Every so often I have one of “these” days. I swear I blame it on the W_I_N_D! It starts from the time the little monsters rise and continues until bedtime!
First monster M woke up sometime around 5am with a tummy ache. Any time my kids say they have a tummy ache I tell them to go sit on the toilet and try to poop. 9 times out of 10 the fact they have not pooped in the last 24 hours is reason behind the tummy ache. So she wanders into my bathroom and I “think” I dosed back off to sleep…I am not sure because I swear it seemed like seconds later and she was yelling “Mommy! I’m done!”…pause…”Mommy! Do you hear me?!?!” With one eye open I stumble to the bathroom to wipe said child’s ass. Any other time of day she would have successfully wiped her own ass but because it’s 5am she wants me to do it. We wash hands and crawl back into bed… What seems like moments later, the morning alarm goes off. Let the day of crankies begin.
It starts with not being able to decide what we want for breakfast and then crying on the floor of the kitchen. My Keurig wasn’t brewing that coffee fast enough I tell you. I actually contemplated removing it half full and then finishing it off with vodka and Bailey’s. I refrained. She finally decided she didn’t want anything to eat and that she just wanted to lay on the couch with her blanket because she didn’t feel good. Luckily my teenagers are home on spring break…did I just refer to that as lucky?…well I guess for today it was because I was able to just hop in the truck with monster B Man in tow and off to the preschool we went.
All was fine…until I got back home. Another meltdown by monster M because she was upset that she didn’t go to school! Trying to explain to a 3 year old why they should stay home when not feeling well is like trying to saw wood with a fingernail file. By the time I got her convinced that it wasn’t the end of the world …it was time to pick monster B Man up again.
Nothing has gone right since waking up. It’s been one meltdown after another. I had to make a phone call to switch service with a company and they had me on the line for over half an hour. Toddler nation just simply does not let mommy talk on the phone for even 1 minute let alone 30!
