BUCK UP BUTTERCUP

est. 2010

"I will take the sun in my mouth

and leap into the ripe air

Alive

with closed eyes

to dash against the darkness."

Is it Because They're Two? Or am I Doing Something Wrong?

A minute-by-minute play of the whining we deal with:

6:27 AM: "I want my paci!"

6:30 AM: "I peed on the floor by mistake!"

6:34 AM: "I want milk."

6:45 AM: "I don't want Daddy. I want Mommy!."

6:54 AM: Crying because of spilled milk.

7:00 AM: "I want a Kleenex!"

7:24 AM: Crying because I don't want both kids to come upstairs with me while I make an espresso. (I will be right back down.)

7:27 AM: "I want a paci!"

7:28 AM: "I want the music box so I can throw it!"

7:29 AM: "I want the (play) broom that Sissy has!"

7:35 AM: Time out for throwing milk.

7:45 AM: "I don't WANT scrambled eggs!"

7:46 AM: "I want to crack the eggs BY MYSELF!"

7:52 AM: "I want apples!" (Which we don't have.)

7:53 AM: "I want you to lift me up so I can see the stovetop!"

7:54 AM: Had to stop documenting this because otherwise I will not make it through the day...
