A Jonah Day

It just was one of those days.
When I wake up exhausted because the baby decided he needed me more than I need sleep.
When we take 2 1/2 hours to do math. (Not hard, not new, just a bad case of the “don’t wannas.”)
When the boy is potty training and doing well (yay!) but slouches on the potty chair, leading to containment breaches. Not yay.
When I’m the meanest, most unfair, mom in the world because I expect them to do as their told (and told, and told, and told.)

Just a Jonah Day.

    Poor Mom. The best I can do is empathize and tell you that it DOES get easier as they get older.

    Btw, I like the “label” you’ve assigned this one. I think that’s a direct quote from every mother through the ages, amen? THAT part never changes no matter their age…unfortunately. It’s just applied for different reasons and instances. 🙂

    “Jonah Day” is a reference from Anne of Avonlea, referring to a day when everything goes wrong. One of the events of her day is throwing a package she things is a ake into the woodstove to punish a child. The package turns out to be fireworks. So at least that didn’t happen. 🙂
