I definitely lost the battle today (and my sanity, and my temper).
The destructive power of a 2 year old on a rainy day is remarkably similar to a big puppy. I didn't sleep worth a darn last night (shoulder/neck issues), and was woken at 5AM (by said 2 year old) thanks to the thunderstorm. All a recipe for an unhappy day.
God grant me the grace and patience to be a better mama tomorrow.
