Super Mommy Forgot Her Cape!!

Have you ever had "One Of Those Days"?? I'm sure my Pregnancy Hormones have something to do with it,but man today was a ruff one. Today started out rainy and wet. So there was no going to the park,or walks, or pool. We were stuck inside:( After Lil Worms afternoon nap I decided to go to Target to get some shopping done and to break up my day. Monkey Boy was awful running away from me and overall not listening. Lil Worm wanted out of the cart. Being that he is 14 Months that was not going to happen. It was so chaotic in there I even forget to use my $5.00 Coupon I had. I put everyone in the car and drove home. I put Lil Worm in his Playpen and ran some Toiletries upstairs. All of a sudden I hear him crying. I run downstairs and ask Monkey Boy "Why is he crying" . He responds" I don't Know" .. I ask Him again. Then he tells me "I jumped in the playpen and jumped on top of him" He is 5 years old and well aware that he is Not allowed in the playpen. I normally pride myself in having LOTS of patience with my Son,but I lost it. Out of Frustration that Lil Worm might possibly be really hurt and the way he acted in the store earlier . I yelled at him and told him to go to his room. I felt awful after I yelled at him and was crying to myself because I did yell. My Husband soon came home from work. He walked in and told me to not look at him like that. He turned around to hang up his keys and I just Burst into tears. I told him that I was mad at myself for yelling at Monkey boy and I sent him to his room. My Husband told me he would go talk to him. He came downstairs after talking to him and then told me that "I need to get a Handel on these situations,because we have another one coming,and I should be able to take care of this. Well this is not what I wanted to hear. I wanted some sympathy. I wanted him to tell me that it's O.K to have bad days, and that every day isn't perfect. Most of all I wanted him to tell me that I am doing a great job with our kids. I then told him I had to escape. He rolled his eyes at me. I told Him I would be back in time to put everyone to bed. It was 6:00 and I was home be 7:45. I got in my car and cried a little more at the fact that My Husband could not understand the situation,and the fact that I could not get him to understand. I went and got a Pedicure. I needed to have a relaxing moment all to myself. I feel better ,and Hope that the rest of the week will be easier.

I'm so sorry you had a bad day:( Taking time for yourself is much needed. I'm sure today will be better.

You ARE doing a great job. Being a SAHM is the most difficult job there is. Dads/husbands just aren't made to understand or give us the encouragement when need when we need it (at least when it comes to days like that.) Saying a prayer for you, sister! Today will be a better day.

If it makes you feel any better that sounds a whole lot like my day today. Sometimes we're just at our wits end and that's okay. (Though I remember having a whole lot of days like that when pregant with my second son.) Your little guy knows that you love him and you truly are a great mom. And you'll be an even better mom of three!

Awww...don't feel bad hon. We all have days like this. I know I do! Especially now that I am pregnant and my hormones are crazy and my husband is always away on business. Men don't really understand because they aren't in our shoes. Be sure to give yourself a little time you deserve it and need it!
