This morning way sooo frustrating! It started out fine. I thought we were gonna be on time and good until right before we left the house for school drop offs. I went in to grab caroline and change her, and she's covered in poop, again! This is like a daily thing now. She's teething and its giving her diahrea. So, I get her cleaned up and changed and in the car, and start drivng. I look. Over at ella, and her hair looks funny, it was fine when I combed it at home. She's gotten toothpast all in it! Then I notice that her lips are chapped and there's toothpaste on her face. She has chapstick in her bag, but she never remembers to use it. (Yeah, mommies getting homonal here). Then her fly is donw! So I ask her to zip it, and she's starts acting like she doesn't know how. Yeah, she does, she's 5. Haha gah! So mommy snaps. Not great. I felt like crud for snapping at her. Then we go to drop wyatt at preschool next. Once in the parking lot drop off, I move him to the front seat to expedite the process ( they r picky about what side to exit from). And he's gotten boogers all over his face hands, and shirt! Gah! He has allergies. So, I'm frantically wiping him and blowing his nose with wipes. Get him cleaned off and at school, thankfully without snapping at him. Sigh. I go to drive off and take a sip of my coffee id grabed from the drive thru, and spilled hot coffee all over my shirt, lap, everywhere! Omg tha t burned! Yeah, the people didn't put the top on right. Yay! So there's my hormonal, fabulous morning for ya getting 3 kids up and ready for the day! Ill be so happy when my hormones are back in check, and mommy has her patience back. and I feel soooooo incredibly guiilty for snapping at ella. Poor girl had tears in her eyes when she left. I realize she's 5, and I shoulda handled t better. Now to figure out how to make it up to her, and lock myself away from the general public while caroline naps.....
Been there. I feel guilty to when I snap at him, when I could of probably controlled it. I've been really good about my blow ups...I haven't had any in long time. You know she'll be fine, but just try to make it up to her.
Are we "supposed to be" calm patient perfect mommies? Of course...but we are HUMAN! :-) Don't beat yourself up...she will have forgotten about it by the time you pick her up; and if she does talk about it or something, you can have a talk with her about how mommies get mad sometimes too, and that you know you shouldn't have yelled at her. That way she gets that you know it wasn't ok, and you set the example. I have been snappy too, especially in the mornings. Its tough, but if that's the worst thing they experience from us during their childhoods; we will have done ok. ((Hugs)) Hope your day gets better.
