Crying Jag

The kid is driving me nuts with his crying the past few days. I am not sure if he is still overly tired from the trip, or still getting over his cold, or what – but I nearly just lost it on him. I keep trying to remind myself he is a little kid, he doesn’t know what he is feeling, he isn’t doing it to manipulate me (he really isn’t)… but it still just feels like finger nails on the chalkboard when he wails for absolutely no reason. I finally just walked out of the room with a quiet but stern goodnight.

I feel like I have had zero patience for him lately, which is so not fair to him.

I know every mom goes through this, but it feels good to rant about it for a few minutes.
