When patience is nowhere to be found

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say my parenting so far today is hovering around a 3. It feels more like -3, but I am giving myself credit for both children being alive and fed. 

Being patient is so hard when I am sleep deprived. Not just hard--impossible. And patience is exactly what you need when you have a toddler who is programmed to test limits.

Children, I hope to be a better parent tomorrow. If not tomorrow, then maybe sometime in the next month or two. And if not then, just know I am doing my very best.

It's just a phase right? It's going to get better? That thought is the only thing that keeps me going these days.

The longest, shortest time indeed.


  1. Just a phase! Lots of hugs from NC.

    1. Thanks, friend. After two terrible days, today was much better. Both kids napping right now for the win!

  2. Parenting requires patience. And how and why you as a parent choose to develop patience is entirely up to you.
