I want to be the best mom I can possibly be. I am up every day racing against the clock to get a million things done for and with my kids. Every single thing I clean up gets immedietly messed up by someone and I sometimes feel like why do I even bother to clean it in the first place? And then theres the fact that the whole ten minutes I actually sat down today I had not one, but two kids on my lap even though the laptop was in my lap.
You know you need a break when you get to close the door when going to the bathroom and that feels like a vacation in and of itself.
Sorry to vent. I was finally feeling a little space tonight as the two older boys were in the bath and I was making Kyler's bed up with clean sheets (did I mention today was "clean all the sheets" day in my house, therefore like 8 loads of laundry on top of all the other cleaning I did?) when keaton was trying to help me and tripped over a sheet as I was picking it up- he fell into the dresser and split his lip open--resulting in a fat lip, lots of tears, and BLOOD all over the newly washed sheets. It about pushed me over the edge.
Oh don't worry my friends. I need a good vent now and then and then I bounce back to my usually happy self. My mom coming will be the exact break I need. We have every day planned with a few fun things and we are planning a girls night out, just the two of us. I am SO EXCITED! So next time I post, lets hope this slump is over and I am refreshed and renewed!

Now I think my next job is explaining what the ladies in the workout video are wearing...I think they are young enough that it hasn't really crossed their mind that they are scantily clad...buuuuutttt, I want them to learn at a young age what is modest and immodest, etc.
Anyhow, SOOOOO cute are these boys of mine!

Do I say it is from the peer pressure of other kids telling him to do this and he is only 4? NO! He knows better. I am sure there are a combination of reasons for this beahvior. And he is now grounded for the entire week. And the crazy part is, there were kids with him and he was having a great time (at a friends house, I was not there) So WHY did he make this choice that will cost us yet again more money? I do not know. It did not break the window, thank heavens. But it scratched it and needs to be fixed. That kid. Seriously! SERIOUSLY! I just need to get into the mind of this kid and figure out how his brain operates so I know what triggers him to want to do these certain things! Until then, I am just trying not to think about the next time he does something that will cost us a fortune. SIGH.

I get out of the shower and get him dressed. Then I go downstairs and clean up pee from the carpet. Gee thanks boys. So that wasn't necessarily Keaton being super naughty because his brother did the dirty work- HOWEVER, Keaton throws the biggest tantrums ever for just about everything now.
Now, the good news is that I have learned from my mistakes of the last two boys and know now to ignore the tantrums, not give in, etc. This is helpful and already Keaton is learning that he can't get his way just for throwing a fit. but it doesn't make the fit any more pleasant to deal with. I think what has bummed me out more than anything is that he has decided to cut off literally an entire hour from his naps. Now, I WAS spoiled with his 3 hour naps every day. So 2 hours is still a great nap, but I was just so used to the three hours. And with the shortage in nap time, he is taking longer to fall asleep as well. So he is going down later and later and then sleeping later than he used to even with the less hour and therefore isn't ready for the bed at 8 with the other boys. Instead he chills with Cort and me for another hour. I DO NOT LIKE THAT ONE BIT. I want him to go to bed with his brothers.
So do I wake him up from his naps? I just don't know what to do, but I am thinking this can't last too long cause 9pm is too late for his little tushy to be in bed!
So there you go, thats my gripe for today. ;)
Happy Happy Birthday to my sweey hubby! XOXOXOXO
