Ok, on Monday it was Dave's birthday and it started out just fine, I even got a post in, but by noon it was taking a turn for the worse. Nap times have not been going well and this day was no exception. I had just gotten Ethan to sleep when Kaitlyn wanders in and yells, "mamma, mamma, up, up!" Ethan starts to scream and I have two fussy tots on my hands.
I try nursing both at the same time and Kaitlyn starts to drift off so I take a semi-awake Ethan and go to leave the room, he starts to scream and they are both up again.
It has now been two hours since the whole ordeal started and I break down. I don't want to freak out at the kids and I don't know what else to do so we jump in the truck.
Driving should help.
And it did! I found my sanity in two slurpees, (a slurp-achinno and a pina colada), calming classical tunes and a leisurely drive with two sleeping babes. They were so beautiful, both slumped over in their car seats snoring softly, so peaceful!
We spent a few hours exploring the south end of the city and then headed home. Getting chores done didn't happen, I tried but to no avail. For some reason both kids were being needy and pulling on me and, well we just didn't get a thing done.
I never got Dave a card and never made supper, I didn't even get myself prettied up. Poor Dave, after a long hard day at work had to come home to frumpy's...on his birthday....and eat left overs! To top it off we got in a petty fight over something silly since we were both so beat and it was midnight and the kids were still up!Ugh what a day!!
Yesterday was better, naps happened and when they do i fly around prep supper and clean. I was so productive I even put a table cloth on the table and got out fancy glasses, did laundry, dishes and read a book.
When the kids were up we baked some dessert and were ready for when daddy came home, oh how I wish every day would go so smoothly.
I have more to post but I will try to do it tonight.....the subject of that post has yet to be sorted out completely.
