I need a bloody mary!

It has been one of those nights!  I am about to pull ALL of my hair out!  The phone won't quit ringing, the TV is too loud, and this one is seeing how much trouble she can get in to! 

(Missy, thanks for the email.  Can you tell Ellie is into your daughter's bracelets and microphone?) 
and THIS one thinks she needs to ride my leg at all times!  
I think I may be getting a little sampling of what the next year is going to be like for me... with TWO up and at em!  

Calgon, take me away!  

We will talk again tomorrow!  Mo

Don't worry, I'll take one of them off of your hands. And I'll be nice and let you choose which one. Ha! Just kidding. I really do envy you with those two sweet babies though. Let me tell you, just blink and they will be grown. I know you are enjoying this time with them. Sometimes you really can get too much of a good thing. :o)

Hang in there....I had 3 in 3 years and it was CRAZY for a few years but I wouldn't trade it for anything now. In fact, they are so close that they sleep in the same room every night (by choice) so they can talk before they go to sleep. Don't get me wrong, they fight and argue constantly but when the goin' gets tough they're stickin' together.

I do remember how CONSTANT it is and how tired I was. I do wish I could go back in time and not spend all that time worrying about cleaning and laundry. It waits!!

So, yes, drink the bloody mary and enjoy those babies :)

Your girls are going to be great friends and you will be so proud!!

You are such a great mom and those little girls are so blessed to have such a wonderful family.

Tell Todd the Bod to take care of those girlies and you go take a nice hot bubble bath with a bloody mary!!!

Thanks so much for the note. Yes, St. Louis, MO and I will be there next week, actually. So you better let me know when you are there! I will be needing a familiar face, I'm sure. Hook me up with some friends;)

I know what you mean about the craziness. I'm here alone and need a drink;) Just get ready for when your house is done. Packing S-U-C-K-S. That is all I have to say about that!

Go to bed, girl, and get some shut eye! It's gonna get lots busier with those two, but lots more fun, too!

Mindy said...

We all have those nights!!! Make that bloody mary!

Everyone needs a bloody mary now and then! On the craziest days with my 4 (all 7 years and younger!), I just sit back and laugh about the insanity that is my life! That's all you can do! And all 4 of mine like to be bad at the same time...usually as soon as the phone rings or someone comes to the door. You'll look back and LOVE those crazy, pulling all your hair out moments! Those are the times I miss the most when I am in the hospital with Cooper and away from the rest of my crew! Your girls are gorgeous as ever!!

I have been a lurker for years (way before Mojoy). I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your precious family with all of us. You are truly a blessing to so many. As far as the crazy times go, enjoy. My babies are 20, 18 and 14. I would give anything to have just one more of those crazy, pull your hair out nights. We still do, I guess, but it is for entirely different reasons. Problems were so much easier to solve when they were seven, five and one. All I can say is ENJOY. It all passes far to fast. And as the song says, "your gonna miss this"!

I totally hear you. I was almost in tears by 8:30 last night. I think there was something in the air making kids act HORRIBLE!!
However, they did sleep really well. :)

I know this doesn't make anything better BUT....this too shall pass. Also, like others have said, and I know it's hard to understand BUT....enjoy these crazy times. When they're older the problems are SO much harder to solve. I have EIGHT grandchildren and I'm lovin' watching my children experience the crazy times. Just the other day my daughter said to me about her 5 year old daughter "this child is going to be the death of me." I just rolled my eyes, smiled and said, this too shall pass.

Sue said...

It will pass and then you will be like me and miss those times so much. However, then I enjoy my daughter saying "I was never that bad on worst day" and just kind of chuckling. Enjoy a bloody mary or two and know the future is coming and you will miss those years.

Girl, just wait until you have two teenage girls! Wait, three with Maddi Boo. There will NEVER be a dull moment. And this is coming from a woman who has ONE 19 year old son. I ain't got these white hairs for nothin'! Run, Mo, run! LOL

Missy said...

lolol, I just had to send those pics to you..had to!! Now you see why everytime you post with pics of Miss Ellie with all her bling I laugh. BECAUSE that is what I live with, times two!! BUT at the same time I wouldn't trade it.
I wish I could take E off your hands to play with my girls for a bit. They would love to have a little friend and you could get some stuff done....hang in there, we all have those days, weeks, months...take a hot soak, alone!
