Bad day...

What a bad day. I have definitely had better. DS put another hole in bedroom wall. Tantrum lasted 1 1/2 hrs, the whole time screaming at the top of his lungs while hitting himself and throwing things. I want to cry or throw something myself. Mama said there would be days like this so why do I feel like I did everything wrong? Any other mommies had their heart broken today? All I can do is cry, pick up the pieces and start over tomorrow. Things will look better in the morning, right???crying

 Hugs, mama! We've had days where all I looked forward to was bedtime, but I promise there are better days ahead!

Hugs momma. Days like this are hard on us. We learn to go with flow as they say with our kids. Hope things get better
