Does this sort of thing happen to you, too?

{IG name: adrielbooker}

This is us… all clean and showered after three pee incidents two poop incidents on five different areas of the floor in four different rooms of the house within the space of five minutes.

How, you ask? How is this even possible?

I have absolutely no idea. (Don’t even get me started…)

And let me also mention that all of this took place before 8:00am on a morning where Ryan just “happened” to leave for work early.

Most mornings this lil night owl wants to crawl back into bed… but days like this I want to crawl back into yesterday. (At least they’re having some fun. Right?)

Dear friends, tell me I’m not alone?

    Sadly, no, and I only have one little. Don’t even get me started on how our dog heads straight to eat the poo if I don’t beat her to it…

    you are not alone. i had a morning similar in natura yesterday, in fact. and it produced the same feeling: can i crawl back to yesterday, please? or fast-forward to bedtime?

    While I am quite envious of all the little mother’s out there with their precious babies – this is not something that I miss. Good Luck. You are not alone and it will get better.

    Not alone! I’ve been holing up in my house all week. My kid is sick, whining like crazy, having pee accidents in my hand and on my hip when I’m holding her….we had an insane Target tantrum and I don’t usually mind stuff like that but, this was extra horrific….I feel yah!! I sent the hubby out tonight with my kiddo just to get an hour of me time before I went crazy:). Good luck!

      oh girl. i’m sorry!! it’s good to know others “in the trenches” with us! i sent my husband out a few nights ago too. he got home from work and i just said – “here, take the kids. get dinner somewhere. anywhere. i don’t care – just GO. i need an hour alone!!” he gladly took them to mcdonalds and brought me back a cheeseburger.

      works for me. 😉

      it’s a good thing our littles are so. dang. cute.
