10ish more days

So I am really grateful for life but this week has been a long and exhausting one! I am SO ready for this deployment to be over and for my husband to be home again!

This week:

  • Temper tantrums have reached a whole new level. Skyla threw her shoes at the teacher because she did not want to get on the bus to go to school. Ceci just pulled a handful of her own hair out because I told her it was not ok for her to slap Skyla across the face.
  • Skyla showed me that she can write her name really well. She wrote it all over the side of my car and the car next to me.  Sorry to the random person that has Skyla written in the dust on your car.
  • I went to the dentist. I was numb for 4 hours. I am still not able to open my mouth all the way.
  • All three of my kids got sick. Thankfully on the same day so I only had to miss one day of work.
  • It got five days closer to my husband coming home! YaY!




“Ya he’s going to kick your butt”

*****NOTE**** Juan Carlos Maldonado please don’t kill me after you read this!

Today I came home from work with a splitting headache. Almost as soon as I got Orlando out of the car seat he started screaming as loud as he could. While I was holding Orlando and trying to wash my sheets, Ceci decided it would be a good idea to draw on the tv with chapstick. It wasn’t just the normal kind of chapstick either. It was the really icky oooey gooey sparkly kind. She then proceeded to have a 20 minute temper tantrum because I took her “ip loss”. As I was explaining to the girls that they are not allowed to touch the TV because it belongs to Daddy and Daddy will be very mad if it gets broke Skyla jumped in and said, “Ya Mom he’s going to kick your butt if you break the TV!”

Here are some other things that didn’t go so well today:

  • When I got out of the shower Ceci was in my bed surrounded by a giant wet spot!
  • The first thing Orlando did when I got him out of the crib this morning was stretch and puke all over me.
  • As I was taking the kids to school this morning Ceci told Skyla, “Skyla, I peed in Mommy’s bed.” And then she laughed.
  • Orlando cried non stop from 4:30ish to 7:00ish. He paused long enough to eat and take a quick bath.
  • My girls had cereal for dinner tonight because Orlando would not stop crying long enough for me to cook anything.

Even though I had a tough time today it was worth it because now my kids are sleeping peacefully! Oh and I got the chapstick of the TV screen!
