On Saturday #184 (#4 for Harper) the morning started off on not the best note. I was very tired, as is the norm these days, Roo and I had a spat first thing in the morning, literally within minutes. He would not take no for an answer over pizza for breakfast. Harper was not happy to wake up to her brother screaming over pizza. As I juggled the baby and a 3 year old that was throwing himself at my feet screaming "Pizza! Pizza!Pizza!" My cat opted to get involved and I tripped over him, after about 20 minutes of chaos I threw the cereal away and handed him a slice of cold pizza. I had wasted enough energy on trying to serve him a normal breakfast. The morning continued at a rough pace. The house was pretty messy... no, it was dangerously messy thanks to the pile of books scattered in my living room and puzzle pieces, action figures, matchbox cars and other kid crap that had taken over. I might be able to go with the flow a little easier these days, but when it becomes a matter of safety I lose that resolve in a hurry.
My son was determined to make the morning drama filled, he is 3 and likes to get a reaction. So he tried his best to get a reaction from my husband, the dogs, his sister, the cat and myself... He tried so hard I am now hiding in a quiet room for a much needed Minute for Me!
We have no big plans today. I find that no matter how hard I try I can't avoid weekend shopping. This morning my coffee pot bit the dust shortly after my can opener stopped working... Perfect timing and both much needed items, so off to one of the retail giants to replace them I will go. That is really all I have in mind for this day. We might not all be in happy moods today, but we are all together... contributing the the grouchiness of one another. (Funny but true!)
I hope your family is in a better mood than mine was and you enjoy a great weekend with them!
