Today was a day. And its only 2pm. Baby refused to pee in the potty, even for a bribe of candy. Big kids shrieked all morning, why didn't THEY get candy? They pee in the potty all the time! Mommy gave them candy. Fine. Baby refused to pee. Baby screamed hysterically. Baby got candy. Baby then refused to nap. After mama worked on scrubbing down the stovetop, working out angry energy, baby was found outside 15 minutes later covered from head to toe in mud, courtesy little miss. As I walked out to her she says, "Mama! I do potty here! On my yeg (leg)!"
Baby in bath. Kids swinging. Mama blogs, after sneaking spoonfuls of ice cream straight out of the carton.
Ah yes. Today.
And then an hour later and baby finally goes to sleep. And I pour myself a giant glass of sweet tea and sit out on the deck to write. And the kiddies are happy playing under the deck on the swings. And I throw them candy, and yes, say sorry for losing my cool. And all is well.
Ah yes, today.
