Rough Day

I expected today to go better than it did. We had been staying at my parents' house which meant church wasn't until 10:30am (not our normal 8:00am time). Breakfast went well, the kids watched some Veggie Tales, and we were all happy. And I even had time to curl Petey's hair. She looked absolutely adorable.
A few minutes into church and I knew it was going to be a rough morning. Spidey was acting up and crying and Boss took him into the hall. After a while, I could hear my baby screaming so I went out to check on them. Spidey reached for me and stopped crying as soon as I held him. We went into the mother's lounge and shut the light off and after singing about 10 hymns, Spidey actually fell asleep (Score!).
Of course, he woke up during Sunday School and so I tried to take him in to nursery. When we walked in, I noticed Petey's dress was all wet. Yeah---she peed her pants. I took her into Relief Society with me and she sat on Spidey's blanket.
I thought things had calmed down but then I got a text from Boss saying Spidey had thrown up and they were headed back to my parents'. So Petey and I headed back to my parents' as well.

As you can see by the consuming of foods as soon as we got home, Spidey's stomach was never the problem. We think he just screamed so much that he made himself throw up. {Thanks, Boss, for teaching our kids to love Reddiwhip}

Later in the afternoon, Boss and I headed back to the church for our temple recommend renewal interviews. When we got back to my parents', my dad informed us that Spidey had stuck his hand under the fridge and it got cut on something. No biggie, right?

Wrong. My dad had put a bandaid on it but 3 hours later, the bleeding still hadn't stopped.

Hello, Dermabond.

Poor baby guy wasn't too happy about the Dermabond and was fighting most of the time.

Grandpa put a bandaid on it but Spidey kept bending his finger which wasnt helping the Dermabond stick.

So Grandpa wrapped his whole hand in gause and made sure to wrap his finger so it would stay straight.

Of course, on the drive home, Spidey unwrapped the entire thing. When we got home, I rewrapped it and tied the gause so he couldnt undo it {hopefully}.

And then...Spidey started screaming a while ago in his bed. I went in to check on him and found him with his leg stuck in between the bars of his crib. And he kept saying, "Finger, owie, hurt." We gave him some Tylenol and turned on Toy Story (our lifesaver movie) and he is happy. Now if only he was asleep...


And that's how Suze sees it.
