Crappy Monday

I think I despise Mondays. I had a hectic weekend and Sunday nights I start to dread Monday. I know that I will be "single parenting" until Saturday again. (hubby works second shift) Rebecca has choir on Monday nights so it's always insanity trying to get homework done, dinner fed, breathing treatments done, feedings finished, make sure I have all the medical necessities and get out the door. Ten minutes in the car can seem like eternity. The kids were unusually grumpy this afternoon and once I've exhausted my "calm mother" approach, I'm screaming to be heard just to have some peace in the car----IN TEN MINUTES. Get everyone home get all in bed and begin to have that nagging guilt about what a "bad" mother I am. How I feel like I'm not doing a good job with them and how will they turn out when I've done so poorly.....sometimes I feel like I'm running in circles. Crappy Monday....can't wait until tomorrow.

Hey, don't beat yourself up. We do the best we can. I know this is corny, but tomorrow is a brand new day. Have a good night.

Vickie's right...we just do what we can. And try to do better every day. I hate Mondays too!
