A humdinger of a day.


I am having a day I tell ya.
A day where I am spending more time yelling than using my indoor voice.
A day when no matter how much I say something, my boys don't hear me.
A day where one boy has spent more time in his room than out of his room.
A day where one boy was sent to his room without his bedtime snack because he was hitting, punching, kicking, yelling and not listening.

Ya. A real humdinger of a day.

So I am hiding out and found this picture of exactly 3 years ago today.

My boys.
My young, sweet, adorable boys.

No matter how much they drive me insane, I still love them with all of my heart.
And I am reminded that time is just going too fast.

Today I wished that they were little babies who couldn't talk back and use violence to solve their issues.
Today I wished they were in school for 12 hours.
Today I wished time would slow down.
Today I wished that my boys would get along.
And listen to me.

Because I may just lose my voice.

Lose your voice! Ha...love that! I've totally had those days before too. Hope tomorrow is a better one for you.

Hopefully they'll get a good night's sleep and wake up angels tomorrow that makes you forget all about today. :)

Ohhhhhhh how I feel you on this one!! I usually freak out, have a melt down and then come apart around bedtime. About the time I start feeling really sheepish and guilty about that the kids are FINALLY asleep. And then they look like little angels. Sigh.

The picture by the way, is adorable.

I feel you! My daughter came home from school in such a foul mood. I pray both yours and mine wake up with moods much improved so Mommas can rest their voices. ;)

You know I'm gonna say it... We ALL have these days! Yesterday I called my husband at work and told him he needed to come home NOW. I think he heard the desperation in my IM because he came home STAT.

They are cute though...

Those are the hardest days. I feel for you, and hope that tomorrow goes a bit better. My son is currently fitting about everything..and is about to hit the hay with our his bed time story! That is however a cute picture, and time is definitely going way too fast.

I hate those kinds of days........... oh yeah that sounds like many a night trying to get my kids ready for bed.... when you want to just run screaming from the house never to return...... good thing it doesn't last forever! Chin up!

Oh, girl, I hear you. Why does it seem when your last nerve is a frayed mess, they have to stand squarely on it while they fight?

you just can't help yourself--falling in love with them over and over again. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

It's a good thing that kids are cute, because somedays it's so tempting to start thumbing through the Yellow Pages -- the adoption agency section :)

Yeah, when the kids are all little they drive Mom crazy because she gets no time to herself. But their problems are so small. And they are so sweet and loving and easy-to-please. I'd go back and do another year or two with my little little kids. They grow up so fast. With much bigger problems, that sometimes require Mom to raise her voice to even be heard! And then they REALLY grow up and move out. So I will try to enjoy even the times when they aren't so little, because at least they aren't already grown up!

Ain't it the truth!

I had to come look at your snow photos of Studley cause there is a dog at the top of IheartFaces website that looks like him, but he is brown. :(
