Mommyhood....Without the sugar coating!

I woke up this morning, no, not by myself, but to my screaming child with snot all over her nose and mouth. She continues to scream while I make her a bottle. I give it to her and she tosses it across the room, Chuck Norris style, and continues to scream. I try giving her medicine which gets all over her and the bed. I try to clean her up and she arches her back and screams what sounds like "why, why why?" To which I then think "Why is the toilet running?" I go and jiggle the handle to get it to stop and then hear a crash. Kennedy ran into the table, yet again, and is now screaming even LOUDER! I pick her up, get snot all over my shirt and try to get her to stop screaming. I think that going to the park will help calm her down, so we get ready and leave this death trap of a house. As soon as we get to the park, she fell...and I caught her...by her nostril! No joke! So now, she has a bloody nose, and a snotty nose and is crying again. I put her back in the stroller and head to Maui Tacos to get some lunch. I got a chicken taco and some chips. I turn my head for two seconds and Kennedy is choking on a chip which she stole off of my plate! I frantically pat her on the back and she is still choking! She then proceeded to throw up ALL OVER THE TABLE! I lost my appetite and we continued home. She fell asleep in the stroller (THANK GOODNESS), so I set her under a tree in the back yard and let her sleep...for an entire 20 minutes! Then the crying began again. I come inside, pour her some milk and try to apply for an online job. A few minutes later, she signs "milk, milk". "I just gave you your milk child! Where is it!" I look all over the house and can't find in ANYWHERE! So, I pour her more milk. She is mad that I am on the computer right now and keeps trying to type on the key board. HOLY CRAP! Being a mom is HARD!!!

I love being a mother! And one of these days swimming WILL work out! Tomorrow won't work for me and then I'll be out of town for a week. :( By the way, I love hearing your music... I don't think I listen to enough so it's fun to discover new songs on your blog.

You said it all. I have totally been there! Even just a few days ago...Brooklyn threw up GRAPE juice over the front AND back of my NEW beige shirt! Luckily it came out in the wash! And today - poop up the back that I didn't notice because of a cold...ALL over me! To the tub she went. But don't worry...they get easier the older they get;) Well, I guess there are give and takes? YES I would LOVE to get together. Name the time and place and I'm there! my cell# is 435-730-3510

I was dying laughing!!! It is good to know that I'm not the only one... just wait until you have two or more. The highs are so high and the lows... well, you'd better dust off "finding your sense of humor in ALL things', cuz you will need it! Not intended to scare you, but it is what it is and your kids will one day idolize you. After the teenage phase, that is! :)
