So fast forward to 6:30am,, Jess wakes me saying I need to write her a check for a yearbook,,I get up do that, send her off to school, hop in shower to get ready cuz fairly new babysitting girl is coming at 7:15 this morning. Before I'm even out of the shower Emma is up, once new girl arrives shes crying and sad,, She doesnt like her mom going to work and is having a hard time with it bless her heart, but it sure makes for a long day. I hope this wont last long!
I didnt mean for this to be a day in the life post so lets skip forward to around 10am, I start my getting ingredients out for my marathon baking and spill almost a whole container of cocoa powder all over the kitchen floor,,, what a stinking mess!!! That was not easy to clean up, especially when I have to tell a 1 year old to stay away and out 500 times while Im trying to clean it up and every time I tell him to get out he throws a fit. (deep breath) First I get the pancake sausage muffins done, then corn dog muffins, and applesauce bread! I sure thought it seemed like more than it looks like here
|LOL the hot dogs in the muffins arnt really a surprise are they?|
After I got the kids started I got my lunch ready, leftover crock pot fried rice and grilled chicken from last nights dinner. Ben made sure to save me some so I could have some for lunch. I was so excited,,, put it in the microwave(which we keep in the laundry room due to lack of space in the kitchen), got it out. It smelled so good! I was carrying it out to the table and low and behold that bowl slipped right out of my hand and spilled all over the floor! :(
I was so sad I could have cried. I didnt even bother cleaning it up, the dog was already there enjoying what I was supposed to be eating... So instead I tried out the corn dog muffins I made and they were really good so I ended up eating 2. Plus some hummus chips with hummus and raw carrots and grape tomatoes. Over 500 calorie lunch that was only supposed to be around 300.
Lets hope the rest of the day looks up, ,I think we are going to Apple Bees for dinner tonight for a treat so at least I dont have to cook anymore!
And I hope you all dont think I'm a terrible mother now for complaining about Emmas sleeping habits.
