It's a golden, mellow morning here at Three Kid Circus. I've got 700 things to accomplish, but I have spring fever and all I really want to do is run around in circles laller laller lallering.
Can you imagine having me as a mother? Poor kids.
I can already tell it's going to be one of those days. We got up late (6:30! Wooo!) and since we're all grumps in the morning, it took forever to get going. We didn't get to walk to school, despite my insisting to my friend Kim that "I'm totally walking, every morning. I'm just going to do it!" I should have consulted my kids first.
Of course it doesn't help matters that I stayed up late watching Texas Ranch House. Or, ahem, Sexist Ranch House. I think there is something wrong with me, because I cancelled my season pass to 24 in order to record TRH. Look at me, throwing down the abbreviations! I'm like, INTO IT. I loved it when the mom said "Hey, this was my idea, and I'm learning that it's not all about me!" I haven't watched 24, anyway, except for the first 3 episodes, and then I got sort of busy with other stuff and kept forgetting to watch it on TiVo, and all of a sudden I was 10 hours behind. No recovering from that, unless I'm going to spend an entire weekend on the couch, with my children out of viewing range.
(Note to self - this is actually an excellent idea. Build child-kennel in yard by Friday.)
I'm trying to stay optimistic about the potty training situation. Sure, I've changed three pairs of wet panties so far this morning, but the day is long, and I have many pairs of panties.
"Mommy! I have something to tell you!" My daughter just walked into the kitchen looking sheepish.
"I went peeps!"
"In the potty!"
"No. On the floor!"
Well. At least she's telling me. And thank you Pergo. Another successful day of mothering already being written in the history books!
You want to know something that cracks me up, every time I see it? On the back of The Fat Fallacy book , it says FAT IS NOT THE ENEMY! in big old red letters. I so want that on a shirt.
Anyhoo...I'm still waiting to hear on my actual launch date from ClubMom (if you haven't signed up yet - It's free and you earn stuff!), but the diet is going well so far. One whole day! I'm still on it! You'll have to wait until the actual blog launches before you get the gory details of my exercise and eating and all that jazz. I know. You're holding your breath. (People, I danced along with The Wiggles for my workout yesterday - you don't want to miss reading about that. Trust me.)
