Paisley is determined to drive me to the nut house. Cause why else would she run out in the street on Monday at football practice while I was chasing behind only to miss a huge large scary suburban like car whiz by her. Or just 30 minutes later when I hadn't even stopped shaking for the previous incident ....crawl underneath the bathroom stall I was using (while holding a baby, peeing and trying to keep an eye on my 2 year old) and then run out of the bathroom?
Or just now when I went to the dr. for the upteenth time to complain about not being able to swallow for this body that I have that appears to be rejecting nursing, having five kids, no sleep and a husband who is gone lots...my immune system has called off I think or yes maybe its just the shots I take to suppress it! So after doing the song and dance in the doctors office for an hour, as I am trying to get the mega old awkward stroller out of the elevator while holding ivy (cause yes I had a double stroller and nobody would sit in it!) she makes a mad dash up the stairs that we had just avoided by using the elevator to the floor we were just on right when Baylie goes a different direction so I ditch the stroller and run as best I can holding a 3 month old up the stairs to go fetch her.
good thing she is asleep right now. This is also my reminder that I need to read my scriptures more (or just at all sometimes) because obviously what I'm doing is not working! Cause I sure haven't kept my cool.
Ya that Baylie is on a mission to be as obstinate as well, but we can't talk about that right now cause I'm too mad and have too much laundry and things to do here right now frankly.
right now I'm just reminded of the person who recently told me that this stage of life is a 'piece of cake' and that it compares nothing to having adult children when the real work begins...thanks for making my future look so rosy, can't wait.
don't worry, negative nelly will be gone tomorrow...or maybe give me a year i swear
