I had a hard time falling asleep last night. It was around 2:30 the last time I looked at the clock. Once I was asleep though I was sound asleep. So sound that I woke up only 10 minutes before my littlest monster needed to be at soccer pictures. As you can imagine, I was in panic mode..."Everyone get dressed, Adam has pictures and we have to leave in 10 minutes!". This caused lots of commotion in our house. The 2 older boys jumped up at the same time and somehow instead of getting dressed and brushing their teeth they began fighting. And not just the "leave me alone", "he touched me", "I was in here first" fighting. They were actually hitting eachother and somehow a dresser was knocked over. All while I was trying to find Adam's soccer shorts! Something about someone's DSi and someone kicking someone else is what ultimately started it. Honestly, I didn't want to hear about the details. All I could think was "What on earth were they thinking?! We have to leave like NOW! and this is what they are doing?! I know boys will be boys but seriously!". I got them settled down and they got dressed (hmmm, I wonder if they brushed their teeth yet). Anywho, they are now grounded from all things fun (ya know, like video games & T.V) and I am officially the meanest Mom on the planet. The good news is that we made it to soccer pictures just in time. Adam's team was half way done with their individual shots when we arrived...whew! We received a "I was worried you wouldn't make it" from Coach and all I could do was smile and say "Sorry, we had a rough morning". HA! If only he knew what had been going on in the last 30 minutes!
You are probably wondering how any of this could make me smile (because it didn't!). Well, after we got home I opened up an e-mail with this picture attached.
My newest nephew wearing the little tie shirt I made him. Isn't he just adorable! Thanks to my sis for sending this to me. I really needed a smile :)
Hope everyone else is having a better day than I am so far!
