this kid

We have not had a good day.

I will spare you the details, but today
she told me I am a terrible mom.
And that she wishes she was older so she could make the rules.
All in Target.
At the top of her lungs.

She is usually pretty good, so when she has a meltdown like this, I am thrown for a loop.

We are currently on different floors of our house, destressing.
(deep breath)
(deep breath)
(deep breath)

I love her to the moon and back but some days I want to lock her (and her attitude) up in her bedroom.
And never let her out.

For.  Real.

We all have these days. And hate these days.

Just know you are a wonderful mom and she is super lucky to have you.

Oh, man.
I'm not a fan of those days.
At all.

And why do they always seem to
happen in public?

Tomorrow will be better.
If not,
eat chocolate.

I'm right there with you! Seriously, in Target. Jaden was screaming that she was not going to leave and I was seriosly considering leaving her... I KNOW you know what I mean. Hope all is well now!

I read your blog all the time...... I just wanted to pipe in that I feel your pain. I have two girls who are now 8 1/2 and 10 1/2 and there was something about Target and my oldest that did not mesh. Many times I had to carry her out of that store kicking and screaming. I think it is all the red. Just stirs up angriness.

Hang in there.....this will pass!

Oh, I SO relate to all of that.

And it's a relief when I hear someone I know who's a good mom, saying the things I feel too.
