i’m still here. yup.
between being locked up in my bathroom thinking to myself as the two younger ones keep banging on my door as i do do-do…”they say that i’m going to miss this someday. i think they are full of poop.”
cause i’m pretty sure that i will enjoy going to the bathroom without having to hear from the other side of the door “MOOOOOOMMMMM????!!!! where did mom go?! MOOOOOOOOMMMMM?! are you in there?! mom, MOM,MOM,MOM,MOM,MOM,MOM,MOM,MOM,MOM!!!!!”
me: sigh “what is it? i’m kind of busy here.”
child: “oh she’s in there. MOM…can you make cookie dough?”
child has multiplied into two now: “WHAT WHY???!!!”
me: “well, one is i’m pooping. don’t think i can do that right now while i’m on the toilet. and two, it’s like 7:50 in the morning so pretty sure that would put me on the “bad mom” status.”
child: “MOM! CAN I PLAY ON THE IPAD?!”
2nd child: “NO FAIR WHY CAN’T I PLAY ON THE IPAD?!”
me: “NO ONES PLAYING ON THE IPAD TILL WE DO THE CHORES AND READ FOR 20 MINUTES.”
feet running away.
hmmm put that on my mental note pad on how to get some quiet while going to the bathroom.
and again being locked up in the car driving back from the pool with all four kids with me and again the two younger ones are bantering back and forth:
girl noise maker says: “well i’m going to be what mommy is when i grow up!”
and 3rd noise maker says: “a minion pooper?”
in his defense, i do call them “my minions” and apparently we need to at some point teach him that you don’t necessarily poop out kids.
we only have about one more month of summer left. (WHAT?!) so we are in slow motion on the ol blog. but eh, i figured you are probably pooping in your bathroom with minions at your door too, so you don’t care.
good news is that i did get a few minutes the other day and i sewed. so tomorrow i will have a “christmas in july” project to show. 🙂
we’ll talk soon, and may you get a few minutes to yourself at some point today.
