is it over yet?

i'm fairly certain i've had enough today. i try not to put specifics on here about how irritated i can get with the kids. but today, i am breaking that rule. big time.

-spilled bottle of RED nail polish all over my bathroom and youngest. i didn't realize she had the bottle, nor that she could twist tops open. who knew?

-someone old enough to know better (not me) wet their pants for the 2nd time since starting school.

-someone stood in their room, took a toy bin, emptied it and peed in it.

i did what i knew to do. i called in reinforcement. i called "pop" and asked him to participate in shaming my child (cause i knew telling pop what he did would be punishment enough...well, after taking the tv away for a week.) what i didn't expect was what he told pop (and micah that i didn't hear.) when asked why he did what he did he said "cause i'm stupid." *siiiigh*

have mercy. what i said was "why did you do that? that was stupid." i guess the lesson i learned is that a 4 year old doesn't know the different between his actions and himself. so yeah, mama had to eat some words today. not the first time. not the last.

does anyone have the number for the valium hotline? cause i need it.

Oh girl! If you find that number, please post it on your blog or at least email it to me! It must be that we've just had a full moon. My little one has been on it the last couple of days, refusing to nap. And he's waaayyyy too young to be giving up naps! Hope things get better for all of us!

I love your blog (don't know you - just enjoy reading it) and love it even more that you're keepin' it real! :)

i am so glad to read this today. you are not alone. i punched a hole in the bathroom door yesterday. at least it wasn't a child at the end of my wrath although i'd like to blame them for being the cause of it. thankfully, my God forgives my imperfections as a mom (because they are MANY), my husband forgives me, and my kids forgive me too... i think. maybe later when they are in therapy, they will have to work through some things. but for now, i am thankful that His mercies are new every morning. He certainly knew i would need them!

linds, i don't know how to tell you this. but you are now part of the 2 boys club. call me if you need help. i'll be in the looney bin. ask for the woman in the straight jacket!

This is so real and I go through it about once a week. So, 52 times a year my children escape death. I think they've got that cat with 9 lives beaten big time.
