Seriously Universe?

I feel like the universe reached down and gave me a great big smack in the face today. The morning started out perfectly with Mike letting me sleep in a little as he often does but it all went down hill from there. I’m not certain about the exact minute at which the universe reached down with its frigid palm to lay the smack firmly against my blistering cheek but I know that it did. Violet had some immunizations for the first time today and even though we did not do all the “recommended” shots we still did some of them and they made her a BEAR! That little diva was not impressed about the cruelty we forced her to endure and she professed this to me throughout the day with her irritability. Score one for the universe and zero for Mama Melissa…

After lunch Jacob needed his pull up changed and I asked him if he wanted to try under wear instead (since he had already dropped his poop earlier in the day…pleasant)..and much to my surprise he said he did want to wear under wear – Score one for Mama Melissa right? Wrong…I asked him several times to tell me when he needed to go pee in the toilet and he continuously reassured me that he would and about 20 seconds after I asked him for the fifth time if he needed to go pee…..he peed all over the floor right at my feet…Oh universe how you mock me! While I was on my hands and knees cleaning urine from our parquet floors Jacob got into Violet’s diaper bag and helped himself to the infant tylenol within and with his houdini dictator magic skills he was able to release the child proof lid (that took me ten minutes to open earlier in the day I might add) and poured the tylenol all over himself and a portion of my brand new couch. Keeping score? Mama Melissa 0 – Universe 3…..I spend the next 20 minutes cleaning up urine and tylenol (thankfully it all came out of my couch)…I breathe a huge sigh of relief to finally have some peace and quiet because Jacob is quietly playing in his room AND…entire the diva stage left. I had not even sat down for a moment to enjoy a glass of water and a little internet surfing and Violet is awake needing to be fed…

Somehow, I manage to get dinner on the table….but not before shattering one of our water glasses all over the kitchen floor. Mmhmm…..at this point I’m biting my lip with much agony and it isn’t until 1030 pm that I finally get some relief from the universe….the house is disorganized and frankly…

I don’t care….
