Chaos, everywhere we go my kids and I bring chaos. I have to be honest though, I myself have always brought chaos. My mother has always said the minute I walk into a room the chaos starts (or something similar to that). I guess it’s because I’m just so high strung. My poor parents were the recipients of our chaos tonight. I thought it would be such a simple, calm visit. All we were doing was taking my mom a necklace someone had made for her and going to see a cake she was working on. I thought we’d visit for a bit and be little distraction. Instead we completely turned their night upside down.
My little boy is easy, poor kid actually gets overlooked a lot because he is so quiet compared to his sister. L just sat and watched tv in the kitchen, every once in a while asking Memaw a question about cakes or looking for something to eat. M however is a totally different story. She is my wild child. She immediatly clung to her Memaw, didn’t want anything to do with anyone else. Bad part was Memaw was trying to finish the cake she was decorating. M also discovered the water cooler. She was obsessed with putting water in a glass but then not drinking it. She also screams, if she doesn’t get exactly what she wants she screams. Most of the time its not even a cry, just a scream. It’s very unnerving.
My sister and her husband also came over, as did my grandparents. With all of us in the same two rooms you could not even hear yourself think. I’m not sure I finished a conversation with anyone, of course in the midst of all of this I was also showing my grandmother how to work iTunes. By the time the kids and I left I was just apologizing to my mother for the chaotic night we had just had. She of course seemed unfazed, as always. I however was about ready to have a melt down.
I guess I just need to get used to the chaos that we bring, especially considering that we will soon have a 3rd child here.
