I’m very frustrated today. I need a few minutes to rest and get my own self under control. Two of my children were just plain disobedient and argumentative today. Two were tired. One was hyper. I was wanting to go to a gospel music concert held at our church today. I’ve only gone to one since we moved here and I had Jeremy’s help as well as my in-laws, plus Noelle had been a tiny baby at the time and slept through it. I missed three since then and really wanted to go to this one. Jeremy had a softball game and my mother-in-law was working in the church library. I only got to be there for part of it today and didn’t get to enjoy it since the whole time I was trying to get kids to sit down, be quiet, not do certain things with Noelle that make her be noisy, and so on and so forth. At the end of a song, I gathered up our stuff and left. I didn’t want them distracting anyone else. Once we got home, they were put down for naptime or time-out depending on age. Only Noelle got any sleep. They others wiggled and talked and fussed. There are days when I feel like they want to gang up on Mom. Today was one of them.
I have a headache. I think I’m going to go now.
