Laugh or cry? How about both?

I know people have real problems so forgive my whining. Can we just fast forward to the weekend already?

Last night, just before bed time, Jordan tripped and hit her forehead on the tile floor. I was concerned about her when I put her to bed but she seemed to be okay. I woke up nauseated around 2:30 and laid in bed for an hour just trying to go back to sleep. I got up and checked on Jordan and finally went back to sleep. Then Jordan made a strange sound around 5:30 and started crying really hard. It freaked me out but she was fine. Maybe a bad dream?

Then this morning Jordan has been trying to climb and stand on the kitchen chairs, climb over the BACK of the kitchen chair, has fallen off the couch a couple of times, thrown fits over something as simple as wanting to be the one to open the door for the dog... All while I was attempting to tackle the huge mess that is my house. I also needed to go to the Post Office but by the time I showered we didn't have enough time to go before lunch. Jordan was already ready to go and wanted to go "bye bye" so I thought we would go outside. I got the child dressed while she fought me every step and we get outside... it's raining. That's awesome but we are in the middle of a drought and NOW it's raining? Then I fed her lunch and all of it went on the floor. I gave up and decided to eat my nasty Spaghettio's I bought yesterday. (Don't judge me, I haven't had them in years but I had a coupon and for some reason they sounded good.) I was putting the bowl in the microwave and dropped it. I actually burst into tears. How pathetic is that? The funny part is that Jordan was giggling because she thought I was laughing.

Some of the O's were actually down in the stove top. How the heck to you get them out?? A wet/dry/Spaghettio vac? I decided on chop sticks. Operation style. I had a moment, chop sticks in hand, and I realized how ridiculous the situation was.

Yep, it's been a long week.

Big hugs to you - BTDT on days/weeks like that. Eventually - maybe by Monday - you will be laughing about it all.

Oh, how I've been there! Sorry it's one of those weeks for you. I always look forward to the weekends on off weeks too. An extra set of hands seems to reset the week.

Sorry about Jordan's head bonks. Andrew is the King of hitting his head, he has a bruise on it at all times. Some are self inflicted bonks, when he's throwing a fit and some are because he's trying to run and he's a bit top heavy (his head is in the 100th %tile and his weight is in the 4th) I'm seriously amazed at the tumbles he can take and rebound like it's nothing. Resilient little things, these toddlers are!

I agree about the wine...sounds like you need to start daytime drinking. Smile

So nausea and Spaghettio cravings eh?

Me either!

I hope tomorrow is a better day. I won't judge you on eating spaghettio's. We have 2 cans in our cupboard. I only wish Miles would eat them, like everything else in the world, LOL!

This had escaped me! Just the other day I was telling my friend that I had a dream she was a lesbian and she reminded me that the last time I dreamt that was when I was pregnant. But I'm just strange that way...

And I'm now having a small glass of wine. (Sticking with night time drinking... for now.) Tomorrow is a new day.

I am glad you had some wine. I am also a little suspicious of the nausea and cravings! Biggrin

We have many moments/days/weeks like this in our house. With both girls so active, we have many bumps, scrapes, climbs, falls, etc.. I have had days where something will just push me over the edge and I just cry. My poor DS gets very worried when that happens. My girls just ignore my emotional outbursts. HA! My twins really do cause me to feel very overstimulated on occasion. That is when mommy has to give herself a time out.

Also, no judgements about your food choice. We have several things in our pantry that I am sure the food police would find suspicious. I have an app on my iPhone called Fooducate. Yeah, don't get it! Lol It makes me feel guilty.

Oh my! What an adventure! I've had days where I've broken dishes, which had dinner inside, while Aiden is crying yet again. I think bad days are meant to help us appreciate the good ones more. Wink

Interesting....

And, I've resorted to day time drinkig before. Just the act of pouring a half a glass made me feel better.

Oh yeah, nothing wrong with an occasional daytime drink. Biggrin Sometimes, you just need it!
