Oh What a Monday

So today I have the perfect morning for my first entry...

The madness of my Monday morning started with my one-year-old daughter climbing up on the dining room table and grabbing her brother's milk. I saw it from where I was standing, about 4 feet slow-motion, as if it were a scene from a movie, she turned the cup to its side and poured the milk all over the table, the chair, and most notably, the carpet.

I usually don't turn on the video this early in the morning, but at that particular moment, I needed Bob and Larry to keep everyone out of the milk...

About 30 minutes later, after I had mopped everything up and started a load of laundry with milk-soaked rags, my two-year-old yelled for help from the bathroom where he was supposed to be washing his hands. I went in to discover that the water to the house had been turned off. When I called the water department, they had no idea why that was, and they promised to send a serviceman to check it out. I have yet to see the serviceman. Two hours later, the water, thankfully, came back on.

A little later on the in morning, my one-year-old climbed the chair again and got to the computer. Before I caught her, she had locked up the computer by opening Internet Explorer about 18 times and broken off the "M" key.

While I was fixing the computer, the two kids started fighting over something, and my two-year-old pushed over the little one. As I sat down to console her, I noticed an odd smell rising from her backside. I turned her over to check her diaper, and as I did, I discovered two things:

1. Yes, I was correct, she was, as we say in our house, "stinky."
2. She had managed to remove her diaper in the process.

I need a vacation.

Tales From Mommyhood

Well, here I am, starting another blog...I haven't even kept the first one up, so we shall see how this one goes. This one will be entirely devoted to the crazy times that happen to me, a full time stay-home mommy.

Some background info. I have a two-year-old named Joshua and a one-year-old named Anna. I also watch a 5 month baby Mon-Fri, 7am-3pm. And yes, that is a lot of diapers. Diapers will be appearing on a regular basis here on Tales From Mommyhood. No one knows more about diapers than I do, I am convinced.

I am a stay-home mom, and I want to make it clear from the beginning that this is because it is what is best for MY family. Every family must do what is best for them, there is no right or wrong on this one. My husband and I prayed and sought the Lord's best for our lives, and this is what we believe He said. We've made some sacrifices in order for me to stay home, but again, that's what was best for us. This whole mommy wars debate is ridiculous and must stop.

So, there's my rant for the day. Stay tuned for some crazy funny stories from the Land of Mommyhood!
