Dear Today, You Suck

Dear Today,

You suck.

Sorry to be so blunt, but someone had to say it.

You've sucked from the minute I got up with the first triplet at 12:30 a.m. You still sucked at 2 a.m. At 3:15 a.m. At 5 a.m.

The suckiness continued at 7 a.m. when it became clear that Isaac had succumbed to the illness going around our house. Fever of 102, you suck, too.

Trying to take care of three other kids while carrying a 20-lb boy on one hip all morning. Sucked.

Incessant crying and whining. Sucked.

Finally getting everyone down for a nap and then lying down myself for some much-needed rest, only to be greeted seconds later by crying. Sucked.

For the record it sucked when the second and third babies woke up in the middle of the nap, too.

I think that was when I tweeted that I thought I should get a nanny and return to work. At least then I'd be getting paid to listen to my colleagues whine.

It's 3:30 now, so you still have a chance to redeem yourself, though I must admit I'm not very hopeful. You do have sick children working against you.

Still, do your best, would you? Thanks.

Sincerely,

Trippin' Mama

that just about says it all. I had 3 of the 5 sick last week and it simply sucks! I hope this bug passes quickly and all are back to healthy and poor Mom can get a little rest.
I'm hoping for a better day for you!!!

Thanks for being such great cheerleaders, guys. It's nice to know I can be perfectly honest and you all get it, without judgment!
