Moods- Take 'em or Leave 'em

I'm feeling rather moody tonight. I'm not sure whether it's hormone related (doesn't seem like it should be), or if it's just because I had a rough day with Zachariah.

I'm a woman...do I really need a reason to be moody? I just am!

This probably is the worse time to blog, but that's what my blog's for right? It's my blog and I can complain if I want to.

Zachariah was stubborn, disobedient, and quite rude to me today. Enough was enough, so I sent him to his room for quiet time. He was not allowed to get up until Daddy came home. (He was in his room for about an hour and a half or so.)

Then while being banned to his room, he spilled his water bottle and didn't tell me about. I found half of his blanket soaked when I put him to bed tonight. That made me even more upset about the situation. He also got his CD player taken away for the day/night, because when I escorted him back to his room (one of the many times) he had his robe over the CD player which I didn't think was safe.

Maybe I was too rash about some of the things I did. But I'm telling you, I tried my hardest to keep calm and handle the situation(s) at hand.

I felt like he was pushing my last ever-loving button.

Not my finest day as a parent.

We all have those days! I can remember as a child getting into trouble, and while I was still upset about it the next day, when I went down to breakfast my mom acted like nothing had happened. It was so confusing for me until I was old enough to understand forgiveness. All was forgiven from her end and she loved me more than she had the day before. That's just how it goes. I find I have a little trouble with that end of things as a parent myself. Sometimes the kids hurt my feelings but when I stop and look at it I realize it wasn't thier intention.
When he wakes up in the morning give him extra hugs and hope for a better day. I'll hope along with you!

Those days leave me emotionally and physically spent. Here is hoping tomorrow is better!

yes, we all have them. just do better tomorrow. sometimes I think they do just try to push our buttons. As long as the good days far outweigh the bad (which I know yours do), I wouldn't worry about it. One day at a time.

I am sending BIG sympathetic hugs your way. Been there, done that. Little people can be adorable and intolerable. It's a good job they're cute.
