Most of the time, the Noodle Knobs household is a happy one, filled with laughter and silliness. Even when we’re stressed, or the tantrums are epic, or we’re sick, we usually manage to find our smiles amidst the chaos.
There are those days when that’s not the case. Those days when sleep has been too rare, when too many buttons are pushed, when too many outside stresses seep in. There are those days when the only thing that brings on a smile is bedtime–for all of us.
Saturday, I wasn’t a very good Momma. I was overly tired, and every.little.thing. pushed my buttons. I was short tempered, and grouchy, and had several instances where I had to leave the Noodle with the Daddy while I left the room to calm down. I’m normally the more patient of the two of us (even the Daddy will agree), so to reach such a point for me is rare. I…don’t like it.
I know that part of parenthood is that we’re human. You don’t become a parent and just never get bothered by things your kid does (HA!). But ideally those days are few and far between. Because I much prefer laughing and enjoying the crazy antics of my family to losing my cool.
