Good Days and Bad Days!

Does this happen to anyone else? Yesterday, I was tired and grumpy and that really rubbed off on the kids. By 2pm, it was really bad! I am amazed that the kids seem so sensitive to my moods...or perhaps its the other way around? Am I grumpy because they are?

Anyway, today was completely the opposite! I was really motivated to get the house clean and was happy that it was Friday (George home for the weekend and DATE NIGHT!) and the kids really reflected that mood. They were happy and SO helpful...even Natalie, which doesn't happen all that often. Well, Sam was in a bit of bad mood, but the vacuum cheered him up quite a bit:)

I guess what I am saying is that I am so thankful for the good days...I feel like a good mom and housewife. And I always feel great when my house is clean. It also helps me to forget about the bad days. :) And we could all use a bit of that!

It is the same way at our house, except that it usually consists of me thinking, "Gee, why are the kids being so crabby?" And then I realize it's because I'm being crabby...

I totally hear ya, my kids totally respond to my moods. I'm glad today was better, you are a great mom and wonderful wife.

I think if someone doesn't agree with you they are not telling the whole truth...because no matter what we all have those days.

This is good to know, before Alex gets a little older. Although, I think he has chilled out a bit since we've gotten more used to being parents. We're not so nervous around him anymore.

You should just call me! My kids love to play with yours. I'd be glad to take them on any one of those days. We all have them.
