All That's Missing Is The Yellow Caution Tape.

We all know that losing one's shit is a common occurence here in the M household. After the day that I had yesterday, I thought I'd share with you the following. They say that the "proof is in the pudding," although I beg to differ. I say "the proof is in the pictures."
It all started when Carter woke up at 3am and decided it was time to play. In our bed. A veritable parental jungle gym of sorts. Parents who were trying to desperately hang onto their sleep.
And it only got worse throughout the day, as Carter refused to nap, tired and crankily bumping into wall after step after wall. Crying, whining, fussing, clinging. It was just one of those days.
It culminated at the precise second that Carter decided to pull himself up on the wooden gate that we normally secure between the couch and the wall, preventing him from playing in the dog's water dish. Not only did he pull himself up on it, but he also decided he would play Tarzan and shake it violently.
The next thing I know? Both the gate and Carter are rocketing towards the hardwoods at an alarming pace. I hurdle over the dishwasher and manage to scoop C up just before colliding with the ground. Score one for Super Mom.
I also managed to get my foot caught up in the floor length curtains, entangling myself and yanking the both the curtain rod and hook straight out of the wall. C'mon. You wish you were this awesome.
Curtain rod: 1
Super Mom: 0
Here's what The Husband came home to last night. Thankfully, he came bearing both flowers and margarita mix. Now that's what I call love.

Just another day in the M house.
Happy Thursday, Loyals.
Is it Happy Hour yet?

  1. Are you sure you dont live in my house, as it looks very similar?

  2. Wow! What a day! Hopefully the rest of the week goes better for the both of you.

  3. Oh my! What a day for you, but score one for hubby! Love all the barricades! Believe me I know and they just get sneakier and sneakier too. Mia was in one of those special moods last night :)

    Hope today is better!

    Happy day before Friday!

  4. Impressive! And yay for hubs that come home with pretty things and alcohol!

    Like I said last night, at least it wasn't poop art!

  5. Haha, I'm sorry I'm laughing, but the mental picture is too funny. Glad you managed to save C though, and yay for the husband bringing home booze and flowers!

  6. im thankful that other houses look like mine.

  7. I bet the hubs looked like a knight in shining armor walking through the door with flowers and cocktail mix :)

  8. flowers and margarita mix is an awesome combo! add in some chorizo cheese dip and YUM!

  9. Must have been something going on yesterday... I had a very similar day with my neice & nephew. Yikes! It seemed liked every mess I went to clean up they made a bigger one in the meantime! At one point they both were shoving toilet paper in the toilet and swishing it around with their hands! Ohmigod! Sosososo gross! I've been telling my SIL her house isn't baby proofed enough...

    Oh, and my dog did that same exact thing with my bedroom curtains last week! Apparently he likes to lay VERY close to the wall. Damnit.

    Here's to a better Thursday and not losing out shit! ;o) Ha!

  10. My house is a war zone and my baby's not even mobile yet!!! Don't know what it will look like once she's tearing things down all over the place! PS really like your MA&C letters!!! :)

  11. Haha. I love this. Sounds like quite the eventful day. Kudos to the hubby for knowing exactly what you needed after that. :)

  12. You earned that alcohol for sure! Oh, and as for the makeshift boundaries, they don't work. I don't know why I bother. Carter's a smart kid, he'll figure out how to circumvent anything you put up, I guarantee it. I'm pretty much ready to take the baby gate down in the living room for Tommy. The fact that he can climb up on the couch alone, means he'll be over the gate soon enough. Don't want him to get hurt trying it, so I'm thinking it needs to go!

  13. I'm a new follower! I just have to say my house has just as many misplaced items and my baby is only 2 months old! :) Hope you enjoyed the margarita's & that your week goes easier.

  14. Hehehe, I can just picture you grabbing Carter at the last second as he's about to fall!

  15. Didn't I teach you... ALWAYS blame it on the dog... It was Sheepie that must've pulled down that curtain....

    Like I would do with Mom...

    "It had to be the dog that used your favorite imported Italian linen dinner napkin to clean up that paint spill..." Or,

    "It had to be the dog that must've taken your favorite passion-busting ratty sweatsuit you always wear to bed and hid it..." Permanently!!!

    I'm a failure... Hee, hee hee...


  16. That is hilarious (not to make too much fun of your misfortune). I totally see it out of a horror movie with C shaking the gate like a wild monkey at the zoo.

    Well those extra glasses of wine last night are totally justified now.
