AHH! Can I do this?! Can I handle 3 kids all at the SAME time?! I am feeling a bit overwhelmed right now by just 2:( I was hoping for a better day today and it pretty much wasn’t. Same issues with both kids. Jadon just seems to try to do whatever he wants to and I’m trying to teach him to obey me and well, today didn’t feel like a success. Plus now he’s breakin’ out the “water works” every time he doesn’t get his way. What is that? He’s never been so emotional before, I don’t know. It’ll not all bad with both of them all the time, but today left me feeling like I need a vacation. My spa day on May 15th can’t get here fast enough!
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! Last day of the week and date night! Thankfully, my kids do seem better behaved at my parents then they do with me:) We are going to a late dinner with our besties Tyler and Krista Leuning. It really is so great to have them around! Another young married couple to relate to and share things with. Love it!
So my doctor’s appointment today went pretty well. I felt like a good mom because I packed snacks for the kids and myself to take since I knew the total appointment was going to take at least an hour. We went into the ultrasound first and the lady doing it was impatient and rushed. I hate that because when the techs are like that, they don’t really care that you are spending money for the ultrasound and to see your baby, all they care about is getting you in and out. Very irritating. Of course, Baby was not cooperating either. Baby is now head down and was facing my back so pictures especially of the face were impossible to get. I offered to lay on my side so that maybe the Baby would roll to the side but she just rolled her eyes and said, “It’s okay, maybe next time.” Grrrr….. My consult afterwards went well, seems my cervix is just fine, no opening or shortening despite all the contractions I’ve been having which is truly miraculous! Of course it makes me a little worried though that they won’t do anything later when they are actually supposed to. I am just relieved that I don’t need meds right now! Those meds are not fun. All in all the appointment went well and for that I am thankful:)
Well, I know today was not great as far as dealings with the kiddos, but I still remain optimistic that tomorrow will be great. The nice thing is that I know my kids, I know they are sweet, caring and loving. So when they have bad days like yesterday and today, I just remind myself that we all have “bad days” and that I know who they really are. This optimism must be a gift to Mothers from God:)
Till Next Time,
