Dear Friend….

Dear friend (who isn’t really my friend, I actually don’t know you at all),

Please don’t roll your eyes at my 8, 6, and 3 year old.

They’re skipping.

I’m not doing anything about it because they are happy, they aren’t being rude or inappropriate, and I’m tired.

I got 4 hours of sleep last night.  I woke up and got 5 kids ready for school.  That’s 7 frozen waffles (the lazy breakfast), 4 glasses of milk, 20 minutes of nursing, 5 shirts, 4 pairs of pants, 1 pair of tights, 10 socks, and 8 shoes.  I brushed out a head of very long hair while the little mouth attached to it complained.  I packed 3 lunches and double checked a backpack.  We were late today so I did that in 30 minutes.

Don’t look at me like I’m horrible for not making my kids stop squealing and laughing.

I’ve been dealing with a sick 1.5 year old for the last 3 days.  A 3 year old who isn’t sure how to handle her temper (and that results in lots of crying and screaming).  We’ve lost a reading folder, reading bookmark and a library book which means we’ve spent hours looking for each.  I nurse my baby on demand and she’s been demanding it constantly.  I’ve done 10+ loads of laundry so far this week.  Recovery from birth sucks and I’m still not feeling 100%.  Nor am I looking 100%, which is depressing. ZERO % of how I’m feeling is bad because my kids are annoying you.

You look like a junior high mean girl with your eyes rolling and your mean looks to my kids every time they brush your leg.

So unless they are screaming, being destructive, using bad language or hurting someone else’s feelings, I’m going to just sit on my chair, hold my baby and enjoy the 30 minutes I have to do nothing.
