Ever heard the maxim:
“Parenting is like being pecked to death by chickens, slowly!”
Well its true! Yesterday was one of THOSE days. You Moms all know what I mean. The day that your children wake up, agree to conspire to ruin your life and HAVE AT IT! Mine certainly did. And I felt like the meanest Mom ever. All day.
Thinking further on it. I kinda realized it was because I told myself I was the meanest Mom ever. No-No number 1.
Number 2? I wasn’t entirely consistent. I really need to kick that up a notch.
Number 3? Our routine was changed. We havn’t had a routine for almost a week now (I’m not so good at that.) and they didn’t nap. That really added to the stress.
Number 4? This one is all them: They knew better, and they didn’t care.
Lessons learned? 3-Mom 1-Kids.
Lets hope this makes for a better tomorrow. I think we’re all exhausted. Some days just seem like a fight from start to finish. Its been one of those WEEKS.
Tomorrow will be better. I know it.
