Today is one of those days where I truly struggle to be a good Mom to my kids. Amelia is a very high energy child. She generally needs to be constantly engaged in something or she finds trouble, and she finds it quickly.

I have 37 things I need/want to get done today, some laundry, scrubbing my kitchen floors, etc, but seriously I cannot get anything done. Every time I turn my back she is into something else. Or she's trying to beat up her brother, or she's running off with my cell phone trying to call Daddy, or she's hitting me or she's throwing things at the TV, or she is smearing hand soap all over the TV, or she's taking the gate down to let Ant into the kitchen. (This all happened in a one hour span today.) So I'm sitting at my computer taking a break. I told Amelia I was putting myself in time out. :-)

Now she's trying to figure out how to get the screen door unlocked so she can let her brother outside. So, I'm going to turn on a movie, put Anthony down for a nap and go sit on the couch and snuggle my kid. Hopefully Jeff will understand why the house isn't much cleaner now than it was when he left this morning, and there are only 2 loads of laundry done. If not, he can stay home with them tomorrow and I'll go work in the IT department. I bet it's easy compared to being home all day with my children!! LOL
