One of those days

Ever have one of those days when your cashier at the grocery store puts each of your items in individual bags, and ties each one in a knot? Meanwhile all three of your children are whining and crying because they've been forced to be squeezed in a cart for the past 45 minutes, and they woke up entirely too early this morning.

And then they get out of the cart, and you try to yell without yelling at them to get back here, right now. The 4 year old listens, the 2 year old walks into the bathroom. You swipe your card as fast as you can and run to the bathroom, only to find your 2 year old about to walk out of the bathroom - completely naked??

Then you find her clothes on the bathroom floor, get angry looks from evil people who have no sympathy for crazy young mommas, get her dressed and get the heck out of there as fast as you can. Ever have a day like that?

Then when you get home, you have to lug in three children plus $200 worth of groceries? And then put it all away while the 6 month old cries and the preschoolers fight? And then when it's finally quiet hearing...

"Mom... uhm... I found these scissors, and I could have cut my hair but... I didn't...."

While you see handfuls of hair on the floor?

Oh and it's not even noon yet.

Can I go back to bed now?

  1. Oh man. It's days like that when I want to get a good book, lots of chocolate, even more diet coke, and plop the kids in front of the tv so I can enjoy it.

  3. Oh YES I can relate! When mine were similar ages, Mimi found a loose screw from kitchen chair and started pounding it into the table until I realized that sound was questionable, and found about 60 big holes in the table! Meanwhile Maxwell had spun the spinny cabinet and found, whatelse?, the CURRY!!!, opened it and ran around the house shaking curry EVERYWHERE. My house smelled like Bangladesh for at least a week, no amount of cleaning seemed to mask it. It just had to air out. At least you got a great post out of it, right? right?
