I watched Corinne RUN (not even 10 months old yet, for cryin out loud) from the living room to the kitchen and then fall (in slow motion, or so it seemed) flat on her little nose. She had a pacifier in her mouth, too, so it smacked her mouth.
Um, yeah. A shriek, a tear and she was off again. I am in sooo much trouble with this one.
We visited Justin's classroom today as he starts second grade tomorrow! WTF? That's literally impossible because there is no WAY I'm old enough to have a second grader!! I mean, I am still just a kid, too! Right? RIGHT?!?
Managed to CLEAN the master bathroom and even make the bed and do several loads of laundry after Patrick's little tizzy fit last night. He flipped out after Evan smeared toothpaste all over the already filthy bathroom sink. Yeah, well. I feel his pain. The house is trashed, but you know what? I DID manage to clean a lot today, but only because I let the boys play freakin video games for 3 hours while Corinne napped and I cleaned. So, really? Is a clean house worth that? I think not.
Evan totally loved getting some Daddy time out in the backyard tonight. We have GOT to make sure to spend some more alone time with him. He tends to get grouped: Either he's with Justin or with Corinne or with both, but rarely does he do anything alone. Preschool starts in 2 weeks, and I think that this will really be good for him. Now, for Me? Well, I may shed a few (or many) tears over it...
Damn. I have to sign off and I CAN NOT check another single blog or email or anything cuz I have to arise at 6 am to beat the baby's wake up call or I'll miss the shower window...
Adieu. Wish me luck with scheduling and PLEASE OH PLEASE LORD, PLEASE let Justin have a good year in school!!!
