Days like this

Don't you hate it when your toddler is lying on the floor screaming about not wanting to get in the car so you leave the front door open while you strap the slightly more compliant preschooler into the car and while you're doing that your idiot dog runs out the front door and jumps on the neighbor's dog, whom your kids adore, and they both begin snarling and jumping around all ferociously, so you have to abandon the preschooler and run as fast as your poor overloaded pelvis can carry you and grab the dog and then when you turn around again the toddler is running out the front door still screaming, but now over the dog trauma, and heading for the driveway, so you have to throw the dog in the front door and run after the toddler and all the while you're yelling like an idiot in front of the whole neighborhood and now both kids are crying and asking if Rossby hurt the other dog, whom they love?

Yeah, I do too.

If I say "Wait til there's three of them" will you disown me as a friend?

Just think, soon you will have at least two glorious days in the hospital where all you have to do is stare at a wrinkly little baby face and sleep. In fact, convince them to let you stay for five!

Sounds crazy!

Gotta love those Jack Russells! I always tell the kids that sometimes dogs talk or play by snarling (and sniffing rear ends of course), but it still is scary for them to hear those sounds.

You had me cracking up at "poor overloaded pelvis." Dogs and kids are a recipe for joy and frustration, depending on the given day. And oh my gosh, you will be having 3 of those kids SOON!

I'm with Brooke-- "poor overloaded pelvis" was the best.

Ooof, sorry! I had one of those days, too, except not involving dogs or an overloaded pelvis. Here's to tomorrow, right?

Hopefully your "three kids" won't pull that again, at least until there are 4 to wrangle :)

Oh no! I felt especially bad for your pelvis!
