I am here...although I don't know if I have arrived. Some days I feel stranded in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, other days I marvel at the paradise that I call my life. Welcome to my ramblings, reflections, and obsessive- compulsive tendencies

...about ten minutes in my life

transcript of sunday morning 8:45am to 8:55am:

(walk in door returning from 5 1/2 mile run)
me:  (unable to talk or really breathe)

darling husband: how was your run, sweetheart?

me: (lungs still in overdrive) um...good...i guess...i did it...that's the big thing.

darling son #1:  (holding nose) EWWW!  MOMMY!  THERE'S POO ON THE FLOOR!  QUINN JUST POOED AND PEED ON THE FLOOR AND IT STINKS!  

(darling son #2 standing in disgusting mess in middle of living room not daring to move.  take off pj pants and run him to the toilet to begin clean-up)

me:  don't worry sweetheart.  accidents happen.  let's try to get to the toilet next time, okay?

darling son #2:  i pooed in the living room, but i didn't poo in the dining room.  that's good, right?

me: (thinking...are you kidding me!)  that's right, honey.  but pee and poo go in the bathroom.

darling son #2:  mommy, you are all sweaty and yucky.  

me: (thinking...i'm the one that's yucky?!?  are you kidding me!)  i am, aren't i.  i just came back from my run.

darling son #1:  mommy, can i go on the computer now?

me:  in just a minute.  let me clean up your brother and then i'm going to quickly check my messages.

darling son #1:  ARGGGGGGHHHH!  you are the worst mom in the world!

darling son #2:  i love you mommy (then looks at older brother with holier than thou attitude)

darling husband:  okay boys, leave mommy alone.

me: (thinking...thank god i don't have to do this parenting thing on my own!)

sounds like a bad day... everything will fall in its place sooner or later, so take it lightly, dear!
