A Day In the Life

Subtitled- What Happens When Dad Accidentally Wakes A Two Year Old


This morning dh dropped something in the shower a little after 5 AM. That woke little Juju. As I was pulling her out of bed, she woke Joseph. The commotion of those two woke Gabe, who fussed and woke Banana, and it all went downhill from there.


Math books were abandoned by girls rushing to find shoes, brush hair, and gather books to get out the door when their ride was already knocking at the door.

Little ones, whose lack of sleep made them especially mischievous, paid no heed to my childproof lock and broke into the special cabinet filled with the toys Mom holds back for special times (AKA the cabinet of toys Mom h.a.t.e.s to constantly pick up).


There were baby meltdowns...

There were toddler meltdowns...

There were many, many, many timeouts...

Big sigh
In the end, the house looked like this because Mom was too tired to do anything about it.

I LOVE how JuJu is happy to be in timeout. I'm sure you were "loving" it, too. Peace be with you.

I second what Dove said. I think Miss Ju was smiling for the camera!!! :)

And honey, I so know how those days go. Know I'm right there in the trenches with you. Hang in there sweet friend!!!

Hugs and prayers!

Awww....the blog post that when you are older, grayer, and empty nested you will sit down and laugh, cry, and wish for. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. We have to have days like this to really appreciate those days that have no ripples. This is only a blink in time. We are 'adults' so much longer than we are kids. Big Hugs. Big Big Big Hugs for your amazing, glorious, active Big Family.
