What a failure
Tuesday, December 16, 2008
I'm feeling like a complete failure. As a mom that is, we are not even going into the food business.
I have been in such a bad mood today it isn't even funny. I think between the weather (rain and cloudy all day) and the monthly, it is just beating me down. Yeah, I know I'm letting it do this to me, but I don't know how to fix it. I did so good with the parenting thing yesterday. Lizzie and Anna both had a candy cane and Lizzie's was broken. Well she thought it was the end of the world and pitched a fit, a really high pitch one. I explained to her that it was ok and there was nothing we can do and for her to just eat it. Well little miss thing wasn't gonna have it and the fit continued even higher than before. So I took the candy cane from her and put it in the trash and told her no more. OH BOY I hadn't seen anything yet. If I would completely understand my 2 year old, I know she would have used some words that needed a mouth wash after. So I send her to her room and told her that when she was done crying she could come out. And about 15 min later she did and everything was fine.
So that was a really good experience. I stood up to her and made sure she didn't get her way. Sure it made me feel guilty to see my baby crying so hard and begging for her candy cane. But I bet you next time she won't pitch a fit like that again.
Now today on the other hand my 5 year old had homework to do and it wasn't pretty. I had to sit her in a time out, I think 3 times. Handling that attitude took just a lot out of me. And of course there was a ton of other stuff that made me go off the deep end, and lets just say they went to bed early, 6pm that is. Now I'm feeling bad for being a bad mom and not being able to handle it the way I should.
Ok, that is all I had to get off for now. If my thoughts come back later I might be back.
Have a blessed night
