Blog a Day Challenge Day 4: The Last Time I Cried

Sharing is caring!

april blog a day

Eek, this is going to open me up in such a big way. I actually cried a couple days ago, right before naptime. Allison has a habit of picking up my shirt in her teeth and pulling away. A lot of times, she gets my skin along with it. I know she doesn’t mean to bite me, because she doesn’t understand there’s actually skin underneath my shirt, but it still hurts and I don’t know how to get her to stop. It’s so hard to remain patient and calm when it happens, and sometimes I do snap and yell “That HURTS!” and she ends up crying. The joys of motherhood!

The other day I did end up crying over it. Not so much that it hurt a lot, because really it didn’t. It’s the shock of it happening and the frustration of knowing that she doesn’t understand what she’s doing, along with my guilt of yelling. Thankfully, little ones bounce back quickly and she was back to happily playing, but my emotions were still there.

I have problems with controlling my frustrations, and I just take it day by day. Slowly but surely I’m getting better, and I know that tomorrow’s a new day to start over, to try again, to practice patience. And thank God for that!

When was the last time you cried? How do you work on practicing patience? Share with us below!

Hi Found you in the Grow your... FB group. I once took the Ultrablog challenge, but I didn't get any new followers and the pressure to write daily was great, so I am not doing the Ato Z

I'm already feeling the pressure from trying to write something every day in addition to my regular posts. =) But I'm just telling myself it's good writing practice!

No judgement from me. I've been bitten by toddlers and the stock gets me more than the pain every time. The last time I cried was on Friday. My job is ending and it's been quite an emotional time for me. Sometimes you need a good cry. I actually felt a little better after it.

No judgement here! The last time I cried was when I read a story online about someone being reunited - always chokes me! I could definitely be more patient - when you find the cure for inpatients, let me know!

The videos of people in the military seeing their baby children for the first time get to me every time. =)

Haha, no judging here! I've seen all of the older episodes but haven't been able to watch the newer ones with the courting and weddings. I hope it comes to Netflix soon!
