I never understood that commercial until I had children.
Anyway, this morning wasn’t much different than any other.
Heres a quick run down:
Up at 6:30AM
Wake up Lil Dom
Fiinally Lil Bill
It’s pretty normal.
Dom in shower,
Anna at table with head down moaning, Charlotte still in bed screaming that’s she’s too tired
Lil Bill always waking with a smile.
The chaos begins!
“CHARLOTTE eat your breakfast
“Billy‘s looking at me.”
“Billy, stop looking at her.”
“She sticking her tongue out.”
“Charlotte stop that eat your breakfast.”
This pattern continues for a few minutes until I start getting annoyed.
“Charlotte are you finished.”
“Then go get ready.”
“No you’re mot. You’re sitting.”
“I am. Just a sec.”
I’m more annoyed. If I hear “Just a sec one more time!”
Now, although I have pretty good control of myself I finally scream:
“CHARLOTTE GET UP!!!!!!”
Now the crying and the “Oh My Gods.”
OMG I can’t find my stockings.
OMG I can’t find my shirt.
OMG I can’t find my blah, blah, blah!!!
“Go brush your teeth and your hair.”
OMG I can’t find the toothpaste
OMG I can’t find the brush
OMG Why is Billy looking at me?
OMG My hair looks too poofy
OMG I can’t find a hair tie
“Charlotte, you’re gonna miss the
OMG Where are my shoes
OMG Where is my backpack.
OMG Where is my lunchbox
OMG Where is my coat.
OMG I have to get something in my room.
“The bus is coming.”
OMG, OMG, OMG,
Out the door she goes and as if she is someone else, she turns to me and says with a smile:
“Goodbye Mom, I love you.”
And as I turn into the beautiful silence and complete serenity of nothingness,
I think to myself:
OMG! She’s nuts!
Have a nice day all of you sympathetic mommy’s.
