Things that send my blood pressure through the roof

  • Sass from a three year old. 
  • The nicely folded pile of clothes tossed haphazardly across the living room floor.
  • The high pitched shriek of previously mentioned three year old.
  • Temper tantrums. Theirs, not mine.
  • Preparing a nice hearty breakfast for the other three year old, because he asked for scrambled eggs; only to have him NOT eat it. (Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE wasting food?)

Things that make it all worthwhile.
  • the flirtatious-y peek/giggle routine from the sassy 3-year old.
  • hugs and kisses from the little stinkers
  • the funny little things they say or do i.e.  "Haley hit my meatballs!!!" at least that's what it sounded like he said. I think he meant that she took his red ball. Jon say's he'll never think of meatballs the same way again.
Heaven help me not throttle one or both of them today!

Post Edit: Whining. How could I have forgotten whining??????? Note to my kids: The only acceptable whining in this house will be done by ME!!!!!!

I have been there with the three year old breakfast. Makes me want to shutter and scream.

How long does it take for kids to get over temper tantrums? I am still waiting for my 8-year-old to stop his.

Sounded like my yesterday with a very rotten 3 year old. She got a couple of pops and two time outs. Rough day. Today was much better. Good luck with your double trouble :)

Ha, ha! Sounds like my house, with only one 3 year old!!

How well I remember, like last week! It's a good thing they're so cute so they don't get throttled!

Tomorrow will be a better day. (I hope)
