I woke up to a frantic H, hitting me saying, “ Sugar puked your new carpet, Sugar puked on your new carpet.”
I jumped up and ran downstairs. On my way, sprinting, to the laundry room for cleaner before the stain set, I slipped in pee! Nearly busting my butt I screamed which caused a chain reaction from the girls.
In the laundry room I stripped out of my pants since the hem was soaked with urine and luckily there was another pair, non-pregnancy, sitting there so I squeezed into them.
I cleaned everything up, including the additional one by the back door and retreated to my bed to try to start this morning over.
Before my eyes could close I had to break up 3 fights, finally leading to a time out. I told the girls not to come out of their room until I told them.
Between the 10 minutes of shut eye I did manage to get, H was nicely in her room following her orders while I heard a war of balloon hitting coming from L’s. Someone has aggression issues.
I finally let them out of their rooms and tried once again to get a few more seconds of sleep.
This morning was shot when I felt a tapping on my shoulder and H was showing off her beautifully wet slicked back hair.
Two seconds later L came in with a soaking wet head as well.
There was nothing to do at this point. I was all screamed out from yesterday and we are heading to Virginia in a few hours so I needed to change my attitude fast before I was trapped in a car with them for 3 hours.
The only thing I said was, “did you clean up the water that got on the floor?” Because you know there has to be a ton of water somewhere.
H, with the sweetest smile, said, “No, mommy, we cleaned up the bench and the floor. They both go really wet especially when L stuck her whole head in the sink and flipped it back. It was really funny.”
Dear ladies and gentlemen, this all happened before 8:45, ridiculous. I am not a morning person and I thought my kids weren’t either. I’m off to make a pot of coffee and pray this day turns around.
How did your morning start?
L: when’s this lotion going to come out of my hair?
L: Daddy’s lotion (hair gel)
Me: I thought you only put water in your hair?
Then she rubs her head on my butt since I am doing the dishes and can’t cater to her immediately. Now I have to shower them before we leave and change my pants….ERG!
