Today was just one of those days for me…
One of those days where the toddler pees on the carpet more than he pees in the potty
Where the screams (from both parties unfortunately) outnumber the hugs
Where every food offered and suggested is met with an angry “No! No like it!”
Where an entire box of crackers is dumped out behind the couch…
And an entire bucket of water out of the bathtub
Where the toddler hits the dog and pulls the cat’s tail… even though he knows better
Where an usually early wake up and an all too common late bedtime are not my friends
Where I spend way too much time whining on Twitter
Where I could vacuum another dozen times and the carpet still wouldn’t feel clean
Where dragging all the pots out of the cupboard and all the DVDs out of the entertainment stand is actually allowed just because it means just ten minutes of peace
Where the time outs are so many that count is lost
Where even the sweet demands from my beloved pets get on my nerves
Where the bedtime countdown has started by lunch
And I find myself wishing that I was a “glass of wine to take the edge off” person
A day where I feel like such a shitty parent
For the yelling
For the lack of patience
The lack of crafts
The counting of minutes
Wanting to run away. Or take a nap. Or even read a book.
Parenting is so freaking hard sometimes.
Tomorrow will be better, right?
