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!
