4 Year Old Blues
Any ways. He is CONSTANTLY talking. I think he thinks he will die if he doesn't hear his own voice for more like 2 minutes at a time. He also ask me question after question after QUESTION and most often it is the SAME question 50 different times. It seriously makes me want to rip my hair out!!! I think my blood pressure is probably through the roof today! We live in a small town so it takes us a good 40 minutes to an hour to go do anything other then Walmart. We went to the zoo on Tuesday with our good friends and it takes us a little under an hour to get there. USUALLY he watches his DVD player and I get occasional question or remark about a billboard or something. This time he talked to me the WHOLE time. Half the time I couldn't even hear him. The car is kind of like my own "alone" time sometimes. I listen to my music in the front and they watch the DVD's in the back. It helps me gain back my normal mental state before reaching a shopping destination where I know the kids are gonna drive me nuts and cause me to breath deeply into a brown paper bag. So him talking to me the whole time was driving me up the wall. I realize that sounds mean....but he talks to me ALLLLLLLLLL day long and the car is usually the time I actually get some quiet. Don't forget my Husband travels and I don't have a baby sitter so I am alone with my kids for WEEKS at a time with NO break so sometimes that hour car ride is all I get.
He also has been having a really hard to listening...I know its the age but it's also driving me bonkers! THEN he has been really mean to his sister. Pushing her, yelling at her, taking things away from her. CRAZY PEOPLE....I am going crazy! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to our Utah trip and the fact that we will be staying with my parents and I will get a LEAST a day or two of baby sitting. Last time I was there for a month my dad watched the kids 2 or 3 times so I could go shopping with my mom and my sisters. It means the WORLD to me. Cody and I actually got to go out on a date too! Not just a date but an OVER NIGHT DATE! That is only the second time in history since the kids were born.
Today we are driving up to San Antonio for a Air Force graduation for a relative. Wish us luck. It is a 3 to 4 hour drive and the kids have already almost pushed me over the edge today. I am praying they are great in the car and don't drive us nuts. Pray there are no casualties along the way and BOTH of my kids make it back. HAHA I am being dramatic of course. I LOVE my kids to death and I would just die if anything happened to either of them. It's kind of like that saying, "How can I miss you if you won't go away?" Sometimes I need that break and I am hoping Utah will be that for me. Until Sunday, I will be gone so I hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope to get up to date on some things next week. My daughter is having surgery on Tuesday so I have no idea what the week is gonna be like for us but I hope everything goes okay!!
I am so glad they are so darn cute!!!! :)
