The Score – Bugaboo – 3; Mommy – 0 (or maybe 1)

Have you ever had one of those days?  I came home exhausted from the longest day of work ever.  After picking up both children, I made the executive decision that it would be TV dinners for supper. I fixed supper amidst whining that I wasn’t moving fast enough.  After both children were seated at the table with supper in front of them, I decided it was safe to go to the bathroom and finally get out of these wretched pantyhose (what sadist invented these things anyway?)

Crash —- Boom —- MOMMY!!!!!!

I race back to the kitchen to find that Bugaboo decided he didn’t want his corn. Instead of just ignoring it, he threw the entire plate on the floor.  Unfortunately Tallie dog doesn’t like corn any better than Bugaboo.  As I was sweeping the corn up, Bugaboo decided to chuck his juice cup at my head too.  I’d really love for someone to invent a truly spill-proof cup; because I’ve not found one yet that can withstand the force of a two year old.  I calmly said, “NO” — okay, who am I kidding? — I yelled NO and put Bugaboo in time out.  He promptly escaped and made a beeline for the trashcan. As I raced after him, I slipped on the juice and wrenched my knee.  He flipped the trash can on its side.

Score – Bugaboo 3; Mommy 0.

Or maybe I should get 1 point. After all I did manage to restrict my language to “Crap” instead of the plethora of other words that filtered through my brain.

Lucky for Bugaboo he’s cute.

    I’m convinced that’s why God made kids so cute — so we wouldn’t kill them.

    Way to not kill anyone.

    I’m sorry – I’m sure it must have been very frustrating, but I was laughing my head off as I read this!! 🙂 Too bad it wasn’t taped. That could have earned you some money on America’s Funniest Home Videos!! (I hope you weren’t hurt, though – falling right onto a kneecap can cause damage!)
