Today was a mixture of okay stuff and annoyances.
I took the girls to story time for the first time and they had a blast. I think the last time I was there Iris was maybe 18 months old and was a lunatic. We ran in to a friend which was really nice, as well.
Oh! And there was a mama next to us with two little girls and her little one was being so crabby and was trying to whack kids over the head. I was SO HAPPY to see another child acting this way. I thought it was only mine who did that! Whew!
Eloise didn't nap today. It wasn't so bad because she was out like a light at 8:3o instead of battling with her until 10:30. We went to pick up our car from the auto body place and it is really nice to have our car back. I *only* had to shell out close to $600 for everything today. Zoinks.
We walked to our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner since Matt is at a Mariner's game tonight. We got take out and walked to a park to eat. It was all down hill from there. Heidi's leash was looped around the handle of the stroller and she pulled the whole thing over, with Iris in it. Oh geez. I was so mad at Heidi, but really mad at myself for leaving her like that and walking away. What was I thinking!?! Heidi was being a little shit at the park, too. I let her off the leash so she could run around and she just flipped out and raced around and would NOT come back. It's annoying having a dog who won't come after having the most well-behaved dog ever with Lily. I swear Heidi has hit her terrible twos or something. She has been so sassy lately! We are working with her, though, slowly but surely.
On the way home Iris freaking LOST IT over Eloise taking her mug of water that she wasn't even paying attention to. I got so mad. I was like, WTF?!?! It's a mug of water! That you weren't even looking at! And we had quite the struggle. But, the girls are both in bed now, and have been for a while. So I'm resting. My days without Matt are always long.
I swear, I should just put my voice on tape recorder for Iris:
"Please don't hit your sister"
"Please don't hit the dog"
"That is absolutely unacceptable, we do NOT hit the dog"
"If you hit your sister again, you're going to have to go to time out"
"Did you hear what I just said?!"
