I thought is would be fun to post little chaos clips. What is that, you ask? Well, when there has been a moment of sheer chaos that makes me either laugh or break down into tears, or maybe laugh until I cry or cry until I laugh, I thought I’d post it. I also thought it would be a great chance for me to vent over the occurance without yelling at a child or the man who impregnated me with all of them!
Chaos clip #1- Inaugural edition (drum roll please…….)
I was nursing S7 in the chair while the kids were playing. The girls were working on their calendars and the boys were playing hide and seek in a large suitcase. One would count while the other hid in the suitcase. S6 was wandering around the house with a stinky diaper, playing here and there. The big boys start fighting over the suitcase. I get up and deal with that. I go back to nursing and the two younger girls go get clothes for themselves and their buddies. S3 even got a pull-up for S5 and started to change him. Oops, she didn’t check the current diaper for poop. He pulls his feet out of his pants and diaper and leans back on the clean blankets I washed YESTERDAY! Before then, they hadn’t been washed in over a month. Thanks, S5. I get up, put the baby in the swing and LOCK HIM IN, and go tend to the poop situation. Rabbit drops, thank goodness. In the meantime, S6 sticks his finger and thumb in his diaper. Guess what. He didn’t pull out a plum. Yes, all of this in a span of about ten minutes.
