We all have bad days. As mothers we sometimes have days where nothing goes right. The kids are grumpy, we're grumpy, then even our belongings get grumpy. Today is one of those days. I've been physically exhausted since bible school in July. We had bible school, refinished our hardwood floors (which involved moving all of our belongings out of the house, then back in.....and the actual refinishing of the hardwood), vacation, starting school.....all within a month. When I get tired, I have trouble with heart palpitations, which have been bothering me the last week.
Rachel pulled a huge dresser over last night....I saw it happening and was able to stop it before it squished her or Jada. So what does she do this morning....she climbs in the drawers again just like last night. Thankfully Aaron caught her this time before she tipped it over again. Then, Jada was eating breakfast and fell off the chair onto the floor. She was fine, but I could tell it was going to be a bad day. Then the lid fell off her sippy cup, and milk dumped all over the floor. As I was cleaning that up I heard a crash from the kitchen. Josiah had pulled a crockpot full of beans off the counter....and they were everywhere!
You're probably wondering what this has to do with double decker Peanut Butter and Jellies. Well, by lunch time my brain was fried! I was making peanut butter and jellies for lunch. I made one sandwich, then without paying attention started jellying the next. Then I realized I was jellying the top of the sandwich I had already made! So, what's a mom to do? I slapped another piece of bread with peanut butter on it on top....a double decker PB&J!!
The boys thought it was really cool, and that I was a great momma! I decided not to tell them the whole truth. Because someday they'll be parents and they'll totally understand!
