Nothing Says Happy Valentines Day Like the Gift of Xanax.

Geez! What a week. I'm not sure if there is something in the air, if the girls are hitting a growth spurt, or if maybe the universe itself is trying to drive me into an addiction that will land me a nice suite at the Betty Ford Clinic.

The Munchkin has been super duper, freaky deaky clumsy and accident prone this week. She fell in the drive way yesterday and scratched up her chin, hands, and knuckles... yes, both hands and knuckles, she's talented I tell you. She has fallen off of her feet countless times and while eating dinner last night, she fell off of her chair. She was there, then she wasn't. It would have been funny if my heart wouldn't have stopped for a split second. What really is funny, is that now, when she rolls off of a chair or comes crashing into a room face first, she yells: "I'm Ooookaaaay." Unfortunately she gets it honestly since I'm about as graceful as a brick. I was just hoping that she wouldn't get that trait from me, but it appears this will be passed on to the next generation.

We went to a Valentines party today and man, my kids gave me a run for my money.

Munchkin? Whiny.
Ashley? Pretty much inconsolable the entire time we were there.
Mary Kate? Slept... thank the lord for small miracles, right?

Frazzled couldn't even begin to describe my state of mind. Several of the kids had periods of crankiness, and Non Lucid Drivel joked about putting them on Craigslist, but I was thinking more about leaving them on someones doorstep. Craigslist would take too long and then I would just have to meet some shady person in a Winn Dixie parking lot, only further complicating and dragging out the process. I'm really thinking doorstep is the way to go.

Isn't this supposed to be a holiday celebrating love (and chocolates?) Maybe it would be more accurate to celebrate the death of my sanity!

My sanity left me a few weeks ago when Mark made his first trip to SC.

This week, they have proved that when Daddy's out of town, they strive to drive me off the deep end.

Hope your weekend is better.
