The kitchen is a mess. The toys are a mess. If I cook anything for dinner, Evie won't want to eat it, then complain to me an hour later that she's hungry. I can't cook anything because the counter is a mess. Miles probably needs a nap but right now isn't a good time to put him down for one.  Miles pulls everything off of every table. He pulls the diapers off the drying rack. He goes into the bathroom and gets into everything he's not supposed to get into. The dog probably needs to go pee. What do I feed Miles? When do I have time to feed him something? I bought a bag of flour and I need to put it into the flour thing but I can't do that, Evie is hungry, but she's not gonna eat whatever I make for her, and it's probably not going to be all that healthy for either of us. Miles spilled his water on the floor and Evie stepped in it and she needs new socks because her feet are wet.

The water is boiling.

The kids need baths tonight, especially after the poop Miles had earlier.  All up his back because he got it on his shirt.  They needed baths anyway.

And I can't complain about it because Bethany has it worse on the weekends when I'm at work and she's all alone.

All I want to do is drink a beer and watch a hockey game.  Instead, I have to chase Miles around and put out Evelyn's temper fires.

I'll miss this one day, but today isn't' that day.
