Getting Past a Tough Day

Yesterday was a Mother's Day Out Day and Mason had a less then stellar day that landed him in a time-out in the Director's office for 15 minutes. I'm trying to get over it and just accept that children go through phases and this shall pass.  That doesn't mean that I'm going to stop parenting him, but that I will not allow it to bring my whole day down.  Yesterday was also filled with him telling me "No" multiple times and then spitting in my face which I'm not going to lie...sent me into a mommy filled rage that no one should ever see. I sent my little man to bed with no books and no sweet cuddles.  Once I finally sat down to calm down the tears started flowing.  It was one of those days where you question everything about you parenting skills and which direction to go in.  Today is a new day and a fresh start so we'll see where this will take us.  I just want to say in no way, shape, or form am I complaining because I'm sure there are man parents out there who would love to have the hiccups I'm faced with over there's any day!

Count the Rainbows not the Thunderstorms~

Mason and his buddies on C Lane.  We get to watch amazing sunsets like this almost daily.

Oh man, sorry that yesterday was so rough! It WILL pass - it just takes time. If you weren't preggo I'd tell you to come over for a glass of wine the next time that happens! Only a few more months ;)
