One of those days

Do you ever have one of those days where your kids just aren’t your favorite people?

Today was one of those days for me. Of course I love and adore my babies but man there’s just sometimes I want to go on a Target run without a kid throwing herself down in the middle of the entrance and having a full on nuclear meltdown because I didn’t let her bring her stuffed unicorn in the store.

Motherhood, what can I say?
Why can’t our children let us be the awesome parents we want to be?

I’ve been struggling with my littlest who is almost four years old lately, telling everyone the only thing girl has got going for her is her cute face. I feel like she has been a complete terror and I’m about to lose it.

My husband says she is pretty much my mini me through and through. I don’t know how true that is but man do we butt heads A LOT.

I’ve been thinking about it and realized that as a stay at home mama she and I are together all the time, like always! She’s not in any day care or school yet (that happens next year, yay!). So I’ve started to think maybe she isn’t that bad of a child but I just never get a break from her nor does she gets a break from her mama.

Just last week big sis came home from school and wanted to color alone in her room and I told her no that her poor sister waits for her to come home all day and is stuck with mama so play with her! HA.

I don’t really know where I’m going with this except to vent and realize though I love being a mama, and a stay home mama at that, not all days are going to be hugs and kisses, sunshine and rainbows. There are days of raising my voice, watching my child throw a fit in public and definitely picking my battles.
