First Day of Spring

Well, officially spring has started! It's about time LOL. As much as I have been looking forward to the start of warm weather here, it hasn't been the best day. It all started off with a bang at 5:30am with Little Man screaming away in his crib. Settled him back down, scream at 6am, settle him back down, scream at 6:30am. I think you get the idea. Finally give up, and bring him downstairs. At this point I notice him tugging on his right ear.... great... I gave him some Advil, and made everyone breakfast. After a half hour or so, he finally started to get happy again.

After dropping Monkey off at school, I called the Dr's office to get Little Man in ASAP. Thankfully she could sneak us in just before 11am. One problem with this, I need to pick Monkey up from school! So, I call up my Mom to get him for me, thank goodness she could do this. In the meantime, off to the playplace for a little fun until it's time to see our Dr. Yah, not so much fun, and no, it was not because of Little Man. Bug decided to have a massive fit (I believe the 3rd of the day, and it was only 10am), so we had to leave. I didn't want to do anything that he might even remotely consider fun, so I parked in my Mom's store parking lot. After 25 minutes he finally says 'Sorry'... 25 minutes of crying, and whining. How could this day get any better???

At 11am I get in to see our Dr, and sure enough Little Man has another ear infection. He hadn't had one for almost 5 months, guess this means that he will definitely be having surgery in May. After getting the prescription, we pick up Monkey from my Mom's store, and head home. I had really been looking forward to having the Nanny over this afternoon... with feeling this sick, I was considering having a nap, or taking Monkey with me to get some seeds to start. Again, things didn't go according to plan. Her little guy (he's 8 months), is sick with a stomach bug of some kind. Totally understandable, but still sucks to be me.

It feels like today has consisted of fit, after fit, after fit. Whining, and screaming, and whining. Monkey, and Bug did not get get any dinner tonight. I asked them to clean all the toys up in the yard before coming in for dinner. They of course just played around, goofed off, you name it. They had been warned that they would not be eating if it was not done by 6pm, which is 30 minutes after dinner is on the table. Sure enough, 6pm roles around, the yard is exactly the same. I had them all in bed by 7pm tonight... well except for Bug. He just will not stay in his room anymore! I have finally (40 minutes ago) locked his door, and can still hear him screaming away. You would think he would have gone to sleep by now.

I do feel a bit bad for doing this, but spending 1 & 1/2 hours putting him back to bed is just not an option. I need my time in the evenings to clean, relax, and get ready for the next day. This is especially vital with Hubby gone so long right now. If he is still going on when I am done here, I will go and talk to him. I just don't know what to do about this night time thing, it really needs to stop for my sanity's sake.

On to gardening. I want to try the upside down tomato planters this year, but don't really want to spend the $20 that they go for. I found this homemade option, that truthfully looks a lot nicer than the other ones anyways! Thankfully I don't need to figure out the drilling part right now, power tools are not really my friends LOL. Hubby will be home before I need these, but I will most likely get the supplies now.

  1. Stopping in from SITS! I also have 3 boys and days like that are tough. It gets a little easier with each passing day. Hang in there.
