I know I got a little smug yesterday about my exceptional parenting and my extremely cooperative children. And I know I had it coming today after going public with my very smooth and fun day. But really? All of this?
Today Reed had three time outs before breakfast.
During breakfast, Skyler said to me: "You are not the queen of my life."
To which I replied: "Actually, yes I am."
In the middle of the grocery store, I said "I need a vacation. To Mexico."
Skyler rolled her eyes and said: "Good luck with that."
Each child said "This is so boring" about 53 times each. The bank teller asked me if I was "enjoying school vacation" in a tone that implied I looked like I was not.
Reed poked Skyler and destroyed her lego tower which made her cry in an extreme manner that was not proportional to the crime.
And that was all fairly normal, but did Target really have to go into "CODE YELLOW" today because I lost Reed? Really?
Over the walkie talkies to the other employees, a Target manager had to say these words: "There is a 5 year old blonde boy missing in the store. He is wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and a pair of earmuffs over the hood."
Okay universe, I guess we're even. And did I say something about valium?
