I love them dearly but they are driving me crazy

January 18th, 2011

The last couple of days have been crazy. I was already having a bit of cabin fever yesterday (canceled plans due to another sinus infection for Eva) when there was a great nail polish disaster.

I was spending a moment in the bathroom rinsing a diaper when Ella told me she had an accident and spilled nail polish. I knew right away it would be bad. And it was. All over the tile, on their clothes (and I had just put a new outfit on Eva), on Ella’s hands, and on EVA’S HEAD.

I even called Steve down from work. I spent the next hour trying to get it out of Eva’s hair and off her scalp.

So, needless to say, I was pretty happy to go out with a girlfriend for dinner.

And today I decided we are going OUT. To ballet, maybe to Target, maybe out to lunch. Just OUT. For a long time.

Some of it was good, but ballet was very hard to watch with Eva wanting to go up nearby stairs. And Ella did not take it well when I wouldn’t buy her a juice out a vending machine after. Then there was Ella’s urgent potty break that turned into a 20-minute ordeal inside a small dirty Taco Bell all with an unhappy toddler.

So, yeah, it’s been that kind of week. Luckily they have been happily dancing and playing since we’ve been home. Ella has even saved her sister from a few mishaps today. It’s almost making me forget the nail polish stains on her sister’s head. Almost.

    I bet I don’t seem so silly now with my. Plan to burn down my house when the kids get bigger. It’s going to be way beyond “just getting new flooring” by then. May the force be with you.

    I don’t think your plan is silly anymore Sara. I just hope when two houses so close burn down they don’t suspect something. Luckily all my furniture is junky already! Ha!
