not a very "good mom" day

We stayed at David's folks house WAY too late last night, so Spud was a bit off his game most of today. And I wasn't very patient. And totally lost it once. ::sigh:: I wish I would be a bit more patient and understanding and remember that they're just little. I get so caught up in the emotion of the moment and can't behave rationally.

Tomorrow's a new day, though, I suppose. Hopefully we can both do better.

You're not alone, we've all had our moments with our kids. My kids test my patience every day, especially lately with sugar overload, late nights, cousins, cousins, and no school= no schedule!

Don't be so hard on yourself. You're a great mom!

Seriously understand. I just got a new calling in my new ward. Sunbeams. Yikes. I think it's to help with my mommy abilities. :) I survived last sunday--we actually had fun. And today even through a day of shopping...I survived and didn't freak out. Luckily we get second and third and fourth chances.

love ya!

I hate that I can relate to this. EVERYONE can. Thankfully our kids are resilient and won't suffer permanent damage from our stupid mistakes and lack of patience. I know you all well enough to know your kids adore you, no matter how badly you think you act.
