Vaya Tarde / What Afternoon

Yo no sé si mis niñas presentían que Pablo llegaría tarde hoy de trabajar o fue el exceso de agua (sí, por que tomaron muchísima agua) lo que las puso super inquietas. La mañana transcurrió "normal", una que otra pelea entre ellas pero, nada del otro mundo. Luego, de cenar se pusieron incontrolables. Tirando cosas, peleando, corriendo, gritando, etc. Yo les busqué alternativas pero, nada pareció funcionar. Ya al final yo estaba rendida y me fuí a trabajar con la mercancía nueva para Etsy. Error, fue peor. Luego, de enviarlas a su cuarto todo pareció que se normalizaría. Ellas se fueron a jugar y en eso sonó el teléfono (no hay nada más oportuno para un niño hacer travesuras que cuando mami habla por teléfono). Así que como suele suceder, allí ocurrió la travesura. Paola se fue a jugar al armario del cuarto familiar y no sé como, la puerta se cayó. Lo mejor de todo es que aterrizó con mi computadora (menos mal que no rompió el monitor por que tenía una pantalla protectora que dicho sea de paso sí se rompió y me enteré en ese momento que era de cristal,ja).

Gracias a Dios, después de el gran acontecimiento a los 15 minutos llegó Pablo (8:15 p.m) y allí mismo terminé de recojer y le dije me voy a bañar y no quiero hablar ni con mi mamá (necesitaba esos 5 minutos a solas).

Mañana espero que sea un día mejor.

I do not know if my girls felt that Pablo would arrive late today from work or was the excess of water (yes, because they were drinking a lot of water) what made them hyper. The morning elapsed "normal", some fights between them but, nothing out of the normal. Then, after dinner they were uncontrollable. Throwing things, fighting, running, shouting, etc. I looked for alternatives but, nothing seemed to work. At the end I gave up and decided to work with the new merchandise for our Etsy store. Mistake, It got worse. After I sent them to their room all seemed that it would be normalized. They went to play and then the telephone rang(there is no better chance for a kid to do mischiefs that when mommy is at the telephone). So as it is used to happen, the mischief occurred. Paola went to play at the family room's closet and I do not know how, the door fell. The best of all is that it landed on my computer (at least it did not break the monitor because it had a protective screen that by the way, it broke and I founf out just then that it was made of glass, ha).

Thanks God, after the great event happened Pablo arrived about 15 minutes (8:15 p.m) and I finished cleaning up the mess and told him I am going to bathe and I do not want to speak to anyone not even with my mom (I really needed those 5 minutes alone).

Tomorrow I expect it to be a better day.

Oh man! Those days/afternoons happen to the best of us. It almost seems that the twins know that they have us outnumbered. Ha!

I hope you enjoyed your time alone and I hope you have a better day tomorrow!

Oh that sucks! But at least no one got hurt, :) That would have been my reaction too, probably with a lot of swear words thrown in though, lol

Steph said...

Hope that tomorrow is much better! Even your sweet girls have their days. Ahhh off to break up my own girls screaming at each other!

monica said...

I hope you got your undistrubed shower! Afternoon's like that can be bad and then the closet door falling is not good...funny how it happened twice though.

It will get better. The joys of being a mom - we definitely can have those kind of days. A hot bath was a great choice - that helps!

Wow, it's never fun when they get crazy like that. My two are getting cabin fever from being inside thanks to all the rain. I can't wait for some sunshine!

Hang in there, Annie. I have been having those days as well. It just all gets to you after a while. I ended up locking myself in my room the other day, just to get some sanity. But I still had the kids knocking at my door wondering why I was in my room by myself!! ugh!!!

Have a wonderful rest of the week.
