Sunday went great - it was the kind of day that made me think I could have a dozen kids if every day was like that. But it's only the second day in my two and half years of parenting that I've said that, so I'm pretty sure that falls under the "once in a blue moon" category.
Monday went fairly well- fun playdate with twin buddies, but no nap, so everything went downhill around 5pm. And when I say downhill, I mean, like this:
I'll spare you the details, but they got a pretty decent reminder to never touch the blinds again, and I listened to their howling feeling like worst mom in the world. However, need I remind you we don't actually own this house or these blinds? (Because never in a million years would I have chosen such beautiful and lovely window treatments for my sons' room.) Need I remind you that I have so many of these wooden blinds in the house I can't even tell you how many there are?.....(Minutes later)......11. I don't know what they cost, but I know they are not cheap. Someday I'll learn because someday I'll have to replace one...or more.
I took that photo this morning in order to show you how NOT together I have it. Then I took these just in case you were still doubting:
If you know me, you know I HATE cleaning bathrooms. I LOVE my new house, but having as many bathrooms as I do is...uh...well...a challenge. So let's just say it's a good thing I have guests as often as I do so that the bathrooms get a swipe every once in awhile. This one's in need today. I just can't get those kids to clean up their bathroom.
It's a good thing I have it all together (snort, snort!)!
