Oh joy

I think all four of us are in varying phases of “under the weather.” Both kids are super snotty and have a low appetite. Aaron and I have a headache thing going on and Aaron’s got sneezing to go with it. Really? On Easter weekend??

Sighs. It’s ridiculous. and poor Phoebe is pitiful when I have to suction her nose…Patrick is actually letting me clean out his nose. The weather needs to stop being wishy-washy and get it’s act together. Our little family is suffering from the indecisive weather, I believe.

From dinner last night…

He ate all the salad, none of the carrots, all but one piece of the chicken and most of his couscous!

It was pretty good considering I didn’t want to cook and just made myself get chicken out to thaw and then made myself make a meal out of it.

Do you ever

Have days where you question your ability to parent because of how horrible your child is acting?

I’m right there. He doesn’t listen to anything I say. He deliberately does things I ask him not to do. He drove a car over his sister. He nearly broke her swing. His room is wrecked.

I feel like a total failure as a parent today. I need chocolate. Or really bad sweets. I’m settling for Greek yogurt because apparently we have nothing else sweet easily available in the house.

I just want to cry. I’m so praying it’s his age and that I’m not totally inept. Cause sure feeling that way right now.

My brother snapped this of us earlier tonight. 

You can tell I’m not getting enough sleep, but she looks so content and I remember it’s all worth it!

All the poop

…is at my house today. You may THINK you have the poop…but you don’t. Between Patrick and Phoebe, we have all the poop covered here. =/

Man, I can’t wait for Aaron to come home and do some poopy diapers…of course they probably won’t poop while he is home. They like to poop for me. =/

This boy…it’s like he knew half my bed was empty because he woke up and wasn’t happy until I plunked him down in my bed. He promptly rolled over and passed out. 

Sighs. He’s waking up at night has to stop. But for now…at least he’s cute and still asleep.

Today has been a day

I considered a long post explaining it all, but I’m sure it would come across as me being overly sensitive, getting upset at things beyond anyone’s control, and complaining about things people have to deal with everyday.

But today won. Today won hard. And I don’t get cuddles or sex because Aaron is out of town. We barely have enough chocolate to cover the tip of the iceberg.
I just want to finish the dishes and go to bed early. Hopefully our washer gets fixed tomorrow.

I was a day late taking the picture, but Phoebe turned ONE MONTH OLD yesterday!!! I can’t believe it!

The second picture is Patrick at One month old on the frog…for comparison of my babies sizes when they were both the same age.

And a little comparison…Patrick and Phoebe, today, both on the frog. =D 

Everyone was right

Recruiting sucks.

What genius in the Army thought my introverted, computer geek husband would be a good recruiter?

I hate this place. Tiny Army is the biggest joke ever. 

I hate how it makes my husband feel. Like he’s a failure because he isn’t outgoing and isn’t willing to be a slimy used car salesman to get people to join.

Is it 2016 yet?

He got hot so I took his PJs off and he continued to walk around the house in my shoes…

I snapped this gem when he paused for TV… looks like he’s working on his parade rest!
