I challenged Isaiah to a pumping contest on the swings.
And totally won!
I am glad to have proof of my fun-ness. Because today was not one of those days. Today was a day in which I felt like throwing in the towel.
It wasn't anything major or even out of the ordinary. Just another day of siblings taunting each other. Yelling and screaming. With a dash of disobedience and defiance. Just enough chaos to make me wonder if I actually have any control over my children or not...
My verdict at the moment: NOT.
So I sent everyone to their rooms and read a parenting book and waited for their dad to come home. (Spoiler Alert: he came home early and the day ended well. Because he is the true fun parent.)
I am hoping tomorrow will be a fun mom day. We could all use one of those again...
P.S. Apparently we need a new hair trimmers. Ours is on the fritz! Speaking of someday. Someday I would like to send my husband to the barber instead of cutting his hair myself. Someday that will be in the budget, right?!? (Sorry that was an unrelated tangent.)
