I know it may come as a shock (haha), but I have a nasty temper! I can safely say that it is the hardest obstacle to overcome as a Mother. I seem to take one step forward and three steps back. Of course, it seems to get that much harder every day since Rora does everything in her power to push my buttons. With that said, I am trying to be a better Mom and to temper my temper!
Today was a good day. I didn't yell when she wouldn't mind for the umpteenth time this morning, or had a meltdown because she couldn't find the right flip flop (she has two pairs of flip flops that are exactly the same but didn't want to wear the one pair and couldn't find one of the other pair...,) I didn't yell when she tap danced on Ella's toes, or when she knocked over her reward jar, or even when she knocked over her reward jar for the second time and broke it. *all these examples were from before naptime...* I DIDN'T YELL! And for that I am celebrating. Today, I kept my calm. Today I was the Mom she deserves. Today God walked with me through it all and I was better for it. Thank you Lord for today!
