Can I take a vacation day? From my kids?
Today isn't a good day so far. And it's only just past noon.
To begin, I didn't get up at the (ass) crack of dawn to run. That puts a cloud over my head to begin with, knowing I have to somehow squeeze a workout in at home with the 3 boyz.
Eldest got on the bus at 7:45.
At 8:28, Middle, Baby and I were in the car. Headed to Sis's to drop off Baby. Got Middle to preschool at 8:50.
Headed down the hall to Eldest's classroom to help at "Center Time."
Hubby came in to the classroom at 10 so we could have our parent-teacher conference. (It went totally fine.)
Headed out at 10:11 to pick up Baby from Sis's.
Drove to Super Wal-Mart. Baby screamed because he didn't want to ride in the cart and I had to physically SHOVE him down so I could buckle him in. Fun times. And then (of course!), Wal-Mart had NO portobello mushrooms. So I bought diapers, bubble bath....and other crap that ended up being $56.
Drove home to the Trenches to meet Eldest as he got off the bus at 11:20.
Eldest immediately threw a crying tantrum because he was hungry and didn't want to get in the car. And he wanted McD's for lunch. To which the answer was no.
Got Eldest and Baby in the car, to drive BACK to school to pick up Middle at 11:30.
Middle immediately threw a crying tantrum because he was hungry and didn't want to get in the car. And he wanted McD's for lunch. To which the answer was no.
Drove home to the Trenches.
Upon entry, all 3 boyz were talking/whining/crying/screaming. At once. Mommy reaches her breaking point. Screams to all 3 to SHUT UP (not proud of this fact) and sends each one up to their bedrooms.
Then Mommy cries. Feeling guilty because I'm only home a few more weeks with them. And I don't want it to be like this.
