I try very, very, very hard to keep my blog a positive place. A place free of complaining and negative thoughts. I also try very hard to focus on all the wonderful things about my girl, because she is so incredibly wonderful and there will be plenty of people that will try to bring her down in her life. Her mom shouldn't be one of those people. Don't put rocks in your child's pockets if you want her to soar. This a quote that hit me when I heard it and I make every effort to keep AC's pockets free of rocks and such. I said all that to say this.
Today was horrible.
Sometimes we have horrible days. I stayed up way too late last night and was running on fumes when I woke up. AC seemed to be feeling the same. She was whiny and crabby all day. She spent more time in time-out than she did any where else. And, yes, people of SuperTarget, that was my child you heard screeching for almost 4 continuous minutes. Sigh. I was so frazzled by the time we got to the checkout that I left half my bags and had to go back in. And let this be my most sincere apology to every mom that I've cussed under my breath while her child was wailing and flailing at the store. I'm happy to say that the day ended well. Daddy came to the rescue. He let his girl help him clean off the patio. She was in heaven.
So, we are all going to bed early. Tomorrow WILL be better. I've already decided, and the beauty of it all is that it is my decision to make.
