Mommy Day Part III

Part I here. Part II here.

Mommy Day:
noun. A day when being a mommy is exhausting and frustrating.

Yesterday was quite a day. We were off to school later than we should have been, but then had to take a detour due to a loose rotweiller (we were walking). On our detour, we discovered another loose dog. Philosopher Child looked at me innocently and said, "Mommy, why does this keep happening?" Ugh.

Got home with Viking Toddler. A short time later, argued with Husband over the phone about something stupid, though this argument was my fault due to a less than stellar mood. See first paragraph above.

In the afternoon, I received some very bad news from a very good friend of mine.

Come evening, Viking Toddler had diarrhea when he just happened to not be wearing a cover over his cloth diaper. It was 2 1/2 hours of cleaning the floor, the toys, sheets, and the furniture that was in his path. And his brother. Yes, he somehow got his brother. And I'm still not done cleaning the toys.

You know when you have one of those days when you just want to go to bed?

Wow your day exhausts me just reading it. The thought of cleaning that much poo makes me so relieved to be in a house of teen/tweens and that those days are long past. I hope that viking toddler wasn't sick or anything

Thanks for the comments, ladies! No, I don't think he was sick. He had thrown up twice the day before, but it all points to a certain meal he ate that did not agree with him. He seems fine today. Now I just need to catch up on the housework I missed yesterday during the disaster.
