Today was school day for the kids, which means I got to do things I normally put off. I worked around the house a bit this morning before heading out to run some errands and do a little shopping for myself. On the way to pick the kids up, I bought a milkshake to share with Sadie. I "needed" just a little something sweet and thought I would take a few sips and leave the rest to surprise her with when she got in the car.
2:00 - I went to my boy's class to pick him up. Along with my active child, I picked up his nap mat and bag. His teacher told me that he had a big dirty diaper and his bottom was really red.
2:02 - Went to Sadie's classroom, but they weren't quite finished with show and tell, and she didn't want to leave. That's fine. You stay there while I chase your brother.
2:04 - I pick up Sadie's stuff out of her box - nap mat, lunch box, backpack. I smelled something. Harrison.
2:05 - Sadie is dismissed. I told her that I could not carry everything and she had to help.
2:06 - I had to park far away, Harrison didn't want to be carried, he's wiggling so much I almost dropped him on the way to the car.
2:08 - Get Harrison into his seat just as he begins to throw a major fit. He kicked off both shoes, pulled off his socks, and was screaming.
2:09 - Sadie gets settled and I give her the milkshake. Sadie is happy, and Harrison stopped crying.
2:10 - on the way home we talked about Sadie's day. She ate all her lunch, she played in the gym, she saw her best friend Candace, all is well.
2:12 - "oh no, Mommy!!" She had poked the straw through the bottom of the cup - milkshake was everywhere. EVERYWHERE! Thankfully we were pulling into our driveway. I grab the cup and it proceeds to drip all over me and my seat.
2:13 - I jump out, grab her, she's crying because she's soaked and cold and sticky. I run her inside and strip her. I hear Harrison screaming in the car.
2:14 - Sadie is naked and crying as I bring Harrison in to change his diaper. Remember how I smelled something earlier?
2:14.5 - Everyone is crying while I'm cleaning Harrison.
2:15 - As I was wrapping up the diaper, he escaped (the boy is FAST). I hear something. He's peeing on the floor.
2:16 - I'm cleaning him AGAIN and putting clothes on him. Sadie is still standing there naked and crying.
2:18 - Harrison is in bed, I put panties on Sadie. Go to get the carseat out of the car.
2:20 - bring in the carseat and a bag of purchases. In my haste, I just dropped the bag on the floor, forgetting about a mug I'd purchased in the bottom of the bag. I have yet to check and see if it is broken. Didn't sound promising when the bag hit the floor.
2:21 - I sat on the couch, let out a sigh, and looked at the clock.
Wow, that was a crazy 20 minutes. Let's hope the rest of the afternoon isn't as exciting.
