I am leaving for Mexico. I felt I owe you an explanation as to why. Two children in bed with us last night edging us out onto the floor, same as the night before. 3 poopy diapers that smell like death before 11 a.m. One trip to Walgreens in my pajamas to buy tylenol for one of our feverish daughters. 1 poopy dog, 1 set of poopy underwear, legs, toilet, floor from Addison who tried to get Layla to help her and not tell mom, 1 call from school wondering why I haven't called to tell them about Layla, another call from the school to tell me that Izzy is complaining of headache and has a slight fever, 1 boy with snot down to his toes every other second, crying incessantly from his poor teething mouth, one mom with swollen tonsils, 50 requests for lunch (from only one person) as soon as she finished breakfast, one split lip gushing blood...... wait...... Donovan just looked over and smiled and reminded me why I'll stick it out for another hour or so. Oh, now Addison came over to me buck naked and told me I need a squirt (hand sanitizer of course, she feels it is her duty to keep everyone sanitized every day) and says she will look so "coot" in this skirt. I can only promise to stick it out another hour.


  1. Sounds like you should stop over in Denver and pick me up! :) Will be praying that the day ends on a better note. We will also be praying that everyone gets better soon; for the sake of your sanity!

  2. Just as far as Mexico? How about the south of France and you "lose" your passport? Sheesh! What a day!

  3. Oi is right!!! Wowza, what a doozie of a day!!! Sounds like the kind of day that SHOULD be followed by a relaxing girls evening ;-) *sigh* If only we lived closer to each other!!
