Great injustices...

Kylie feels seriously left out whenever she notices her sister and mother brushing their teeth. She stares at us and cries, wondering why she can't have a tooth brush as well. I try to console her and let her know she can have one as soon as a single tooth breaks through, but she doesn't seem to get much comfort from this...

It was 1 degree today when I left the house. I repeat, 1! It was in the 60's in Colorado

And what has me most upset? My babysitter canceled on me two hours in advance, which means no date night with Justin, no Pub Quiz, no hopes of breaking 50 Points tonight, no evening away from kids spending time with fun adults, no visit to Humpy's and a total waste of 40 minutes that I had just spent making my hair look perfect. The saddest part? Justin doesn't even know it yet. He is flying and will discover the truth once he rushes home to go out. Pity me. Please...

Would I be a horrible mom if I fed the kids Ice cream for dinner? That's all I want right now.

I hear you loud and clear on this one! Woe is you, and me, since my husband is out of town. I'm facing a lonely night.


And I put my kids to bed at 6:45.

After feeding them pumpkin pie for dinner.

I am so sorry. There are just things we look forward to as moms, Grey's Anatomy, Bedtime, and Babysitters...it is always sad when they do not come as expected.

Thanks for the comment, sadly I have no clue how to get Nate home:-/ but the best ice cream place is open til 10 and I think that sounds like a swell idea:) You're the best:) I'd totally babysit and we'd eat ice cream for dinner with you before you went;)
