Signs it would have been better to just stay in bed...

Your baby wakes you up every hour, on the hour, ALL night long...

You get out of the shower and find your oldest two (not even the younger two) kids cutting up all their baby pictures into ribbons with a pair of scissors; They're the scissors you got out of bed to hide, the night before.

You child spills his cup 15, yes count them 15 times in four hours.

The comment, "lets go for a nature walk and collect leaves," is responded to with, "that's stupid!"

The red things being thrown at the side of your house are your beautiful, perfectly ripe tomatoes that were supposed to be part of supper...

Little hands have stolen and eaten two of the boxes of fruit snacks and 8 of the 11 bananas you bought grocery shopping the night before...

You fall asleep nursing your baby, and no one (even though they know it's time) bothers waking you up to get them to karate on time....

and the most tell tale sign that it would have been a better idea to just stay in bed is:

You're feeding the baby, and you hear your second to youngest screaming, so you run outside in the back yard to see what is happening, only to see that the older two have somehow managed to open the gate to the front yard, ("just to see what is on the other side"-- like they don't know!) and are now practically in the middle of the street clotheslining the toddler to the ground so that he doesn't get hit by a car.... and then they get mad at you for yelling at them 'in public' for opening the gate in the first place when they know it's against the rules.

How was everyone elses day?!?!?!

*hugs* You're going to get through this.

And, hey, on the bright side, this should make tomorrow (or nearly any other day, like, EVER) seem so much better.

Seriously, you're a rock star. If it were me? I think I'd have duct-taped them to the wall starting with the picture-escapade ... and just left them up there all day.
... Well, I'd have been SORELY tempted, CPS be danged. ^_^

I know you can get through this and Allanna said it right. Tomorrow or the next should seem like a piece of cake compared. You are strong. I only hope I could be as Super as you when I have 3-4 kiddos

This is why we have blogs... While it is happening we want to kill children, but when you look back later you can laugh... way later. I remember the day I had that was like that (my worst day ever)... I should probably blog it before I forget.

As for my day... you win. I am sick but, I did some major "to do list" work so I'm feeling fulfilled.

yesterday, now that is another story. Like Allana said, tomorrow you'll be able to say, "yesterday, now that is a story."

Twin, I have to appologise for something in my comment. Cut up baby pictures is not funny... not today or tomorrow. Friend, I'm so sorry.

Sending hugs your way. Good thing there is always tomorrow!! Sometimes its always good to stay inside and have a down day. Movie and popcorn for everyone.. AND remember I bet your VT would love to come sit for a few while you get some needed rest.

I love when other mom's days suck as bad as mine. Thanks for letting me know others are normal as well.
