A Day in the Life...

This blog post is inspired by Allison Condy's recent post this week highlighting how crazy her day can be with three small children.
5:00 am- get up to feed baby
6:00 am- still feeding baby, she pretended like she was done and ready to go back to sleep but tricked me-she knows I'm a sucker for that.
7:45 am- child #2 gets up soaking wet (combination of milk he slept in and pee that travels up his shirt since he sleeps in the weirdest prayer position)...bath time.
8:00 am- child #3 wakes up since she hears child #2 screaming like a banshee in the bath (happy little banshee)
8:30 am- breakfast/food all over the floor time
9:00 am-feed baby again, child #2 comes in and presents his diaper to me that he currently loves to take off and pee on the floor (what is it with pee and this child?)
Its a good thing my next door neighbor is a carpet cleaner.
11:00 am- mom comes over to help with the kids while I finish a Complaint (yea, at least I get to sue someone today:).
1:00 pm- sister comes over to babysit so I can go to the Courthouse and officially sue some pants off.
4:00 pm- go grocery shopping and bank, come home to find the neighbor kids running around in the rain then sloshing in and out of the house (thank you husband) again I am grateful the neighbor is a carpet cleaner.
5-7:00 pm- make dinner, clean up the disaster I call my house, feed baby, kids, husband.
7-9:50 pm- hallelujah, hallelujah, hallay looya! One night a week I get all to myself to go write. I usually go to Barnes & Noble and find a cushy chair in their quiet little nook area. Its a little piece of heaven on earth.
9:52-10:00 pm- run into Target and buy badly needed diapers and whatever else I can grab in 8 minutes before they kick me out. Strangely I was able to find over $200 worth of things I needed in that time!
10:15 pm- get home and husband is asleep on couch with baby, and child #1 is still awake enjoying a bowl of cereal.
11:00 pm- in bed finally, checking my favorite blogs before I pass out and do it all again in 5 hours.

My Harry Potter Closet

In my house I have a little room under the stairs, it even has a little door perfect for my kids. The problem is two-fold: One-my children cant seem to understand how to keep their little room neat and tidy (strange I know!:) and so if not cleaned out monthly the toys have a tendency to stack up to the ceiling; Two-my little boy likes to play hide and go seek with his food in there and forget to seek it later. The smell has still yet to come out after two rounds of carpet cleaning.

First Blog Ever!

So I have sort of become a closet blog reader lately. I always said I hating "blogging" because it seemed more like "bragging!" But I have been reading the blogs of some very entertaining people lately and I figured it was time to come out of the closet (blogging closet, just to be abundantly clear):)

I deliberated for way too long for a title of my blog, and so I just wanted to take a moment to explain it. I have always been a bit of a drama queen. I caused my parents a good deal of heart ache in my youth. To be perfectly honest, I was a nightmare...and deserved to be slapped (though I never was to their credit). Although, my mom did once throw a cassette tape at my head and got me pretty good. It was my own fault- I was taunting her because she couldn't catch me! But I digress...all I mean to say is that I was impetuous, wild, and very disobedient at times. Instead of calling me any of those things, my dad was always positive enough to describe me as "spirited." I always appreciated that!
