What Else Can They Come Up With?

3:45 am: ""

"Yes, what is it?"

"Mom.. I can't sleep. Can I watch TV?"

"No way, it is a school night. You get back to bed."

"I can't sleep, can I sleep in your room?"

"Sure but be quite and go to sleep."

6:00pm: "Big Cowpoke go to your room, you are in big trouble!"

"Okay........MOM......COME IN HERE. Look what happened in my room last night. I don't know what happened."

"What the........oh my goodness........why didn't you tell me you got sick last night?" Puke all over his pillow and bed.

"I didn't know I was sick."

6:45pm: Little Cowpoke was standing at my garage door, "Momma, I just poo pooed."

"Yeah, good for you, where are your pants? Where did you poo poo?"

"Momma, Iz just poo pooed in da mini van" Really big smile.

"You did WHAT? You better show me."

Followed Little Cowpoke outside and to my van, which was parked in the middle of the driveway. And sure enough there were three big poo poos on the floor of my new mini van. Oh, that boy's bottom was still bare and he had the biggest grin on his face like he just did the most wonderful thing ever. But don't worry, that smile didn't last long. And soon he was running for the house door.

7:30am: I was in the barn finishing up feeding horses. I have two that I keep inside and feed twice a day. Ozzie had finished eating and I decided I had some time to do some showmanship work. I worked on some showmanship for about 5 minutes. We had trotted off, set up and done a 180. Then I was about to trot off again when all of a sudden Ozzie freaked out . He did it so fast that I didn't even move. All I saw was dirt and a hoof right in my face. It was so close to my face that I got wet barn dirt in my right ear, in my hair, and in my eyes and mouth. Not yummy. Then when Ozzie got to the end of my lead rope, he simply stopped, turned and looked at me like, "What?" Yeah he so got lunged until his veins were big and sweat was coming off his neck. I would say he was feeling a big frisky this morning. Too bad I was not quite up to his energy level being that I was awake at 3 am.

Now if I could only get Mr. Cowboy to come home and tame some of these wild Cowpokes I would be in business. I am grateful that two of the three are in bed and I am about to hit the sack my self. Now I did not include that Big Cowpoke had a half day of school today. He was home at 12:30 pm. Little Cowpoke has been suffering from middle child syndrome and is arguing with everyone. So, I was the referee today too. I had many times today when All four of us were sent to our rooms. I am just happy that my van doesn't smell like poo poo. Thank goodness. At least Little Cowpoke told me and I didn't have that just sitting in my van, in the heat, cooking, for a few days. That would have been lovely. Now in no particular order, here are the culprits of the day's events.

As you know I've got 3 kids, too. And they are also two boys and one girl. Things have calmed down just a tad since the days when my three drove me so batty.

But I must tell you that your crazy night and day with your kids brought all that back again..and just cracked me up.

Remember I'm laughing WITH you, not AT you, right?

hehehe :)

Well, at least they're cute--that kept them alive, right? You would've had a better day if you'd have come to playgroup! And next week is at my house.

Amanda said...

Oh.My.Gosh. I would've died around 3 a.m. Puke and poop in one day? Never. Those are the days I quit and run away. Yuck. I'm so sorry.

Melanie said...

Aaaaahhhhh!!!! Don't kids do some of the most awful things???

Even though I only have two, I am right there with you on the fighting kid thing. It drives me nuts!!!

Karen said...

You have got my sympathy. Puke and poop incidents should never happen in the same day. But at least Ozzie is feeling better!

Beth from the Funny Farm said...

Oh what a sweet picture of your son and his little sister.

Kids. ****sigh!****

bella said...

You have the most beautiful babies! Of course you take lovely pictures of them. I am amazed at all the pics you take, they look so good, you must go around all day long with the camera around your neck.

KD said...

Puke AND Poop ! I can just envision Little Cowpoke grinning with his bare bottom. :-)

Jenn said...

Oh yuck, your lucky he did tell you! Great pictures!

Danielle Michelle said...

Ahhhh haha! I'm glad you have survived. You need a break. See my blog, there is a message on there for you and I think it would be AWESOME!!!

I'm glad the mini-van doesn't smell like poo poo. Think he'll ever do it again?

This is the time of year they feel frisky! Mine just started bucking in the field while trying to move bulls the other morning. He must have felt good. After I pulled him up he cocked his head sideways and looked up at me in the saddle like, "What!?"

The Wades said...

That's just cruel and unusual--poo and vomit! Ugh. If I had my choice, I'd choose cleaning up poo. (why would I choose either? I just don't know.) I had better go to bed before I come up with anything else.

Beautiful children!

Train Wreck said...

Oh I ams so thankful my kids are Waaay past that stage!! Of course now I have new difficulties! But no more poop!!
Adorable little kiddos!!Those eyes are mezmerizing!!

kdwhorses said...

LMAO~ You just have to laugh on those kinds of days or we would be crying all the time! Hope your days get better!

I loved this post. It brought back so many similar memories of my child bearing days. Enjoy... they will be gone in a flash. Gotta love your kids smiles, they always make me grin and I tell my hubby, Aren't these the cutest kids".
