friday the 13th came early

So, we had to wake the kids up early this morning because I had to drive Jason to work so I could have the car today. Wouldn't you know that waking kids up early is a horrible, horrible idea. They both threw huge fits. So I dropped Jason off, drove back home (1 hour total), grabbed a bunch of food and delivered it for a Relief Society luncheon, then I went straight to a visiting teaching appointment (still with kids) and proceeded to lock my keys in the car. Once AAA took care of it and I got back home, Evie refused to take a nap (and I don't give in to crying very easily). Instead, while I was changing her diaper, she grabbed a handful of poop, and while I was cleaning her hand off, she put both legs in it and got it all over my hands. But it doesn't end there! While I was simply bringing a load of laundry upstairs, Dallin peed through his pants all over the kitchen floor and Evie played in it, soaking her clothes in urine. Unbelievable. I would say that's the end of it, but I don't dare because it's only 3:30, lots of time left for more to go wrong. Heaven help me and my desire to have a big family.

One good highlight (sort of):

After all this I went in the bathroom to wipe Dallin and he said "Mom, you're a good Mom." "And a good wiper."

Wow - what a day!!!! But - take a compliment where you can get it - they don't come along too often. Even if it is that you are a good wiper! That's awesome!
