It's A 'Mummy-Fail' Kind of Day

Humble Readers...

It's been one of those kinds of days, and it's not even time for afternoon naps yet.  Can I just tell you how much I'm looking forward to going shopping at tonight?  I need out...

Here's the run-down of what's been happening around the hobbit-hole today:
  • I have had to put Ginny in time out no less than three times already today for poking Pip until he screams, for playing in the garbage can, and for throwing her lunch on the floor. 
  • I was sitting on the couch pumping, with Pip laying beside me sucking my finger to keep him from fussing.  Ginny, in a moment of sheer jealousy, decided she wanted to sit beside me, and so she SAT ON THE BABY!!! 
  • I have had to start channeling my inner guy... In an effort to prevent Ginny from taking her diaper off through her clothes during her nap (and getting rabbit-like turds all over her room like yesterday... I swear she was playing marbles with them yesterday.  ICK!!!!) I have resorted to covering the tabs on her diaper with packing tape.  Only during naps, I swear!
  • Ginny has recently discovered the wonders of climbing.  She's also discovered that she can move the kitchen chairs.  You do the math... I've been heart attacks at regular intervals. 
  • I am sick to death of saying 'Don't touch' or 'No, no, no'.  And why, oh why, does she have to step on my toes multiple times a day?
And just when I think I can't take it anymore, Ginny gets all cute and tries to walk around the house in my shoes. 

I love being a mummy.  Children are a blessing.  I love being a mummy.  Children are a blessing. 

Gotta run.  There a little girl has just started screaming from bonking her head on the floor. 


  1. Oh sweetie! LOL. I'm sorry today has been so hard. It would be so much easier to take on a full night's sleep!!! My son totally painted with his diaper poo. Almost daily. I used to post pictures and stories about it. We called him "poopcaso." What I found the easiest solution (for a while) was to buy those "footie" pajames, cut off the feet, and put them on him backward... so that the zipper went down his back and he couldn't reach it. Worked for quite a while, until he learned to wriggle out of the top anyway (without unzipping it, *sigh*). So good luck with that and I feel your pain! I wish I had good advice on the jealousy thing, but I don't have anything new or earth shattering, so it would sound trite. But just hang in there and good luck! :)

  2. Ginny, you've good for your mummy! She's tired and trying her very best! :) sending hugs!

  3. Feeling your pain, mama, feeling your pain. I have had two really bad days in a row, I just hate feeling like I am letting my children down. I am exhausted from being up all night with the baby (it seems to be getting WORSE instead of better!) that I don't have the patience with twin 2-year-olds during the day. Big hugs to you, hopefully we'll both have a nice weekend!

  4. Owww... I hope things are better by today.

    It is not mummy-fail is more of Ginny realizing the spotlight moving from her to Pip....I hope this jealousy is resolved soon.


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
