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.
