After the temple, we stopped and got some yummy Arbies, came home and ate with Joe and the kids. Thanks Dad & Mom for the wonderful morning...I hope you know how much I love you :)
Soooo- onto the afternoon, I sat and folded some laundry and watched my favorite show "Friends" I have all seasons on DVD and can I just say, WHY, oh why did they have to go! I love that show and laugh even though I have seen it probably at least 3x. It makes folding laundry a little more bearable :)After "Friends" our new Friends Betsy & Jory invited us to go to Hardware Ranch. I don't know if any of you have heard of that place, but it is an Elk reserve and they take you on hay rides around to look at the Elk and it is only like $5 a person...kids free. So, I am excited to go because I am thinking this will be something new and fun. Here are only a few (not so great) pictures It wasn't very easy to take them cause we had to be sitting most the time.
Well- onto when the day started to go bad. To make a long story short, the kids were AWFUL. Mckay was ornery, whiny, and rude the entire time and Kylin threw about two fall down on the ground screaming tantrums. I was sitting in the parking lot talking to my friend Betsy after we got off the ride, while her little boy sat quietly in the car. MY kids, on the other hand, start screaming and running all over the parking lot. We didn't really get to finish our conversations and had to leave. I am sure she is NEVER going to invite me to do anything again because my kids were so AWFUL. I was SO SO embarrassed. Kylin was screaming, so I just left her on the sidewalk and walked away cause I couldn't take another minute. Craig, brought them to the car while I sat there and BAWLED my eyes out the whole way home.
I don't know what I am doing wrong as a mother. I feel like a COMPLETE failure. I can't even teach my kids to be polite and civilized and maybe just listen to me ONE TIME. Seriously, you would think they were starving or tired, but no...they had a nap before we left, and treats while we were there. They are just so naughty sometimes (lots of the times) and I just don't know what to do. I need help because I am doing something wrong. I don't see everyone else's kids acting like that. Please any advice...PLEASE. Anyways, sorry to go on for so long- I don't know if any of you are still reading this :) I am not having a pity party here, it just feels good to get it off my chest. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. I think I will go to bed at like 8 tonight and try not to cry....
