Despite our best intentions, sometimes things are just ugly with 3 kids ages 6, 4 and almost 2. Here's a sample of our morning on our last day of vacation. These things all occured between 8am and noon.
-Allie had to be removed from the restaurant 3 times at breakfast for screaming tantrums. All eyes were on us.
-Ben "squirted" diaherrea in bathroom all over floor, his clothes and toilet paper. "I don't know how that happened!" he said.
-So windy out and waves were so dangerous that the boat trip we were going to take was cancelled and we couldn't go to the beach or swim outside.
-Found a cool park, but it was so windy we just about blew away.
-Broke rear hatch on van on day we need to load up to go home-can't open back door. I'm not joking. We had to take out carseats and load from the front of the van.
-Allie has cried most of morning. Literally one tantrum after another. Literally.
-Decide to treat kids to frozen yogurt before lunch; finally found long sought after metered parking spot, paid meter and walked in hurricane-like weather to find that they weren't open.
-Both boys had to pee in the emergency "pee cup" in car and spilled entire cup of pee over daddy and van. I'm not kidding.
-Upon arriving back at hotel, within 15 minutes, Sam spilled yogurt all over the couch and two cups of milk all over our hotel room.
-Sam is writhing in pain naked in front of the back door of hotel for all to see due to constipation.
-Allie's poopy diaper is unbearable in small space but no one wants to change her again.
Clearly we are all about bodily functions. I feel terrible for whoever has to clean our room after we leave.
