I got up and did the best I could to get the kids to school. Thank goodness they were all angels this morning! I know that in itself is a miracle. I should have known nothing good was going to follow. I called off work! I don't want to share my germs, and I am positive they don't want them either. I cancelled my dentist appointment. I prepared to rest.
I set up my 4 year old and went to lay down. HA HA HA! Surprise, crazy drama going on and your working from home today! I should explain, I often work from home. That was quick and easy! I am very blessed with that luxury. So I spend my morning miserable working from home, taking care of my 4 year old, and puppy. Nothing abnormal there except did I fail to mention I feel like death!
Finally, I can relax. It is 1:00 pm! The day is over half done. Relax! What the heck is that? The world had other plans and I might as well give in. So I decide forget it. I'm up and I need shower BAD!
So I tell my 4 year old I am stinky and going to take a shower, and he must be good. He thinks he needs a bath because he is stinky too. Never mind he already had a bath today! Oh, NO! FYI, a 4 year old cannot take a bath while mommy showers and no one else is home! I am sure you didn't need me to explain that but I'm a talker. So after a lengthy argument with my 4 year old. And, Yes, I am the parent. And for those of you who just thought that, you don't have kids do you? Or its been a long time since yours was 4!
So yes after a lengthy argument with my 4 year old. I said this "If you don't sit down and watch Paw Patrol while I shower I will spank your butt!" Now for those of you grabbing the phone to report this abuse, hold on. I would never never never spank my child for not watching TV! That is insane! But he doesn't know that does he??? In fact there are very few occasions I would spank my child for.
Was it right? Was it wrong? Doesn't matter! Bottom line mommy needed a shower! For a number of reasons. One, I am pretty sure I was very very stinky and two I was hoping and praying it would help me feel better.
So I took my shower and YAY! He stayed on the couch watching tv. Or at least I think he did. He was there when I went into the shower and there when I got out! LOL
So all in all a success!
