Well holy shit did this morning not quite get off to the best start.
The kids woke up at 4am despite being extremely sleep deprived from their 2am wake up yesterday. Yes, I did say 2am. They are also both currently sick with a cold right now, so now I have 2 sick, sleep deprived children. Now THATS a recipe for a good day. Oh yeah, and my 6 year old is on steroids now too, to top it off.
At 5:40 we hear a loud crash…and then crying. So…that’s always a good sign…right?
So my husband goes in there and I look at the monitor, and sure enough, their bookshelf is laying face first on the ground.
My 4, almost 5 year old, my wild child, the sweetest boy in the whole world but the boy without any sense…decided he “wanted to clean behind the bookshelf”, so he pushed it forward. Thankfully, no children were squished in the mornings events, but they sure were startled.
My husband and I dealt with it (and by that, I mean we’re getting rid of the bookshelf, which used to be MINE when I was a child, so…it’s old.) And replacing it with something new. Okay. Great.
Their room also smells quite potent of…sunscreen? But hey…we’re going to choose our battles this morning and move on. At least, that’s my plan. And I think my husbands plan too.
My mom was less…um…able to move on? So I got an earful from her about it. But, fine. I get it. Sometimes, as I told my 6 year old this morning…sometimes you just need to learn how to shut your damn mouth and say yes ma’am.
The kids are off and out of the house on their early morning adventure to Target! Yay, Target! Why? Because we need more children’s mucinex. Yayyyyy cold season!
This was not the post I planned on writing this morning, but…parenting. Am I right? If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
I’m in a surprisingly…fuck it kind of mood right now for how my morning started off, which I’m going to take as a good thing.
It’s going to be a tough weekend. My kids will not be in good moods. But I can prepare for it, and not let it get to me.
I can be okay, even if everyone else around me is grumpy.
