My stress level has reached an all time high. John Riley has discovered an exciting new activity .. turning the water on in my bath tub, finding anything that will retain that water and gleefully splashing it everywhere. With this, an island has formed just off the coast of Will You Please Take a Nap .. in the What the Hell - I JUST Cleaned That Up Sea outside of the How in the World Did you find Another Cup Ocean .. I felt so confident in my ability to hide anything that could hold water, but apparently I failed. I have been sopping water up every other time I turn my back for three weeks now. I am constantly washing towels. Well, why don't you close doors you might ask? I do. Between the two children, I am defeated. John Riley is climbing on everything. In my mind, I am racing around the house saving John Riley from certain death on the tile floor while feeding them and cleaning. However, it looks as if nothing has been done.
Most days, I can not get a moment of peace. I did not have a shower today .. I had to settle for a bath that was ruined shortly after beginning. I set the kids up with juices and a cartoon. Just when I thought everything was cool, I had unwanted company. Kayla needed to jump in there with me as John Riley threw leftover pieces of his rice crispy treat in the tub. Kayla said that she was dirty and smelled of mushrooms. Therefore, it was imperative that I allow her to bathe with me. She couldn't wait. She couldn't go in her own bath tub. The alleged mushroom stench attacking her body was out of control and needed to be diffused in no other bath besides mine at any other time. Nice.
