I am in a bit of a funk right now.
I have a headache, a cold with a nasty cough for 2 weeks now, and my tail bone issue which still makes getting up from sitting pretty painful. Oh and did I mention that every time I cough it hurts my tail bone....
Normally this wouldn't get me down, but then you add in two children. One that is especially spirited. I love her to pieces but I don't like the person she can make me become some days. I was actually reading a Parents magazine a month ago and came across an article that talked about raising a spirited child. It fit her a to a tee, and it made me feel better to read about other children that fight to wear shorts on a winter day only to take them off 2 minutes later. I don't like that she can get me so agitated that I have to lock myself in a seperate room for 5 minutes and do deep breathing techniques. I don't like that I say things that I thought I would never say to my child. I don't like that at the end of the day sometimes I just can't be around her for a while.
This mothering thing is hard. And I'm scared to think about how I am going to handle 3 kids in January.
