finally get the tub clean, add the kids and I was finally able to sit down, then the fighting starts...."Stop splashing! STOP! SPLASHING! LOLA!!", more screaming, head still pounding, is it 2 o'clock yet?, then the pooping starts, 3 year old jumps out of the tub screaming that "the baby is gonna poop in the tub!", grab the baby, try to run out but 3 year old refuses to move, had to physically move the 3 year old who then gets mad at you for "PUSHING" him, did I mention that they have shampoo/soap all over them, baby finally poops, put them back in the tub, rinse them off then get them out, still crying, still haven't sat down, get them dressed and decide that it's tv time, baby is still crying, time for a bottle, baby stops crying, I need to use the bathroom, come back to find that the baby had dumped her bottle out all over the floor and was playing in it, clean up yet another mess, then realize that the other 2 dogs are still in their kennel (oops!), take them out, come back in and realize that my terrier has a UTI and is bleeding all over my floor, clean that up, look at the clock and see that it is nap time for the baby (YAY!!!!), put the baby down, hubby comes home, I think I'm finally free and things will only get better cause I get to leave for work......yeah, not so. Work was just as bad, but that's another story for another time. WHEW!
Now.....what I'm grateful for. I'm grateful for patience, peace and quiet, hugs and kisses from my children, my cute dogs, my crazy cats and my helpful husband who is home this week, hand sanitizer, doggy diapers, my teenager's sense of humor, The Wiggles & Blue's Clues because they occupy my kids while I get things done, my friends who I can call and vent to, my health, the health of my family, my sister who gives the best advice, my brother who makes me laugh, Michael Fassbender's hotness, JustMommies for giving me a place to talk to other Moms with kids my age and for reminding me that I am not alone, Little Animation for giving me a cool place to let my kids bang on the keyboard, and most of all I'm grateful to Barefoot wine for making it all better at the end of the day. :D
