A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Mom Ramblings #9

Mom Ramblings #9

1.  I love my kids, but if one of them asks me to wipe their bottom again, walks through my flowers, or fights over a stinkin' McDonald's toy again, I may lose it.

2. Tiny G has 4 teeth coming in, cut, bleeding gums.... needless to say, we have about 4 diarrhea diapers a day, he chews on my cheek, he is loaded with tylenol and I may or may not have given him benadryl to get him to sleep a little last night.

3. I'm not going to lie - number three got deleted because I'm not ready to go there....you'll know when I am.

4. I keep trying to go clothes and shoe shopping for myself with all three boys in tow. I must be absolutely nutty.

5. Dandelions are the bane of my summer existence. I can't stand them. I need a new tactic. Anyone got any ideas? We have a huge field behind us and live on top of a hill. The windiest spot in the state.

6. If I change one more thing in my house, I may be a single mother.

7. I better stop changing things. Guess I can't change another poopy diaper. Seriously. Ohmygawd.

8. I need a new swimsuit. Where do people buy them? I haven't gotten a real one in many, many years. I will tell you I won't be in a teensy-tiny teeny-weenie yellow polka dot bikini, I have had three kids, you know. And to those of you that have had three or more kids and can wear that bikini - you suck. Yeah for you!

9. I didn't skip 9 this time :)

10. Today is Earth Day. Hurray for the Earth. Be good to it. Hurray to Target for giving out a free reusable tote. Hurray for me remembering to bring it every time we go. Which we all know is every other day - if you don't go that often you are so lying!

11. That's it.

My favorite is number 8, sorry hun... it never ends. Do they make bathing suits with a spanx built in.

Oh Kirsty, I had to laugh. I feel your frustration, I really do! It's been a while since I've wiped poopy butts but I am still cleaning up messes, just a different kind. #4, really nutty! They crawl under the stalls and peak at other half naked women who aren't all too thrilled. I would rather buy, try on at home and then return stuff later. #8, try Landsend.com. They have great fitting suits that don't ride up. Maybe not the most variety for styles but they fit well, have great customer service too. Oh, and think about a tankini. Because you don't want to have to go to the bathroom wearing a one piece with a kid in the stall with you who talks way too loud and wants to know why your boobies look like that. Just saying.

I think I read that spanx IS making a suit, Lori. Will asked if we can have a cake for Earth Day, any excuse for a party for that kid. Kirsten, I remember you asking the same thing about swimsuits last year! I always get mine at J Crew. I'm also curious as to what #3 is, I hate suspense.

OK, I was just crying, reading someone else's blog about their love affair with their home and feeling sorry for myself because I don't have one - love affair with a home that is. And then I forced myself to get off that blog and ran to yours. Now I'm smiling and laughing and breathing again. And feeling just fine!

You have that special touch!

I got my (non-super-skinny-girl) suit at Target last year. You know, since you'll already be there...

I hope it turns into a good day for you! I had a rough day with my boys yesterday, so I'm with you. Except that you have one more. :-)

Check out the swim suits at Target. I get mine there every year! I don't have kids but you would never know that looking at me! ;)

They are pretty decent quality and not overly priced!

*sigh* That's all I have to say. And we need a drink.

You don't know me, but I love your blog! I love LANDSEND for swimsuits. A little pricey, but worth every PENNY!!

If you want a nice suit that will last try athleta. Landsend is OK but very "mom"ish IMO. Also doesn't fit smaller sizes well. Athleta suits are nice and thick and tons of variety.
