joy of LOVE 05: love to hate
So today I found myself rounding up all 3 kids to take to the aquarium solo. When I say solo, what I really mean is, even tho I was going w a friend, I was going without the husband. All morning I felt rushed. I was shouting orders at the kids, brush your teeth, pick up those toys, put your socks on, PICK UP THOSE TOYS, stop fighting, STOP SHOUTING! You get the idea. I hate mornings like this when I am the lone organizer, the lone packer, the lone... breast feeder. Not that I'd like someone else to feed my kid, I'm just saying, some days it can be maddening to round up a small army of tykes unless you have complete & total preparation & organization. Today I had neither of those things. Bottom line, they outnumber me.
The hour & a half car ride to the aquarium was filled w, stop fighting, keep your hands to yourself, share the snacks, your voice is too loud, STOP SHOUTING! Seriously, it's enough to make a person wonder why they would ever try & leave the house. So even tho some days I may hate everything abt trying to get out of the house & trying to have as smooth a journey as possible, I do so love them being able to do & experience as much as they can. I love watching them interact w the world.
