This One Spoke STRAIGHT to My Heart!

While cruisin’ and paroozin’ the blog scene today, I came across this post via AtlantaMomofThree’s Blast from the Past blog post.

It was like she was taking the events and words STRAIGHT FROM MY HOUSE/MOUTH!  I thought this SO much that I requested I be able to share it with all of you!  The only difference is that it would have been, “My COKE! Why!!??!” lol

It reminds me so much of my very first post when my children painted the walls.  😉  

Thank you for allowing me to use it Lynn!!

—” Some days, okay most days, I seriously wonder why I bother spending so much time in the run of a day cleaning.

Yesterday I opened the dishwasher to empty it, to have Alex reach up to get something off the counter (that he shouldn’t even have been touching) and knock my last full can of Pepsi off the counter into the dishwasher… all over my dishes. I didn’t care too much about having to run the dishes through again.. I mean really all I needed to do was throw some soap in and push a button. But it was my last can of pop!! And since my back was turned I lost over half of it to my dishes.

Today I had a basket of laundry sitting on the floor that I needed to fold after I put Nick down for his nap. So I bring Nick up, leaving Alex downstairs, as I normally do. I come down to find him shaking his sippy cup upside down over my clean clothes watering them with apple juice the way the character on TV was watering his carrot.

I have also walked in on him and Nick throwing cheerios at one another. And then laughing hysterically while they crush them into my FRESHLY swept floor. Now I remember why I stopped letting them eat cheerios in the living room while they watched Barney and I tried to do laundry.

Add in the way they take every single toy out of the toy boxes and throw them around the house 30 seconds after I just finished picking them all up, and I am sure everyone can see the frustration.

Alex helps me pick up his toys now. I thought it would be an incentive to put the toys away after he uses them so it would take less time. Turns out cleaning with Momma is fun. Now when I say we are going to pick up toys when I am finished with the dishwasher he runs to the toy bins and empties them as fast as he can. *sigh*  Ah well. What can I do. I’m sure one day soon I’ll blink and they’ll be all moved out and I’ll be wishing for these days again! For now, this Momma is going to finish her coffee and go get the laundry out of the dryer. Again.

Love, hugs and more to come later!

Whew!  What a day!

This morning started out PERFECT with baby snuggling!  🙂  My Favorite!  

Then, we got up and got some breakfast.  I even managed to get some cleaning done!!  

And then…   I sat down to blog.  :-\

My darling boys needed to share Daddy’s water.  

Ok…  

When they were done they thought Mom should hold it.  

Ok…  

After their thirsts were quinched, they decided to get back to playing.  On the couch.  On either side of me…  Derek looses a toy while playing…  “MOM!  Can you please help me!!”

Sure bud!

I put the computer to the, side and I pick up my keyboard (you know, the plug in type…my husband had to buy last Christmas after I spilled coffee on the laptop keyboard) to move with me as I get up to look for the toy…

Does anyone remember what I DIDN’T move??!?  WATER!!  YES!  The whole cup of water splashes onto the NEW keyboard.  😉  That’s me!!!

At first it seemed fine… Prior to leaving for shopping I tried to check my “stuff”. The keyboard was no longer “fine”.

**Sigh**

The funny thing about all of this is that the day seemed to be extremely exhausting, at the time. Now that I am sitting here typing this, the only crazyness I can think of is the water… Me and water. *Sign* again…

I got a new keyboard while I was out at the store, so all is well on the McCrazy blog…

Note to self: Water resistant keyboard may not be SO water resistant… :-/
