Testing

My son is testing my patience today. Let's hope that tomorrow (and the the of the week) is much better.

Good points:
* He went back to sleep for about 1/2 hour this morning, so the daylight savings time didn't bother our schedule too much.
* I got a 2+ hour nap this afternoon while Matt played with Zachariah.
* I went to the grocery store by myself tonight after Zac went to bed. That only leaves a few errands to run tomorrow with the kid.
* I bought 5 pints of candy bar ice cream (Bryer's Snickers, Twix, Reese's Cup, etc.). Yummo!
* My friend is hoping to come visit me this week!

Bad points:
* He needed an early nap (since he got up a little earlier), then didn't take another nap all day. So by bedtime he was exhausted.
* We couldn't go to church, because Zachariah has a cold (still). I won't leave him in the nursery with a cold (and I hope other mom's will keep their sick kids out too), but he can't sit quietly through the whole service.
* Zachariah had 4 time-outs today. (We just started doing this and it seems to help, but this is the most he's gotten.)
* He sure likes to push my buttons.
* Tomorrow is Monday. No one likes Mondays.

And so I won't dwell on all the bad, there is one final good. I stocked up on Halloween candy the day after Halloween. At least I have that to keep my company tomorrow!

Giving up that second nap is always tough, but you will get through it! :)

it's so bad when kids test our patience... But I think that you did a fantastic job getting your perspective straight!
and your highlights were really great! there is nothing like the market alone when you have small kids!:) (or a nap...)

It's so nice to know that I'm not the only mom with these days!

Harper has been a button pusher, pretty much since birth, so I can totally sympathize with that kind of day. Hope Monday is better than you think!

I'm with you....nobody likes Mondays!

I think the ice cream is a perfect soother!

Mmmmm, ice cream!

My son has been in time out twice today (more for his safety than anything else.) We're all a little sleep deprived around here.

Oh, I feel for you on the "testing." Surely the ice cream will make up for it, though!
