Soooo…. Ummmmm….. Well…… You see……. I forgot to write down the crazy stuff this time around. I know, I know! I was doing so well, too! LOL

So since I forgot I thought I would pick a random day this week and walk you through my day. The day I picked was Monday!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4 am

The Hubby wakes me up. Time to get up and take him, Jacob and Jacob’s friend TJ to work. (We have sort of adopted TJ. He’s been living with us for the past 6 or 7 months.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5:30 am

Back from dropping off the guys. Time to eat breakfast and set out the kids’ school work for the day.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

6:30 am

Call my BFF and talk for a while.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8 am

I start waking the kids up. Well, Joshua has been awake since 5. He likes to get up early and get started on his school work.

Colin starts to have a COMPLETE and TOTAL meltdown!!!!

He doesn’t want to get up.

He doesn’t want to have school!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8:30

Colin is still freaking out. Now he’s major issue is that I asked Joshua to make breakfast. Colin can’t eat breakfast unless *I* make it for him.

SIGH……..

Where’s the Advil Migraine????

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

9 am

Yep. Colin is still throwing a hissy fit.

Heaven help me.

The other Cailey is attempting to start her school work.

Time to remind Deanna to GET OUT OF BED!!!!!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Colin FINALLLLLLY starts to simmer down.

SHEW!!!!!

Can I go back to bed???

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

10 am

Everyone is finally doing their school work!!! WOW!!!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

12 Noon

Time for lunch.

Colin can’t decide what he wants.

No, we are NOT going to McDonald’s.

He still can’t decide. He wants me to name off every single thing we have in the house to eat.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 pm

Everyone has been fed, even Colin.

Time for Cailey and Colin to do their history, geography, science and nature lessons together.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1:05 pm

Colin, put the Lego guy down and listen please.

No, we can’t blow stuff up.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1:10 pm

Colin, I will listen to your dream when I am done reading this part of the book to you.

(And it goes on like this for the next hour and 20 minutes.)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2:30 pm

YIPPPEEEE!!!! The school day is OVER!!! LOL

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2:35 pm

No, Colin. You can’t climb onto the roof.

No, you can’t use the pot I need for supper to put the cat food in.

Yes, you can go out to play.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3 pm

Time to start supper.

Colin’s computer hour starts.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4 pm

Time to pick the guys up from work.

Cailey’s computer hour starts. (It’s great to have older kids that HAVE to babysit. ;))

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5 pm

Time to eat!

Colin doesn’t want what we are having (chili) and wants me to once again name everything we have in the house.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

6 pm

Cailey and Colin fight over the computer even though they have both already had their hour today.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At several times throughout the day I had to fuss at Joshua for teasing the Cs. SIGH……..

 

Now, not everyday is like this, thank goodness!!! But Mondays are almost always awful. TGIF!!!! LOL

 

(And Deanna never wants to get up before 9:30.)

 

Yesterday was a good day. We went shopping. Cailey and Colin needed new shoes and they both got the BRIGHTEST shoes they could find!! LOL  Cailey’s rainbow neon and Colin’s are neon orange and yellow! Completely day glow! 😉

 

 

HAPPY 61st BIRTHDAY to my Dad!!!!
