I sure love it when people do ridiculously stupid things and allow me to have a teaching experience with my children. This morning, I was awarded one of those wonderful opportunities.
Isaak didn't sleep all night. He'd wake up every hour not wanting anything but to be RE-swaddled (yes, my 8 month old STILL loves to be swaddled) so I'd go in there, wrap him up, lay him in his boppy and kiss him good night...again...and again...and again. Every hour mind you. At 4:30am he was up and this time for good. I, on the other hand, was NOT ready to be up for good but when you have a baby, they always rule. I took him in my room and let him crawl all over me as I slept on the floor, or at least tried to sleep. I knew that as soon as he was ready to go BACK to sleep, it'd be time for me to get up with the school kids. Ugh.
I remembered that it was snowing last night before bedtime. PRAYING I'd look out the window and see a winter wonderland I ran to go see. YESSS!! The streets were covered in icy snow. I flipped on the TV in hopes that school will be canceled or at least...delayed.
Just know, that prayers are answered. My cheesy little weather girl with her NC accent told me that Onslow is on a THREE hour delay. Awww...relief is in store. Once Isaak would go down I could count on sleeping for at least a couple more hours before he'd be up again and I wouldn't have to be interrupted by a school alarm.
A little after 6am, Izey is pooped. FINALLY. Sleep is coming for me. I put him down and cozy up in my three layers of blankets ready for some much needed rest.
Unfortunately, it didn't last long. I obviously have completely RETARDED neighbors who can't do math and a little after 7am my door bell starts ringing.
WHAT THE CRAP!!!!!!!!???????
I'm so mad. I was in SUCH a deep sleep. I run to my window to see if there's a car in the driveway. NO. It's someone nearby that must have walked. WHO is ringing my door bell!!!! I was pissed. Like, ready to kill someone. They rang it THREE FREAKIN TIMES before going away. I didn't check to see who it was, I was so mad I thought I might kill them right then and there.
2 seconds after the door stops ringing....WAAAHHHH!!!!!!!!!
Isaak's up. Which means...I am too.
I hate stupid people. Everyone in this freakin cul de sac KNOWS I have a baby. Who would be completely stupid enough to ring my door bell at 7AM THREE TIME IN A ROW?!
After being up an hour or so, it happened again to allow me to see who the culprit was. I ran down the stairs...FURIOUS. I cracked the door open and there was my across the street neighbor's daughter looking up at me. She says..."Do you know what time the bus is gonna come?"
I give her a look of death and say, "THREE HOURS LATER." And then I shut the door.
What the crap is it with these idiots? Can you not add THREE hours more onto the REGULAR pickup time? Is it really THAT hard? You obviously KNEW about the three hour delay when you rang my doorbell this morning and woke me AND my baby up. Can you not add? What the freak!? Congratulations for winning my hate. Ugh...I'm so mean, I know...but seriously people. Who does that?!
So back to my opportunity. I was able to teach the kids this morning that we don't EVER ring doorbells of people's homes if they have a baby. No matter WHAT time it is and ESPECIALLY if it's 7am. And for that matter, we don't ring doorbells even if they DON'T have a baby ANYTIME before 10am. The ONLY time we would ring someone's doorbell at 7am is in a DIRE emergency. Like men need to be chasing you just feet away with knives and guns for it to be okay.
The worst part about it? Is that the stupid mom KNEW she shouldn't be ringing my doorbell so that's why she was sending her daughter over to do it. UGH.
Okay...I feel better. Forgive me for my hatred.
