Mental Notes For Mommy…Patience or Lack There Of

I have learn many things through trial and error or heck just by
simply living my life. Something may happen and I say
“Make a Mental Note of that for next time.”
Motherhood will test your Patience 
in every way, shape, and form. 
I feel as though I am a pretty patient person.  With that being said, one of the biggest curve balls motherhood has thrown at me is my ability to remain patient.   A perfect example was yesterday.  The morning went well.  Everyone got up and dressed with no major issues.  Big B was of course in school all morning.  The younger two played nicely and the sweet baby I have been watching was great. 
Then lunchtime came and  the storm began to roll in.  Big B came home and instantly began to pick at his younger brother.  Baby B started to turn into a grumpy bear.  Thankfully he went to bed and slept very well.  All was calm for a few hours and then the storm arrived in full force.  Big B was being quite fresh. (Big Surprise!)  He wanted to wake the baby up to play.  I love Big B but he gives me a run for my money.  He tests every ounce of patience I have.  That ended and on to the next.  
Baby B woke up and was unhappy from the start.  Big B got him out of bed for me because I happened to be feeding the little baby.  From that moment on until he wen to bed 5 hours later he was either whining, crying, or clinging to my leg.  These are the days my patience is worn very very thin.  
I want to yell, and sometimes do, “Calgon Take Me Away!”  Bedtime and a glass or two of wine usually do the trick.

    Bickering and whining is so tough to take sometimes. Wine can really take the edge off occasionally!

  4. Ugh. I feel your pain. I have a 15, 13, 7 and 1 year old. They wear me thin sometimes. Heck, if I weren't breastfeeding I'd have a glass or two or three of wine. πŸ™‚ Hang tight. You're not alone!Thanks for stopping by the other day. I'm slowly playing catch up. Following you via Google Friend Connect!Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud@TweetingMama
