A Day In My Life

The following events sum up my last Thursday.

* (12:00) Mylea, Macy, and I go to pick up Leightyn at VBS. Here is our conversation in the car.

Me: Are you ready for some lunch?
Lei: I want McDonalds.
Me: No....we have been there this week.
Lei: But....
Me: We are going to meet Jo at Friday's for lunch.
Lei: HUH!!!!!
Me: Jo called and we are going to eat lunch with her at Friday's.

A quiet pause for a few seconds

Lei: Mom, I'm hungry.
Me: We are going to Friday's to meet Jo
Lei: I want to eat right now.
Me: We are going to Friday's
Lei: But mom.....
Me: What?
Lei: Mom, you said that we are eating at Friday's and I want to eat today. I can't wait till
Friday to eat. Can we please go eat.
Me: (laughing)
Lei: Mom, if you don't want McDonald don't lie....just tell me. I can't wait till Friday to eat.

*(12:15) in the Friday's parking lot
Leightyn ask for some lotion. I give her some and she begins to put it on her face (a lot on her
face, as in cake all over her face).

Lei: Mom, do I look like a loser?
Me: What?
Lei: Do I look like a loser?
Me: What are you talking about?
Lei: Mom, look at my face.....only a loser would use this much lotion.

(5:00) I am trying to get the girls ready so I can go to Bible Study. Mylea is in the beginning stages of potty training. She says "poop" so I tell her to "go sit on the potty". She pulls her panties off and goes to the bathroom. At the same time, I am fixing Leigtyn's hair in the other bathroom. Mylea comes running in saying "eeewwwww poop". I'm thinking ok, she might have gone. I turn around and she hands me a plate from her kitchen. On the plate is her poop. What can I say, at least she didn't go in her diaper.

(5:30) I ran to Wal-Mart to get a few things. Mylea was in the cart and Leightyn was walking next to me. I grab some shampoo, toothpaste, and then go to find some poster board. While looking at the different colors of poster board, Mylea goes "uh-oh". I look up and she has opened the shampoo with her teeth and pour it all over her arms and legs (thinking that it was lotion). I take off to find some wipes. As I begin to clean her up, she has so much shampoo on her that the wipes cause it to suds up. After half a box of wipes, she is finally cleaned up enough to check out and get on our way.

Welcome to a day in my life. Anyone want to switch places for a day? I promise that it would be a very entertaining experience.

So funny! I really enjoyed reading this post. Now I don't feel like I'm the only one that has these off the wall experiences.
