I began the morning at the gym--6am comes early but a good way to start the day.
Got home, the usual. Fed the kids and decided to go have a bubble bath because I was freezing from the gym. (1st mistake; what am I thinking taking a bath with a 5, 3, and 1 year old to run wild) I told the kids they could get in after me.
30 seconds of relaxation....ahhh.....pound! pound! pound!
Tobe yells "Me need to go potty!!" I jump out of the bath, open the door, only to find that he had already pooped his pants:)
So here I am naked, dripping water all over the floor, as Tobe runs in with poop in his pants. I make him take off his underwear and throw the turd in the toilet (bare hands and all:) He goes out to get some wipes, comes back in the bathroom and slips on the wet floor smothering poo from his bum all over the floor. He cleans it up.
By now I am done with my bath and the kids are getting in. I finish getting them ready for the day, send them in Jane's room to play for a minute and I call Jenn to cry. I miss my sisters so bad:(
While I am talking to Jenn, Jane undresses them all and gets them in dance clothes to have a "dance party". Would be fine but we had errands to run as soon as I was off the phone.
I get off the phone, get them all dressed..AGAIN..and get them all in the car.
We get to the end of my neighborhood and Tobe yells, "Me need to go potty:)"
(my thoughts: I could continue to the mall and brave the tight bathroom w/ 3 kids or just turn around and go back home--which is what I chose)
False Alarm--he didn't need to go after all:) REALLY TOBE???
We get to the mall. I take care of the things I needed to get done and agree to feed the kids at the mall and then let them play for a minute in the play place.
We get lunch, set it all up, everyone happy--Tobe yells, "Me need to go potty!!"
(my thoughts: Can I leave Jane here to watch Aly?? Hmmm.........NO!!)
I tell Tobe he has to wait until we are all done eating.
We finish eating, some really nice lady offers to throw all my garbage away, and I maneuver my double wide stroller and all 3 kids into the family bathroom:)
Everyone washes their hands and goes potty:)
We go to the play place. 3 minutes into it and Aly poops:)
(my thoughts: Can I leave Jane and Tobe while I go out to the car and get the diapers and wipes and then change her diaper? hmmm........NO!! Aly will just have to sit in it for a while:)
Kids play. Mom sits...ahhh!! 20 mintues into it and Tobe poops his pants...AGAIN!!:)
We gather everyone up, change pants in the car (luckily Aly had pooped so I could put Tobe's turd in her diaper) and head home. I made Tobe ride home without any pants on and he fell asleep.
I leave Tobe in the car, put Aly in her crib, let Jane play on the computer while I finish up some horse show work.
30 minutes pass--Aly is still awake yelling from her crib, Tobe wakes up mad that he has no pants on, and Jane has pooped her pants while playing on the computer:)
I send her to "take care of it", get Tobe some pants, and get Aly out of her crib.
I tell Jane to keep the kids occupied so I could finish the financial statement for the horse show (which is where I worked before coming out here to Indiana). I finish and email it off.
Now it is 4:45 pm. Brett hasn't called me all day so I call him to tell him how my day went:)
I think he packed up and came home because he arrived shortly after the phone call. He comes home and offers to take us to.......
McDonalds:) Yipee!! I don't have to cook dinner, the kids can play, and he will be there to help me.
He drops me off at YW at 7pm and goes home to put the kids to bed.
Hope your day was better than my "crappy" day:)
