Thank God it's Friday

Did you ever have one of those mornings when you wished you could get back in bed and start over?

I am having one of those days!

Alyssa was not at her finest this morning. She was tired! I knew it, she knew it. I was not at my finest this morning either.

I don't want to relive the play by play. I owe my daughter an apology! Regardless of her behavior this morning, mine was less than exemplary! I will leave you with our final comments as I dropped her off at school.

Alyssa: Well you made me late!

Me: I made you late? You were the one wasting time and putzing around! I did not make you late!

Alyssa: Well thanks for making me feel even better by yelling at me!

Me: You are most welcome! Love You!

Alyssa: Whatever!

You have to understand that while it doesn't look too bad on paper, the tone of voice that this was spoken in, NOT VERY NICE!!!

I hope she can get her mood turned around. I certainly was no help! Otherwise, she will probably flunk her spelling test, and I will have to accept partial blame for that. She knows the words, but her mood will get in the way!

I SUCK!

THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY.....

WEEKEND - HERE I COME!

I hope you have a great weekend! I had one of those parenting moments with my DD last night. I flew off the handle. Sometimes the stress of keeping it together all the time for RAD DS makes me snap when she does something that a typical 9 year old would do! We're human. We make mistakes. I figure I have lots of opportunities to teach my kiddos about forgivness! They learn from the bad stuff too...it's just up to us to make the bad stuff into positive learning.

You do NOT suck! Mean people suck. You know who I'm talking about. You are not mean.
The wonderful thing is that you can model an apology then she can mimic you.
Hugs!
