We have all been sick, some more than others and I must say I have not been in the best of moods recently.
But that is not a good reason to be testy with my own son, especially when he is only five years old.
This morning I just had a hard time letting him do everything his way and because he is a bit sick, but feeling better and feistier and wants to be more assertive and do everything his way…
That leads to him mangling a bagel with a house knife, then being upset that the bagel is mangled, then god bless mom arrives with the calm encouragement to repair the bagel with the cream cheese glue and things are set straight again.
The end result is only that I feel a bit stupid if about it all, but then I get to reflect and shift gears and get back on track and start a new.
