My Life As A Sitcom

So, I had a conference call with my work from 3:30-4:30 today. As I rushed home from picking up the 1st grader, I gave the usual threats instructions.

"Stay upstairs. Play with the babies. No yelling, hitting, touching, pinching, flushing anything down the toilet, putting anyone in the toilet or peeing on the rug. If you don't listen I will kill you, maim you ,spank you, be very angry."

Just as I am dialing the number for the call, I hear a scream and a "Mommy is going to be so mad at me!"

Well, that's never a good sign! Up the stairs I run, to find the largest glass of chocolate milk (which I don't know WHY it was upstairs to begin with) you have ever seen...spilled all over the rug.

As I run for a towel, a scream comes from downstairs. "What now?" I scream calmly ask. Bailey yells, "Lukey just dumped Avery's potty on the rug. It was A LOT of pee!"


Needless to say, the kids did not behave during the call. Thank goodness for the mute button!
