#MicroblogMonday – Bad day, not bad mom

Today just wasn’t my day. It was the first day Mr Siili was back at work after two weeks home and it felt like nothing was going right.

I lost my temper and my cool many times today. I yelled at the kids much more than I care to admit. I threatened too many things, however, I did manage to keep the threats mostly realistic.

At bedtime, I really lost it and put Paxlet in bed without his teeth brushed or a shower and no bedtime book or songs. He screamed and cried with full body sobs. I told him I love him, I just didn’t like his actions today. Mr Siili came home and saved Paxlet’s bedtime routine.

Tadbit hasn’t been much easier in going to bed either lately. And tonight has been no exception. Screaming, playing, milk, playing, screaming and more milk. Eventually, sleep will come.

I feel like a horrible, no good mom today. But I know that isn’t true. I’m a mom that’s just had a horrible day.

  1. I hate these days. Literally just want to hit the reset button. You’re right, you’re not a bad mom. Just a bad day. And you’ve earned that ice cream. May tomorrow be a better one.

  2. What a rough day! Had a few of those here too. I love this reminder that one day (or several) do not define parenthood or parenting skills. Glad you were able to get yourself a treat later. Hope that some less stressful days are coming.

  3. oh dear. so good that you had the ice cream and brownies later :)) of course you are not a bad mom, and bad days happen to everyone. just keep the ice cream stocked up!

  4. I’m glad you know that in your heart even if you’re not feeling. We all have bad days where we lose our cool. Hope the rest of the week is better.
