Rocky
I'm supposed to take the kids to our homeschool playgroup this morning, but I just can't get it together. For one Rocky's nose is running like a river. He's had a cold for awhile so I don't think he can spread it. I know though that if we go, he'll do what he usually does and try to eat all the sand in the sand box and I don't want to deal with a snotty and sandy baby. Jack and I had a battle over a banana this morning. He asked for one, and then as soon as I peeled it he smiled and said he didn't want it. NOT FUNNY. Well for the last hour he as sat at the table and refused to eat the 1/2 that I told him he had to eat. He screamed, cried, rolled around on the floor. Finally I said fine, then go back to bed for 10 minutes. I thought this was a good out for him, but no, this started another round of theatrics. UG. Now he is quietly reading in bed, even though I told him he could come out. I'm not feeling like this is going to be a good day. I hope it turns around, maybe a Starbucks would help?

Dude, I KNOW THESE DAYS.

The great part about being a grownup is that if you don't want to get it together and be somewhere, you don't have to!

Said by the mom who's still in her sweats at 11:00. My eye is twitching from my morning. Hope the day goes better and get yourself a Venti!

I have those days all the time and I don't even have children. Imagine if I had kids. Thank goodness you're so put together to only have days like this here and there!!

I *hate* it when the he-child reqests I make something, only to declare he didn't and that the food is 'yuk'.

And wasted bananas is just a no-no.

Seriously, I think Jack channeled my child just for this post...
