Husband left for the movies. Husband also left an almost entire carton of eggs on the counter within reach of the children. By the time I made it to the kitchen, the eggs had all been murdered. I can only imagine how fun it would be to have an egg fight IN YOUR HOUSE with your brothers. Eggs. Everywhere. Was this breakfast in bed really worth it? My answer was still yes. Started cleaning up the eggs.
While I cleaned up the kitchen, one of my children discovered that if you put an entire roll of toilet paper in the toilet, it becomes a fun sort of mush that sticks to walls and ceilings. This is why I take pictures of my children when they are sleeping. For moments like this.
Cleaned up the bathroom. Bathroom still smells like wet dog. Will deal with that later.
SERIOUSLY THOUGH, while I was cleaning up the bathroom...
Somehow, I am still thinking that breakfast in bed was worth it, and I have not cried yet. This is when I discover the eggs mashed into my living room carpet. I cry a little. By now the kids are hungry and grumpy and probably exhausted from the impressive level of destruction that they have accomplished in one morning. I make them a lunch consisting of left overs from last night and eat some spoonfuls of macaroni salad standing over the sink.
This is when I decide that I need some music therapy. Today was Mumford and Sons. LOUD. Sometimes you just need angry vocals and banjo. I am still not sure what I think of their new album and find myself wondering how they got so angsty. It definitely helped. Husband came home to loud angry music, the smell of cleaning products, and me wearing my best, pajamas and a hairstyle that I like to call, I have not brushed my teeth either. Twins are now napping and Husband has taken Mr. K out so that I can have some peace.
All in all, I don't think that today is terrible. It is not even half over. Who knows what other messes I will get to clean up? My children are delightful, healthy, and mischievous. Husband is much the same. We all love each other. And I definitely don't have time to paint.
