My Pre-Valentine’s day…

 

Well, my day started good like every other day with my husband waking me up with the most annoying sound I can ever think of  the “phone finder” (which I’m very sure it was a lonely person that invented that app!) and then my race started…kids,breakfast,lunch box jackets to the car they go…Back home they come,because I forgot the dog had to go outside and then off to school they go! So in my merry way to work I go! Aw the joy of driving in a quiet car,  me myself and my thoughts! 

On Thursdays my schedule is insane because I have very little time between leaving work, rushing home to get the kids and go as quick as I can to church…It’s a must that I get there 7:30! Well, this Thursday my children reminded me that I had to buy chocolates and valentine’s day cards…Why do I have to procrastinate everything?Why don’t they make stores stay open until 12 a.m?  I bet they would have lots of business from people like me! And Ethan turns to me and says that he’s tummy didn’t feel well, I could see a storm brewing  =( I said a quick prayer apologizing for not being able to attend church and off to Walmart I went with 3 kids! Oh boy there’s something about that McDonald’s that makes kids go insanely hungry…well at least my kids! I tell you,they could have just finished eating and  as soon as they see the arch they get hypnotized  “MOMMY I AM HUNGRY! lolsss! After feeding them I see from the corner of my eyes parents going insane at the “valentine” Aile that they ( walmart employees) so kindly separate to make your life easier or should I say make you spend more lolsss I tell you those parents were just as frustrated as me, I couldn’t find anything and in a good price, my kids were all talking at the same time it was a mess…oh! did I mention that I was having an anxiety moment? The walls were closing in on me! So I looked at my kids and say ENOUGH! one at a time please sweet heart! So I got Gyovannah’s cards, Nicholas’ cards I had a little trouble for the child could not make up his mind! and Ethan, that was easy,any avenger and we are rolling! Now the chocolates.Do you know why chocolates are expensive? Because they know that after you spending the money to buy them, you WILL HAVE TO eat them to get rid of your depression! I had a hard time finding budget wise chocolates and that tastes good, sorry I will not give something that I wouldn’t like it for myself! so, I found one that I liked it!Then it came the teachers gift…a bear for nick’s…Why does a child(Ethan) needs 5 teachers in a classroom? Gyovannah’s teacher is a man what do I give  him? After a mini stress I got a box of turtles, for what man doesn’t like turtles? ( well, he should be happy, it was the turtles or a fairy wand that lit up!) after paying everything… $70 worth of chocolate I hear Nick saying mom can I go…and before I said no the child desappeared, keep it in mind Ethan was crying complaining of his tummy, no where I looked, could I see Nick after 10 minutes that felt like 2hrs I turn to talk to nick and when I turn back it was like Ethan was a faucet pouring out puck…I so wanted to be in my bed that moment, you should see the face the young boy that works at the store looked like! After cleaning him as much as I could, we went home for me to fill in all 79 cards, oh joy! I tell you if my husband looked at me with  funny eye that night I think I would’ve poked his eyes! He knew better!

I can say I did a beautiful Job, I managed to finish everything by 2 and climb to my bed at 2:40! What a mom won’t do for her babies!!  I love my babies!
