Bring on that Midnight oil!

Man, life has been crazy the last few days.  When I started this blog I’d hoped to post when ever I strayed from my writing as a way to get me back to work.  That has so not happened.  I haven’t even been able to write for days, except for a morning post.  All thanks to my wonderful two-year old.

Don’t get me wrong, I love her death.  But man is she driving me crazy!  She’s hit the terrible twos running.  And I’m chasing after her from dawn till way past dusk screaming, “No! The loin doesn’t get to go potty!”  If I manage to get her into highschool without going bald it will be amazing.

As it is, I have a deadline to make and at the rate things are going, I’ll have to invest in some major midnight oil to make it.  Who needs sleep?  Not this single mother, that’s for damn sure.

    I feel ya. I have 2 kiddos and sometimes I just want to pull my hair out. Sending cyberhugs your way.

  2. Ah…I remember those days! I was once *trying* to conduct an interview over the phone with my then 4-year-old watching Alice In Wonderland. During a pause in the conversation I was having on the phone, my daughter blurted, “Mom, look! It’s the caterpillar smoking a hooka!”

    Luckily my interview subject had kids of her own, because she said, “Alice In Wonderland. My daughter drives me batty with Beauty and the Beast.”

    It’ll get….um…more manageable. (Notice I didn’t say “easier!”) 🙂

    I love how they embarass us in public too. Ah, the things they say. LOL

    My daughter (3 years old at the time) loudly told everyone what kind of “equipment” her new baby brother was sporting. That was fun. I think I might have been less embarassed than some of the other folk though. 😀

      A little boy did this to me at the store last week. His mom was mortified, but I understood. I’ve found most people are very understanding when it comes to toddlers lack of verbal filter.
