Bad Mommy

Can I just start today over? I'm tired, Audrey falls apart every time she's frustrated or doesn't get her way, Carter is leaving a path of destruction everywhere he goes, and thus, I am impatient and yelling and not too pleasant to be around. I want a do-over. Or what do they call it in golf? A mulligan? Yes, that's what I want, a mulligan for today.

Forgive me kids, I am certainly not reflecting God's love and kindness toward you today... :(

That was me two weeks ago. We all have these days and I look at it as a little reminder that we really do have so many more good days than bad. Be proud of yourself for having all those good days and just be patient with yourself. You are allowed to have these days.

That sounds like me most days recently, the end of the summer, and with the Sept. stress and death of Ralph's step-dad. Chantel was having a bad day yesterday and was lashing out at the babysitter's daughter, which must mean she really frustrates her, usually, just the ignoring or crying. So, we pray things will go better for her and for you too, Amy!

As Karen said, we all have these days. Who doesn't? You are certainly not a bad Mommy. Sometimes when I have days like that, at the end of the night when the kids are in bed as I'm reflecting on the day...I realize the kids were just being kids and It was just that I was not being as tolerant or was running very low on patience that day. Then I do feel like a bad Mommy. So I know how you feel. Good thing I am forgiven by the kids....and God, when I have days like that.
