What a Day!

Seriously, what a day!

I had a crappy night because I was all alone in the big, dark house. Jake is on the road, mom and dad are out of town. It's scary and vulnerable here! After restless sleep, I jumped awake at 9 AM--overslept by an hour! Luckily, I heard no screaming from the kids, they were happily just playing. I know, I love them! Then I opened the door....

Bad, rotten stench. Lukey had thrown up everywhere! There were massive chunks of pizza all over the place. So gross! Who knows how long he'd been sitting in it!! Let's not think about that. Got him out, undressed him, got Cooper. Turns out all 3 kids were poopy, Cooper with diarrhea. Then Luke pooped again right after I changed him. Having already lost an hour, I was running like a chicken with my head cut off to get everything done before church--now including cleaning up nasty throw up all over the place--and trying to make a cute Enrichment poster. Went to church and had all 3 kids in sacrament by myself. NIGHTMARE! They were actually well behaved, but we sound like a jungle. I cannot get them to understand how to whisper.

Home from church and rushing to get house cleaned up, scrub out the nasty pack and play, and dinner cooked. Luke kicks the living daylights out of Ethan. Over and over. I am irate! Want to bop him, but I don't. I'm not sure he knew what he was doing (long story).

Fix dinner for us and Allred's, Luke starts kicking Lincoln. That boy is trouble. Time out for him. A while later I tell him he can get down and then I went back to my room to straighten things up. Well, about 45 minutes later he still hasn't come back. I went out to find him...
Totally sleeping. If that's not cute! I guess he didn't hear me tell him he could get down and sat in that chair for a good hour. Poor kid. Made my day end well, though.

Wow, whenever I put Lucy in time-out, she comes out asking when she can come out, which earns her 5 more minutes. You'd think she'd learn. I'm impressed with Lukey.

TOTALLY KNOW THE FEELING EMILY! I'm so sorry. I hate days like that. You're dealing with it really well though! Doug is the ward clerk now, and I HAte Sundays now. It is most definitely not my day of rest! I have to wrangle all 3 kids alone for 9am church, and during the meeting, b/c Doug's counting people. Then, I come home all by myself, b/c doug's counting tithing - and have to change and feed everyone all at once! Then it's time to start preparing dinner! It's so frustrating. Of course, I think the whole throwing up thing and 4 poopy diapers throws a much bigger wrench into things. That STINKS - literally and figuratively :). I don't envy you - but you're tough. I'm impressed.

I wouldn't have even gone to church with the fear they would throw up or poop on the way there...so, you are better than me!

Wow!! Your amazing I think I would have chopped Sunday morning up to a bad experience and just stayed home! BTW you look awesome! Hang in there with potty training, it's hard, but totally worth it.

You have probably changed a couple of mountains of poop since becoming a mom. I don't know how you do that all day long as much as you do. And throw up? Was he sick?

I'm glad you got through it.

It's all worth it for those sweet moments, eh?!

Whew! That tired me out just reading it. I am glad you use words like poop, throw up, and diarreah. I always try to use PC for my readers, but it just doesn't convey how things really are. It is very refreshing to hear someone else's life with 3 kids. GOod job getting through the day. You tackeld things that I don't even know if I would try to attempt. You get a gold star from me!
