Microblog Monday: Losing My Mind
Today is one of those days that I totally feel like I'm losing my mind as a sahm. Rylee spent a good 30 minutes straight this morning in total meltdown mode, unless I was holding her. Of course this all happened while I was trying to make breakfast. Ayden was in a great mood, but he makes me want to beat my head against the wall with all the trouble he manages to get into. He gets into EVERYTHING.
So I decided after breakfast that I would take them outside, a nice distraction for Rylee and a chance for Ayden to burn off some energy. It was cold, but not raining. It took FOREVER to get them ready! I literally had to put on Rylee's gloves 5 times, her hat 3 times, and did a jacket rezip once. I put Ayden's gloves on 3 times. Twin problems - while getting one ready, the other undoes everything you just did to get them ready! Repeat, repeat, repeat. Oh. Em. Gee. After all that, we only got 20 minutes outside before we had to come back in because Rylee pooped. Grrrr...
Back in the house, more whining and constant pulling on my pants. I never knew it would be so difficult to stay dressed with kids around!!! Fighting ensued between them and toys went into time out.
It is now finally nap time. Thank goodness, because someone (I'm not sure who) was not going to survive much longer. PLEASE let it be a long nap day....
