Mother of the Year

If you think you’re in the running this year, here’s some good news: your odds have just improved, because I’m definitely not. Not that I thought I was anyway, but the past two days have definitely tossed me out of contention.

It’s Sunday night as I type this. Love Bug is in bed and has been there for a few minutes. I can hear her singing to herself through the monitor. Happy and giggling. Which is far from where she was all weekend. Even 15 minutes ago when I put her to bed and she flat-out refused {again!} to give me, Bella or Beary any love.

I’m far to emotionally and physically wrecked by this weekend to write. I’ve got mountains of work to do, but what I’m going to do instead is cuddle my dogs for a while then go to bed early. Because I’ve got another huge week ahead of me and who knows what mood Little Miss Two will be in. I hope for her happy self, because this constant whinging self brings out the absolute worst in her mumma.

I know she’s only two, but she’s really being a meanie. Her manners seem to have left the building. She’s demanding and then not thankful. She’s hit me and kicked me without apology. I’m being a meanie too, which is no good for either of us. I should cope better, but I can’t. I’m beyond exhausted. I feel most sorry for our mutts – they’ve been as far from us as they can be more times than I want them to be this weekend.

The terrible twos can go away and stay away as far as I’m concerned. I don’t like them. One little bit.

i give up

{I gave in last night and let her have the dummy before she went to bed. It was that or mumma going to the looney bin!}

Of course, I just went in to check on her and she asked for Bella and Beary to give them tickles then wanted me to crawl into her bed. What a bumpy road we’ve been on this weekend!

  1. Ah the terrible twos! Someday you will look back and laugh…. trust me you will! 🙂 However, right now I know how you feel… will it ever end? Well, hang on because they grow up before you know it. We had our share of terrible twos and while we went almost crazy at the time we now look back and laugh…. I’m praying for you through this and by the way you are getting my vote for Mother Of The Year!

    God Bless You!
    Chuck and the collies who are now all through their terrible twos too! 🙂

    Don’t be so hard on yourself! You are doing an amazing job!

  3. Sometimes you just have to wave the white flag of surrender and go along to get along. That doesn’t make you a bad Mumma, it makes you a smart Mumma! 🙂
