After 6 days of having 3 kids and a sick husband, today I snapped. I’m not proud of it, but I feel like it’s important to share real life here in our often over-glamorized square instaworld. 😞 —
So here goes. This morning I went downstairs to put a load of laundry in the wash, and in that short period of time, my girls took every single clean folded sheet and every single clean folded towel OUT of the linen closet so they could make themselves a fort. These children also have a massive playroom downstairs, that they have to be forced to go play in, which I guess is a separate rant. But, needless to say, I lost my shit. All of it. I yelled at them and made them refold everything and put it back. I did later apologize to them for getting so angry. But at the same time, I did kinda mean it. They see how much time and effort I constantly put into laundry, and destroying a perfectly tidy linen closet just sent me all the way over the edge. 🤷♀️ —
I’m grateful that our @ymcawnc now has Sunday kid care, because I was able to take a yoga class and reset myself and get my mind right. It was much needed for my body and my soul, and I felt a whole lot better afterwards. 🧘🏻♀️ —
Parenting is so hard. And I have a lot of patience and calm usually, but this week I ran out. So, here’s to all the moms who lost their shit today, or any day. It happens. And we can get a redo. Here’s hoping tomorrow is better at our house. And it’d be great if my kids could stop destroying everything in their paths too. 😩 just saying...
