You know the rest of the saying. Well, today mama ain’t happy! Everything is just setting me off today. It’s days like this that I need to remember that it’s ok to take a break!! Much better to miss a day of school than to spend the day screaming at my kids for simply being kids. These are the days when educational games and/or educational videos come in handy!
Streaming Netflix to the RESCUE!!! We ended up watching a National Geographic Explorer show about the science of dog breeding. It was quite interesting and informative. Seeing those cute little puppies helped to take some of the edge off my crabbiness too.
Now I’m going to spend time doing what helps me to relax and de-stress, crochet. Also making sure that I take care of myself and do what my body needs to get out of this funk.
I can’t really avoid contact with my kids right now, but I can minimize the friction between us. They are having their screen time and I’m making sure we keep the time regulated. The last thing I need today is arguments over who got more time.
