The *happy sigh* from last post is over. It's so over. It ran out the door as soon as it possibly could. It laughed at me on the way out, even.
Why's that, you might be wondering?
Well. I can answer that with a number.
That's the number of tantrums Anna has had today. The last one - and the worst one - was just a few minutes ago. Great way to end the day.
I would love to say I'm a perfect Mom who did everything right. But I lost my cool, yelled at her, and (of course) made it worse. Sigh... (And now I have intense amounts of Mama guilt. Ugh. Worst type of guilt ever.)
Naturally, the evening got even better when I happened to come across an article that explains why toddlers have tantrums and what NOT to do. (Lose your cool and yell at them? Yeah, don't do that. That makes them feel rejected and awful and it's not their fault and yeah, you suck, Mom.)
So that's my day and evening.
If I weren't crazy and preparing to do this all over again, I would SO be running for a glass of wine right now.
