Sigh. Scream. Sigh. This is how I feel right now. I'm at the END of my rope today! What a horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE day. I don't know what the deal is, but my 10 year old is being a major brat. Seriously, the last straw was her attempt at tracing her hands for a project we were working on. I suggested that each of the three of them help one another with tracing hands, but the boys were determined to do their own and were done tracing in no time at all. Well, said 10 yr old decides to just throw a fit about it, attempting to get them perfect, crying, erasing, whining...the whole thing. Seriously???? I know tracing our hands isn't always that easy, but suck it up and do it!!! She got them traced, rather sloppily, but I told her to cut them out of which she did the worst job ever. I just lost it. Told her to clean up. Put everything away. She didn't get to partake in the project that her brothers had already FINISHED. And you know its bad when she finishes before Josiah!!! So, she got some more spankings and I sent her to her room. I don't even want to LOOK at her right now- it will not be pretty! I'm just fed up. This is the project the boys got to make. We've been studying birds in science and as our last project they made ostriches :) I love them!!!
Sometimes I just feel like I could really explode when I get so mad. I hate that feeling, ya know? And I've been praying, reading my devotions and yet still feel like such a FAILURE. The sucky weather doesn't help either...cloudy, rainy, windy...I need some SUNSHINE in so many ways! Anyway, thanks for listening to me rant!
