One of Those Days

I don't know if I should laugh or cry today - I think I did both!! The day started out great! Both of my girls slept in to 7:40 AM!!! For our family, this is sleeping in and I'm sure the time change helped.

I was getting the girls breakfast and I noticed a "smell" coming from my youngest daughter, "Livie, did we have an accident?" This was after an entire week of no accidents. So off to the bathroom and a quick bath.

Then, it was time to drop off Kelsey at preschool and Mommy & Livie went to Meijers. This was actually a successful trip. I dread going to Meijers, but all was well.

After the preschool pickups and lunch was started Livie was crying in her room (did I mention she was in a timeout?)Well, I ran(okay I walked) up to her room to see what the problem was - yep she was wet - another clean up and carpet clean up as well.

Then lunch..... followed by another accident with the big "D" - which meant two loads of laundry, mega carpet cleaning, bathroom cleaning, wall cleaning (don't ask) and another bath!! I'm leaving a number of details out and pictures.

It was definitly one of those days....

To quote you, "poop happens". :) However, poop on the wall is another story. Two words for that G -ROSS.

This is Kim's husband contributing to the blog. I wanted to let you all know how much I appeciate my beautiful wife as a mom. Beijng a mom is probably the most underappreciated full-time job out there, and Kim does an incredible job with my two munchkins exhibiting much love, patience, kindness and grace. She failed to mention how she continued to play with the girls in the midst of cleaning, laundry, dishes and carpet cleaning. Yes, "poop happens" to us all, but who can a mom vent on. The kids? My wife wouldn't and I am so thankful for that. I have a feeling not many dads are reading my wife's blogs, but if there are any out there, I suggest you figure out a way to appreciate the mom in your home. Thank you, honey, for all you do. I'm sorry I don't appreciate what you do enough.

So when do you want a Beaner's coffee? Should I pick you up one tomorrow? UGH!

Kim, I would love to take a class from you on patience. That is a hot commodity these days. And...I know I only have moments like these that you've mentioned coming my way!!
