From the mouths of babes...

Tonight was one of those nights you don't really want to remember as a mom. We were late on dinner, baths and bedtimes. Everyone was extra crabby. I felt like someone was screeching fingernails on a chalkboard with each whine, cry, and tantrum. I must have been "nagging" a little louder than I thought because as I was taking Bekah into her room she yelled, "Daddy, you shower NOW!" And I wasn't even saying anything to Tim. She then started yelling, "guys! hey guys! go bed! NOW!" I chuckled and made a mental note to stop yelling. I went to rock Bekah, as is our night time routine. When I do this, the boys all like to take turns coming in to say goodnight. So, Spencer comes in to say goodnight. Instead of Rebekah saying "goodnight" like usual, she said "Mencer (Spencer), you shower now?" Quickly followed by a yell, "GAKOB (Jacob), you shower now!"

So that is pretty pathetic that my almost two year old is mimicking me and it comes out as yelling and bossing her family around. I think I have some work to do in the "meek and mild" department.

Oh yes. The "I've had it" days. We have all been their and luckily we have these little ones to remind us what we sound like. The kids will still love you and forget those days, just let yourself forget them too.
