getting sick because, even though he doesn't complain - I start to think about selling him to gypsies. (Is there a caravan nearby?)
When we are both sick, what do we do? Bitch a lot, let the kids run amok and generally feel lousy.
Blech. We need to get back to full-on zone defense before our house falls down.
