Wednesdays are like a black hole in this mommyworld of mine. Meaning all activities fall into a black hole and there is nothing going on. This is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on my ever changing mood. Today it’s a bad thing. because that means I have three kids at home. with me. and nothing to do. from 11:45 am until I lay their sweet little noggins to bed at 7. That’s over 7 hours, you math whizzes. and i’ve been up since 3:56am. do that math.
Confession – this was not a winning day for me in the history of motherhood. I was not feeling particularly in the mood to entertain these little children. looking at me like, can you please entertain us little children. not my job. i gave you siblings. entertain each other.
I still tried. to keep the little people busy today. got my workout in this am. did not take a shower for fear of luke turning the house upside down while I was trying to be a normal person and take a shower after a workout. I barely got dressed.
They manage to tear the house apart anyway – living room couch, aka trampoline. really. best
piece of furniture toy we’ve bought them yet.
Then took #2 to dance class. adorable. haven’t seen cute until you’ve seen 4 year olds in tutus.
Than I heard TJ Maxx calling my name. I have a 6th sense for these things. it had been at least 48 hours since I had
wasted my morning perused the bargain aisles of tj’s. I was starting to panic that I might miss out on a stellar deal. 6th sense did me good. I rescued these snazzy designer Joes Jeans to add to my collection –
Scrambled home to get #1 off the van.
Tried to put #3 down for a nap. He’s been up since 4am, so of course he
slept like a baby for 3 hours!! rearranged all the furniture in his room and emptied his dressers. this is not a lie. he really does this.
Did some more terrorizing of the homestead.
guilty. this wasn’t clean to begin with, but they still did a pretty good job destroying it. even more.
by 4:45pm bubbly boy had way passed the 12 hour up rule , so down he went. right to bed. it was either that, or I was going to put him on the corner with a free to good home sign. surely someone would take him. and it’s not that cold out today. I read somewhere that’s an acceptable way to handle sleep issues with toddlers.
Now I’ve been up for too many hours to think about. My brain is mush and I am going to go do some serious self medicating, with this…
