Make the screaming and the messes stop!!!

So, I know that my day has not been nearly as disastrous as Frister Jenny's day a few weeks ago (for more, read about it here), but it has been pretty bad.

It all started last night. Marshy-marsh wouldn't go to bed. In fact, it was around 4 AM before we actually got him to stop screaming. Then, this morning, he woke up earlier than normal after only sleeping for 4 or 5 hours. He was awake until around 2 PM. He took a quickie nap, lasting maybe an hour, 90 minutes tops. Then he was awake and grumpy. Bedtime is usually around 7 PM. I put him down aroung 6:30 because he hadn't slept very much today.

2 HOURS LATER: Marshy is still screaming at the top of his lungs. You'd think he'd get tired and give in and go to sleep. Don't worry. I'm not a bad mother. I didn't let him cry the whole two hours straight. I went in to check to make sure he wasn't poopy, or didn't have his foot stuck in the crib....again (yes, he's done it twice). Finally, tired of the screaming, I got him out and let him run around, hoping that maybe this would tire him out and he would go to bed. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

It didn't work. I had the lights off in the kitchen and dining room, but the hall light was on, so I could still see where Marshy was. During the last 5 seconds of CSI's season finale (which I totally called, BTW, except for the other person involved - didn't see that one coming) my phone rang. Whilst trying to figure out why my phone wouldn't silence the call I heard a loud CRASH! BANG! Giggle! I hurried into the kitchen, where I thought Marshy was playing with the pots and pans (that's the cupboard he was in when I had looked at him a few seconds before). What I beheld upon walking around the counter was Marshy, covered head to toe in Comet. Comet all over the kitchen floor. Comet all over the front of my cupboards. And, as I hurriedly rushed baby into the bathtub, Comet all over my carpet.

FORTUNATELY he didn't put any in his mouth or his eyes. I don't know how he got the Comet out of the cupboard. I didn't even know it was open! I don't even use Comet! Why do I have some in my cupboard?? I use SoftScrub because it has a handy squeeze bottle with a flip top lid. Also, all of my cleaners are usually in the bathroom, or at least securely closed. WHAT THE HECK?! How did I miss the Comet??

Marshy is now in bed. His laundry is going. He is hopefully asleep (I can't hear him at least....the washer and A/C are quite loud when going at the same time). My kitchen is finally clean. I have washed off the bottom of my vacuum. But, my floor still smells like Comet. BOO!

At least the screaming has stopped....temporarily.

Taylor, at that same age, poured vegetable oil all over the kitchen floor. Luckily it is a wood floor!
