my day

Well it has just been one thing after another today. I don't know if my day was crazy because I worked last night or what. I'll hit the highlights and not bore you with all the details.

Ryan had a late shift and for some reason when he is home I don't get nearly as much done as I would like. So this afternoon he went up stairs and I went to start a load of laundry. Remington got home from school and Coleton came to tell me that "Dad wants the washer off" oh turns out he was in the shower not watching TV oops. I turned off the machine which was full of water and went upstairs to help Remington get started on his homework. A few minutes later Coleton comes up the stairs DRENCHED!!!! Turns out he decided to climb in the washer. I'm glad he climbed in feet first and not head first and that the washer wasn't running. I got him into some dry clothes and went about my business.

Later I took the boys to Maceys to get some candy for Remington to take to school tomorrow. They are making gingerbread houses and asked each student to bring some candy to share. So we headed to the bulk candy. MISTAKE they were picking candy out of the bins and eating it. They were picking candy off the floor and eating it. OK really it was more Coleton than the others but I can't keep up with him. Next we headed to the baking aisle so I could get some powdered sugar to make icing for the ginger bread houses. Remington started licking off the sugar that had spilled out of the bags and onto the shelves. Of course Coleton preceded to do the same. I was at whits end and ready to put them to bed. I am so glad that Gage is mellow and watches it all happen. I'm sure it wont last long though.

We happened to see one of Remington's friends from school and Coleton tackled him to the ground in a giant bear hug. We got to the check out and then Remington is begging for a treat (I just bought bags of treats) and the next thing I know Coleton is climbing up the cart and jumping onto the belt saying "buy me mommy" "no thanks I'll let some one else buy you".
I'm sure that the whole store was glad when we left.

It is becoming clear to me that I can't ever leave my house. however the madness is just as bad here as it is in public & I'm out numbered. Today is a day that I have to say to myself... I wanted kids, I wanted kids, I wanted kids!

I really do LOVE my boys they crack me up and melt my heart! I would be incomplete withput them!
