Where'd My Kid Go????

Yesterday I had a practitioner come into therapy with us and do cranial sacral with J. OOOOOooooooooo bad decision. I think it was too much for her and threw her energy all out of whack.

It's been all downhill since then. Still sleeping at 7 this morning (should've let her sleep.) Disprespect, not listening, not following directions, bossy, defiant, slow-mo, and on and on and on and on..... Had to leave the 2nd swimming lesson. (There was one at 5 and another at 6 to make up for the problems the aquatic center had last week.) It took her till 9:30 to get breakfast!!!

Good grief! I am tired.

Edited to add: New tapping sequence

Rubbing on sora spots while saying 3 times:
Even though I don't like my kid right now I want to be a loving and kind mom.

Then tapping through the whole sequence:
I don't like my kid right now.

Followed by "I choose to be a loving and kind mom." Full sequence.

Then I did the TAT thing on feeling like a craptastic mom. (Martha, this is on the private blog but I will post about TAT on this blog soon.

Feeling much better now.

We have days like that every once in a while. They stink. They're so exhausting.

I've been trying the tapping and it's really helping me to feel better. ☺

Hugs! It's been a craptastic few days too.

You listen here young lady! You are a great mom! Now shoot all the craptastic stuff where it belongs- right at the RAD and its originators.
Have a drink and some tranq's. Let yourselves have a shitty day.

It is sooo hard not to get sucked into their bad days. Good reminder that even a good thing can be too much sometimes.

Dang, must be this time of the year. Our week has basically blown chunks so you are not alone. Let's eat chocolate together.

What an exhausting day!

We actually "laid off" one of our therapists today because our son is doing so well. There is hope!

One bad day (or even few days) only serves to demonstrate how far you guys have come! This is only a blip that seems worse because you've seen how great she can be! It wasn't that long ago when this day might have felt like a good day!

Hang in there! Hindsight is 20/20 and you're not allowed to beat yourself up over the past. Keep moving forward!

You are SO allowed to not 'like' your kid sometimes...

I swear by the time I get to being a Mom I'm going to stalk you.
