And so it goes

There are times as a mother I feel that all I do is yell at Princess. She is in the age where everything is a test and a power struggle, and where everything has to be negotiated. I get very tired of yelling. It does no good. So I try to reason, which also does no good because she is only 3 going on 4. So then I am back to yelling. I don't just yell whenever, I do try to stay calm for a bit, but then she just goes on and on and whines, which is like fingernails on a chalkboard as far as I am concerned. Right now she is in her room screaming bloody murder as I type, she is in a time out right now. She's screaming "mommy mommy" in that "if you don't come right now I'll just die" tone. It tears my heart out. But then again I can't let her get away with being so whiny and bossy and mean. So there is the struggle, I love her, but right now I don't like her, which makes me feel awful to admit. But there I said it. Only a few more minutes of time out, and maybe we can try reason again. If I could only stay calm. Not an easy thing to do. She just sobbed out "I really want you mommy!" Can we say manipulation??? You'd think that I put her in the closet with no lights on instead of her room where she has toys galore, which right now she refuses to play with because I think then she knows she wouldn't sound as pathetic. Oh well, this too shall pass, I love her with all my heart and I know that when she's done with her fit she'll realise she loves me too. Life goes on!!!
