It was a stressful day. I was telling my husband about it. It began with taking my oldest for her root canal appointment. Yes, we went with the root canal. I’ll tell you more about that another day, but it did go well. My two boys have been running a fever so that just adds to the normal chaos. They need me more than usual. Especially Bobby, my youngest, has been very unhappy as he battles this sickness. It’s just all wearing though if you’re a mom, you’ve been there many times.
During the kids’ quiet time when I can usually relax and recoup a little sanity, I had a Twitter party. I am so excited to be cohosting Twitter parties. This one was quite a bit different from the norm and though it was a lot of fun, it was super stressful. When the party was over, it was time to get the kids and everything began all over again.
As I finished telling my husband about my day with all the drama, impersonations, and demonstrations, I finished with, “Oh and I was a horrible mother and yelled at the kids all day!” I looked over at the children who were listening with rapt attention and said, “I’m so sorry Mom has been yelling and impatient today.”
“Oh it’s okay Mom. This wasn’t your worst day!” replied my daughter. I’m sure it wasn’t. Ha ha!
Yes, please don’t anyone think that I set myself up as the mom to emulate! I do not have it all together. I do TRY to look like I have it all together…Wait that didn’t come out right. What I mean is, I do work at being the mother God created me to be, though I fall short every day, and I apologize a lot!
