Little Miss Sunshine, Little Miss Giggles, and Mr. Messy


You know how animals can smell fear? Children can smell that you are going to have a busy day and things need to go smoothly in the morning so everyone can get where they need to go on time.... So this is when they choose to be difficult, Let me elaborate...




This morning we needed to get out the door on time to take the dog to the kennel, for a little weekend trip we are taking to the snow, since we have none here. I had an appointment at 10am, and I needed to get gas, fill a prescription, pack our overnight bags, feed Lila lunch and pick the kids up by 1pm. My kids, they had another plan....

First thing Braydon decides he isn't going to come upstairs for a shower....10minutes later he finally makes it up there after me asking nicely twice and yelling on the third time, his excuse, "Oh, sorry I spaced out." Coming from the guy who wanders his room naked after a shower for no apparent reason other then, He's thinking.

Lila was getting dressed and couldn't button her sweater so she explodes into tears because nobody would help her..I ask her who did she ask? Her response, "nobody,I know nobody would help me." It only gets better from there, I used the wrong color of rubber band for her ponytail, and by they way she did not want a ponytail, she wanted braids....20 minutes of this and I was getting highly annoyed until....


I see Ellie not wearing the sweater I laid out for her, she is wearing a short sleeve shirt and capri's....it's 19 degrees outside.....back into her room for a quick lesson on summer clothes and winter clothes and that it was definitely NOT summer.

I'm still not showered or dressed, the dog is wet from wandering the back yard and I can't find his leash to take to the kennel.

UGH!!! We made it to all of our places on time, the only thing that had to wait until 7:45 pm was my shower....Sorry to those who may have smelled me today.
