Do any moms or dads have days that you just want to go outside and SCREAM! The past 2 weeks my kids have been horrible. From the time they wake up until I FORCE them to bed they are fighting, whining or getting into something they know they are not suppose to. I stare at the clock waiting for Kyle to get off of work so I can have 5 minutes in the bathroom to cry. How sad! Addison & Lucas are starting to play very rough and fighting over every toy. They use to play great together! Owen is teething so that explains him! Addison & Lucas were not bad when it came to teething but Owen SCREAMS & SCREAMS until I give him medicine.
If I have a schedule of the day and the kids know it, then we usually have a good day. They need me doing different activities every second though. So far today, this has been our schedule.
8:00am - wake up - change diapers and clothes
8:20am - eat - toast and yogurt
8:45am - yes... 25 minutes later... clean up time. Addison got the broom and Lucas got the dust pan... I think they made a BIGGER mess for ME to clean up!
9:00am - wash hands and I clean up the mess in the kitchen
9:15am - scavenger hunt
9:40am - kids started fighting so they went to time out (ahhh... relax time)
9:41am - Owen started screaming.. relax time is OVER
10:00am - get stuff out to make a Christmas tree craft out of their hand prints!
10:01am - they were spitting on the paper so I put it away
10:15am - snack time - celery & pb
10:45am - clean up time - Addison got the broom and Lucas got the dustpan. This time they actually cleaned up good... maybe it was because no food actually hit the floor! :-D
10:55am - Wash hands... peanut butter does not come off easy. Somehow they managed to get it all over the mirror, sink, toilet and door!
11:00am - I put on Handy Manny in my room, Owen fell asleep in the swing and the kids watched the show while I cleaned up the bathroom.
It's not even noon and I'm ready for bed! not a nap... bedtime. Any other parents feel like this ever?
