Grrrrrrr I know I said that I wanted kids, hell I practically begged for them! But lately all I want to do is bang my head against the wall and leave!!! I am having such a hard time dealing with my little 20 month old girl's constant need for attention and temper tantrums. I am being completely literal when I say constant. I am unable to get up from the couch to make something to eat, talk on the phone, tend to the other baby, go on the computer...anything without my little girl having a major flare up. She throws herself on the ground and screams and screams and screams! I don't know what to do. I can't ignore it or else I'll go nuts. My instinct is to yell, yell, yell but obviously that doesn't fact Mr. Wonderful is insisting that it does more bad than good. I know but I can't stop myself. The only thing that makes her stop screaming is putting her in her room but I seem to be doing that 90 times a day! Is she really learning anything????

I'm at my wits end. This behavior has got to stop before I go insane.

Guilty pleasures

I have something that I just have to get off my chest. Be warned that you may be shocked. Are you sitting? goes...I know I should really be embarrassed by this and at the very least shunned by my friends and family...but I have to admit, yes, I love tacky Christmas sweaters.

There. I said it. It's so liberating!!

In a perfect world, or in my little world, I envision my loved ones sitting around the Christmas dinner table, lights dimmed, good cheer in the air, nice aromas, white smiles! Each of us wearing coordinating reindeer, or santa, or snowman cable knit sweaters. Alright, I'm going a bit overboard. They wouldn't necessarily have to be coordinating. Like, really...that would be so nerdish!

Believe it or not - Christmas sweaters for the family are very difficult to find! I may have to do the unthinkable and knit them! GASP!!! Wait a minute...what am I talking about? This is the 21st century. I should hire someone to knit them! :-)

total silence

This is brutal! I thought for sure that blogging would come naturally to me, but I honestly can't think of anything to talk about. I could talk about my two days in Vegas. That was incredible! We saw the Lion King - absolutely amazing. I could talk about how my baby is hanging off my leg right now and not actually letting me type...oops, there go my pj bottoms!!!

Ok, this is not going to work. I better get back to my parenting gig! I will type more later when something happens. Like maybe I'll actually have some free time!! hahahha
