:Sigh:

So you know those days when you feel like somebody should give you the "Worst Mother of the Year" award? Yeah, I'm having one of those days, or nights, if you will.

I wish I could explain all of the things I did today, but neither you, nor I, have the time.

Let's just skip to the end of the day where I sucked at parenting.

It's bathtime, I'm going to get Miss Baby out of the bath, and I feel the carpeting is kind of wet. Yeah, she likes to get crazy with the water sometimes. She takes a bath in Grammy's bath cause taking a bath in the boys bathroom is ewww, gross. Well, there's carpeting in the bath area. So I get some towels and am soaking up the water that's on the floor. And AS I'M DOING THAT, she takes the a big bowl of water and dumps it right.where.I'm.cleaning.up.the.other.water. ON PURPOSE. (:insert annoying toddler laughter here:)

Mean Mommy Alert!

Lots of yelling, crying toddler, big scene.

And then somehow within FIVE minutes, I feel like the jerk.

What. EVER.

God makes em' cute for a reason....so that you can feel realllllly, reallllly bad when you are impatient with them.

Thanks God.

Typical conversation in our household:
ME: Sigh... well, God makes the ornery ones cute!

MARC: Then they should be even CUTER!!! (Usually said through clenched teeth!!!)
