Déjà Vu

Do you ever feel like you are living in the movie Groundhog’s Day? No? Well I feel that my entire life the past year has been the theme of that movie.  Day in and day out I go through the exact same thing OVER AND OVER AGAIN!  It never changes.  Just one day I hope for a change but it never happens. The boys fight all day long, every single day, non-stop.  I can’t get it to end!  I understand that kids, especially siblings, fight alot but this is getting out of hand.

Why can’t they be more like this:


And less like this:


Yesterday was one of those days that you just want to erase and forget all about. Please tell me that you all have those days. The scary part is, I know that it’s going to happen all over again tomorrow. You know from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep that it’s going to be torture.  I thought it was going to be okay because Owen slept all night and only woke up around 5:45 am for the day.  Not the best wake up call, but not horrible.  Sean was up at 7 am and Ben rolled out of bed around 7:30 am.  The morning was fine until Sean started sneaking twizzlers and juice boxes for breakfast! Sorry kid, that’s not what we eat at 7:17 am.  So that meltdown woke Ben up a few minutes later.  Neither one of them would get dressed for school {shocking!}.  It’s so annoying since no one will get dressed or brush their teeth upstairs.  Everything is done in the family room and it drives me wild. Well they do brush their teeth in the powder room and not the family room.  I just wish that they could take care of this upstairs.  I have tried training them hundreds of times, but it never sticks.

So I finally get them all dressed, brushed and packed for school.  Then at 8:25am we slam the door, scream at each other and head off to the bus stop.  This half block walk consists of Sean darting into the street no less than 3 times before he runs all of the way across the park to the bus stop.  Ben was fine on the walk but then all hell broke loose once we hit our corner.  The fighting begins.  “I was here first!”, “No I was!” AHHHHHHH the daily fight over who is first in line.  Then they spend the next few minutes pushing each other into traffic until the bus arrives.  I try breaking them up but then I get caught in the line of fire.  The pushing and shoving is now directed towards me!!!!!!!  I just want to crawl into a hole. I am so embarrassed every morning but I cannot control them at all while I am also holding Owen.  I separate them, I scold them, I threaten their existence.  Nothing gets through to them.  Then after a few choice words the bus shows up and off they go! I think that I actually skip back to the house now that they are in someone else’s hands!

So my day is fairly calm.  Owen and I do chores, shop and he naps!  Then at 3:55 we head back to the bus stop to pick up the raving lunatics {errr I mean my boys}.  They come flying off the bus at 125 mph. Sean takes off up the street while Ben is hanging on Owen’s stroller.  By the time I catch up to Sean, he is half way across the street. UGH this kid is going to give me a heart attack.  I swear to God, no matter how many times I talk to him he still takes off running.  Then we get inside where they invade the snack closet for the next hour straight.

The rest of the night is too embarrassing to type out for you! Just close your eyes and imagine living with the Gosselin’s in the middle of their lowest point with a side of Roseanne! Yeah, that’s how I feel most nights.  I am struggling to find the balance right now of homework, snack, dinner, outside play, baths, etc.  It’s been a huge adjustment this year and I pray that I can figure it out before summertime! I finally just organized all of the school papers that have been piling up since the start of school 3 weeks ago.  I am never going to catch up!!! AHHHHH
