Day from Hell / First Day of School

I am so tired I don't even feel like going into the details of the day from hell but I am forcing myself because today was a was Little Man's first day of school!  We signed him up for a once a week 2s program and today was the introductory class with Mommy.  It went very well and I was so proud of him.  He wasn't the worst kid in the class!! Yippee!!  I was on top of the world.  My son is the best kid EVER.

The shit hit the fan the second we got home.  He had a complete breakdown about taking off the diaper that Daddy drew a firetruck on before he left for school.  I mean he was kicking, screaming, throwing his body all over the floor, pulling on every extremity I have and it lasted at least 30 minutes.  I finally got him and Baby down for a nap.  Hallelujah...I have at least 2 hours of peace. 

Oh wait, they BOTH decided to wake up 30 minutes later miserable as hell.  FML.  I now have 2 babies in their diapers having complete tantrums in the kitchen.  I was contemplating taking a video because no one would ever believe how bad it was.  I decided it was time for a drive.  I didn't say a word to either of them...I just threw them in the car and we were off.  Did it stop the incessant crying?  No, but at least I didn't have to do anything but drive.  I didn't say a word. Finally, Baby fell asleep. 

It was a loooongggg car ride that ended in a trip to the mall with Grammie.  By that time both boys were relatively mellow and happy to finally be out of the car.  We paid $10 f'ing dollars to push them around in carts with steering wheels, bought some nail polish and just walked around for a while. 

When we got home Little Man had another melt down about the mechanics of a tension gate.  I let Daddy handle that one.  We fed them dinner, had some chocolate ice cream, watched a little Toy Story 3 and went to bed.  I feel like I've been hit by a truck.

Here are some moments that kept me sane today...
