Just To Show How Kids Can Change Your Plans

I had my "To Do" list all ready for today. I had stuff to accomplish and wanted to have some fun with Aiden on top of it. But here it is almost 3:00 in the afternoon and I've only accomplished a small part of that list. Why??? Kids.
6:00 am Aiden wakes me up and says he needs new pj's. He had wet through his so off we go to change his diaper, PJ's, and bedcovers. There's one load of laundry I hadn't planned on doing today.
7:45 am Aiden wakes up in my bed and comes out with me and the boys. I notice he had a bloody nose so I get him cleaned up and then go in to inspect my bed. Hmm, bloody pillow, sheets, and COMFORTER! Another load of laundry I hadn't planned on doing today. I also hadn't planned on changing the sheets on these beds as I JUST CHANGED THEM ON THE WEEKEND.
8:15am After taking the older boys to school I come home and Aiden informs me he has a poopy diaper. So much for going on the potty like he had been. Little did I know that this one would be a messy one too. It's all up the backside, in his clothes, and of course......I get it on the carpet. I pop him in the shower to clean him up, clean the tub and then let him play in a bubble bath. He's now clean and dressed, I have the first load of laundry going (of the laundry I HADN'T planned on doing today) and had the carpet shampooer upstairs to clean the poopy carpet.

Can you see where I'm going with all of this?? But lucky for me, I DID get the dishes all done, make home made soup with Aiden and play with him for a bit. Now I'm off to remake the two beds that had to be washed and get to washing the clothes that I had planned on washing today. Oh, and I still need to hit the grocery store because it rained all morning long and the thought of pushing a crapload of groceries and a toddler in the pouring rain across a flooded parking lot did nothing to entice me. At least I have my supper menu planned!! And I'm just crazy enough to sit down and make another "To Do" list for tomorrow! :)

A day in the life of a mother of 3 boys....only today it seems it only took one to mess up an otherwise beautiful day. (If you like cold rainy days) Best of Luck for tomorrows plans.

Potty training is a curse word in this mothers mind. ugh. NO FUN.
Tomorrow will be better friend!! :)

Don't you just love those days...SO frustrating*!*

My advice...tear up your to-do list and flush it down the potty with Aiden's missing poo. You KNOW things always work out without plans ;)

On to tomorrow...good luck my friend*!*

Amy said...

Kelly you crack me up! Good luck with your list, hope it goes better tomorrow!

I think I've changed the boys sheets 4 times in this week (no joking) because of accidents or leakage issues so I know how infuriating that extra laundry can be:)
Homemade soup sounds perfect for a rainy cold day like today though...hopefully you had a much better afternoon & evening!
