Here's the real deal folks. Most days are great around here and we are all one big happy family. Days like today I just wanna hide! Well I at least want to watch a lot of American Idol and eat chocolate. AND YES! I am guilty of eating comfort food. You can look at me and see I have some "comfort" on me. Stinks that gluttony is so obvious even if it's gluten free gluttony. ;0)
KK spent most of the morning yelling "Mommy!!!!" at the top of her lungs for no particular reason. I think it must have been one hundred times she yelled it. How can a kid be so cute and sweet and yet SO annoying simultaneously? I have no idea. At one point she looked like she was trying to bowl with my drinking glasses. Why was she rolling glasses across the floor while yelling??? Couldn't tell ya...

I found out Zoe hasn't been understanding what was going on in Science or History for the last few weeks but was lying to me and her teachers and saying she was getting it all perfectly. She has no clear explanation for why except that she has a lot of fears of not being perfect we are trying to overcome. Since she has been having a pattern of this not asking for help I explained the discipline she will be having. (losing privileges and such for a few days) At which point she had a monster tantrum which will make her life a little girl boot camp for at least the next week. Sweet Zoe's pretty little life is about to get tougher till she gets in line. Poor little pumpkin. Sweet mommy is gone and drill sergeant mommy is about to arrive.-
My house looks like it imploded on itself. Not kidding. It's really bad. Ughhhhh....
I showered but I am pretty sure I look like I crawled out of a hole. Black smudges under my eyes from old mascara.... unbrushed hair... it aint purty folks.-
Why am I telling you all this? Proof my dear friends. I am far from perfect. I don't have it all together and some times I feel like I don't even know what I am doing. Still.... life is good isn't it?-
Kaitlyn is now sitting on the floor singing "True Friend" by Hannah Montana in an adorable, slightly off key kind of way. One of her polly pockets is telling the other that she is from China.-
Zoe is in the other room pouting quietly which is the best we can hope for at this point. ;0) BUT she is in the OTHER room.... home.... not alone or scared or abandoned. She is just having a hissy fit right here where she belongs. Tomorrow she will be telling me how sorry she is while she puts up the laundry. (little girl boot camp has it's perks for mommy)
Tonight we will all be warm and well fed. (some with dessert and some not) After I read this post I will watch my American Idol and try to refrain from the chocolate. Anyway.... I just wanted to let you in on a little secret.... Soooooo NOT PERFECT.
