My last 30 minutes

Posted in The Blasco Kids tagged , , at 9:46 am by mottoblasco

  • Sit down to look at Pinterest (which lasts all of 20 seconds)
  • Andra tells me Jayna is poopy.  Go get her & see AJ’s butt cheeks, so he needs a diaper change too.
  • In a cheerful voice say “Diaper change!”  Jayna comes running signing ‘diaper’, AJ come running and just yells in my face.
  • Ignore him & walk her to the table, AJ follows yelling.  Remind him not to yell.  Change her, successfully.  Then while changing him, she climbs on the side of the changing table & he kicks her in the face.  Scold him & move on.
  • After done realize the diapers are still not put up from 2 days ago, put them away.  Decide to do the homemade wipes wash, grab it & go to the kitchen.
  • When in the kitchen grabbing stuff, I find a hand soap refill bottle I was looking for last week.  Decide to refill that too.  Get the soap out & I hear AJ hitting the vent w/ the big wooden whistle.  Go stop him so as not to wake my brother.
  • ~~Hang on ~~ insert “Mom, mom, mom, mom…” here
  • Hear Jayna on the table, turn to look…yup ON the table
  • Go get her down, notice there is spilled milk on the floor from AJ
  • Grab a napkin to wipe it up, in the background hear a stirring of my coffee cup
  • Turn to see Jayna ‘typing’ & stirring my coffee
  • Go get her down, clean up coffee all over desk(luckily it’s not on the computer)
  • Realize you never finished the soap & wipes wash…go try to finish.
  • While getting the soap you need from the bathroom, turn off 100 lights that the kids turned on and open curtains/blinds in 4 rooms.
  • While doing the soap & wipes wash I hear AJ banging on the floor when I investigate it he’s not just banging something on the floor, it’s a bowl…the contents of which are all over the floor around him.  His little sister is eating the smashed cereal he has dumped and is currently smashing.
  • Eventually I make it back to the kitchen to finish my 2 minute tasks that have now spanned 20 minutes easy.
  • Somewhere in the mix I changed clothes too…just not sure where, probably when I was opening the curtains
I feel like a character from Laura Numeroff’s books: “If you give a _________ a _________”
