The very very worst thing about being a stay at home mom?
Sick days when your husband is out of town.
Yesterday and today have not been great.
Though, can I say how proud I am of my little girl? She has been taking full care of Collin while I lay on the couch and try not to move.
Except for this play doh moment when she was distracted and I had to intervene.
And all the times I had to move to offer substance and clean diapers, give bathes and wipe noses, and all the essential mom duties that don't go away even when you feel terrible.
But only the essentials are getting done.
The house has NEVER been this messy.
There is not one toy that has not been pulled out.
I haven't opened Lydia bedroom door today. I'm afraid.
Collin hurt his hand on a toy and I actually heard him cry "Woe Is ME!"
That was kind of awesome. Not him getting hurt of course. Just him being darling.
(My kids really are darling.)
The kids didn't like the chicken, veggies and rice I reheated from the other night.
Collin actually threw zucchini at Lydia.
(Okay, maybe not all that darling.)
Too tired to put up a fight.
They had the "treat" cereal for lunch.
The treat cereal spilled all over the floor.
It's still there and I'm not cleaning it up anytime soon.
I screamed at my doctor on the phone. There may have been some light swearing.
That was inappropriate. I feel bad about that. Lightly.
(Two DAYS before I can have an antibiotic!!! Are you freaking insane? Have you ever had a UTI???)
How's your day?
