I think that I have ran completely out of patience for my boys today. I feel bad that It's only 1:00 pm and I am struggling with them already. I can usually hold off until Jer makes it home from work. I just now put the boys down for naps, so I can get away. Usually I only do one boy at a time, but I needed time to myself.
Part of the reason I ran out of patience is because we went to card-making at the church today. My boys are good boys, and they obey fairly well. When we're in public it's a bit of a different story. It's so difficult to discipline in public. I'm always worried that people will think I'm too hard or too easily on them. Or that my methods are not approved of. Does anyone else feel that way?
I hate yelling at my boys. I'm at the point today, that yelling is all I can do when they're tearing apart the house, spilling milk intentionally, beating on each other, pulling all the toilet paper off of the roll, and the wet wipes out, and so on. I am up for suggestions. When I get so feed up I know feel that I'm being a bad mom and I hate it. This venting is helping a bit, that, and the nap they're having. So like I said please give me some suggestions. This is a constant battle in my home.
