Being a mommy SUCKS sometimes...

Suck it! I know I have become "one of those people" who "HAS a blog" but never posts anything new on it... WELL...
I guess I better catch up!
I have TONS of excuses but today I am going to tell you a story that will make you feel sorry for me so I won't have to go through my list of excuses...
Today yesterday was a normal day... get the kids up, fed, dressed, teeth and hair brushed... you know. Story of my life. But today I was motivated to WORK OUT! I have not been motivated because of sickness lately (yes pregnancy sickness and kids being sick and ME being sick) HOWEVER... I has been 2 weeks since I worked out. So I started my day off right!
So I am working out on the elliptical machine.  A few minutes after I start two guys (possibly a little older than me) start working out next to me. One on each side. There are PLENTY of other elliptical machines but they choose to be RIGHT BY ME. I feel them looking at me... it was a little awkward to say the least. So I finish my 30 minute workout... (2.54 miles 245 calories burned... not bad for this prego right?) So I walk over to the wall to get the spray and paper towels to wipe down my equipment. As I am wiping it down one of the boys asks me if he can ask me a question. I kinda try to act like I did not hear him, but he asks again so I look at him and smile. He says "My buddy here and I can't figure something out... are you pregnant or just fat?" My mouth drops open and I look down at my belly wondering HOW COULD I JUST LOOK FAT AT THIS POINT... I answer... "Thank you for asking... I am pregnant." So the other boy gets off and says "See I told you pregnant people can still work out... she was not fat." SO they had this DEBATE and decided to some work out next to me to try to figure it out... THEN the guy who thinks I am Fat is determined to know because OBVIOUSLY I must look fat... thanks... no complex here at all...
So I move onto the stairs machine in utter dismay and try to move on with my life... about 5 minutes into that workout I hear over the intercom "Can Melissa Bird please come to the day care center..." AHHHHHHH
REALLY LANDON?
So Landon did not want to share so he hit a kid and I had to put him on time out and SUCH IS MY LIFE..." I hit up the showers and get Landon and GO HOME..
I plan my Y.W. activity for the night... make dinner... make cookies for the girls... do the activity... go home... SLEEP.
THE NEXT DAY started off normal too... (that would be today)
However just after lunch I get a call from the School Nurse. "Hailey had an accident... can you please bring her a change of clothes to school."
Pack little man up... grab change of clothes... head to school... hit up nurses office and run into her Teacher's Aid... she tells me the story. They were playing at recess and Hailey was in line to play wall ball or something and all of the sudden she runs for the bathroom... only not to make it in time... AND it was numba 2... watery numba 2... she wont come out so her friends get the Teachers Aid and LUCKILY none of her friends have ANY idea what was wrong...
So I take Landon in the bathroom with me and I am thankful I am past the first trimester of pregnancy because I was gagging the WHOLE time. Hailey was gagging... Landon was gagging... they were BOTH saying things REALLY loud in the bathroom and I KNEW the people outside we just LAUGHING at the conversation going on... Poor Girl said "Mommy I am so sorry... don't be mad at me... it came too fast and I am not a fast enough runner!" I decided this was embarrassing enough for the poor girl that I was not going to make her feel bad about it... Like someone WANTS to have an accident at school...
After about 30 minutes of cleaning her off... down the leg... ugh... GLAD I BROUGHT SOCKS TOO... I take her back to class.
There is only 45 minutes until I have to pick her up at this point so I take Landon to the local playground where he picks up my spirits and makes me laugh. I text my brother about the incident and he gets a good laugh then I call my mom and tell her about my HORRIBLE day...
Sometimes it SUCKS being a mommy!! AM I RIGHT??
So now I sit here telling you my story because I am PRAYING my husband gets home soon... he had to work until about 3 then left at 5 for a school meeting not to be back until AFTER 9... the new Twilight movie is out tonight and I would LOVE to go... but who knows if I will make it...
I think two bad days in a row is calls for a good movie with friends right?? I will have to let you know... :)

Ugh! You have had quite the two days. I'm glad you got to go see the movie!! A friend of mine asked if I had seen it and I wanted to slap my forehead and say "oh snap...I knew I forgot something..." LOL. I'll see it eventually, just to get some "closure" on the movie side of things.

Did you tell the two guys at the gym that they were incredibly rude? I am the only one who can ask if you are pregnant....and I would NEVER ask anyone if they were pregnant or fat....that's just wrong!
