    good piece of writing there, E. I specially love the part about sharp elbows and knees. So true, when you're already pissed it's like they try to hurt you with their bodies.
    Hope tomorrow is better. :)
    Though that end part sounded pretty good.

    I can totally relate to that. I feel like a freaking jungle gym most of the time. Pullin' and tuggin'. And I did read "Fox and Sox" as fast as humanly possible last night. I too have days like that.

    I was begging and pleading with Josho to clean his room the other day. I mean, it went on for hours...finally I lost it and yelled, "you're almost finished, just get it done!!" To which he replied "Does that mean you're almost happy?" sigh. I felt SO bad.

    Oh honey I'm there now :(
    HUGE Hugs!
    I am sure you will scrap this, right?
    I saw yesterday on your blog that you were having a bad week....now I'm worried about you! Hope you are okay!

  6. how do you get inside my head E? It's kinda spooky...you must come in there when I'm sleeping or something and take my thoughts away. Thinking of you sweetie. =)

    um, yea...been there one too many days! that part about the too short arms wrapping around you really got me...so, so true...i love that feeling :)
    hope today's a better day.

    YES! you wrote is so damn perfectly E. I have these days. too often. And it just about makes me want to cry when E pops out a "but I love you mommy", or "are you still mad at me?".

    Yep. Have 'em too. But they make us pull closer and nuture on the days we're NOT like that. And, thankfully, we have more days we're NOT like that.

  10. Wow! Great writing and explains everyday here at my house. Love your blog! I linked over here from someone else's...glad I did.

    Amazing piece of writing there Erica. And yes, I've had those kinds of days, more than once or twice.. I think every Mother on earth has. ;)


  12. Anonymous2:03 PM

    Yep. Add me to the "I can relate" list. Some days I just feel so suffocated and don't even want to be in my own skin. I love the words you wrote. Hope you're doing better! ;)

  13. Anonymous2:19 PM

  14. YES, But I have FOUR of the little buggers. :)
    Nice writing - very Kelli Crowe-ish! LOL!

  15. oh yeah, babe. There are definitely those days. Hope today is less trying for you!

    i love you.
    you made me cry.
    love this so much.
    i have so many
    of those days...
    but you're right--
    that snuggle and
    those words are all
    worth it.
    i owe you an email.
    (hope today is better)

  17. awww...
    I know that feeling all too well.
    here's hoping the next day is a brighter one :)

  18. Looking forward to those days...not the bad parts, but the "Love you Mom" parts...at the same time, taking in all the peace and quiet in our house, knowing full well it will never be the same.

    Hoping for better days for you.

  19. so funny E! I had one of those days yesterday. :) Love how you wrote this.

  20. Anonymous1:07 PM

    Hang in there, E! You're not alone ... we have many days like that in our house. Nothing like hearing your little one say, "Mommy, I don't want to see your mad face any more". Oh, the guilt.

    That seriously,
    has to be one of the best things I've ever read.
    Part of me is sad that I wasn't the one to write it.
    But the other part of me is just happy that it is out there for all to see.

    Thank you.

  22. Anonymous12:24 AM

    Yes. Except you have to keep your cool all.
    while somehow I manage to lose it just in the few short hours between work and bed.

    I love this.
    So true.
