My head hurts...

... and it does.  My head does hurt.  Partly because it's that time of the month.  But also because I totally lost it on my son today.

I hate it when I lose it on my kids.  And I'm never proud of it.  But in this instance, I almost feel I had reason to.  I didn't and I'm not justifying yelling at the very top of my lungs as we drove home from school, but I was mad.  I was mad enough that I didn't even wait until we were out of view of the school to start.  Who knows who saw me.

It's a frustrating thing when you say very clearly - TWICE - what your very simple instructions are and those instructions are completely disregarded.  Even after I asked him if he understood.

Oh ya mom... totally.

Or not.

We've made up now.  It's all okay.  Except for the self inflicted headache.  I still have a headache.

So, if you'll excuse me I'm going to go lie down now and wait for those 2 Extra Strength Tylenol to kick in.

I think it's safe to say that I won't be yelling again today.


  1. Don't worry. We all lose it sometimes. I don't think it scars them for life :)

  2. LOL!! We have all been there, myself probably a lot more than I will admit to

  3. well you KNOW I've been there and done that too... it is just so darn frustrating being a mother sometimes isn't it?!!

    love you :)
