FINALLY!!! Why is it the kids have to act like MONSTERS when I am home with them and the minute Hubby walks in the door they put their angel wings on and I look like the bad guy! Why is that???? Then he says I'm just being too hard on them. What the f***? I wish our video camera worked. I'd set it up so the kids didn't know and just let it run. At least he'd hear what they had to say and how they treat me when he isn't around.

This morning..JP had a ROUGH time. I knew it was coming. He refused to go to sleep last night. I don't know what his problem was. He wanted a Hug from Hubby but Hubby wasn't home. He cried and cried and cried. This morning it took him 35 minutes to go potty. That's all he could get done. He didn't get himself dressed, didn't even get his teeth brushed. It's just like he was moving in snail speed. Why did I let it get me upset? I knew last night this is what was going to happen.

Then Emilee asked for a drink of water. I had to go to the bathroom so told her I would get her one as soon as I was done (I know TMI). While I was in the bathroom - I heard the fridge door open and the sound of things falling and hitting the floor. Instead of waiting for me (and I was int here all of 2 minutes tops) so tried to get her water bottle outta the fridge by herself. She knocked the bottle of OJ off the top shelf and a doz eggs off the shelf. Needless to say, the cover came off the oj and the eggs broke. I was not a happy camper. Oh and it's now 7:55am and I have to be to work by 8:30am and we have 23 miles to drive.

Then she wanted to know why I was yelling at them. I know I shouldn't have yelled but I was MAD!!! Was I asking too much for her to wait 2 minutes for me to get her a drink of water? Is it wrong of me to expect an almost 5 year old (he'll be 5 on the 22nd) to dress himself like he does every other morning? It's not like she was coughing or gagging or anything. The way it turned out she didn't get a drink of water at all. I cleaned up the mess as good as I could and now I will have to scrub scrub scrub the floor tonight.

We were supposed to have our yearly home visit by sw tonight too so that didn't make me any happier. Luckily when I got to work sw called to say that she wasn't feeling good and to reschedule our visit.

Welcome to Monday! Here's a toast to a better week ahead!
