kids kids kids

Well I feel like all I write about are my kids, but thats what I do and who I am with 90% of the time. Most of the time they are easy to be with but sometimes I have seriously considered selling them on Craigs List. SERIOUSLY! Today was an especially warm day so I decided to get out our little blow up pool and play outside. That lasted about an hour and 45min of it was me taking toys away from Cale because he was using them to dump water on his poor sister.

I have been trying a new (kinda new) thing with them limiting TV time and doing more activities before we are stuck inside most of the day because of the heat. They weren't watching that much before but I felt like it was too much (how much is too much?)
And so far the table and tile has crayon all over it. Every toy bin is dumped out and my house is totally trashed (I'll pick it up later there's no sense in doing it now) The morning trip to the park ended in a full out tantrum, and playing with the little water pirate ship outside consisted of cale drenching me with the hose and laughing hysterically then squirting the screen door getting water all over the house.

Needless to say I haven't showered today or really sat down, except to write this post, and Im not trying to write about how terrible my kids are (cause they're not there pretty good most of the time) I am just writing because everyone has THOSE DAYS and today was one of mine. A lot of times on blogs people write or post about all the positive things and happy times,which is good, you don't want to dwell on the bad, but I think its good to let people know that some days just suck and sometimes kids are just hard!

PS I am looking for good ideas of things to do inside with little ones
