I've been in Arizona all week on a solo mission with my kids visiting my parents. It's been cold, and rainy, but it's been fun. There was a meltdown here and there but all in all the kids have been great, so have my parents 🤫. But today I think we all hit our limit, at least I did. My six year old has a tude like he's a teenager, and woke up with a cankersore and a cold. It's as if the world is ending. My 3 yr old has literally only eaten Cheerios, life cereal, crackers and ice cream since we have been here. When he asked for a snack right after breakfast today I told him he could have a banana, apple or applesauce. He asked for yogurt so I said ok, then just as I opened the yogurt he said he didn't like said yogurt (yet hadn't or wouldn't try it). He threw a mega tantrum that he just wanted crackers, like balls to the wall didnt stop crying for a half hour, at least, tantrum. I finally got him to eat an apple and leave for the days activity. He fell asleep within five minutes of us leaving the house and was still sleeping when we got to Party Jungle, the indoor amusement park we were headed to. My parents took my older one in and I waited for the little one to wake up. Oh he woke up! To him peeing himself! I obviously did not have a change of clothes. So he's hysterical, I'm wearing my mom's puffy vest , thankfully or I'd be soaked, and I scoop him up and run into the Goodwill that's in the shopping center. My kiddo will not wear anything but PJs so we wind up with 2 new pair of PJ pants and a used pair of undies that are 3 sizes to big on him. I carry him to the bathroom like a dirty diaper and get him changed just to realize his shirt is wet too, but he refused to get a new t shirt. So he's in used gigantic undies, spaceship PJ pants and a Batman hooded sweatshirt with a cape on it and nothing underneath. Yes at some point he does unzip it inside the playspace. As if it could get any worse I get my you know what right after I change his clothes in the bathroom at Goodwill. 🤦♀️ TMI? Sorry 🤷♀️. This painting is all I could think of of because the things we do for love, yeesh.
