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.
