You are a complete failure as a parent?
I feel like such a jerk at the moment.
I am really, really tired; a combination of my kids literally waking up nearly every hour from midnight to 6am every night in the past few weeks (I seriously can't remember the last time I went to sleep and then woke up in the morning), and if one of them hasn't woken up that hour, I'm woken up by Sabriel either kicking the heck out of me, contractions, or major leg cramps.
I'm running on low.
I'm tired of hearing "mommy, mommy, mommy" and feeling like I"m being ordered around all the time.
I'm tired of picking up crap that has been pulled out all over the house. How many freaking times do I have to say, "No!"
I'm tired of none of my clothes (maternity included) fitting normal.
I'm tired of my kids not following directions.
I'm tired of being stuck in the house with them, especially since we haven't really been able to go do fun stuff because of being sick, or a broken arm, or pink eye...
And what do I do? I take it out on my sweet child who is scared of having her hair washed in the sink.
I yelled and I screamed and I felt so ashamed when my husband took over, because I was losing it.
I hate being trapped in this sinful body, I hate letting my brokeness control me.
So now, now that I've apologized to my two year old for yelling at her and freaking out on her because I
am burnt out, I'm going to snuggle with my kids and watch their "dragon movie" and feel horrible and pray that tomorrow is a day full of grace. I know it will be shown to me; I just pray that I can show grace too
