Today, I needed to give myself a time out....the past few weeks have been pretty stressful in terms of getting a certain project done. The only time I really have to work on it is when the kids go to bed, so I have been pretty much spending from 7-11pm most nights trying to get this finished.
Needless to say, I am exhausted and cranky. When Julien got home from school today, Kyle was napping and we decided to make a cake/cupcakes. I had it all ready so all he needed to do was throw everything in the mixer and turn it on. As soon as that was done, I sent him upstairs so I could continue my work while Kyle napped. So what should have been fun times baking with mommy turned into a really quick get it done and move on sort of thing....
When K got up, he was cranky...Julien was cranky because I had left him on his own, and I was cranky. It didn't make for a good afternoon. I ended up snapping on the kids so often, that finally I told Julien to go to his room and play for a little while; I put kyle in his high chair with a snack and I sat and did nothing for a few minutes.
I hate that I have been so short with the boys (Jules mostly) and really hope that once all this work is behind me things will be better.
