Before Noon...

Today I had one of those mornings. 5 years ago a morning like I had today would of had me selling my children online (either separately or in a buy one get one free sort of deal)

My morning:

Tommy comes down with his full of pee pull-up. He went into the potty and I asked him to put his pull up by the front door. He THREW it across the room which actually wouldn't have been a problem except that I bought DEFECTIVE pulllups. All of the insides went flying all over my carpet, I mean everywhere. I had a PEE carpet.

A couple hours later Tommy comes running up the stairs and into the potty. 2 minutes later he comes out and says "Sorry Mommy" I assumed that he had wet his pull-up and I put him in timeout and gave him another pull-up.

Then I went to get Preston a sippy cup ,he starts walking to the living room with his full sippy and drops in on my living room carpet, which wouldn't be a problem except the lid pops off and I have a WHOLE cup of milk soaking into my floor. I start cleaning it up and then suddenly have to go to the bathroom REALLY bad. I RUN into the bathroom and slip and fall in a huge puddle of PEE!!!

Apparently Tommy didn't wet his pull-up (it was sitting there dry) He just couldn't get to the potty AT ALL.

I've calmed down since. I am doing much better now. There was more that happened but this was the worst part. Luckily Adam got home a short time later so that I could go to Paige's Valentine's party. When I got back from her party he had used our neat Carpet cleaner on the living room, so hopefully it will be milk and pee free for a day or so.

Tommy just doesn't want you to be toooo homesick for St. Louis :)

Good point, Kara. But we still hate days like this.

You know, I have to say that a good percentage of my motherhood stories tend to involve pee, poop, spit-up, snot and vomit.

I am no fun to talk to at parties.

I long for the day when we will have wood floors, potty-trained kids, and no more spills. Maybe that will never happen, but I can think it will.

Thanks for the laugh Jen. Sounds like you have a lot of liquid in your life.

Are you sure we can't get new carpet?

Just kidding. I'm sorry your day was so lame and so full off pee.
