Struggling to be gentle and positive

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 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 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!

Yeah and I'm sure being pregnant has nothing to odo with it or the fact that you have two almost "terrible twos" running about:) That's ok I am finally being paid back today for all the times our mothers told us to get our shoes and we knew exactly where they were but we acted like we were still looking for them an hour later......sigh. Hattie had started that....

  2. oops, has...hattie HAS started you think a side effect of child rearing is slowly becoming illiterate? Did I even spell that right?
