whole Mom thing. I love my kids I do, but I tell you what, three year olds will BREAK YOU!
Three is two with a purpose and that purpose is evil. It is tantrum throwing, opinion yelling, bipolar mood swinging evil. It makes me want to curl up in the fetal position and beg for mercy.
My daughter has very strong opinions about what she wears each day... fine, pick our you're own clothes, I don't care. Until she picks the out and STILL throws a fit every morning because she doesn't like what she picked out... OMG
I tell my daughter that after Mickey it's time to go to bed. I give her warnings like every 5 minutes... Mickey's over, time to go to bed. Enter epic meltdown that involves screaming for every family member she can think of...
I make an amazing dinner with all of her favorite foods and she informs me she doesn't like any of it, so then my Mother-in-law gives her dinner on another night of food that i wouldn't be able to force feed her and she happily eats every bite... OMG
I finally get demon spawn into bed after giving up on her crawling into bed and just throwing her into it and for the next hour she is screaming my name and on the few times I do respond she says things like "I want water" "I need you to spray for Monsters" "I just love this face" "I miss you Momma"... OMG
I come up with a great activity for painting (that she loves) but then have to end it because she wants to paint my table so we have a royal screaming melt down... OMG
Her 1 year old little brother touched her toy... OMG
I feel like I've tried most things and all I do is yell. Not to mention that my one year old follows me around like a little puppy crying until I pick him up ALL THE TIME! I've never been able to just walk around my house and do things without my one year losing his shit every time I make a move to get out of the chair. I am strapped to one place unless I want all children in my life to lose their shit... but now I'm losing my shit. WTH!
I want to be a good Mom. I want to be an organized Mom. I want to be a fit, healthy, and skinny Mom... BUT WHEN CAN I DO ALL OF THIS?!?!?
Here's my daily schedule.
515 Wake up, get ready, get the kids ready blah blah blah
630 Leave the house get the kids to daycare and commute to work
500 Pick up kids from daycare
530 and on into the evening Get home, feed the dogs, take them out, get dinner going, give baths, give Parker a breathing treatment, have Parker in bed by 630, have Kinsley in bed by 730.
SO around 730-8 I'm finally free, but there is always a kitchen to clean, laundry to switch, or lets be honest... DVR to catch up on...
I have to pick the kids up by 600pm from daycare... I hate to leave them there that long... I already have daycare feed Parker dinner because by the time i get him and get him home, etc... he won't eat, he just wants a bottle and bed.
So when is my ME time? at 8pm? Who wants to get their sweat on at 8pm? Not to mention I would have to do a video or something equally retarded. And that would mean cutting in on the hubs TV time then too...
SO I need to workout on my lunch hour... which doesn't always (or lately ever) happen.
I'm so tired of three. I'm so tired of a son that has to be ON MY HIP at ALL TIMES.
I'm just freaking tired.
But at least I've lost 2lbs!
