Our internet keeps going out so if this gets posted it will be a 1/2 miracle.
I wish the internet going out didn't ruin my day as much as it does but it really ruins it. I know, internet cessation classes are all the rage but ... not for me right now. (Although I don't think I knew the extent of my addiction until the robot lady prerecorded help BS with the internet company asked, "a series of questions" ending in, "and has your modem ever worked?" at which point I covered Sebastian's ears and let Soothing Voice have it.)
Okay, so today! Not great. Wow, that Grace - she really only blogs about her bad days. Well, you got me.
And really? Does she need to post SO many pictures of her kids?
1. Julia put lipstick on to go to Costco because that's what we ladies do around here.
2. laugh-cry because I stopped doing jumping jacks ... his favorite thing to watch and try to emulate with forearm flaps
3. I walked out to dispose of a diaper (is that all I do ever? I'll never tell) and came back to the corpse of Theo content with his fitting from our resident cobbler, Sebastian
Okay, so it wasn't terrible but Julia. Ohhhhhh, Julia. I guess I never realized how pleasant she was until she became the person she is today. Former Julia was mostly fun with splashes of really awful and now she is mostly really awful with glimmers of, "oh, did she stop growling for a second? that felt nice." I think she still isn't feeling well (ha! says the mom of the bratty two year old) even though she hasn't had a fever for a few days and I'm hoping she snaps out of right quick or else I might be seeking employment somewhere else. Not funny because I'm not joking. Simon thinks she is maybe experiencing a touch of early onset PMS. Also, not funny because he wasn't joking.
Sebastian spilled a bag of flour ... I was too frustrated to even take a picture which is very frustrated because we all know I love a "kids making messes!!! this is awful!!" photo op. He does this thing right before he knows he's going to get caught where he speed works. In this case after he was spotted he grabbed three more rapid fire handfuls of flour out to throw into the floor vent and onto Julia's precious Dora socks (which she thought was about hilarious as you can imagine: n-o-t). Anyway, I know I need a pantry lock. I'll get on it.
Let me send you off to happier pastures via the Internet ....
I kind of bet you've already ready Dwija's post, "NFP doesn't work. You have so many kids!" but it's good. The internet is teeming with NFP posts but this is a really good one.
Also, I kind of bet you've seen Anna's new design but look how pretty and polished it is!
Another one you've probably already seen ... Hallie's Five Favorites (and ALL the linkers!) ... always a mood lifter.
And I'm starting to read more (fine, I recently read two books and now I think I can put "avid reader" under hobbies on my resume) but Jen recommends five books over here. Again, I'm sure you've seen it.
Anyway - if you hear about a St. Louis internet technician that escaped near death by way of a frazzled housespouse ... you'll know he came in and woke up all three kids. Beware, Justin.
(oh, and his hair is thinning. Just what this stage mom needs.)
