I have absolutely no control

July 28, 2006 · 2 comments

None. At. All.

The boys are psycho awake right now; 2 hours ago I was wondering if they were going to make it to seven o’clock.  Apparently, all they needed was their dad to leave and some food, and they were right back in the game.  We’ve done crafts, we’ve played soccer, Matt is currently playing Buzz Lightyear on the couch (yes, it’s an accident waiting to happen, but I’ve surrounded him with pillows for a few minutes of peace).  Preston was practically asleep until the dog threw a soggy toy on him and Matt got all excited.  Is there a word bigger than frustrated? If so, that’s me.  😉   Of course, the way they’re laughing and carrying on, it’s hard to get mad at them…ok, well, it’s not as easy as when they are both whining and crying.  Oy.  They don’t seem to know the meaning of the words “quiet time” anymore.  It appears I shall wait for them to simply pass out on the floor and then carry their little bodies up to their beds.  <rolleyes>  🙂

In good news, I was able to get Preston birthday invites out today. Mike watched a scary movie so I hid up in the  bedroom half-watching some good eye candy (SWAT).

Alas, the screaming has started again. Wish me luck!

No control huh? Well the first step is admitting it! : ) You have authority- but control is an illusion- especially with kids, you should know better!! he he he! Hey what am I razzing you for, my second dose of trouble will be her before I know it and my blogs will sound like yours! Remember that you\'re AWESOME, but even super mommies need their rest- we\'re no good to our familes sick and worn out. I\'m thinking a mani/pedi day with lunch, September 9th maybe?? Let me know if you\'re interested! S
