Today I feel overwhelmed. I screwed up. I yelled too much. I lost control.
I'm embarrassed. Part of me feels like this is my punishment for earring yesterday that I was good at this. Part of me feels like this is because I'm weak, bad at mothering. Like I'm just whining and saying I feel overwhelmed will make people not like me, think poorly of me.
I feel like the things that make me feel crazy: my kids roaring, big yelling that she hates me, little pulling an egg off the kitchen counter, like these things are really no big deal. That they wouldn't make other people feel overwhelmed.
But then I realize that if I don't say out loud how hard I find it, you might think you're the only one too.
You're not. I promise.
