I'm counting down the minutes until tomorrow.

Today was a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day! (I may have copied this title, but I really mean it!)

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has these days. I've felt as emotional as a pack of teenage girls. I've had a headache for 2 days and I've felt like I was on the verge of going insane from whining. Did I mention that
my 2 year old is on his fifth day of being sick? And I've told you all before how dramatic he gets when he is sick. He wants the ENTIRE world to know (particularly his mommy) how terrible he feels with his endless whines and grunts and moans. And of course he wakes up multiples times at night which adds wonderfully to the whole situation. (don't get me wrong, I love the guy like crazy, but a mom needs to vent sometimes)

Now, I'm usually a pretty patient and optimistic person. But WOW can kids push every one of your buttons sometimes. Being a parent (especially a tired, emotional one) is not an easy job. I specifically remember mentioning to my coworker when Joshua was a newborn that I felt much less stressed taking care of a patient in cardiac arrest than I did my own baby!  Yes, it really was that hard for me with my first baby.

Days like today make me second guess everything.  And they are a killer for my confidence. I start wondering how capable I really am at this parenting and home-making thing. I even start to wonder if I'm nuts to want another baby (I've been trying to get pregnant for some time) who'll be up all hours of the night. I feel so tired right now as it is and I don't even have a newborn!

But you know what. Tomorrow is another day. It's amazing what a new day can bring. I'll probably be laughing at this post then ;)

Anyone else have a day like mine?


  1. I have those days.. I even put a comment on your blog when it happens. Parenting is harder from my most stressful at work! Really testing my patience. But not all all days are bad.. And love it when baby smile and laughing back at you.. Not every day a bad day..

    1. LuChu,
      In motherhood, I really have to focus on the small amazing moments that children bring. They help make up for all the tough moments. Nothing is much better than having a baby laugh and smile back at you, huh?
