I don't know why but I'm really struggling with being gentle and positive today. I just want the kiddos to behave like angels and make my day easy for me...LOL! Honestly, they're doing nothing wrong...my fuse is short today. I think I'm just feeling stressed over some financial things coming up this month. We have a lot going on all in the same month and I'm struggling to wrap my mind around where we're going to come up with all of the money that we need. :(
I think that's where being a parent can really stretch a person. Gentle, considerate, respectful when I'm feeling wonderful...sure...no problem. Gentle, considerate, respectful when I'm stressed and feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. MUCH harder. Deep breaths help!
