"Are they triplets?" "No, I found the other one in the parking lot and thought, 'why not?'"

I just want to scream!

The kids get to do it all day so why can’t I?  Lately life here has been a little frustrating.  I’m not sure who it is more frustrating for, them or me?  Lately this is what can be heard in our household…….

I don’t like it Mommy, I don’t like juice, I don’t like milk, I don’t like hamburgers, I don’t like spaghetti, I don’t like turkey, I don’t like naps, I don’t like clothes, I don’t like diapers, I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t likeI don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t likeI don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t likeI don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t likeI don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t likeI don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like I don’t like HEARING I DON’T LIKE!

Honestly, I haven’t heard a sentence this week that hasn’t started with that.  And the tantrums, geez.  If one kid get something that the other two don’t, save us!  Here is comes, the crying, the dropping to the knees in the middle of the aisle in Canadian Tire, laying down face first crying into the dirty floor.  Or refusing to walk while crossing the street after checking the mail because they don’t want to go to the park?  What kid doesn’t want to go to a park to play?  Oh wait, that’s one of my kids who all of a sudden lives in the land of I don’t like.

On a much cuter note here is a conversation I had with Madeline the other day…..

Madeline: Mommy, look what’s in my mouth!
Me: What’s in your mouth?!
Madeline: DIRT!!!

Madeline tried to re live that moment again tonight…however she did not get as much dirt in her mouth this time around.

Dirt!

I let the kids play outside while I was inside making their lunch.  In that time Madeline decided it would be a good idea to eat dirt.  Her tongue was black and she kept saying “yuk” every time she closed her mouth and swallowed.  We tried rinsing but she probably at most of it.

*I* and I had the pleasure of being sang to by Madeline on our way home from my parents place on the weekend.  The other two had passed out and so Maddy seem to think it was a good time to sing “I love to eat apples and banana’s.”

Aidan is turning into quite the chatterbox.  He will tell you at least 1000 times that he sees an airplane unless you stop him by saying that you also see the airplane or that it’s wonderful he sees the airplane.  Madeline likes to tell on her siblings however she does not like to be told on.  She still likes to think that the world and people in it are solely there for her to body slam into.  She is fearless and I think that Maddy will be the first child to get all the big scrapes and boo boos.  Maddy likes to run full tilt, in crocs, arms up in the air, looking in the wrong direction giggling like a crazy girl and loves every second of it.

Tonight the kids and I were outside after dinner, we played with the neighbours for a little while before settling into playing in our own backyard.  As we were coming into the yard, I noticed that there was a bunny chowing down on some dandelions as well as some fallen bird seed.  I couldn’t believe that he sat there even while the evil spawn, I mean my kids, walked into the yard yelling and screaming.  I told the kids to hush as the bunny was having his dinner.  At first they were all quiet and just watched the bunny eat.  I bet for a moment the bunny thought “Hey, these kids are pretty cool just letting me sit here and nibble.”  Well that bunny was  wrong because Maddy started the wild chase first, giggling evil giggles chasing after the bunny.  Good thing bunnies are fast and that our grass is really long which makes for running in crocs difficult!  Seriously, my kids have to wreck a nice moment.  For instance, I was snapping photos here and there of the kids.  For some reason they all decided it was a good idea to get down on the ground and roll around the same way Jersey was.

Then they stopped and were all laying together, so I wanted to take a picture.

At the last possible moment, Madeline puts her arms up and yells “CHEESE!!”  Thanks Maddy.  But I did get this photo right before we called it a night.  Which is what I’m about to do…….

Parenting and adulting is hard. There is no manual. No volume control. No self cleaning house and self refilling fridge. This is my story of navigating through the ups and downs of our crazy-wonderful life.
