In this case, I'll briefly share what makes me an ill-tempered mom. I'm pretty sure every mom (and probably dad) out there will be able to relate.
|No joke - the table was clean this morning. Urge to |
go ballistic rising. . . .
- Picking something up and putting it away, only to turn around and find something else is in its place.
- Cleaning off a table before I go to bed, leaving for work with it still clean, and coming home to find it completely covered during the 30 minute period when I wasn't home but my husband and kids were.
- Being asked to find something that isn't hidden in the first place. As in, I sit down for the first time that day, only to be called on to find an item. I walk into the room and it is the first thing I see. I'm getting heated just thinking about this one.
- When items are on the bottom of the stairs, waiting to go up, but everyone walks past them and just leaves them there.
- When something I really like breaks. I have to put on a happy face because I know it was an accident, but deep down I want to scream and cry and throw an adult temper tantrum.
- Making dinner and then listening to the kids complain about eating it.
- A terrible smell in the kitchen that I can't locate.
Okay, this is giving me some serious anxiety. Time to stop before I become the X word above that I can't pronounce.
