Yes, I did have a bad day and I wrote a little song to go with it. Tune to Daniel Powter's Bad Day.


Where is the moment I needed the most
You have 2 babies and the magic is lost
I’ll tell you my blue skies faded to gray
I’ll tell you my passion’s gone away
And I don’t want to carry on

You wake up in the morning and hit a new low
You’re faking a smile with the Cheerios you go
I’ll tell you my life feels way off line
I’m falling to pieces with every whine
And I don’t want to carry on

Because I had a bad day
I’m feeling real down
I sing a primary song to turn it around
Lucy says “NO, NO!”
She tell me lots of lies
I work at a smile and I want to sigh
I had a bad day
The wrinkles don’t lie
I’m getting real old and I really do mind
I had a bad day
I had a bad day

I Love Life ...For Today, Anyway

Sometimes I just go about my day and forget that there is a big world out there. I get so caught up in doing laundry, cleaning this or that, putting Lucy in time-out, that I forget to have fun. Well, I went to the beach on Saturday and Monday and had a great time. Ellie loves to explore the sand and Lucy loves to play in the water. What more could a woman ask for. We are potty training and have had a few "incidents" that I wont go into, (but if you really want to know, email me and I will tell you), but they were pretty funny. I am really glad not many people were around! Life is good and I enjoy getting out and getting sun, it's good for the soul. My goal is to do fun things more often with the girls; dishes, laundry, and time-outs can wait, they are still going to be there when I come home!

I Hit Her

(Now before you go and call CPS on me, read.) Lucy and Ellie have finally started to play together (by play I mean Ellie wants to be near Lucy whenever possible). Lucy doesn't really like to have Ellie around when they are playing because Ellie touches her stuff and Lucy is in time out a lot as she "disciplines" Ellie for it. For the most part I am near and see Lucy doing it, hence the time outs. One day I hear Ellie scream and cry and see Lucy running out of their bedroom (with a guilty face) and I asked her what happened, she said "I hit her". First, I was thrown off because she said a sentence, second, because I understood it, and third, because she told the truth. I didn't know what to do, so I just turned around a walked away (to get Ellie, I'm not too neglectful, this all took place in a matter of seconds). I got some good advice from my mom as I always do, but I would like to know what you would do. She was honest, I wasn't there to see it, I know I should have done something, but what? And what should I do to get Lucy to be nicer to her Ellie?

Potty Training

Who would have thought that this would be soooo hard? I have to say, I don't enjoy it one bit. It always just seems kids one day are in diapers and the next they are in undies. No one told me that I would have to ask her every other minute for who knows how many days about going pee-pee or poo-poo. You know I used to have decent conversations with people, now my day consists of talking about bowel movements. Today we had a little drama about going #2 in the toilet. Lucy was totally freaking out, not wanting to "go" on the toilet. Well, after 30 minutes of her saying, "No pee-pee, poo-poo in toilet" (I wont tell you I saw "it" wanting to come out...gross) I got her to put on a diaper. Well, she lasted all of 2 minutes in the diaper and then told me she wanted to go in the toilet. After she did some of her business came out she got very excited, but then started to cry.....oh,the drama. After more than a half and hour of whining, crying and fighting me about going on the toilet she did it and we did a little dance of joy in the bathroom. OK, maybe I do enjoy some aspects of it....crazy, I know!
