Fight or Flight

I'm not entirely convinced I'm going to make it through this day. Cody seems to be in a terrible mood. He has already hit his brother in the head with toy cars, pushed him several times, and the winning moment had to be when he shoved an angel food cake pan over Jamie's head. You know, the kind that has a hole in the bottom, so it was around his neck and he couldn't get it off. I couldn't either. He was screaming and I was so mad, and I was starting to wonder whether I was going to have to take him somewhere to get it off, but when I got him to calm down a little I was finally able to get it back off of his head. So far, the day has been one emotionally charged battle after another, and I am already worn down at 10:30 a.m. They are now pretending to sleep under a blanket on the living room floor. It is pretty cute, as they keep giggling together. The silence is a welcome change. How in the world is it going to work when these two have to share a room? That's not going to be long from now. I have a feeling once that happens, sleep will be a thing of the past for everyone in this house. Today, I'm desperate for an escape. Even just to go to town for a few hours...without the boys. But, I have no one to leave them with today, so that is not an option. I might leave this evening as soon as Mike gets home, we'll see. I have no exciting stories to tell today. For my blog, that is a disappointment. For me and my sanity, it is probably a good thing. That's all for now.
