One of Those Days

It's been one of those days...you know the kind that at the end of you just need to sit on the couch with a gallon of Ben and Jerry's ice cream and sulk...yup it's one of those days.

After my day at work, I went to pick up my munchkins at Bup and Guck's house. But, of course, Noah decided that he wanted to be a little monster and was not going to go home without fighting me on everything I asked him to do. He was embarrassingly rude and by the time I finally got him in the car, I was ready to drop him off with the next person I saw walking down the street. He whined the whole way home, and once at home, he whined about having to eat dinner. I tried to be nice to my hubby despite my my son's behavior, but was not successful and I felt terribly guilty for being so mean. As I started dinner, my head felt like it was about to explode from whining overload. By this time, Noah was whining because I would not give him orange juice and Maia was whining because I would not let her cook with me. She managed to climb onto the stool in the kitchen to try to see what I was cooking and proceeding to fall off the stool just as quickly as she got up. Instead of being worried about her and checking to see if she was okay, I single-handedly won the award for the world's worst mother when I rolled my eyes and said, "You've got to be kidding me!"

So who wants to bring me a gallon of ice cream to celebrate my award?

I totally know how you feel. Yesterday I totally wanted to tear my hair out because my middle child was being such a rotten stinker. He didn't want to eat. He was destructive and angry. He even told me that he hated me and stuck his tongue out at me!!! I wanted to hide in my bedroom once my husband got home and leave him to deal with the little terror that I of course still loved. You're not alone!!! Hugs to all of the mamas today! May God grant us all special graces, mercies and a whole lot of love and patience!

Haha- I've done that before- "shouldn't have been climbing up that stool!!" with a snotty look on my face. Feels great- definitely feels like you should get a mommy medal at the time. :)
Caleb knows when I'm getting frustrated too. Then he really lets loose and pushes absolutely every button he can. My blood boils and I lose it.

Ice cream sounds great.
