No Kids Allowed

I got a call from the daycare to come pick up my sick child, which the way, has been fine all afternoon. I pick up both the munchkins around nap time so we got home and they wanted to take a bath. Well, no problem, I thought easier to get them to sleep. No, it did not work out that way, it has a big battle of Mom vs the Munchkins and mom lost. I laid down with the youngest and then it was a battle with the oldest one. So, I sent one downstairs and the other to my room. I was cooking and cleaning and trying to use the afternoon productively and then I notice that my oldest was not laying down on the couch, but had went upstairs. And, about that time the Munchkins came downstairs with a painting for me and covered in green paint. As a mom, I was totally excited, but then reality and oh man what did they paint this time set in. I ran up to my little craft area where I store my craft stuff and what do you know, no paint anywhere. I was really excited until I walked pass their room. They had been painting in their room and not only had they painted each other they painted the carpet of their room…..GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! So, the last time they did is I just sink in a pit of despair. However this time, I was armed with the fear dance and my button and controling my reactions and so on and so on. I did not throw a complete fit deciding it is probably not going to be the worst thing they ever do and this is water base paint so let see if I can get it out. I have to say, with the carpet cleaner and my homemade all purpose cleaner and the carpet looks amazing.

So, the new rule is: No kids allowed in Mom’s room, bathroom, and closet.

Broke the bed

God has a sense of humor that He shared with me last night.  As I was getting into bed, it broke, and it has broken before it was pretty easy and quick fix, but not last night.  So where, I am at midnight tearing apart my bed, bragging out my drill, hammer, screws, and books.  The issue was that the railing had come apart from the headboard and also new last night the board that holds the mattress in the railing detached from the railing.  Now, I am not a carpenter and craftwoman, but I jimmy rigged it to work with the help of my munchkins who had woken up with the breaking for the bed. I am sure my neighbor hear all about it, but I am proud to say that I did not belly ache about it and at one point, I had misplaced an important clip.  Generally, this would be where I were start throwing a fit, but I did not and my silver lining is sharing my embarrassing moment with the world. So, at 2:18 am central standard time, I found myself laying on my box springs testing my bed to see if it would hold and so far so good.  I had, however, sleep on the oppose side of the bed so we will see.
