This Too Shall Pass

Madeline discovered a tub of Vaseline in her diaper bag.  By discovered, I mean opened and SLATHERED all over her arms.  I’m talking a quarter of an inch thick – totally coated all 10 fingers and up to her elbows.  I will be scrubbing the oil/grease out of my carpet for weeks.  She’s been in bed for over an hour now, and I’m finally calming down about it.

This morning, I lost about 4o minutes of my “getting ready” time to discipline.  Madeline sat in time-out in 2-minute-intervals, like SIX consecutive times because she refused to say, “I’m sorry.”  There was much weeping and gnashing of teeth.  Oh – and screaming/scooching across the floor on her back.

I’ve heard that the 3′s are actually worse than the “terrible 2′s.”  If this is true, Dan is going to have to have me committed.

Mothers of twins/triplets, you have my undying respect.

    Ahhh! Call the men in the white coats. For us threes were so much worse than twos!

    Brooke did the same thing – only she took a Raggedy Ann that had been made for her and included her in the Vasoline bath…. along with the living room chair, the carpet and anything else even remotely near by. Vasoline repells water pretty well – - – not an easy clean up, I can tell you.
