K yesterday’s post was a floppy flop. Go ask some questions!! I might go on strike because no one loves me!
What a morning I had. I must admit, I was not a very good mommy this morning. I get SO frustrated that I can’t even see straight. It all started with Silas stomping on Isaac’s face while I was changing his bum. I heard a crunch and it freaked me out soooo bad. Silas went straight into time out and I just held Ikey close for a looonnng time. He seemed fine though, I think Silas must have moved a toy on the way over to do his face smashing. Ikey’s face is definitely not broken or anything.
I just got more and more mad. I think a lot of things played into it. I tried to get the kids out of the house but I couldn’t find my keys. We were all bundled and ready to go too. It was awful.
I have a problem with taking things out on my walls, they usually don’t actually break but I guess this drywall is old. I’m glad I take it out on walls and not my kids. On the bright side, I do enjoy drywalling so I have a fun project to do now!! Ha ha ha.
I just got Ikey to bed and then walked out in the grass-way behind out place with Silas for like 30 minutes. Back and forth. Then he sat in a puddle so I got him into the shower and he played in there for a long time.
Brent came home for a bit with a dozen roses and a beautiful card. It was really thoughtful. I needed him badly. Soon my house was filled with people that just kept calling to come over and I needed it so in they all came and it was fun. Phew…I needed it a lot.
Anyway, right now all I hear is quiet. I know soon Ikey will wake up and I will begin losing my mind again. Days like this are crazy. Sometimes I just can easily get to the end of my rope and other days I’m the most patient person ever. I definitely know I need some me time though. I hope I get it soooooon.
