Oh, One of THOSE Days

Let's share a few of the highlights of our day.

This morning I had to change the sheets on three of our four beds because of issues during the night with all three of the family members who still wear diapers at night. I should have known it would be one of those days.

Second Son did not take his morning nap. When he doesn't take a morning nap, he doesn't really nap all day. Yes, one of those days.

First Son and I had a conversation about how if we didn't have lessons at home, he'd have to go to school where he wouldn't be able to play with his toys or his sisters all day long, not just during lessons . Did I mention it was one of those days?

Upon discovering her diaper was wet sometime after her nap time began, Second Daughter took it off and tossed it on the floor. Then she went to sleep. Luckily she didn't sleep long before I went in to wake her and didn't wet her bed again. You're beginning to see, aren't you, that it was one of those days?

Driving home from town today, I noticed Second Daughter picking pieces of the Styrofoam (or whatever it is) from under her car seat's cover and putting it in her mouth. I yelled at her to stop (really yelled, because she actually stopped) and then stopped the van to pull all the pieces out of her mouth. When we got back on the road, she started chewing on her sock. It really was one of those days.

I'm almost afraid to post this...because, you see, it's only 9:30 pm and no one has thrown up yet. That would be the most fitting end to this day. Though the dog did throw up a few days ago; maybe that counts.


  1. Ah, now I see why you were nodding in agreement when I said yesterday that I was having "one of those days!"

  2. Yeah, I keep reminding myself it could be worse. It's amazing how all those little things just grind you down during the day, though.

    We're on day three without a good nap for Second Son and I'm on the edge. Hopefully we'll get back on track soon. Thank goodness he's sleeping as well as he does at night!

    I finally started practicing the choir songs with the kids today and I think it's going to make a big difference. Guess I should have done that earlier.

  3. I agree that a night of throwing up is my worst fear at the end of a day like that too. I hope you all slept well after that, and that Second Son's naps get back on track soon. Lack of sleep (day or night) is never a good thing for a baby (or any of us, for that matter).


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
