I'm taking it as a compliment...I think...

Today has been one of those days.
You know, the days when you wake up and think "Uh oh, today could be a doozy."
Well, my initial observation proved to be correct.

I was awakened at 6 something this morning to the sound of awful thunder and my baby toddler crying.
The storm was so loud that I initially though that my neighbor must have been hitting his garbage can with a bat right outside our bedroom window.
It was seriously loud.

I dragged my weary self out of bed to get the morning drinks ready: milk, juice and of course coffee.
Adison was still sleeping so I went ahead and got the littles up.
Ainsley was her chipper little self, but Abby...well, that's a different story.
She didn't want to drink her milk, she didn't want to eat her breakfast, she didn't want her diaper changed.
You get the picture, right?

I ended up putting Abby back down for a nap a little after 8.
In the meantime, Ainsley and I enjoyed some Phineas and Ferb as well as some one on one time.
I then heard a soft knock on the front door.
It was my dad!
Bearing gifts of donuts!

A short while later everyone was up and the morning was moving along.
The kids destroyed the house in a matter of moments and Abby was still pretty cranky.
{We discovered shortly after that Abby is teething, it looks like four teeth are coming in at once. Ouch!}
It's life though, life with three kids.
At least life with our three kids.
Ha ha!

I am pretty used to it as I stay home with them all day.
K though, well he had some differing thoughts.

It takes someone special to keep up with our kids.

Aw, honey, are you saying that I'm special?

Yes..well, either that or insane.

I choose to take it as a compliment.
That's how you'd take it, right?


  1. haha. that's cute.
    My favorite part of the story is that your dad showed up unexpected to surprise you with donuts. Sounds like something my dad would do if he had grandchildren living here. Kind of makes me want to have a baby.
    Oh oh, Danna. My husband's going to be calling you to "thank" you for putting ideas into my head ;-)

  2. LOL! I think it's a little of both! What mother isn't amazing and just a touch insane as well?! You are incredible though Danna! Thanks for being you!

  3. I'd take it as a compliment!

  4. Definitely a compliment! I'm always amazed how my home can be somewhat picked-up and cleanish. Then! It is a disaster just a few hours later. Like now, for instance. I am procrastinating cleaning up and reading blogs instead. Heehee!

    Sorry about your teething one--hopefully all those teeth will come in quickly!

  5. Definitely a compliment! You're a fabulous mommy!! I love Phineas and Ferb AND Donuts too : )
