Monday mournings

Its Monday morning.
Eight AM.
Its already started out to be a crappy day.
I am really really hoping that from this point on, this day will go forward awesomely.
I woke-up to one little boy asking if it was alright if he could get in the shower because he had an accident last night (he peed his bed). I told him to go ahead. The next thing I knew my second little boy was by my bed side yelling at me. I couldn't understand what he was saying. So in my half asleep state I tried to guess what he needed, every guess was wrong, and every guess made my little boy madder. He yelled and cried, and screamed.
Yes, this is exactly the way that I want to wake-up in the morning. Already being told that I am a bad Mom, not good enough, and already feeling guilty for not waking up before my kids did. If I had I would have been prepared for this onslaught of "Momomomomomomomomomomomom, MOOOOOOM!"
As it was I was completely caught off guard.
When I finally figured out what my little boy wanted it was too late. He needed to go to the bathroom, but the other little boy was already in there. In his yelling at me angry state the little boy pooped his pants and was thoroughly upset about it. So I put him in my shower. So both boys were taking showers. It took five minutes for all the hot water to be gone. All because we didn't turn our water heaters temp up high enough when we got home from our vacation in Florida. So there stood my little boy shiver shaking, freezing cold, and with poop still running down his legs.
Moral of this story:
-Wake-up before your kids and you will have a better day.
-Ingrain in your child's head that there are two bathrooms (if there are multiple bathrooms in your house, if not I feel for that, I grew up in a one bathroom house) and that if someone is in one then they should use the other.
-Make sure your water heater is turned up high enough that you don't run out of hot water ten minutes after turning it on, or five minutes after two people have turned it on.

PS-I received an award from this lovely lady's blog last week and I wanted to say thank you very much ;D

Oh no. Sounds like Philbert needs to call in a personal day and let you have some "me" time. :)

Oh no! Go back to bed and try again! That is not a good way to start the day!
See, I guess this is when it is good to have no privacy. My son would just walk right in no matter who was showering.

Oh honey! I hope your day is getting better!

Sounds all to familiar! We do only have ONE bathroom and it is not uncommon to have those situations come up. ARG! Lol I so hope your day goes better!!!!!

Ohh...not a good start! We had a bad day here, too. Constipation, general grumpiness, and four shots at the doctor's office. Yuck!

Addyson is up before me every day. She is getting better all the time at being quieter so she can get into stuff. Never know just what the morning will bring my way.
