Not only did Gracie have an accident at the park...on the playground equipment...but she had a meltdown of epic proportions last night.
I'm at a loss about this parenting thing. Just when I think we are making progress, everything falls apart and we take 3 steps backward. It's enough to drive me to drink...if I drank...but I usually don't.
I just really wish there were an instruction manual that worked. Everyone has ideas and they are all great, but they only work about 3% of the time.
I've decided to give myself a bit of a break. Barnes and Noble is giving free chocolate to people who bring their nooks in. Godiva and I have a date.
Graciela and Lucas,
If you are adults and reading this, I was at a serious low point when I wrote this. You think you had it bad? I felt like crying at every moment. If you have kids, you'll feel this way too. This isn't a threat or a wish that bad things will happen to you. It is just a fact. Parenting is hard and toddlers are crazed. And they drive you to drink alcohol or Starbucks, whichever is closest.
