Some ugly reality

4:44 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
I've discovered something about myself that I don't like.  I have no patience with my kids.  I try, I count, put myself in time out.  But there are days I wonder how mom's spend all their time with their kids!  I kept both of mine in full time daycare through the summer.  I've had them home for 3 days straight and I'm at wit's end!! I was going to take them to the lake today but Layla is still sick with high temps and her vague complaints of a sore throat and ears.  Bleh.  We've blown bubbles, played in the wading pool, colored, played with the Wii.  They're still begging for more and I'm done.  Thinking I may pop open a bottle of wine and have a glass.

cindy you love your children and they know it and you know it. alot of us mothers arent built as super patient tv moms. im not either. im very impatient and unfortunately ive passed that right along to my children. my mother was impatient too.

another reality is that i dont really like other children. theyre cute. i dont dislike them, i just dont want to have to put up with them....so we never really had children visit except on the rare occasion because i was IRRITABLE AND IMPATIENT.

dont worry. its hard too when you dont have another parent to hand them over to. been there done that
