Lord have mercy

It's 10 pm and the end of a very long day.

It was one escapade after another with Fly. The worst was him getting drenched in cough syrup and then playing in the cat litter box so that little excrement-infested pebbles were stuck to his body. Not the least was me getting head-butted and bitten. The diaper came off twice, and the potty wasn't good enough for him -- he had to poop on my pants (which I'm still wearing, actually). I spent an hour cooking dinner, and all he ate was a handful of corn. And? He's still awake in his crib.

I remember reading another blogger putting it this way once: Age Two is totally kicking my butt.

I think I might cry myself to sleep....

SOOOOOO been there. And at our house it's that times 3! Ak! It was days like this that my mother-in-law said "I think age 3 is worse than age 2" and I wanted to scream because age 2 was certainly hard enough!

tomorrow will be better. It has to be!

Yep...we had one of those days here too. I love my kids...but tonight I breathed a sigh of relief when they were finally SLEEPING in their beds. Hope you have a better day tomorrow!

I feel your pain. But...OH MY GOD - You still have a crib? At least you can keep him contained. Primo was out at 20 months. It'll get better. And then worse. And then better...

Get wine.

Here's hoping tomorrow is better!

Hang in there!

Actually two is not bad for my kids, it is three that kicks my butt. I am still fighting a battle of wills with Evan on a daily basis and it is exhausting. right now he is repeating everything that I say so I have a little parrot in my house.

Oh, how exhausting. Although, being able to stay at home with one's kid is a true blessing, it is certainly difficult. It's very much worth the pain. At least that's what I keep telling myself. I'm praying that Fly wakes up in a much better mood.

I've been there, too. Sometimes crying yourself to sleep isn't a bad option. Maybe you'll get flowers. :) Hang in there!

I can so sympthize with you. Except mine is closer to being four and days like that are farther and farther apart. It does get better, I promise!

I don't want to tell you this but, at least for us, 3 has been much, much worse than 2. I'm really hoping 4 is better.

Shooooot, age 2 - age 4 - age 11 are kicking mine.

I look like a prize fighter of motherhood.
