I am starting to lose my mind. My children are crazy. CRAZY! They are driving me insane right now.
Sammy is too energetic. She does not stop moving, ever. Not ever. She runs all over the place, at meal times she can’t sit still so she’s constantly sliding on and off her chair. Even when she sits on the toilet she twitches her legs. Plus, she’s loud. She talks loud, she walks loud, and she whistles. All the time. But she doesn’t know how to whistle so she just makes this high pitched woo, woo, woo noise. I’ll be in the kitchen, feeding the other two when Sammy dashes off (because she can’t sit still) and then I’ll hear, woo woo, woo. Then woo, woo, woo. Then again, woo, woo, woo. Finally I’ll tell her to stop because she’s giving me a headache. That’s when she’ll tell me to come wipe her butt because she went potty. Yes, she whistles for me. I keep forgetting that she’s whistling and not just making an annoying noise for no reason. Since she doesn’t nap anymore (why, oh, why was nap time taken away from me?), she starts moving and making noise at 7 am and doesn’t stop until 8 pm. It’s exhausting.
Ella is two. Enough said. (But I’m going to say more. Screw you Write Tight guy.) She’s crazy. She throws temper tantrums over everything. Then, she’s laughing maniacally at her own jokes that no one gets. Heaven forbid Sammy laughs at one of them, because then she just keeps saying it over and over again. It takes 30 minutes to get her down for her nap or bedtime. Thirty minutes of her calling me back in for water, for more water even though her cup is full, to sing a song, tell a story, and generally fight about it. I know, you say, just ignore her. Problem being if I ignore her she wakes up Penny. Then I have a screaming toddler and a crying baby. When I go in and say, no, she says, “But, yeah.” I hate that.
Penny is also crazy. She is 7 1/2 months old and 20 pounds, yet she insists on getting up 3-4 times a night (between 11 pm and 6 am) to eat. Don’t tell me you can’t make it through the night. That’s a bunch of malarky. I have two older kids, I know you can do it. (Please, for Mommy?) I just want to sleep for 6 hours straight. And, she puts everything in her mouth. I know she’s a baby and they do that, but there are two young children in the house. They drop a lot of crap on the floor. She has had Goldfish crackers already because of that. Plus, a whole lot of dirt and grass.
So if you see me around and my hair is looking a little funky, it’s because I’ve been pulling it out in clumps. Arghh!
