Bad Morning

Okay, so I hate the thought that I'm one of THOSE moms that could be yelling at her children, hear the phone ring, and then answer in a sugary sweet "nothing is wrong here" kind of voice. That's just what this morning has been like. Smart Guy left for first service around 7:30 or so. I got up shortly afterwards with plans to leave with all three children at 9:30 and make it to Sunday School this morning. I basically had 1 hour and 45 minutes to get myself and the kids up, dressed, primped, fed, and out the door. No problem, I've done it in much less time than that. But on this particular morning, the cards seemed stack against me. There wasn't anything specific that jumps out at me that caused us to be crazy...well, Prophet spilled milk all over the floor, and oh yah, Bee dumped strawberry applesauce all over the floor, and then there was the lotion incident right before she was supposed to be getting dressed. Have I ever mentioned that Prophet and Bee fight. It drives me crazy. Everything is a competition between. If I ask someone to turn of the tv, they both jump up and run for the button, Bee screaming all the way. If I ask someone to let the dog out, they both jump and run for the door, Bee screaming all the way. In case you've forgotten Prophet is 9 1/2 and Bee is 4. There should be no competition. They argue about everything. The other can never be right. So all morning they fought. I could here them all the way upstairs when they were downstairs. The funny thing is that D.K. usually stays out of all the fighting, which is odd since he's the dramatic one of the three.

So, I decided that as soon as I dropped the kids off in their classrooms, I was heading towards Smart Guys office to be alone during Sunday School. When I got here, he was in here, which he never is during S.S. with two members of the long forgoten SPRC having some kind of chat. Can't wait to here what was so important that after not talking to him or responding to anything for months now, they thought they had to interupt his already busy Sunday morning with a chat!

Girl, We've all been there (with the phone thing). It used to make me nuts when QM did it when I was little, but I do it now. I guess it just wouldn't do to go yelling at unsuspecting telemarketers because your kids are arguing...

Praying for you & Smart Guy.
