I Had A Bad Day...

Today=Terrible Day. Starting at 2am when Cate woke up burning hot with a fever. Actually it started last night when Carter and Brady didn't go to bed until 11:30. Anyway, Cate was up from 2am-4am, fever, watching Barney, rolling around the bed. Not 30 minutes after she finally fell back to sleep, Brady woke up. Seriously, I haven't seen him in the middle of the night since he was a baby. Should have recognized the sign that it wasn't going to get better. Should have, but didn't. The next time I woke up it was 8:34am. That is 4 minutes after Bennett's school starts. Holy hell, we're late. And the rest of the day....
  • Cate was clingy all morning which meant I had to sit next to her on the couch and watch her watch Elmo...nothing got done.
  • While eating lunch, Cate puked curdled milk all over herself, the table, and my food.
  • This caused a chain reaction with Brady and I ended up on my hands and knees cleaning vomit off of every surface in the dining room.
  • Sour stomach gone and a dose of Tylenol=happy hyper Cate=no nap.
  • Brady was a complete pain in the butt all one time yelling "YOU AND YOUR RULES DRIVE ME CRAZY"
  • When Bennett got home from school, he showed us a bag of wrapped gifts he bought for everyone at Santa's Kottage...Cate immediately ripped off the wrapping paper sending Bennett into a massive meltdown
  • I stole a few minutes for myself and jumped in the shower...only to discover my shower gel was empty and I was forced to use Carter's AXE soap...nothing like smelling like teenage boy soap.
  • When I got out of the shower, I found an entire bag of pretzel sticks dumped in my living room (thank you Cate)
  • Carter came home and immediately started bickering with his brothers.
  • My heat wouldn't kick on (thankfully it made a liar out of me when Scott tried this evening)
  • Cate finally got tired and took her nap at 5...which means she'll be wired all night

It is currently 7:28pm...Cate is still sleeping, the boys are still fighting, Scott is home (yay!) and I'm going to bed...really really soon. Tomorrow is a do-over.

My rule breaker, Brady

Champion Puker....Cate

Your kids are so cute! :-) even though they were driving you crazy - I'm so sorry you had a bad day. Although I must admit it makes me feel better to think that I'm not the only one who gets irritated with her child! :-)
