One He** of a Sunday

You know it is going to be a rough Sunday when you start church at 8:00 a.m. and have to speak in church first thing... Actually, that part of the day went rather well. I think that was the 1,439,212 time that Peter and I have spoken in Church because we move so much, so, we are bound to get used to it eventually. RIGHT? Well, for the most part, right. I was hoping to regurgitate a talk that I had already given, but alas, had to construct something entirely new when I couldn't find a talk on that subject. We juggled three kids and two talks and almost came out unscathed. It will be nice when Peter and I can listen to each other's talks. Actually, I have to give credit to the sweet girl who came out into the hall and asked if she could watch Wade so I could listen to Peter speak. It would have been great, if Wade would have gone for it.. but NO WAY.


I was subbing in the 7 year olds class today but when I arrived at Primary to sub that class, they QUICKLY informed me that I would be subbing for Jaxon's class. That was fine, but, it takes a WHOLE lot more energy to teach 5 year olds (Especially Jaxon) and I wasn't mentally prepared for the task. However, I made it out alive and it even went pretty well. Jaxon informed me later that he didn't like me teaching his class. (I am sure it had NOTHING to do with making him sit still and him KNOWING I will deliver on my threats)


Since Wade isn't officially old enough for nursery, he was taken home during RS/Priesthood and I was going to take the kids home in Peter's car after church.. and I WOULD have, if I had a key to his car on my key chain.. Oh, that reminds me honey, your car is still at the church. We hooked a ride home from someone else.


Wade was in fine form at church.. I mean, ALL DAY... He must have wonked his head or run into a wall or tripped over a book at LEAST 600 times today. (Ok, so, I feel like exaggerating today) Anyway, it was a LONG baby day and you know how those go... they just seem to NEVER END! We couldn't WAIT to toss him into the crib with his blankie and a binky.. the night didn't fall fast enough!


BUT HERE is the topper... I was awoken ever so gently (or by frantic yelling), you choose how YOU think it went, from my leisurely Sunday nap to find that Abby had one of These in her ear ....Inserted by her wonderful brother Jaxon. By the time I was woken, there had already been some attempts to get it out so a trip to the Insta Care was in order... I think they are going to get to know us well. We have already been there for THIS, and Peter was there just a couple of weeks ago for Strep. Good golly. Happy Sabbath. I hope yours was a LOT more "restful".


To finish this uplifting and spiritual blog entry, I thought I would share a few things that DID make me smile today.

This is a picture of Jaxon and Peter. What are they doing? DUH! Dancing at a disco with a disco ball! (Of course) Jaxon is the one on the right. It looks like he is a little uncertain about his "moves".

This is the picture that Jaxon drew when we told him to draw a monster to shoot with his new Nerf Gun. Of course we were just trying to keep aim away from us. Don't you think it is an awfully bright and sunny day for a monster to be attacking the house? I thought so too.

HAPPY SUNDAY!

Uh-oh. I hope Heidi reads this. They just got a whole mess of those melty beads at their house and oh, the possible damage!

How did they finally get it out?

At least this time you spoke Jaxon wasn't punching Abby. Or maybe that was when P spoke.

Some day you will be able to laugh about it, right?!

Now go throw yourself in bed with a chocolate bar and a blankey and the day will be over very, very soon.

ps why the disco ball?

It's a good thing you're not a drinking woman...this could've put you on a wild bender!

I spoke yesterday, too. Ceseley refused to nap all day, so she was a real gem by the time our late afternoon church mtgs kicked off. Your day was still more adventurous, though.

Hope your evening was quiet...

Bridget said...

Oh the bead in the ear is too funny. At least it may help prevent ear infections if inserted the right way. Its kind of like an ear tube.

Hope you had a nice relaxing Calgon bath last night.

8:00am church!!! Are you kidding me? I would totally make everyone sleep in their church clothes...

Sorry you had such a crazy day...here's to a much better Monday!

Natalie said...

Alright this one is good. I am going to bed with a giggle in my heart. Not laughing at you, laughing WITH you:)! Cute pictures, funny melty beads in ears, Happy Happy HE.. of a Sunday!

Amy said...

Off topic (because I don't like to post my own birth details on my own blog)...yes, I'm totally doing a VBAC. I'm actually doing a water birth at a little, hippy birthing center, so I have no choice but to push that kid out of my vajango.

So glad to hear that you're a successful VBACer! I love success stories!

MAGnificent art. Magnificent!

Love the disco ball picture! Ah, we've all had those kinds of days, haven't we? But someday my own kids will be ranting to me about their own children... sweet justice. :)

PS I love the sunburst mirror above the reading chair in your previous post! Classy!

Love church stories. It makes me feel so much better about our anything-but-spiritual experiences on the Sabbath.

8:00 church?! That's one way to see who really has a testimony, huh?

Lindsay said...

HEHEHEHEHE! Are not ALL sabbath days like this, like the OPPOSITE of heaven, like the OPPOSITE of pleasant in any way....AND we VOLUNTEER to go! Really, if that's not proof of a testimony I'm not sure what is. Been there. Now, the ear plug is a new one...

Jill said...

Oh man, what a long day...sorry. Sounds rough!
I love the pix though. Too cute!

I love your house pix too...nice job :)
