Just One of Those Days....
Today is that day. And even as I write my 4 year old is slamming his door shut because he doesn't want to practice his writing, he just wants a Power Rangers Toy. We had a screaming match earlier; yes I went there. I am by no means a perfect mother, though my patience is usually able to be drawn pretty thin before I snap. Well today I snapped.
Honestly, I think it is not much to ask for my son to practice his alphabet, numbers, etc., like he would if he was in conventional preschool. But for some reason, on days like today, my son acts like he hates anything to do with learning, even though it is the same schedule 5 out of the 7 days of the week.
What I don't get, is when he accomplishes a task, he feels so proud of himself. One of his new statements is "I can't do it!" No idea where this is coming from but my God is it ever so frustrating.
I try my best to teach him, and he has learned so much more than he ever did in preschool or daycare. We just sometimes have one of those days. I know I am not a bad mother, it is just one of those days.
So as I vent on here just to feel slightly better about my day, I have to remember we don't pencil in these sorts of days into our busy schedules. Though honestly, at least I would be more mentally prepared for them. They just happen.
Have a great weekend readers!!!
