Sometimes, my life seems so hectic and overwhelming. Everything is so hard!! As I type this Faith is asking for juice. - Not so hard, but it made me get up out of this chair and I just want to sit and relax before I have to start dinner. I took the kids to the grocery store to pick up a few things. We are having sloppy joes and we needed buns. It takes a good 15 minutes it seems to get the kids ready to get out the door. (now Faith is in my lap) Then I open the door and they all run away!!!! I don't like to yell in public or in front of people. (but I will) I feel like my neighbors are all in their windows staring at the crazy frazzled woman yelling like a maniac and chasing these little toddlers who are laughing at me and running in separate directions. When we get to the store, both Brandon and Faith are saying they want to walk. Daddy spoiled them a couple of times by letting them walk when we went shopping together. Now they never want to get into a shopping cart or a stroller. I demanded Brandon get into the cart and he screamed and fought me. Faith is usually pretty good about staying with us so I don't worry as much about her running away. I push around a crying boy while Zach and Faith walk together. Brandon calmed down but was still asking if he could walk. I reasoned with him. I told him he has to be good or he will get back in. He was good and stayed with me!! Even held on to my finger. :) YAY!! I was going to get through this short trip without a scene. Then Zach shows Faith the water fountains. Well, she didn't want to leave the water fountains. We got her away and went on to the bread aisle. The bread aisle is across from the magazine aisle. Brandon found a big Thomas book and got all excited. Faith then turned around and ran away!! I yelled out her name, told her to come back but she kept on going. She ran back to the water fountains. The other shoppers watched us as they always do. We seem to be a traveling circus act around here. I carried Faith back and put her in the cart. She was mad and starting throwing my groceries on the floor. SIGH! Honestly, this little story is nothing compared to past shopping trips. Brandon has thrown jars of sauce or jelly on the floor. I have dealt with many public loud temper tantrums. Today was actually not so bad! It is just how I am feeling that makes it different. I am less than patient today. Oh - B & F haven't napped in the last 3 days.. I am scared the end of nap time is here. I napped from 9 to noon today while Scott was with them. Thank goodness!! However, Scott has errands to run tomorrow so I really need them to take their nap so I can get some sleep.
Well it was nice to sit here and blog for a bit. Time to get up and cook dinner! 2 more nights of work before my weekend:)
