I have a laundry list of things that I do on a daily basis that I'm not entirely proud of but feel are necessary for my survival. These things include, but are not limited to the following...
- I make the boys carry the extra stinky diapers out into the garage.
- Sometimes, when the kids won't stop pushing a button on a musical book, or if it's a book that I just can't stand reading one more time, I wait until they aren't looking and I drop it behind the couch.
-Since we're talking about the couch, it's not the worst thing if a toy I don't like finds its way under there just far back enough so that it's out of reach.
-In the last few days I have vacuumed up 2 live spiders and a fly.
-Kate has become a serious food dropper, so when she gets fussy and refuses to eat, I get her out of her chair and set her down and she snacks on the food she dropped....on the floor.
-I yell at the kids to clean their rooms constantly even though our is a disaster.
-Once or twice I've run the dishwasher when it's not necessary just to have some noise to dull the sound of the screaming kids.
-I say "go play in the basement" 457,569 times per day.
-My dream come true would be if my kids would turn in to couch potatoes and all veg out and quietly watch tv all day long(ok... so not really but a half our would be pretty great!)
-2 weeks ago I remember telling the kids we were out of milk and giving them juice because I didn't feel like walking out into the garage to get a new carton.
...and my ultimate moment of shame...
-The other day I actually used the phrase "Santa is watching you and he is disgusted with your behavior!"
