Since we came home from Florida on Tuesday it has been hard to get back into the swing of things. My Wyatt & Wesley have been very rowdy. Yesterday I became fustrated and quit when we were about 3/4 of the way finished. Just told them to go run & play.
Today.... I felt fustrated again ... as I had to keep them on task. We did better than yesterday but still not up to my expectations.
Dh was outside working in the yard and I needed to talk with him so I left the boys with something to do. Wyatt was in another room reading and Wesley was writing his spelling words.
After maybe 5 minutes they both were outside with us. I was sitting on the swing talking to dh. Wesley asked dh if they could play football. I felt my stress rising..... Dh said they could. So Wesley runs to get the football! He comes back out and says "mom, can we play NOW... please mom?!"
I said "yes." I felt fustrated and angry.... as I sat there on the swing and watched them.... the fustration started to melt away. I smiled. I told Alyssa to get my camera.
