I was not a very patient mom today. I mean I had my great moments. Like when we went to the pediatrician’s office for Summer Grace’s fever. And while we were waiting the 15 minutes for the strep test results, I found every single scab, old scar, and bruise on Summer Grace and Lucas. And that was funny, because they had to make up a lot of stories for the “old forgotten wounds”.
AND I discovered they each have a hole in their stomach!!
They said it was something called a “belly button”. Yeah. So whatever. It looked dangerous to me.
But oh man. I had a few too many bad ones, where I let my impatience make me into a mean sounding mommy.
I actually just laid on the couch and cried at around 5pm, because I was so tired of being impatient and mean sounding to everyone. I really hate my womanly hormones. And I hate using that as an excuse, but it really was my problem today. So I am re-thinking this whole womanly life I am stuck in.
But Joseph says I would make a horrible man because I wouldn’t want to execute someone by cutting their head off and I hate the word fart.
And Lucas brought me two flowers today. One was a wild daisy and the other was a clover. He is sweet. And he is a boy. And I am going to teach him that cutting heads off is wrong. Because someone has to stop the cycle. 😉
So for now, I am going to soldier on as a Gentle Parent. Today I messed up alot. But I am not going to give up.
Someone has to teach the world that the word fart is inappropriate. And this whole “belly button” problem needs to be solved too.
The boy who brings me flowers….
