So that pretty much sums up my life lately: Ugh. Actually, more like UGH! I don't know if it's just the fact that winter has cooped us all up together long enough or what. But man my kids are driving my crazy. CrAzY, cRaZy. And not really in a good way. UGH! Miles is negatively questioning everything lately - as well as talking back, as well as "accidentally" doing such-and-such to so-and-so 50 times an hour. Jonas has frankly become quite rude at times - along with his usually whiny-ness. Now when he's mad he grunts - for like 10 minutes. No joke. That's actually kind of funny. Kind of. But kind of annoying too. Emmy continues to scream, yell, and talk ugly. Today she told me, "I don't like you. You can't go to bed at nighttime (I guess that was some kind of threat?) She told me she didn't like me at a time when I actually had my patience. Oh well. I bit my tongue and did not say anything back to her. It was hard.
Want my kids?
Maybe Emmy should fire me.
And on top of all the pleasantness (not) from my children, Lucy has a cold/cough that wakes her up during the night. So now I get to wake up every few hours during the night - ugh. But I did finish a book with all the extra night-time feedings.
The house is a mess. Especially the boys' room. I am ready to do a huge spring clean-out. So ready.
But I do love my children. Really. We have grand moments that make me smile and happy (they just seem a little too few lately. . .)
Like this:Lucy was super-excited about the painting supplies.
P.S. Thankfully Miles' b-day is tomorrow - time to liven things up and hopefully lead to a more chipper day for all of us!
