My husband was supposed to have a day off from work, but then his new boss called and asked him to come in and cover for a co-worker that wouldn't make it in for the 4-9 shift. Hubby gladly accepted and then told me the change in plans. Shortly after that, the boss called back and asked him if he could come in even earlier to cover for a co-worker that wanted to leave early, so instead of 4-9, he'd work 1-9. An extra 8 hours! His job is only part time, so any extra hours is definetely appreciated! He quickly hopped into the shower while I made up a fast lunch and I put one of the kids' bibs on him so his lunch wouldn't mess up his nice clean shirt. He was a good sport!
An extra pair of hands couldn't have stopped what happened later, though... Mom and I were going to take the kids to the food store and I was outside loading the kids in the van and getting ready to head back into the house for drinks when I saw the door was closed. *gasp!* I didn't have my keys! I asked who shut the door and Mom pointed at Oldest. Oh no! I ran to the door and sure enough, it was locked! Fiddlesticks! (ok so I didn't really say fiddlesticks, I said fuck! a lot.) I mentally took inventory of all the windows that were open and figured the easiest one would be in the living room. I grabbed the ladder from the laundry line and walked around the house and tried to pry the screen off with no success. There was a little hole in the screen so I just poked my finger through and ripped it carefully, intending to sew it up later. I pushed Oldest through and voila! We're in the house! On my way around the house, somewhere, I stepped in some cat poo, so that was another "fiddlesticks moment".
At last, we are on our way to the store. On the way back home, Youngest had diarrhea in her diaper (she isn't quite potty trained for long drives) and it leaked out and it got smeared all over the car seat. -sigh- Definetely not one of my better days and my potty mouth was in full force, too. I better get the soap and wash it out!
There aren't very many pictures, because frankly, who wants to look at poo on a shoe or poo in a car seat? Not me, that's who! :o)
Another reason there aren't very many pictures is because of this book: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I had been hearing good things about this series and I love me a good vampire book (anne rice, anyone?) so I asked the library to hold it for me the next time it came in. I just finished it and I'm ready to sink my teeth in the next book in the series! Library day on Wednesday can't get here fast enough!
