Keeping it Real, Maybe a Little Too Real.

Woke up determined to get back on the right eating and exercise track.

Ate a chocolate bar two hours later. (at 8:00am)

Alayna wakes up. She wet the bed.

Joseph wakes up. He wet the bed.

Put him in the bathtub with Jacob, who is now up.

Five minutes later, they run out screaming.

Jacob reminded me that we had had Taco Soup for dinner.

Had to stick my hand into the murky water to pull the drain.

Re-fill bathtub. Alayna is crying.

Half hour later, mop up indoor swimming pool.

Breakfast. Cheerios. Alayna is crying.

Mop up spilled milk. Alayna falls asleep.

Kids go out to play. I go weed the "garden".

Come inside. Hear a commotion in the bathroom.

Kids are "cleaning their feet" in the bathtub.

Mop up the water. Start making the bed. (at 11:30am)

Here a loud 'bang' followed by a screaming Jacob.

Go and kiss his ouchy.

The smell hits my nose the same time my arm hits the leakage.

Change stinky diaper. Finish making the bed.

Find Jacob eating all the leftover Cheerios from breakfast.

(After sitting for three hours in milk, yum.)

Joseph is naked. He wants a different shirt.

One with a pocket.

At 1pm, I become a horse and give out rides.

Need knee replacements and hearing aids.

Ate another chocolate bar for lunch.

Then took my vitamins.

Hear the car honk. Run to garage.

Find Joseph buckled in the drivers seat. With the doors locked.

Give the evil mommy eye. He wisely unlocks the door.

In the back room, I hear screaming.

Find Savannah tackling Joseph while Joseph pulls Savannah's hair.

With both hands.

Break up fight. They hug and make up.

I just don't feel like cooking today.

Decide we'll have hogi sandwiches for dinner.

Luke gets a toasted turkey and cheese hogi.

Kids get peanut butter and jelly on leftover hot dog buns.

I eat a salad cause the lettuce is going bad.

Someones gotta do it.

Joseph is mad. He uses the garage as the bathroom.

Go for a walk for F.H.E.

The last hour before bed is solid screaming and crying.

Have prayer which can't be heard above crying.

Put kids to bed.

Finish weeding before it gets dark.

Time for me to go to bed, but someone is still popping off fireworks.

Ready to go hunt them down if they wake up the kids.


I just LOVE Mondays after a holiday weekend!!

Don't you?

Serene my desire to have any kids went from a 10 to a 1 just from this post!! :) Just kidding. But maybe only 2 kids six years apart is all I want to handle ;) Good luck!!

Katie Wood said...

I agree with Svedi Pie. At least I think I would need several years to ease my way into the mommy madness. Good job weeding the garden.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

LOL! Sorry guys. Didn't mean to scare you out of having kids! They're great. But man oh man, there are just some days!
I mean, everyone is entitled to a bad day. But its tricky when they're ALL tired and running on holiday junk food. =)

Love you back!
