I guess this is now my place to vent. I really should be posting happy pictures of my kids and family. Sadly I'm not that happy. My kids drive me bananas. The oldest is the epitome of procrastination. He had 10 days off school (counting weekends). I asked him last night if all his homework was done so he would be prepared for school today and his answer was not yet. I'm like really? I guess in his defense he did clean up some of his room. But seriously? You can't finish your homework in 10 days off school. Then I got a call from him this morning as I was driving to daycare asking to bring his book which he forgot. I refused. Sorry, harsh realities of life. You don't prepare your stuff the night before I ain't fixing it for you. Then the 4 year old is living up to her age. She didn't get to sleep last night until 10pm which is the norm because the daycare refuses to follow my direction about naps. I know she's a handful but she needs to be nap free in a few months for kindergarten. I'm going to really put my foot down by her birthday. So this makes for a very long night for all of us. The baby is fine except when it comes to about 2 in the morning and all of the sudden she's crying. I'm not understanding it at all. We feed her right before bed so why the constant waking up? She's 8 months and should be able to sleep through the night. The funny thing is that from about 2 until 4:40 in the morning I'm up with her constantly. Yet as soon as I get out of the shower and start getting ready for work both she and the 4 year old are fast asleep and it takes me forever to wake them.
Then this morning I get to work finally and find out that one the Project Managers hasn't followed policy for something and it just really makes me look bad. The training for this was months ago and should already be in place. Ugh.
What's the date today? Oh yeah, pms is in full swing, no wonder the annoyance at everyone and everything today. I need a t-shirt made as a warning. Ok, venting over for the moment but I can't guarantee it for very long.
