  1. Hope you feel better now you’ve let that out! 🙂

    1. I felt better after they were dumped out at school – tempting not to stop the car first. 😀

  2. That sums it up quite nicely.

    1. Thank you. For more explanation, see tags. Though they may confuse you more.

      1. I saw that. My personal favorite was “stomach aches cured by sausage biscuits”.

        1. Yes, it was amazing how she felt well enough for a sausage biscuit despite the debilitating stomach ache she thought should keep her home.

          1. It’s not funny, but it’s funny how they give themselves away.

  3. My sentiments exactly. It’s a Snow Day so school is out and the kids are home. Lord, grant me the patience…

    1. Oh, mercy on your soul. I have a “the horror” snow day post. Two days snowed in with the Things. Arghhhhh.

  4. The problems always start when you have to get out of bed, don’t they? I have something that might cheer you up. I’m going to write a series of Twilight anti-fan fiction short stories. I’ll post the first one later.

    1. That does make me feel better! Can’t wait. I am considering a parody of 50 Shades when I’m done with the recap – because I hate that book so much it deserves it. Picture this. Our hero: Richard (Dick) Peen. Our heroine: Bambi Vagina. What do you think?

      1. YES! Can she turn out to be a bloke in drag though?

    1. I’m more annoyed before 8 am than some people are all day.

  5. Don’t bottle it up like that…

    1. Okay. *&()&*$#_)(&$#%^^((^$$#!!!!

      1. Go, girl, go! (-_-)\(^-^)

  6. Hee hee….I hear ya….
    Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom – this is important! Mom, I can’t get this package of fruit gummies open, can you get the scissors that are right within my arm’s reach? Mom! Mom! Mom!

    1. I’ve had more phone calls interrupted that way. “Hey now that you’re on the phone, can we have together time and snuggle and I’ll look all sadfaced if you say no and really I just want to make sure you aren’t talking about me and laughing.”

    1. That was last week. I only had two days off with them and holy jeeeeez.

  7. Yup, sounds about right.

    1. Children are from Heaven . . . snort.

      1. They are. God decided He didn’t want them messing up the place so he sent them to Earth instead.

  8. I think every parent can relate to this one. My two boys have been enjoying some extra sibling rivalry these past few days. Really enjoyable for me, too…

    1. Isn’t it fun? My favorite was when I’d gotten Thing Two calmed down with her McD’s sausage biscuit stomach ache cure and Thing One says “I knew you weren’t sick.” (facepalm)

  9. More tortuous than Fifty Shades….?

    1. Well, not that extreme. I do love my children most of the time. I never love that book.

  10. Alice, this post lacks substance. Wtf? 😉

  11. That made me laugh. One word can perfectly sum up how your day is going.

    1. It’s true. Now aren’t you SAD you didn’t decide to rent out your uterus?

      1. My uterus and I cried tears of happiness together when we read your post.

  12. Your experience reminds me of this, especially from about 2:00 until 4:00, but entire sketch in general.

    1. Oh My God that was hilarious . . . I am laughing so hard. (spelled it out because I really am). I LOVE Denis Leary but I hadn’t heard that one. Too, too damn perfect.

  13. I couldn’t have said it better!!

    1. Did you arghhh today too?

  14. Hahaha! Although I am childless, I can understand your frustration. I see my niece, nephew and sister-in-law daily and your post sums it up perfectly!

  15. I’m so there with you on this post. Sigh.

    1. That could have been another post. Sighhhhhhhh.
