J was sooooo excited on Sunday morning to see he had eaten all of the carrots and drank the water.
After the kids ate their weight in candy, we piled in the car and headed off to my sisters' house. There, we had another Easter egg hunt. It was total chaos with my 2 kids and her 2 kids, but really fun. We even were able to wrangle them all down for a nap before we went to brunch
Brunch was fun at my parent's country club (I feel like that line makes us sound so fancy, which we are so not). It's hard to get a lot of eating done when you have 2 little kids that need something every 2 seconds. But it's probably a good thing the way my eating has been lately. They had the Easter Bunny there too. At first J was reeeeeal scared of him. But when he saw his cousin sitting on his lap, all of a sudden he became obsessed with the Easter Bunny. He was hugging him, petting his ears, and feet. I think we had to go back and see him at least 10 more times throughout brunch. S on the other hand, was deathly afraid of him and would scream her head off if we even came close to him... good times.
We almost made it out of there without incident... almost. You see, J is has this really weird phobia about toilets. Yes, toilets. One time he was sitting on the potty at our house and he decided to flush it several times in a row, while he was still on it. So of course the toilet overflowed, and water came pouring all over the floor. J FREAKED out! And ever since he's scared of that happening again. Especially public toilets, because the flush is so loud. So we were getting ready to leave the country club and I told J we had to use the potty before we made the 1.5 hour trek back home. So we get in there and he starts spouting off about how the toilet is clogged and its going to flood, yadda yadda. I'm literally trying to pull him into the stall and he's completely freaking out. Since this is a pretty nice country club and I don't want to embarrass my parents, I finally relent and say fine, just wait out here for me then. So as I'm in the stall, I hear other people enter the bathroom. Well J then proceeds to tell them not to use any of the stalls because they are all clogged. So the people politely smile and walk around him, so he starts telling them louder and louder about how it's clogged and it's going to flood and that they NEED to leave. I'm trying to get out of the stall as fast as humanly possible to stop this. O.M.G. what a disaster. This is why people with a 3-year-old and 1-year-old shouldn't be allowed in country clubs...
Back to the grind today. Everyone was tired this morning we woke up for work and school. It's going to be a long day I think.
