i am on a roll

IMG_1141

so it's no secret that i've had a couple of tough weeks
just your typical hormonal, sleeplessness dealing with a two year old who has suddenly
started sleeping three hours less per night - no biggie, all moms have done it. so i said lots of prayers
and ate lots of treats and read THIS book and survived to tell the tale.

in fact, i don't want to toot my own horn, but i've been rocking it this week (toot toot)
i finally feel like i've pulled myself back together.
i'm cooking
i'm cleaning
i'm showering
i'm amazing

today was a particularly great day. play date = little boy heaven galore.
i cleaned and played and was fun happy cheerful mom
at one point i even had the audacity to think to myself
"man, i wish i was this kind of mom everyday!"

well...

so the kids get up from naps and we get ready for the gym
the boys don't totally want to go so i bribe them with chocolate - i do not consider this a parenting fail
i'm changing K's poopy diaper and letting her roll around a bit with her buns exposed to help with our
six week battle of the diaper rash which is finally clearing up - not a parenting fail
i finish getting the boys ready and am standing at the sink washing my hands

i hear a little gag
i look up
i cringe
i look closer
K has attacked and
OPENED
the poopy diaper
(which i had set several feet away but not taken out yet)
head to toe, hands and face
clothes
floor
PACIFIER
covered
with
poop

and the gag? because the pacifier was in. her. mouth.
parenting fail

Photobucket
really? i mean, really?
needless to say i scrubbed scrubbed and scrubbed
and went to the gym with a slightly nauseated stomach

just when i thought i had this parenting thing in the bag
.fail.
