My day started at 7:05 (really at 2:00, but we will get to that in a minute), an hour later than it should have. No surprise there, I seriously just can’t get myself out of bed any earlier than 7:00… And I walk into the bathroom, followed by my cat screaming at me because she is hungry, and my son saying mama, MAMA, M-A-M-A over and over and over again. Can’t I have a moment to myself, please! I look in the mirror to see stickers, in my hair, on my face and on my tee (AWESOME), this is what happens when you don’t want to argue with your son before bed because you are so stinking tired, you let him go ahead and wear all 1900 stickers to bed. WHAT WAS I THINKING, right I WASN’T! And I guess I should have paid a little more attention, because it's kinda
embarrassing hard to explain to someone why you have a Thomas the Tank Engine, a Race car, and whatever else kinda stickers in your hair, because you were too lazy to take a shower or even comb your hair this morning… Yes, I seriously rolled out of bed, put my hair in a clip and walked out the door, I did wash my face and brush my teeth, but that is about it. I want a break, does anyone want to give me one!?! I know, I do this quite often. The roll out of bed look works well for me, NOT!
My daughter had me up at 2:00 this morning, with her full blown screaming tantrum, jumping up and down in her bed, banging against the rail, MAMA…
Yes, I’m referring to this adorable little girl that I’m crazy about… But really little one, it is 2:00 in the morning and I don't want to sound selfish, but I want to sleep. She did this for about 45 minutes, so I finally caved and went to see what the fuss was all about, and of course when I walked in her room, she was fine. But me, I wasn’t fine! Leaning over the rail to rub her back for 20+ minutes kills my lower back, leaving me a little grumpy. Since she was fine, I ended up walking out to let her put herself back to sleep. Of course she continued to scream, jump and bang against the rail for another 30 minutes before she finally wore herself out I guess. So, by the time she was done, it was around 4:00 in the morning.
I have a feeling, that by the end of this year I will have both kids sleeping in my bed. So that means Chloe and I will be sleeping on the couch, since we won’t have room between daddy, bubba and sis.
Cheers to it being Thursday, tomorrow is Friday in case you didn’t know. That means the weekend is right around the corner for me. But I have a lot I need to do this weekend, and since I’m feeling lazy, I don’t really want to do any of it. This is what my house has looked like for the past week, it seems…
Sometimes, actually all the time lately, I get tired of picking up and organizing everything all nice and neat for child 1 and child 2, to come right behind me and drag it all out again. I have given up, you win! My bed gets made twice a week, if that. I see people giving house tours, and I’m like really! How in the world do you keep your house so nice and orderly!?! It is impossible, unless you want to be like Mommie Dearest! I have toys, shoes, dishes, clothes, etc… everywhere from the front door to the back. Sometimes my OCD kicks in and I become crazy lady, and start telling the little man all kinds of crazy things if he doesn’t start putting his toys away!
But I have realized it doesn’t do me any good, and my child just looks at me like I’m insane. We aren't dirty people, we just have a house that is truly lived in. But I would enjoy a clean house, and I miss not having one,
all the time sometimes. So, do I have any takers, for coming over and cleaning my house, while I get to be lazy!?! Yeah, I didn't think so... Just thought I would put it out there...
Goodnight sweet angels!
