Hello there. It's been a while....
Last week during one of our crazy days where I played bus driver for my kids and my sister's kids (and we had an unexpected doctor trip ANDY Anthony had a dinner that night), I fed my kids fast food twice in one day. Whataburger for lunch and McDonald's for dinner. You can judge, but I was on straight up survival mode. It wasn't my proudest moment.
A few weeks ago we went to the zoo, and Charley Kate walked almost the entire trip barefoot. Pick your battles people.
I have recently resorted to two caffeine drinks a day- every day. One in the morning and one around 2:00. I'm not just talking a DP. I'm talking a legit caffeinated drink. I am so tired.
We got in the car to grab some lunch as a family one Saturday. We all got out and I fussed at CK to put her shoes on (she takes them off every car ride- it annoys me to no end!!!). Well this time she took them off before we even made it to the car- meaning we had NO shoes for her at the restaurant! While some families would have gone home, we just carried her around everywhere. So bad!
I scheduled a doctor's appointment with our pediatrician "just to talk." Seriously, my kids have had some random things lately, and I needed to get his take on everything. The first-time-mom me would have never done this. The seasoned mom me doesn't care!
I hate doing kids' laundry. Put me in the bad parent club or whatever. I'm sure there are articles out there about "embracing each tiny sock," but I can't stand folding all those small pieces of clothing.
I went "shopping" at my sister's house the other day. I shopped in her closet for a birthday present for my niece, and I shopped in her freezer for dinner that night. I love sisters.
