Gonna Mail Myself To You

I wouldn't necessarily say that today was a bad day, but we sure kept having dumb and at times painful things happen to us. This morning Vance decided to put my mascara on so that was all over his face and hands. He did try and put it on his eyelashes, but failed getting it all around his eyes. You have to love waterproof mascara at times like that. Then he touched my hot hair straightener with his finger and burned it (not bad thankfully). Later today Tanner was crawling around and knocked our big and heavy footstool onto himself. He cried for about a minute. I think he got over it before I did. When I was trying to put one of the gates up I couldn't get it to latch and so I put all force I could muster into it and pinched my fingers in the process. Still in pain from that. I was working on a project for Vance that was taking way longer than I expected it too (why can't my children just sit and play on the floor with a toy while I work on projects...ha) Anyway, during that time I didn't realize that Vance had gotten a hold of our stamps (100 roll) and hid them. I didn't realize this until later when he pulled a stamp off of himself. That sent me looking all over the place for them. I finally found them and was glad to see only two had been taken off and I knew where one of the two was. I found the other stuck on Vance's shirt. You may be wondering what the picture of Vance is above. It is him pointing to his stamp. I think he decided that home was lame and he was going to mail himself back to grandma's where it was fun. Our day rubbed off on Stephen too. He knocked over a metal shelf in our upstairs hallway on the way to get Vance ready for bed. That knocked a container of thumbtacks to the floor and they spilled all over the place. To top that off Tanner had already been put in his crib for the night and he is still awake crying. :) I'm looking forward to going to bed. Maybe Tanner will cry so hard that he will sleep well tonight...

What a fun day! You can mail the boys to me any time you want. Free babysitter up for grabs! It's days like this that make you glad for the uneventful ones sometimes. Sometimes the best part of a day is when it ends.

Sounds rough! I hate days like this. When nothing really goes wrong but nothing really goes right. Sometimes little things add up to a crummy day. Hope tomorrow is better!

Well, it makes you glad that you can go to bed and start over again tomorrow.

You can mail them to me anytime you want, too. I will second the free babysitter! (Of course, there is the drawback that I live a bit further than Kimmy, but the offer is still there.) Hope you have a better day!

Your day reminds me of a song,"Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This" and it sounds like you had one of those days. Hope today is better for you. Vance looks like he is totally innocent of any wrong doing! By the way, how did you get the mascara off him? That stuff isn't easy to remove.
