Just had a few of those moments today. I mean, there is always a few every day, but some days affect me more than others. Today I yelled. A lot.
Summer is so pokey in the morning. It drives me crazy. She gets distracted easily. We get into the car, she's finally buckled(2 carseats and a booster is not conducive to easy buckling) and she forgets to brush her teeth. I still get her to school on time(today, that is) and I get home with the littles and its just one annoyance after another. Grady sits on Teagen. Yes he's younger, but he's bigger. Teagen is refusing to got to the bathroom alone. Come on. It was just irritating to me. She's made because she thinks I dressed her in Summer's clothes. They are not, but she believes that they look like something Summer would wear. What? I buy both of their clothes, and accept NO input from them. So all their clothes look the same because its my taste!
OK, lunch. Chicken Nuggets. We all leave the room for a second(milk fill-ups) and Chase has stolen a plate of nuggets. For the most part, our dogs are very trustworthy with food that is on tables. But in her old age(shes 10) Chase has kinda rewritten the rules and helps herself to whatever she wants if no on is watching. So I wasn't very nice to her. She's spending some time outside today.
The kicker of my day so far(its not even 2pm) is I just left the room for 2 minutes(bathroom) and come back in to find Teagen and Grady having a stompfest on what was a sleeve of ritz crackers. Cracker crumbs everywhere. I have never seen such a mess. Too bad I sent the dogs out!(that's what I get for being such a meanie) I will never get rid of all the crumbs. It was on the hardwood floors, but of course we don't have laminate, or even newer wood floors. Nope, these are the 100 year old cracked and dented floors. With lots of spaces for the crumbs to hide. I'm getting the dogs to lick it up(I'll mop later)...
So writing it all down has put it in perspective for me. I count myself pretty lucky that this is a bad day at my house. I really have it so good. Its fun to actually have it all written in one place. I love blogging. I love my kids. I love my husband, and yes I love my dogs too.
I leave you with a pic of "The Tank" This is from this past summer, but its football season now and he loves to watch it. Calls out"game!game!" when its on TV. I can't wait until he can play.
