So as always, Fridays I like to talk about the crappiest thing I have done during the week. Sadly, this week, it wasn’t just one event. It has been on going for me, all week. MY KIDS HAVE BEEN MAKING ME CRAZY. I don’t know what is happening. Nothing with them has probably changed, I just have had zero patience. And when you have 3 small kids, the only thing you need to survive a day is just that…patience.
I’ve done a lot of scolding, sending to rooms, me walking out of rooms to take a breath. I’ve done it all. A lot this week. I refuse to blame it on all of the things I need to get done during the day, that I can’t seem to do, because I am in full parenting mode. And I know I can just stay up later, wake up earlier, do more during the baby’s nap time, while the older O’s are resting. But whatever the reason is that I have been extra frustrated this week, I just need to remind myself…. it is not their fault.
They are kids. It is their job to be wild, crazy, annoying, rebellious, needy, cranky, and whiny. That is all they know. Now if my husband was acting these ways, well that would be another story. But they are kids… our kids. They get these things from us!!! They are only acting out because it is a part of their journey. I just need to figure out how to make it a part of mine without getting so feisty.
So this week, I was just shitty for not recognizing this earlier. And trust me, I am not beating myself up over it. I know, I know, we all have our moments. I am just here to openly tell you my crappy moves through this blog. Maybe in hopes that someone will relate. Maybe someone else will wake up with some rage and read this and be like “Oh yeah, I’ve kinda been a bitch too. Maybe I should settle that shit down.” So that is my plan. We are embarking on the weekend and we have lots of fun shit planned, we don’t need my cranky ass getting in the way. Lord knows we have the best three employees here at the O House for that.
