And The Mother of the Year Award Goes To...

NOT ME! Man do I have a story for y'all. After dropping Cody off at the air port yesterday, I felt pretty confident as a single mother. I got a lot of cleaning done yesterday and some blogs written. I felt like I accomplished a lot. The house looked better yesterday then it has in a long time actually. It was nice. I even managed to eat some good meals and not pig out on anything sugary. WOO HOO. Today started out okay for about an hour or so. I had to go to Walmart which the second Tyler started giving me trouble I just thought "Oh great!" He told me he didn't want to go and that made it even harder.

We went to get in the car and my door wouldn't unlock! I JUST got that fixed about a month ago and n0ow it looks like I will have to take it back in. Grrrrrrrrr. That makes me mad. We got to Walmart and Tyler was a WONDERFUL boy! Kayla was also very good which was just perfect. We got home and the trouble started with Tyler again. Him and I just weren't getting along today. He asked me to make him a peanut butter sandwich and then wouldn't eat it and kept asking for other things. I finally turned the TV off and told him he HAD to eat or go to bed. He decided to go to bed, which really surprised me. So I put him down for his nap. He of course didn't really sleep and after about 2 hours of him being in his room I got him up. He told me he was hungry and ask me for some crackers. I told him that he could eat his sandwich and he said he wanted it. I got it for hm and then he of course started crying. "Here we go" I was thinking. We kept bickering and I finally said, "Let's go to the play ground." Tyler was excited about this so I put Kayla on her boopy on the couch and went to go brush my teeth. She was fussing a little but wasn't screaming and crying. I went to go get some socks and I thought to myself, "I should go see if Kayla is okay" but I decided I was only gonna be another minute and she would be fine. I walk into the living room. Look at the boopy and Kayl is not there!!!!!! SHE FELL OFF and was on the ground! I ran over to her and picked her up. I was in total shock that my not even quite 3 month old fell off of the couch! Yup, WORSE MOTHER EVER! Okay, I know I am not the worse mom ever, but it sure felt like it. I had been holding her for about 30 seconds to a minute when my phone started rining and guess who it was? MY MOM! How did she know....haha I think Kayla has since forgiven me because she was a smily girl this evening. I got some new pictures of her and wanted to share them. FIRST is a picture of Tyler which helps you understand how my day went.



Here is my girl...so forgiving when they can't speak ( or remember 5 minutes ago! )







Feeling slightly better after his bath, here is my cranky boy



Last night I took some pictures of Kayla and I in the mirror and I LOVE how they turned out





So next time you feel like a bad mom, just remember that Katie let her kid fall off of the couch when she was still a tiny baby and that should make you feel better. If that doesn't help, you can also remember that when Tyler was 15 months old, I locked myself out of the house for about 30 minutes. Yup....that should do it.

Ha! I laughed the whole time I read your blog! Max fell off the couch once when he was a baby on his Boppy, he's eaten a button, yesterday he chewed on a candle and I've let him scream in his crib while I showered. You're doing a great job though and I can't imagine having two! Mmmuah!
