Oh my goodness, it has been a day full of mayhem! Let's see. . . It started out at 4 a.m. when Kyle wet his bed. I'll admit, I changed him and then had him crawl into bed with us. I just wasn't in the mood to change sheets at 4 a.m., and I certainly didn't want to run the risk of waking up the other two.
I managed to bake 4 delicious pies for my mom. This sounds like hard work, but I used store bought pie crusts so it really wasn't anymore than just throwing the ingredients together and pouring them into the pie crust. While doing so I managed to spill half a box of baking soda on the floor, and one of my pies overflowed in the oven and made my house smell like burnt food. The clean-up took more time than the time it took me to mix the ingredients and put them in the oven. But, by golly, mom is going to have some yummy pie to share! (my husband is pretty jealous that I didn't make one for him.)
The boys and I enjoyed a yummy lunch of turkey and cheese on bagel sandwiches with homemade applesauce. You other mom's can relate to the whole toddler learning to feed themselves stage. Caleb is right in the thick of it and he decided to use the applesauce as hair gel. I did try to wash it out with a washcloth. That didn't really work, but it actually looks pretty all gelled and curly, even if it's a bit sticky! :)
Then, for the cherry on top, Megan's bus driver didn't have a good report to give me when he dropped Megan off after school today. We've had issues with her riding the bus from the very beginning of the school year. She wants to jump up and down and run from seat to seat. I can tell her bus driver has had it up to his eyeballs with her. And well, frankly, so have I. I'm tired of having to discipline her right when she comes home so often. I so want her coming home from school to be a happy time. I think I may have to make a phone call to the school. According to her IEP (individual education program) she was supposed to be on a bus with a monitor and seat belted in, but for some reason that didn't happen. I thought we'd see if the regular bus would work out, but it really hasn't worked out.
Thank goodness it's Wednesday! Megan and Kyle are at Awana for a couple of hours, and Tom is keeping Caleb occupied so I have a few minutes to recuperate from my crazy day. Now I'm going to go soothe my frazzled self by working on the hat I'm knitting for Kyle.
