The title says it all. Just one of those days. Many of my friends may remember this old Monica song:
Just one of them days
That a girl goes through
When I’m angry inside
Don’t want to take it out on you
Just one of them days
Don’t take it personal
The girls have just been overly whiny and demanding lately. We are not sure what is going on or if this a taste of what three girls with PMS will look like in our future. Don’t get it wrong, the picture above is in no way promoting child labor. But, after Avery broke an entire bottle of OPI RED nail polish on our master bathroom floor I knew the day was not off to a good start. I typically don’t freak out over things like this. I have way too much patience for that and know things just happen. I was about to implode and they were sort of laughing which even made it worse. Grab a toothbrush girls and get scrubbing! Of course, this lasted maybe five minutes and it took me more than an hour to turn my bathroom floor back into somewhat normal when it was a crime scene!
I tried everything! Nail polish remover to baking soda to Clorox to pumice stones to scrub it out! Just me and a toothbrush and nail polish remover for more than an hour.
Secondly, you know this wonderful idea that I had to get a puppy? Well, she I like a fourth child right now. The adorable-ness of these dogs is what makes it worth it, but seriously, come on!!!
The girls like to wake up at night and so does the puppy. She has an excuse. She is a puppy. They are almost five!!!! I find myself resorting to old parenting ways of just putting Miss Murphy in bed with us so I can sleep a few hours. Then I remember that does not help in the future. The part that does not make me happy is the poop. “MOOOOOOMMMM Murphy pooped in Emily’s room AGAIN.” If you are a Mom, poop is not really a big deal. At least it never was to me and I had lots of poop going on in this house. But, I will say throw up on all accords I absolutely despise.
WARNING!!! This photo is not for the weak stomached. Yep, that is MASSIVE throw up from our eight year old Boxer, who we took to the pet ER last week. I literally thought she was dying. She does have some issues to investigate, but put it on the list right?
Things can always be worse and in this house they have been in the past! But this day just really had me spinning and my blood pressure out the roof.
So, if any parents out there have tips on the following please help a sister out!
- puppy training
- attitude adjustments – This could actual be good for me and my hubby as well as the kids 🙂
- why dogs eat EVERYTHING!
- why kids don’t want to eat certain things!
- why we still can’t get a full night sleep in five years?
- why somehow I still find all of this somewhat humorous
- why I still have not checked myself into some type of retreat for crazy people
