One-Way Ticket To Paradise
I yelled a lot today and I feel terribly guilty about that fact. They drove me nuts. The fighting, the bickering, the binky demands, the thumb sucking, hair twirling, nose picking, yelling, whining and persistent not listening. Today was exhausting. As a parent, it was absolutely and utterly exhausting.
I've tried several times today to regroup and remind myself of my blessings. And, for short periods of time, it worked. Then, they started their nonsense again and I wanted to grab my suitcase and run.
As wrong as it may sound, today is one of those days when I just want bedtime to come as fast as humanly possible. It doesn't mean I love them any less, it's that I've had just about as much as I can handle without buying a one-way plane ticket to a beautiful, tropical island.
