On Wednesday, Sep. 12, I received a call around 9:00 asking if I could come watch the kids while Tara took Peyt to the hospital, because she had possibly borken her arm. I threw some clothes on, quickly brushed my teeth, and headed out the door. When I arrived at the house, Peyt and Tara quickly left to head to the hospital which left me with the four other kids. I was trying to straighten the kitchen up from breakfast food when I hear Sime coughing, I thought they were just playing until from the frontroom I hear the dreaded words…’Sime just threw up’. So I went in to view the damage, not much just some chocolate milk remenants. So I take Sime into the bathroom…half way down the hall he goes at it again. I put my hand over his mouth trying to stem the flow and get him over the toilet where he finishes and I dump my hand. By this time we have a some piles in the frontroom, hall, and the bathroom floor. It’s on my foot and down Sime’s leg. I start heaving a little from the smell of it all, and the only thing Sime can say is ‘my leg’. Wanting me to get him cleaned up. I quickly said a prayer, ‘Dear Jesus, you have got to help me here’. He came through, I either stopped breathing or the smell mechanism was shut off in my nose. I was able to get the floor, and myself and Sime cleaned up and back to our regular scheduled program.
We then played in the playhouse for awhile and then I had to get lunch done for the four of them and two of the ready for school (they only go 1/2 day). I didn’t realize how crazy it can be when you have two that want to go to school but don’t want to get ready for school so they dwadle over lunch and everything else. I mispalced Kirst’s clothes, had to get them all to brush their teeth (of course since the two older ones were doing it then the younger ones had to). Not to mention to make sure that I had the ‘boy’ stuff for the boys and ‘girl’ stuff for the girls…forbide that we would have to use a princess cup or toothpaste.
It was a very interesting day. I did get the kids to school on time, and everything worked out with the younger ones. Peyt did break her arm and she will have to go in to get it casted.
