Not So Hot Day...

The first part of the day was not so bad, lounged around home, the kids played outside, i did various things around the house, then put Ethan down for a nap after lunch- he took a great one...My nightmare started once i decided to leave the house to get out for awhile (oh yes, i forgot to mention that daddy is out of town so i am solo all weekend) I decided to go to a consignment shop to see if i could find a dress for Raegan. When we first walked in the door i thought, oh cool they have this new neat little sitting area with tons of books. The kids started out there while i started looking around, next think i know i hear things flying off the shelves. Ethan had decided to clear off one of the shelves, so i'm quickly putting things back. By this time he has become bored with the reading area and he's running through the store with one of those push popper things, and i'm sure giving all the moms a headache because it was sure giving me one! After a few more chase downs (with i'm sure all the moms saying "she has no control over her child" they are right at that point i had no control, i'm chasing Ethan carrying a carseat) i decide it's time to pay and get the heck out of dodge. Meanwhile i asked Trey to get Ethan and get him over to me, to which Trey completely ignored and Avery took upon herself insuing a game of cat and mouse with a screaming with delight almost two year old running up and down the aisles. I could not yank them out of the store fast enough! A sane mom would have called it quits and gone home after that but this insane mom needed diapers so we headed to Target. I was just going to get a few groceries and diapers and get out of there quickly. Ethan in the front and car seat in the back doesn't leave much room for groceries, so i had to put stuff up by Ethan...not a good idea. He decided to start pitching stuff in the back, and before i could stop him had thrown the sandwich meat container and hit Raegan in the head and scratched her head which of course got her screaming bloody murder. I never could get her calmed down, she screamed the rest of the way through the store and out to the car (it was time to eat too). I think my blood pressure was about to go through the roof by the time we got out of there. Oh yea and i forgot to mention Ethan took his shoes off and threw them out of the cart at least 10 times while we were there. I swear he grew horns tonight and turned into a little... well a 2 yr old i guess :) The kids are in bed now and i think my blood pressure is finally going back down. I got my toenails repainted. They have looked like crud for 3 weeks and it took me that long to find some time to redo them. Pretty pathetic when it's a major accomplishment to get your toenails painted. :) I am feeling a little sleep deprived and a little, well a lot snappy with the kids so when Johnny get's home tomorrow i get a NAP, sleep, uninterupted sleep!! -On a funny note today this morning Trey was sitting on the couch and i looked over and saw he had a thermometer in his mouth, i quickly told him to get it out of his mouth- it was Raegan's rectal thermometer. You should have seen the sick look on his face. He went to the bathroom and washed his mouth with soap and then brushed his teeth. He was quite grossed out. I guess i need to watch where i leave that laying around. :)

LOL!!!! Oh my gosh, that was great! I can so totally relate to your shopping experience. I think Braden's terrible 2-dom has begun already. I about broke a rib laughing at Trey washing out his own mouth with soap! That is classic! Please tell me you got a picture of that! That is hilarious!!! :)

I almost forgot, I was going to comment about your toenail painting--Girl, you really have to have more adult conversation and get out more. Blogging about painting your toenails, that's just about as bad as Val always talking about food on her blog. HA-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha!!! Just had to give you a hard time cause I thought it was so funny! :)

I am pretty sure at 4 kids is when I stopped going out with them all. Every trip out was like that.

It is funny to read about it when it is someone else, though. :0)
