My Morning in a Nutshell
It started off badly when I overslept. Thankfully we didn't have any appointments but if I don't get up early, get to the gym or to Starbucks, or just get myself composed before the kids get up, then everything just seems downhill from there.
Mack throws a fit after Abe leaves for work. So as he is screaming Daddy!!!, I am trying to get Grace hooked up to the e-stim machine. Sophie is trying to help. Grace is screaming NO!! Finally get her electrodes on and wrapped into ace bandages and into the stander. Mack climbs on the stander and Sophie tries to get her out of the stander. 30 minutes later we get her out and attached her to a board to work on tummy time. She is still screaming "NO" while Mack and Sophie are fighting over a blanket. "MINE!!! I WANT IT!!!" So, I start screaming, "THERE ARE 2 BLANKETS, GET YOUR OWN AND WORK IT OUT!!" while I'm trying to convince Grace that the being attached to this board is really fun. Then Mack crawls on my back screaming "Thomas Thomas" Now Grace wants the "Barn Book". Do we have a barn book?!!?
So, now my hands are shaking and I'm about to stick my head in the oven Sylvia Plath style...and that's my morning.
