No angst to report today! Unlike last week and the week before, everything went as planned. I spent Saturday evening prepping my hair, doing my nails (for the first time in months!) and choosing my outfit. It was an incredibly boring Saturday night, but oh well.
This morning went smoothly. I got up with the girls and let Pat sleep in. I spent a little too long with the eyeshadow, again, but there was plenty of time so I didn’t neglect any of my duties. Girl 1’s tights were on properly, and all our fingernails were clean. I even said some of Morning Prayer and read the Gospel reading in advance.
So, hooray for good routines! Now to keep it up . . . .
WARNING: DISGUSTING PARENTING WAR STORY BELOW
So, our fingernails were clean but Girl 2’s nose was not. Her nose is running so much these days I don’t even notice it. But once we got in our pew I tried to wipe it and boy, that was a mistake. She shrieked, loudly and indignantly and repeatedly, so Pat had to take her to the back almost immediately.
They returned to the pew later, and Girl 2 had a fresh booger hanging out of her nose, just ripe for the picking. I thought I could get it with one, quick swipe of a wet wipe. (They say insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result . . . .) She shrieked, she screamed, she arched her back in protest, hit her head on the pew, and screamed even louder. Blood curdling. Poor Pat spent the rest of Mass with her in the vestibule.
