You know it’s going to be a bad day when …

You know it’s going to be a bad day when …

… you are awakened in the middle of the night by a little girl (who peed her bed) as she’s crawling in bed with you. Still wet.

… you wake up to day nine of your menstrual cycle. Although I shouldn't complain, it’s the first one in nearly two years. And it’s gotta end soon. Right?

… you try to jump in the shower real quick only to realize there’s low water pressure and no hot water.

… after your shower you realize the downstairs bathroom toilet has been running continually since the last person flushed. After several attempts (and some bad words), you finally get the seal sealed properly.

… as you run into the bathroom, to fix the toilet, you find your son crying holding his bloody wrist. You clean the wound and dress it.

… and then your older sons show you this:

And it's only 8:00 a.m.

(And Joe also left in the middle of the night to catch an early-morning flight for work. He's gone all week.)

I was going to run errands today. Now I think I'm staying home.

I'm so sorry your day has started so poorly. I hope no stitches were required! Take care. Sit back. Sometimes it is better to just stay home.

Stay home. Eat chocolate chips straight out of the bag. Watch a talk show. That kind of stuff. You totally deserve it.

(I kind of remember that first period after the babies as really bad ones too.)

Hi Lera. I just found your blog through Karyn's blog. Sorry your morning has been so rough. I have those days with just one kid, I can't imagine them with 6! Here's hoping it gets MUCH better. :)
