Mother's Day...a disaster of a day
So with that lead in to what life has been like...here is mother's day. I was very excited about it. I have actually been talking to Keith about getting LASIK and really hoping I can persuade him so we agreed on no mother's day gifts. Sad, but worth it if I can convince him. Back to the "day". It was a MASSIVE fight getting Ada ready for church. She screamed at us about breakfast...hair...dress...shoes...I surprised she didn't scream at me for just existing. On that happy note we headed to church. Today Keith's sister Melissa was blessing her baby, but I really wanted to still go to our Sacrament meeting so Ada could sing to me (first time now she is in Primary). Go figure, as soon as they asked the kids to come up and sing she got all snotty and grumpy and refused to go up. Awesome! After our Sacrament meeting we hurried over to the baby blessing. Rue wouldn't stop screaming during their meeting so I spent most of that in the hallway with her in timeout. We had a lunch afterwards in the Ramada behind the church. Girls continues screaming and hitting me. They fought me all through lunch (which if you know my kids...what the heck?) I'm a looser and couldn't take it. I totally broke down and just started crying. Keith's mom saw (so embarrassed that I'm a wimp and broke down) and so sweetly offered to take the kids so I could at least go home and take a nap. Emotionally broken I agreed and felt pathetic that I can't even stand my kids on Mother's day.
We took a nap and got things ready to go out to my family's house for dinner. We picked the kids up on our way out. We took grandma with us and it turned out a wonderful dinner. Kids luckily had cousins and just went off and played. They did manage to scream most of the way home. Great day right? I do love being a mom....right?
