Moaning Monday

Some of you are already experiencing Tuesday but for two more hours, it is Monday so I can moan and whine all I want.

Today is one of those days where I can seriously tell myself, I'm too old for this!

This is the recap of the day:

Dirty contact lens taken out to clean, went down the drain

Baby Boo peed in her pants not once, not twice but three times today. Bribing her with Princess Tianna fruit snacks DID NOT work.

Went to Sam's Club praying that I could get fitted for another pair of contacts. Result: Sam Club is closing in my area because they haven't made enough money to remain open. End result: Still wearing dorky thick glasses

Came home to two year old gloating that she "had meat" while I was gone because "Daddy gave it to me". Sidenote...Baby Boo doesn't go nuts over candy or sweets but meat. She can eat meat for days. She could probably eat a whole cow in one sitting. The other day, she ate all of the meat out of a lunchable, begged for mine and then her dad's. When she doesn't get her way she whines, "Pleassssse". So, she waited until I walked out the door and worked her begging magic.

Went to the store with Baby Boo only for her to embarrass me by saying that the kid having a tantrum next to us, needed his mommy to spank him for "him being bad".

Cleaned two gigantic fish that I caught which took me almost two hours...while prying Play Doh out of 10 month old puppy's mouth. (He'll be pooping in colors for a few days.)

Got into debate with above mentioned two year old over her not liking but "loving" Sponge Bob because he's her "best friend".

Got into another debate because two year old doesn't want to go to library school tomorrow because she "doesn't want to be smart". (Her exact words).

I am wrung out. Please don't tell me "this too shall pass" because while it's here, it sure ain't fun!!

It won't pass...it will just morph into something else. You have grown kids...you know it's always something.

Why don't they tell us this before we contemplate having children???!!! There should be CAUTION signs or WARNING tags....

One day at a time Simone. We did the potty training thing with godson-- Had him sit on the potty every 30 minutes for 5 minutes. He got so bored that eventually he got with the program.

Sorry about the contacts. That has to be a pain. Hope it's resolved soon.

Hang in there.

Reminds me of a certain day I had many years ago... I might have to dig that up and tell the story! It sounds like you NEED my Limoncello, but today!

Helene said...

Yep, it never really does get easier, does it? It just gets...well, different, for lack of a better word.

Hang in there!!

How funny that she likes meat more than candy!!

Hang in there, Simone!!

Hope your day gets better by the time you read this.

I like Joanna's potty training tip! Hope you are having a better day now. I once heard a theory that if we all sat in a circle & could put our problem in the middle of the cirlcle to give that problem away ( but must pick another problem from the pile) that we would each take our own problem back.

To answer your question about mom's dog Halle, her relo to Alaska is permanent. We love her! xoxo

Good Morning Sweetie...
I wish I could tell you it will pass, but unfortunately it won't, it comes back to you in the form of grandchildren. I have 7 grands and another on the way in June, and it seems like when it comes back in this generation it gets worse. The plus side, You get to send these kids home. Yippeee. Hang in there sweetie. One day at a time, one crisis at a time. We do the best that we can at that time, and know that we love our kids, and you just move on. You are doing a great job.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Sorry girlfriend, although it is Hubby's favorite sayin' it doesn't pass the scenarios just change. I would hold Camp~Grandma when the kids would that the youth to Youth Camp. I have weaned them from the breast, potty trained and worked on speech therapy during these camps. So keep the chin up, ya have a long haul ahead! Heeeheehe!

May this be better and filled with many good blessings!!!

I hear you. Sometimes you just need to moan about it. We've all been there! Or at least somewhere near there...

Danica said...

LOL I do have to say baby boo is so cute!!! Hang in there...one day at a time. I know..easier said than done, right?

HUGS

Sometimes on days like that one, I simply can't wait for the nighttime to come and for it to be all over.

Here is hoping for a better tomorrow!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

There are days like this aren't there? Where nothing seems to go "right" and everything seems to be belly-up...and you certainly had one.

Life with a 2 year old (and a play doh eating puppy!) is never an easy road...the whole day would make me want to pee in MY pants!!!! :)

You do such a fantastic job with your sweet toddler! Seriously amazing! You inspire me to be a better person!
