Where are your parents?

Okay, so lately my children have been whiny and needy and fighting and etc. etc. etc. The house is a mess, I look like I haven't slept in weeks, something's gotta give. I know that a lot of it has to do with being cooped up in this house for day and days and end because of how cold it has been outside. But I am not sure where the rest of it is coming from.

Last night we "enjoyed" a family dinner at Friendly's. Beanie was testing her lung strength, Booger was seeing how many times he could get out of seat before my head exploded, and for some crazy reason Peanut was rocking back and forth in a chair which was clearly NOT made for rocking. At one point I wanted to stand up and say "WHERE ARE YOUR PARENTS? WE HAVE BEEN WAITING HERE FOR 15 MINUTES AND THEY ARE LATE!!!!" Just so people wouldn't think that this crazy brood belonged to me.

My children are blessings from God, I love them dearly. But sometimes, just sometimes, I wonder if today is the day I will actually lose my mind!


  1. I nearly spit out my water...oh my. So sorry things have been trying lately...just remember the rewards that are soon to come!

  2. Thanks April, I know they are, we have already had a much better today. Yesterday was just.....well, at least it's in the past, moving forward.

  3. Hilarious and brilliant idea!! I believe God gives us challenges so we truly appreciate the better days. And for future laughter!

  4. I am dying laughing, but then feeling your pain all at the same time. It's just crazy how crazy kids can get.
