My Comedy of Errors

I haven't blogged in about 3 weeks. First I was on a wonderful amazing vacation! Then I came home and life hit hard and fast. I have been home for over a week now but we have dealt with head colds, fixed the AC, still dealing with a mysterious rash on my youngest, working on figuring out why children suddenly think sleep is not for them, helped my brother-in-law out while he was in the middle of a move, had company, having more company, my husband has returned to work and the issues they have there.... the list goes on. But rather than bore you with a list of why I haven't blogged I am just going to tell you about my morning.

My Comedy of Errors:

The past 2 nights I have had insomnia for some bizarre reason. After falling asleep around 1 am this morning Zizzy woke at 6am. I could barely keep my eyes open! Zizzy fell asleep on top of me around 7:30 or 8 only to have Dede wake up coughing. Dede's coughing woke Zizzy with a start and she started screaming, "I WANT DONUTS! I WANT DONUTS!" I replied, "I am sorry but I don't have any." That was received with screaming and wailing. I watch as the minutes slowly ticked by thinking, "My father in law is going to be here any minutes I HAVE TO GET DRESSED!" Sure enough before I had clothes on I saw his car pull in. I had layed out clothes the night before so I would not be caught unprepared as I have so many times in the past. Since the curtains were closed in the living room I quickly started changing. Tom walk in and raised his eye brows I said, "NOT ONE WORD!" My father in law dropped of my vegetables and left after a brief visit.

Tom left for work and I started preparing for our company tonight. Zizzy scaled the bathroom counter and started playing in the sink. I heard the water running but figured it would be ok to deal with that in a minute.... I was wrong.... a second later I heard the water overflowing and Zizzy screaming. I ran in to discover she dropped a cap into the sink just perfectly to completely clog the sink. I tried to pull the cap out but only succeeded in pushing the cap further down and thus making a bad situation worse. I called Tom.

While on the phone explaining the situation to Tom Zizzy starts yelling in the background, "I POOPING! I POOPING!" I reassure her I will change her diaper in a minute only to discover that in an attempt to poop in the potty she took her diaper off mid poop and was now covered. I quickly hung up on Tom and ran to clean up my child.

Once Zizzy was cleaned up I attempted to change Dede out of one of the Tutu's she now lives in so that we could go to the grocery store and pick up supplies for tonight's company. Dede did not think that was a good idea or necessary. As I am fighting her Zizzy slips into Tom's office and gets into his fountain pens and is now covered in ink.

sigh..... Thank goodness for nap time!
