An extra toothy grin

Oh yeah, this morning Damon was telling me that he has his first loose tooth. I looked in there and *GASP* there are 2 rows of teeth there! His adult teeth are coming through behind his baby teeth. I feel like a negligent mom for not noticing earlier, but he didn't mention anything, and he brushes his teeth well on his own.

Kathy, that's an excellent suggestion, after I drop the boys off at the Hamilton Bulldog's game, I'm coming home, putting Kira to sleep and sucking back a bottle of red wine. Forget all the catching up on housework that I planned to do. :-D
If you have been reading my recent posts, you can probably tell that I've been feeling a tad overwhelmed. Or maybe I am depressed. Or maybe it is just that I am ready for the end of what has seemed like a long winter and I am thinking of hibernating until it is over. I'm not sure.

Things have been crazy here lately with Matt gone all the time, getting a new puppy, and just the regular chaos of life with 4 BUSY children. I'm usually more of a glass-is-half-full type, but for the past 2 weeks, my glass has been bone dry.

Spring is just around the corner and I am hoping that as usual I will bounce right back.

Can I quit?

My back aches from lugging around hockey gear, backpacks full of homework, babies, dogs, groceries. My throat hurts from screaming. My jaw hurts from clenching it. My brain hurts from trying to outwit an 7 year old evil genious.

I had to stay away from the group of moms at hockey who were busy perusing travel magazines, because I might have inadvertently killed one of them. They were all able to sip coffee and read magazines while their extra child (they have 2 boys each) sat and nicely played with yu-gi-oh cards or something. Instead I plucked my boys off of the rafters about 9 times, said 'no' to various requests about 1500 times, lost a child or two about 7 times and chased Kira around for about 6 miles.

I'm losing it here.

Calgon take me away

I decided to leave Puck in his big crate when we went out shopping this morning. Big mistake. I came home to SHIT everywhere! No joke, EVERYWHERE. I walked in the front door and the smell hit me. UGH.

I still can't get that smell out of my head.

Kira has been miserable today. I'm wondering if she is coming down with something. Just when we were all healthy again. OF COURSE she is coming down with something.

The boys are all so tired tonight. They are constantly attacking each other. I let them have a snowball fight in the backyard in hopes that they would blow off some steam. Big mistake. Campbell ended up coming in screaming because Damon had found some cat poo on the snow (STRAY cat poo - ewwwwww), and used the shovel to whip it at his head.

Can somebody please tell Kira to STOP tearing things off of the bookshelves? She is always throwing the videos on the floor, but today she is ripping off photo albums, our art books and history books. ARGHHHHH. I tell her 'no', but apparently I'm funny when I say that. Puck is cowering under my chair, but Kira thinks it is hilarious.

Matt is in NYC this week. He was getting dropped off at the hotel and the bellhop came to help with the bags and shut the door and the cab immediately took off. Matt had set his envelope full of documents, including his plane ticket and his passport on the seat. The driver didn't see Matt trying to chase him down. The cab company says they don't know what they can do, but they will take his information down and call if they find it. On top of that the company forgot to send some of the stuff he needs to do this installation, so this won't be a fun week for him either.

I'm just waiting for the day to end.
