Unfortunately, no mixed drinks will be served, unless you count Ovaltine mixed with skim milk.
Yesterday was a pretty awful day. Really, it was worse then when I had to have both my wisdom teeth pulled and a root canal on the same day. Really.
The day started off with me taking Victoria for a speech/feeding evaluation. After two hours, I was almost in tears. They assessed her at a 2 month old level. They said she would have to have all kinds of therapy many times a week. I began to feel panicky. They said I had to get her to eat five times a day. They said she must eat a variety of foods with lots of different textures and that she should be talking by now. I told them the child just realized that she could stick out her tongue last week. Could we give the kid a little time?
The day got much better after that. Elliot kept tormenting Anastasia so she threw some water on him. Unfortunately, she also threw the bowl, which shattered into a million shards of glass. Elliot somehow got a sharp piece in his foot. Blood was everywhere.
Francesca started to shriek. Victoria started to cry. Catherine was screaming that she wanted some lip gloss.
Isabella pitched a fit about the dinner I was serving. She wailed like a drowning rabbit.
Wait. Don't I have six kids? Where did this other one come from?
I considered giving everyone shots of Benadryl.
The doorbell rang. My neighbor told me that someone left our gate open, so now my three dogs were running wildly around the neighborhood.
Catherine screamed again about her desperate need for lip gloss.
Two minutes later, Anatasia slipped while holding her plate of food and broke another dish.
I was busy having an out of body experience, dreaming of Mint Milano cookies.
An hour later, the bathroom flooded when "nobody" forgot to turn off the faucet in the bathroom sink. The sink which is also clogged. 200 towels were used in the clean-up.
The highlight of my day was when I got to collect a stool sample from Francesca for parasites.
I made a midnight run to CVS for some cookies and they were out of Milanos!!!
I can hardly wait for tomorrow.
Please share your nightmare stories. No one likes to whine alone!
