Today started out on a good note. I felt fairly refreshed when Emma woke me up a little after 7:00 and got quite a bit of housework done right off the bat before making breakfast around 9:00. Things were going pretty smoothly. Abby took a nice 2 hour nap and woke up just 15 minutes after Emma went to sleep around 1:00. No problems. We then had to meet Mike and Wanda at Rocky's for dinner at 3:00. As soon as Emma woke up we had to leave. Everything was fine in the car on the way over there. This is where it all begins. Both girls were just plain awful at the restaurant! I couldn't believe it! They're usually very well-behaved. A little fussy here and there maybe, but that's it. Abby has an excuse at least, because you can see that her top two front teeth are about to bust through. Poor thing. I don't know what Emma's issue was though. She wouldn't sit still at all. She usually loves going out to eat with Mike and Wanda, but the whole time today, she was just whiny and wanted to run everywhere and not eat anything. Between the two of them there was quite a bit of commotion. Luckily the place was pretty loud anyway so I didn't feel too bad. During all of this I got to hear more negative comments about expecting another one and how I wouldn't be able to handle it and whatnot. Sure, if all 3 kids are acting like that we probably won't be going out. Overall they don't act like that though. They catch us on a bad day and take advantage of the opportunity to let the comments fly. I'm not a very emotional person and it's a good thing I typically hide my feelings anyway cause I really just wanted to cry when they were saying that stuff and I can't imagine crying in such a public place, but I came close. Emma could be teething too I guess. She is expecting her last 4 molars any time now. Oh well. And I really wish Scott was home right now, cause right after I put the girls to bed at 7:30 and 7:45 a bunch of guys decided to start a football game right outside our bedroom windows. They haven't woke them up yet, but I know I wouldn't be able to sleep through all the noise they're making. I'm way too scared to say anything to them. I wish I wasn't such a sissy. Hopefully they get some sense and leave soon before I go crazy.
Here's a picture I got this morning when everything was still A-OK.
