Today was supposed to be laundry day. But it wasn’t. Not even one load made it through the washer and dryer. It was a bad day guys. BAD. And instead of laundry, it became a Momma Sanity Day. Here goes:
First off, Alex woke me up super early. Which shouldn’t have mattered. I went to bed super early last night. But it would appear I got up on the wrong side of the bed. (It could have something to do with the fact he woke me up by jumping on me but who knows)
After Alex and I got up, I got him some milk turned the TV on and blogged. It was too early for breakfast and no one else was up so I wanted him to be quiet. It didn’t matter. 10 minutes later Nick was up too. I figured oh well. Got Nick milk, and got them some fruit and waffles for breakfast. (I had fruit) and finished writing.
At this point, this happens:
Alex and Nick are watching the school buses out the front window. Alex kicks Nick in the face. Being me, I assume it was unintentional and remind him to be careful with his feet. He doe it again. So I pick him up off the couch and tell him that we don’t kick people, it’s not nice blah blah blah. The reply ‘Please Momma, I kick Nick in the face?’ ‘No. No you may not kick Nick in the face. That hurts him.’ ‘MOOOOOOM, PLEEEEEEAAAASSSSSSEEEE kick Nick in the face’
Then Zoey wakes up. I get up and give her her morning bottle. (It’s only 7am. Hubs asked to sleep until 8) While I am feeding Zoey, Alex asks for a cookie. I say no. Because it’s early. And he hasn’t finished his breakfast. He says ‘please mommy’ I reply with another no. Then what do I get? ‘Mom, get me a cookie NOW’
My mood is only going downhill.
At 8 I wake Hubs up and I tell myself I should start the laundry. Instead I have a coffee and venting session with him. Then I check my email. Hubs pay stub is in there. Saying we owe the military almost $800. (Thankfully this was a clerical error and his pay is fine, he got it sorted out when he called his pay clerk.) I lost my mind. I cried. I yelled. He fixed it. Have I mentioned lately how much I love my husband? Because I do. I really really do.
At about 1130 we give the kids lunch and all three of them go down for naps. I was losing my mind. They were fighting, whining, crying, hitting, and being monsters. And I don’t mean monsters in the endearing way I normally do.
Alex lied down for an hour and a half. He didn’t sleep. But he was a happier person when he woke up. Nick slept for 2 hours. And Zoey slept for 3.
When everyone was awake and happy, we took the kids for a nice brisk hour long walk to get some fresh air before supper. Then we had supper (I made some amazing Honey glazed pork chops for the first time ever! They were delicious!) and went through the bedtime routine.
Now, Hubs is back to trying to fix his computer. And I am going to watch some TV. I feel like I should do the laundry. But tomorrow is another day!
On a good note though, we gave Alex peaches today. (He had a mild reaction to them the first time he had them and the Dr advised us to reintroduce them every 6 months. It’s been almost a year since the last time he had them) And NO REACTION!!! YAY for outgrowing an allergy!!!
Love, hugs and more to come later!
