oh i forgot

as a little addition to my last post...the reason why I was grumbling and complaining was because we had one crazy day today. I even had to shut myself in the bathroom and cry out for the Lord to help me before I lost my temper.

Morgan started out trying to be the boss first thing this morning. I said you need to take a bath...un uh! was her response! I informed her that I was mommy boss and she was taking a bath.

Then, she was like a little tornado through the house today. Everything she touched she messed up.

Oh BIG PRAISE she tee teed in the potty today! PTL!
So I took her up to go again and she was dressed so cute with her hair in a bow and she decided to QUICKLY grab the shampoo bottle and dump it all on her hair. So, off to take a bath again. I get her out and begin to try to get myself out of some pjs and I see her booty in the air and the vent cover off. She was eating crackers that she had stashed in the vent. So, I freak out...scream...and ask her what in the world she is doing...to which she replies..."mmmmmm"! SICK!
I leave her again to go get dressed and I hear a loud crash (this is why I don't leave her unattended for 2 minutes). I RUN in and find her whole dresser on top of my sweet two year old baby girl. She really doesn't cry much and all I could hear was...I sowry mommy, I sowry.

So, after that I was so thankful she was ok. I examined her (the dresser is very heavy) and hugged on her for a while but my nerves were shot. I am sure you all have those days though when things just spiral out of control and you feel like you may lose it. This was me. Did I miss my dish of new mercies and sufficient grace today or what? j/k!

I forgot to add the part where I had a box of mashed potato flakes fall all over my head. Morgan said uh oh mommy. LOL!!!

Good Grief Jenny! Have you ever seen the movie "Pure Luck" with Martin Short? Hilarious. I thought of it as I was reading this post!

Tomorrow is a brand new one! Let's see what it has in store for ya!

Love you so much!

Oh my word what a day! I am glad you are both OK but I can only imagine what your stress level got up to!
Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. Praying for perseverance as you finish your studies, as well!

When it rains it pours! I am praying that today brings nothing but peace (well as much peace as one can have with a toddler at home). I am proud that you went into the bathroom to keep from losing your temper --- I usually just let loose and then regret it!

Oh, NO! Tomorrow you will laugh on this, but today....all moms know how you feel. Just another day at the office, where people that do not have this job think you sit on the couch and eat bonbons....
Jenny-you amaze me!
I went out of town this weekend so have not had the opportunity to ask-how are you feeling? You arte in my prayers.

Oh girl! I have lots of day when I get so frustrated! That is why God made them so stinkin' cute, so we can just look at them and smile!!

Bless your heart! I would have passed out if I had found Landon under the dresser!

I am so impressed that she went to the potty!! My niece that is the same age as Landon is already potty-trained! Unbelievable!! I hear boys are harder than girls to potty train. Whew! I dread it!

I hope you are feeling good today! Hope your doctor's visits go well whenever they are!

Love you!
Charity

My youngest did the same thing with her dresser. A drawer stopped it from clobbering her. And my oldest pulled a tv off it's stand. Would you believe it didn't hurt her or the tv? Glad Morgan is good and you will get through these toddler days. They will try all of your patience but they are very precious days. Remember to "just love her." You are so good with words. Thanks for sharing the hard stuff.

Oh man.. what a tough start to a day. I know it was frustrating, but I am giggling at her stashing crackers in the vent. For some reason, that is making me smile the biggest smile! : )

Whoo.. first, thank goodness your daughter is ok. It's great that you went into the bathroom to cool off; I'm usually very bad about keeping my anger in check. Slowly, very slowly, but surely, I'm getting a bit better with it.

Oh, how I love you! Praying for you, sweeite!
