How's it going? I'm horrible.
This morning was particularly exhausting. Violet was up around 5:30 yelling "Momma! Momma! Momma!" from her crib... I tried to ignore her and hope she fell back asleep, but nope. Well, when I went to go see what the issue was, she had puked everywhere in her crib. She points to it and says "Barf." Yeah, sweetie, barf...
So, whatever, I'm overly exhuasted, all of this lack of sleep is really catching up with me. So, I just grab her taggie, pick her up and lay her in bed with me for another 30 minutes. But then it's time to get up and get ready for work.
Usually I get ready when they are still asleep, or at least still in their cribs. So, it is not easy getting ready with Violet awake and following me around. She needs attention, and she is a chatterbox so she has to talk extremely loudly about everything. "Make-up. Momma. Face." "Down Momma" (because she wants me to sit down on the floor next to her. "Hurrrr" means 'hair.' And so on...
Finally I am all ready and I can start the usual routine of getting the kids ready. I get Violet all dressed and in her chair to eat breakfast. Then I go get Charlotte. While I'm trying to get Charlotte ready, Violet is freaking out because of the buttons on her shirt... They are just there for decoration, but she wants them buttoned. How do I explain that they don't button, they are just for looks? Then she is complaining about owies, and everything else, and that she wants down. Well, we are already behind schedule, so I don't feel like dealing with trying to get her to sit and eat, so I just get her out of her chair and let her run free. And of course, if Violet is running free, then Charlotte needs to be too. Fine. Whatever.
Then I get Will up and start getting him dressed. And the girls are fighting over toys. "Mine." "Mine." Ugh...
So, I'm trying to break up their fight while still trying to get Will dressed. Then Charlotte has to sit in my lap, which makes it extremely difficult to get Will dressed.
I just had no energy for all of this nonsense...
So basically, as usual, our morning was chaos. But I didn't even feel like forcing everyone to do what they were supposed to be doing. So, it was just a free-for-all. Everyone running all over the place. It took forever for us to finally get out the door.
Then, I had Violet and Charlotte loaded into the car, and I pick up Will, and of course, he has a poo-splosion going on... ugh... So then I have to change him and his clothes. Fortunately none of it got on me, because that has also happened before, where I need an outfit change too.
Once we get to school, the girls have to look at the snowman by the door, then the Christmas tree in the lobby, then the other snowman on their way to the classroom, then the "bee-bees" in their classroom... Then I have to take off their hats, mittens, and coats. Then Violet doesn't want me to leave so she is hanging on me. The teacher finally had to rip her off of me... Then I drop Will off, and I am just moving slow motion getting his bottles out and stuff.
And finally I'm out and on my way to work. Then I realize I forgot Will needed diapers at school. And I never brought them... Ugh... I'm just hoping they have enough there to cover him for today and I'll bring them in next week.
Then I get to work, and in order to work on one of these products, I need a little more information from someone. And the person gives me a really stupid/lazy answer... Ugh... Usually, I would be nice and just try to better explain what I needed and why I needed it, but today, I was just like, whatever! In my true passive-aggressive nature, I wrote him a snarky email that said fine, I'll do it the lazy way, but I'm just letting you know that it's wrong so you need to add this special little note so that everyone knows it's not my fault that it's wrong.
Yeah, blah. I'm having a bad attitude today. Have I mentioned I'm exhausted?
Anyways, everyone needs to beware of my wrath, I'm on a warpath. I'm just too tired to be nice today.
I miss you.
