That one little word completely sums up my day!
It all started off with the shower.
I was in the shower first thing this morning enjoying my peace and quiet before any children woke up. I go to reach for the shampoo bottle and an extremely large wolf spider climbed out from underneath it! My first reaction was to scream and then to figure out how to kill it. There was a cup in the tub and it ran right into it. I put a little soap and water in with it thinking that would kill it. I was wrong. They can swim. So by now I have kids moving around because of my scream. So I yelled for one of them and had them dispose of our guest outside.
All of the bathroom commotion caused me to get behind. So I asked Ben to help Jacob get dressed. I laid the clothes out for Jacob and went to finish getting ready.
The morning went pretty good. I had the exterminator come out to spray my house down in hopes that it will get rid of all these spiders. So far so good.
Then it was nap time for the twins. Emma proceeded to take her clothes off and diaper a good 5 times after I laid her down. So needless to say a nap did not happen today.
So off we went to pick up the other kids from school. Since they did not have a nap – Eli screamed the whole way to the school and while we sat and waited for the boys. Still not exactly sure what that was all about.
As I was watching Jacob walk to the car, I noticed he had on the same shirt he wore yesterday! I guess it wasn’t such a good idea to let Ben help him get dressed. Ugh! They probably thought “what an awful mother! She made her kid wear the same thing he wore yesterday!” Oh and did I mention that today was picture day??
That brings us to returning home where Emma proceeded to continue taking her clothes off. I finally gave up and just put underware on her. She hasn’t had an accident but she also hasn’t used the potty.
I proceeded to try to order some Halloween costumes after supper. This was a complete failure due to the company’s site. So after a half an hour of being on the phone with this company while kids were screaming in the background I still didn’t get them ordered.
These children have been wild and I have never looked so forward to bedtime! And bedtime arrived early tonight.
Silence has never sounded so good!
