Do you ever find that some days your kids seem to annoy you more than usual? It’s as if they woke up and decided, “today was going to be the day I try to send mommy over the edge!” Well for me that day is today.
I am busy trying to get everything done for Girltactics 12th birthday and Boytactics seems to think my sole reason for being on this earth is to entertain him 24/7.
I started to do the dishes and what should have taken 15 minutes ended up taking me close to an hour, as I had to stop and dry my hands no less than 7 times ( I wish I were joking) to help him with this, that and the other thing, (most of which he is absolutely capable of doing himself). I then moved onto the bathroom. As soon as I started to clean, there was Boytactics sniffing the Mr. Clean cap, or at least that’s all I thought he was doing, until 5 minutes later he asked for water so he could “get the taste of the orange stuff out of his mouth.” That’s right, apparently he licked the cap too! So while he was downing some milk I was dialing poison control. If you have been reading my blog for a while you may remember the post I dedicated to calling poison control, if not feel free to catch up!
Well the good news is the amount Boytactics took in is too little to cause any harm, however even if he had gotten more it would most likely just give him a stomach ache. They recommended I give him milk, but since I have experience with my kids wanting to taste cleaners, I was one step ahead!
So Boytactics is fine, I am happy he is ok, but realize it’s before noon and I am already running out of patience for the day!
Here’s hoping your day is going better then mine!
