One of those mornings

*One child awake two hours earlier than usual.
*Two children awake 1.5 hours early.
*One cup of milk splattered everywhere.  Including the couch, 'cause we live in a tiny place and the couch is right next to the table.
*One cup of hot chocolate spilled all over the floor when an older sister was attempting to share with a younger brother.
*Two beastly cockroaches smashed and discarded.  Thanks to my heroic husband!
*One child's skinned elbow, knee and hip cleaned and bandaged.  After she went running with her daddy ('cause she was up 2 hours early).

All before 8am?!

Now we are headed across town to get a x-ray of Oliver's pinky finger that was smashed over the weekend.

Do you know what that all means?  Today is going to only get better!  (Half my floor has been freshly mopped!)  Seriously, it's going to be awesome.  I am determined that today will be an awesome day!

Okay, make that 2 cups of spilled milk...


  1. You can definitely only go up for there. I completely sympathize on the cockroaches. I walk around the kitchen with my toes curled now -- as though that is going to keep one from running over my foot.

  2. Yikes...but way to have a good attitude about it! Today will be a good day!

  3. Hi Kiasa! This is Brian's cousin Robyn, Cathy's daughter. I read "Nat the Fat Rat's" blog and saw your name in the comment section and clicked on it to see if it was you and it was! I am adding your blog to my bookmarks. I am obsessed with New York City, I've only been there once, but it was the best 4 days of any trip I've ever been on in my life. I love the city and love reading about how people live in it with kids. My mom just sent me a video that Spencer (I think it was Spencer) about Hurricane Irene and I loved it so much, I went through all his other videos and loved watching "Summer Streets" and his bike rides through NYC. Hope all is well and tell the family I said hello! Maybe someday Dave and I will get to come back and you can give us a real tour of the city that doesn't involve a red bus, ha!
