I've had it

Mood:  Cranky

Kids.  Kids will be kids, and I shouldn't be cranky about it.

I don't sweat the small stuff, like a spilt glass of whatever.  Okay, maybe I complain a little as I clean it up, but overall, my motto is "it's washable" or "it's old, that's ok."

However, if Audrey lets loose with another screech or crying fit just because she has to wait; if Ryan gives me any more crap when it comes to school; if Nolan or Ben look at me sideways with that "yes-sss" hiss that preteens do; if I hear "honey, I need you to do me a favor" followed by a request that requires a lot of time; I'm gonna snap.  (I'm sympathetic to all their situations, really, I am.  It's just been a long day of jumping through the Mommy hoops.)

I'm gonna go through with my threat to get into the van and just keep on driving. 

I'll call them when I can see sand and water.

Great.  I just realized I forgot to go pick up my tire.

Ahhh, sounds like my day today and really almost anyday around here.  Maybe I will meet you where the water crashes upon the sand.  You bring the lime and salt and I will bring the Quervo and shot glasses....You game?

Instinct tells me you had one of those days that most of us mortals experience at some time or other (some of us more regularly than others)!! Sometimes it's good for us to be cranky otherwise we'd end up trodden into the ground. Have a nice bath, a glass of wine and you'll be fine again!! Us Mums are made of strong stuff we just need to re- charge the old batteries occasionally!
