when's Friday?

Today my most adorable children have been at each others throats constantly. Arguing. Screaming. Roaring. Laughing. It's been one rollercoaster after another. One minute they're giving each other hugs and then next yelling, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO I don't WAAAANTTTT TOOOOO" (my lovely daughter) and "I DON'T WANT HER TO FOLLOW MEEEEE!!! LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!" (my handsome son). These are the days I say no more mini people allowed. Unless they are someone else's and I can give them back. I just sit here and watch it all. All my energy is spent. I let them scream and see what happens. I interveen only when bodily harm is becoming evident.

Alina found the little pepper grinder. Sam found pepper in his water. I ran out of diapers today. Alina's wearing a swimmy diaper with rubber underware training pants so she doesn't leak everywhere. The joys of having one vehicle and no diapers.

Oh....happy place..... How I love being there.

Sounds pretty scary to me. Good thing you're there at least to referee.

That evil pepper-in-water-girl. I can't even believe it.

I can't imagine how exhausted you get. I think of you being exhausted while you think of me here bored out of my mind and we would both trade. For about five minutes.

Yikers! So did you comment at Anne's place about wanting to do nothing other than what you're donig (at home being a mom) before or after this post? ;-)

At least I'm free of my little monkeys at 3:00. But then, I also don't get the kisses and the I love you mamas.

Hang in there, mama! :)

Hillary said...

anne said...

We all have days when we would trade with ANYONE just to do something different!! :) Moms just get extra trials sometimes...

I totally understand those days. They hurt. A LOT.

Hang in there.

"no more mini people allowed" - you should put up a sign when it gets to that point again.

Well, let me just say that I appreciate you as a mother and I appreciate your time spent at home loving on your kids, even when they drive you crazy. You're probably earning jewels like crazy in your crown right now. :)
