We were there for 3 friggen hours. I had all four kids with me. I brought the diaper bag, but no extra bottles since I didn't think it would take that long. Thankfully, Jackson did well. I ONLY had to carry him around for the last hour to soothe him.
By the time we left, the three older ones were working on my last nerve. We get home and it's lunch time. I inform Jay and Justin that they will NOT be going outside or playing any games until they cleaned their room. I laid down with Jackson at 1 for a nap, Korinne was already napping. I tell the boys that their room had BETTER look better when I get up...or else. The or else was I would take what ever was left on the floor and trash it, no matter what it was.
When I got up at 3, the room DID look a hell of a lot better, so I let it go with a warning. They STILL could not go outside or play games until the room was clean. They fought and argued the whole time, but it was eventually cleaned by 4.
By the time Jimmy came home from work, I was ignoring the kids unless there was blood dripping or a bone broken. That's how bad they pushed me today. All except for Jackson, who's not even a year old and has more demanding needs than a 10, 5, and 3 year old. LOL
I so looked forward to 8 o'clock for bedtime. LOL
