Well, the week started out fine, but the girls are obviously wanting their routines back.  So is mommy!

My niece also used them to her advantage and had them do her dirty deeds.  They both crave "friendship" so they went right along with it.  Layla jumped on the top bunk bed and came through to the bottom.  MK greeted me with, "Mommy come fast, we have an emergency!"  I gave my sister $100 for the bed.  She just broke through the mattress supports at the end. 

Grandma gave the girls the Dollar Tree Easter globes.  I should have tossed them, but I didn't want to be rude.  Layla decided to see if the 2 ounce glass globe could withstand the 52 pounds that is Layla.  IT DIDN'T!  Glass and glitter... EVERYWHERE!

MK hasn't thrown a fit on me since the start of March.  Yesterday she decided it would be a good day to make sure her fit skills were still intact.  They were! 

She pitched a HUGE fit.  My sister got to witness the mess!  MK felt AWFUL afterward.  And embarrassed that Aunt Amber saw what a wreck she was. 

This fit was fueled by her being tired, telling me Layla wouldn't let her fall asleep, then lying and saying she DID sleep when I knew she hadn't.   Then arguing with me that she did.  When I decided not to engage she started the, "mommy you better be listening, you are a fat b*tch, I hate you, I am not your kid, I wish you would die, MOOOOOMYYYYYY YOU BETTER COME IN HERE!  I KNOW YOU DON'T WANT ME TO PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE!!!"  Then she got what she wanted because she tried to physically engage me with other kids running around even after I told them to go into the bedroom.  So I put her in a hold, but my gosh is she strong!  It was a pretty bad one. 

Layla has also been in a fun mood. 

I can't say that I blame them.  Family around, going new places, seeing new things.  We skipped Universal due to me getting a stomach bug.  It was for the best. 

So, needless to say, I am happy to be heading home tomorrow.  This vacation has been exhausting, but I have had fun some too.  It was a good reminder that I need to keep their world small still.  I am trying to expand it... but this fast isn't a good idea. 

We will be home Saturday.  I can't wait to see my husband!

Oh Lady...I so know the tune to this one....and you WANT the fun to be worth the triggers..and in so Very many ways it IS....and so very many very gently want to bang your head into a brick wall.

Welcome home mama!
You probably still will have a couple FABO days where they work on getting regulated again.

Easter in general did that for us...someday (when it seems more funny to me) I will blog about the PEE filled , Plastic Easter Egg...

Good luck shrinking their world to fit again!!! Glad you got to get away!
