Oh, one of THOSE days!

Now now, that doesn't mean it was a bad day, it was just one of THOSE days. I probably should have seen the writing on the wall when Jacob woke up extra early. Since I was still trying to get into the "get up and get going" mode, I was a little slow. Jacob was into the toilet paper before I even had my shower! Okay, before I had even changed him out of his jammies, or rather the clothes he slept in. Just before I took this picture he was actually holding the whole roll and was trying to take a bite out of it.



Then when Savannah got up she said, "mom I need to show you something". So she takes me into their room and points to Joseph's crib. It was a nice bright smelly red. Joseph a thrown up in the middle of the night! I had mixed some Crystal Light into the juice to make it last longer and, as you know, it has quite the dye in it. So, all that Crystal Light Joseph drank was now splattered all over the wall, the crib bars, and of course, his sheets. The poor little tooth fairy bear didn't stand a chance. I don't know if he will ever be allowed back into Toothland!



Oh wait, this is the best part. A little later I went grocery shopping. Since the kids like to unload the cart at check out we are a bit slow. Anyway, the guy ringing us up was almost done when I went into my wallet to get my debit card. All of a sudden I remembered my cards were on my desk at home because Savannah had pulled them out of my wallet earlier. I felt so dumb! I had no other way of paying so I asked if it would be okay if I ran home to grab my card. Luckily we live just across the street from the store. So, I ran the kids to the car, threw them in, raced home, grabbed my card, raced back to the store, threw the kids back into a cart and wheeled back into the store to pick up my giant cart full of groceries. Wow, what a workout! Then I was making a salad for a work BBQ we went to tonight when I realized I was missing one very important ingredient. As you can imagine I had no intention of going back to the store so I had to improvise. But it turned out just fine.
Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Oh, good news, I was able to wash the tooth fairy bear back to its old self, yea!
