We had a fun-filled three-day weekend of family parties, baby blessings, delicious treats, late nights and sporadic naps. I failed to take pictures. I need to be more like Sarah. Today we're paying the price with a holiday hangover. Have you ever had one of those? I'll give you some examples and you can see if you qualify:
1.) Your kids wake up at 6:50am, demanding breakfast "this minute" - Boo's exact words.
2.) While preparing breakfast, you find your two-year-old hiding upstairs eating a bag of Doritos. He's taken to making is own breakfast. I'm not sure which method I like better.
3.) Both kids have already "served time" in timeout before 8am.
4.) Both kids have already been injured before 8am.
5.) Although your kids were exhausted from the weekend, it took them over an hour to calm down and go to sleep last night. Poor Yaks had to actually cry himself to sleep - he was a mess.
6.) You sit up devising ways to put down the dog next door, who kept you up the first half of the night barking. Grrrr.
7.) After attending party after party with free-flowing beverages, your baby wakes up, totally soaked through in the middle of the night. You change him, go back to bed but then...OH! This is fun...YOU cannot fall back to sleep. Awesome.
8.) Everyone needs a nap, but it's not even 9am, so you try to calculate what time would be reasonable to put them all back to bed!
9.) You're still full from yesterday, and your elastic-waisted pajama bottoms are even feeling a little um, snug?
10.) Finally, your child's clothes look like this:
This is Yaks, following our neighborhood 3rd of July party, where he helped himself to the peanut butter chocolate kiss cookies, and licked four chocolate kisses off the cookies, only to return the cookies to the platter. Yes, that means that his mom felt obligated to eat the four "damaged" cookies herself. (see #9)
And these are the same child's Sunday pants, which are a result of mixing water + dirt. My own fault, I admit. Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda rolled the things up before he started pouring himself drinks of water. I've got some soaking to do.
Good times, good times. I wouldn't trade them. I just need a nap sometime today.
