Ben was ornery today. He got up from his nap before I did. He chose to wake me (and Elise) by having a screaming tantrum about 6 inches from my face. Very unimpressive stuff. The afternoon through bedtime continued with about the same behavior. And I hate to say this (I feel like a terrible mommy when I say this), but I was not enjoying him. I was faking enjoyment through some parts, but overall, I just kind of wanted to curl into a ball. And maybe rock back and forth a little. I got him in the shower before bed, told him he could play for a few minutes and that I’d be back to wash him up.
This is what I came back to…..
I love being a mom.
What did your kid do today that made you smile?
