Do you ever plan something out...imagine how epic its going to be and how happy your family is going to be as result--only to have it go down in flames and NOT AT ALL what you thought.
Yeah, thats been me the past two weekends. Had great plans for me and the kids only for one of them to ruin the entire evolution with their misbehavings. SEVERE. MISBEHAVINGS.
And, to add insult to injury--I have family in town. So they probably think I am a horrible mother who always loses her mind on her kids and acts like a tempermental butt head with them.
I swear I'm not.
I do love my kids and I am mostly patient with them all the time. But sometimes they have this way of getting under my skin and I completely fly off the handle and lose it.
I feel like this means that I need to look inward and turn to my faith and the Word to get through this. And I should.
But honestly, that seems like soo much work right now. I know, I know. Saying that out loud makes me a terrible person. But I am a bit tired, stressed, its the holidays, I miss my husband and I am growing a baby from scratch.
Not an excuse. Believe me I know. I see these other moms who also have spouses who are deployed and they seem no where near as lunatic-ish as me on a day to day basis. Whats their coping mechanism? Whats their story? What am I doing wrong?
Done with the rant. And the whining. Going to indulge in McD's and feel better.
