It is 9:18 a.m. I have been up for 3 hours already. It started off fairly well and typical.
6:15 Crawl out of bed, stagger downstairs, begin cleaning the kitchen I was too tired to deal with last night. Turn on Pandora to Veggie Tale praise songs.
6:30 Wake up Jr. High students. The boy has a migraine. Give him meds, water, send back to bed for a few minutes to see if it helps. Girl needs a shower. Continue cleaning.
6:45 Wake up Elementary kids, because they didn't finish their homework last night. Continue cleaning.
7:15 Try and get Jr. High boy up and moving. No Go still migraining. Give Jr. High girl 15 minute warning. Still cleaning.
7:30 Jr. High girl, "What are you doing!?! GO! GO! GO! You should be ready by now!" dishwasher is going now. Move onto the old time popcorn machine that has been on the counter for a week and a half. When was the last time this thing was cleaned anyways?
7:45 Help elementary girl with homework, scrub popcorn maker, remind boys to get ready.
8:00 Elementary girl needs shower. Screams down the stairs that someone did something gross in the toilet and it is NASTY. Tell her to use my bathroom then. Not looking forward to kids bathroom duty.
8:10 Gag at gross mess left in kids bathroom. Scream about how they will have to start cleaning the toilet with toothbrushes if this continues. (The Mommasauras Rex is beginning to rear its ugly head.)
8:15 Kids yell from downstairs that their baby brother smells like he pooped his pants. Mommasauras growls. Run tub, get said smelly boy in tub.
8:20 Tell older elementary son to put on socks and shoes as I come down the stairs. He says he doesn't know where they are. Mommasauras Rex ROARS that they are in the same place he has found socks for the last three days, why can't he just look? Why does he have to fight about everything?! Mommasauras Rex growls as she changes kindergarten boy who wants to wear the same clothes he wore yesterday.
8:25 Go upstairs and get the now smelly good boy out of tub. Growl as he complains about what he is wearing. "JUST PUT THEM ON!!!!!"
8:30 Roar about how the house looks, the grossness of the toilet, growl about toothbrushes and cleaning said toilet again. ROAR ROAR ROAR
8:35 Leave for school with neighbor kids whose Mom also looks like she has had a Mommasauras Rex morning. Roar at neighbor kids when they don't listen to their Mommasauras.
8:55 Come home.
9:00 Get on facebook. Vent. Calm.
9:15 Blog about the Roars. Hope the day gets better.
9:40 Get off the computer and start over a little less dinosaurish.
