Are you kidding me its only 6am……ARGGGGG

Imagine this..Your excited, its your day your going to get your life started!The recruiter shows up to pick you up its 6am and you on your way in to Brooklyn to go take your ASVAB( that’s the Navy placement test). OMG as a mother I can not believe that MY son is old enough to even be doing this! The night before i am filled with excitement and fear of the unknown, I could only imagine how he is feeling!

I hear the alarm go off and its 5 am, mind you I have been up at 2, 3 and 4 am, so at this point I am delirious and all I want to do is go to sleep. BEEP BEEP BEEP (that’s the alarm when the door opens) I must have fallen asleep because now its 6 am and hes walking out the door and all I could do was say good luck and I love you!

7:30 rolls around and like clockwork the pups jump up and are ready to go out..UGGGG I am so tired I can barley walk! So I get the dogs out and feed, do the dishes in the sink throw a load of laundry in..yeah i cant believe I’m doing this either..ITS EARLY.!

I go back upstairs only to see my phone has a text on it, that’s never good at 8:00 am… Mom, I kinda forgot my Social Security card and I cant take the test, We are on our way home ūüė¶

MY heart was in my stomach and I felt so bad for him, but on the other hand it was a wake up call for him… But I don’t know if I should be mad at him or feel sorry for him, ARE YOU KIDDING ME ITS WAY TO EARLY FOR ALL THIS EMOTION. its not even 9 am yet.

In the middle of all this my other son gets up and hes getting ready to go to school and the poisen ivy that he has has spread form the little blotch on his face, to his arms, neck legs stomach and everywhere in-between! BUT the doctors say hes not contagious! Im sorry but its FRIDAY and I just really want the day to end!

Finally the end of the day rolls around well the work day at least and its now time to pick up lil man from school, and I know that hes going to want to hang out after and play in the school yard because that’s what he want to do everyday! But I have a rule, and my rule is..If my nose is cold we don’t stay! Well my nose was not cold so we stayed..Its a good energy release for the kids, soooo run child run. I get home in time to let the dogs out go to the store to do a favor for my oldest, who got an AWSOME suprise from my hubby, go to the METS game with absolutly awsome seats! Any way he wants me to meet this man he has been talking to at a store on Main Street to sell him some cards that he has and the man will only be there on this day at 5 pm! So i say OK, no problem.

5pm rolls around I go in and theres a billion teens in this place and the person im going to see is not there. Really, ok they tell me he will be in at 6! So lil man and I run to the nail place because I need a pedi in the worst way and the women at the nail salon just love him!!! Ok so now i get my 25 min of relaxation and we go back to this place at 6:20 ish, ya know i figure ill give him time to settle in. HES STILL NOT THERE..and i have to be somewhere at 7 pm! We have still not eaten dinner yet. Ok quick get some food get home at 6:55, mom comes at 7 to watch lil man my day has been nothing but a whirlwind of SAGA and i just want to go to BED.

I still have to go meet the women from the football team because its registration day, and I am a part of the team and have to sit behind the table and get asked a million questions and i can barley keep my own head up! FINALLY 9pm rolls around and i drag my tired butt back to my car let out a HUGE yawn turn the car on and managed to get home and crawl up the stairs and land in my bed only to say …THIS IS MY CRAZY LIFE…and I LOVE IT!!!

Spring Break means Mommy has to take you to work…..

This dose not work out in my favor at all! Its hard enough to get a sitter when the hubby and i go out, let alone getting one during the day who will not cost me a billion dollars. The day started off slow and even though¬†I have to go to work, Jason really did not care and proceded to lounge around in his PJ’s whining at me that he really did not think its fair that he has to come with me. Well guess what, you don’t have a choice because you are 8 and well thats how it has to be. This did not go over well..Precursor to the day I might add! CRAP!!

So now its 9:30am and we have not left the house yet!

Jason you need to get ready and we need to go!!!

Mommy, cant we just lay in bed all day?

Jason please get down here !

Mommy I dont want to go…I WANT TO STAY HOME..

Well we cant now lets move, I’ll take you to Mc Donalds to eat, but we need to go through the drive through because¬†I need to get to work( at this point we are so late why even bother rushing).

We finally get to work and set him up, Computer-check¬† Ipad-check chair to sit in and we are good to go. Ahhhh ok¬†I start doing my work!! NOT 5 min goes by and¬†I hear ..IM BOARD…

OMG ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????? Just give me 2 hours ill rush through my paperwork(thats never good) and we will go home just use your ipad watch a movie, but I need to get this stuff done! Mind you I work in a warehouse, its a family owned business(NO, ITS NOT AS EASY AS YOU THINK WHEN YOUR FATHER IS YOUR BOSS) We have a forklift and some other cool toys in here. Jason decides he wants me to drive him around in the forklift. I hear him beeping the horn, mom come on lets drive! LOL ..Seriously I just need to get some paperwork done! So i tell him when i am done we will take a ride around..he says ok mommy and comes into my office and now stars drawing on the white board, every few min he asks me to turn and look at what he drew, finally say to him Sweetie, I really need to finish my work, so we can go!

Image

Needless to say I just gave up put the papers away and took him for his ride on the fork lift, the laughing that came out of this child was infectious..He asked me if he could drive it.. So I let him hit the accelerator button(lead foot magee by the way) and the break!

ImageImageImage

He looks me straight in the eyes and says this is the best part of the day mommy, I get to be with you..OMG I melted in the seat! Lets get out of here I tell him!

We decide to go to the movies and see OZ, it was a really cool movie, abit scary for him but a good movie..then we hit target to get some drinks for the house and headed home.

My husband at this point texts me to let me know that hes home and has fed the dogs(in my house this is a project because bella the boxer will eat bailey the Maltese’s food if you literally don’t sit there) ohh yeah and bailey is a slow eater takes him almost 30 min to eat his food, that he picks up out of the dish and puts on the rug only to eat it one by one..akkkkk! And my oldest calls to tell me he will be home by 12 hes going out with his friends. UMMM¬†I did not hear a “Mom is it ok if i go out?” That will not float in my house, you ask me not tell me! Well i guess im lucky he still tells me what hes doing!

Its almost 8 pm now i have not been home yet all¬†I want to do is go to bed! Yeahhhh ok, I dont sleep untill everybody is safe at home in my house(Its a mom thing, I’m sure you understand) Now comes the tricky part, My cat and dog have some issues, they love to hate each other so there are some gates in my house..But the cat is getting very daring and she has been jumping the gates to torment the dog..Well¬†I move the gate to go upstairs she flyes up the stairs and with that the cat follows, JEEEEZ¬†I run up the stairs to get in between them trip up the stairs shoes go flying crack my knees hit my head(i wish i could have seen what i looked like) twisted my ankle and save the cat.. all this and¬†I was holding my other dog in my arms because he dose not do stairs!He is fine.¬† IS THE DAY OVER YET??????? Nope i still need to wait for Andrew to get home before¬†I go to sleep!

Finally¬†I get lil man to bed and about 30 min later i hear a thud on the floor along with a few more thuds on the floor! What is that Its jason tossing GAK around that now is stuck to his ceiling and WONT come off! 25 minuts later after scrubbing the ceiling and most of it came off¬†I say GO TO SLEEP NOW!¬†Argg time to¬†get some laundry done and about 11:15 ish I get a text, Mom im outside¬†I came home early for you so you can go to bed! I LOVE THAT KID.. I have 2 great kids and i don’t know what i would do with out them..To the moon and back with stars bursting out of my heart, LOVE YOU!
