Out of Time Mom

Bringing the best of the web to you.

I had one of these mornings.

This thoughtful poem by Single Dad Laughing touched me this afternoon so I’m sharing it with you. I had a snippy morning with Out of Time Toddler and her 2 year oldishness. Sometimes I feel like it’s a constant battle with her independent spirit, but it’s one of the things I love best about her. It wore on me this morning in my sleepy condition and I snapped at her impatiently, that ugly part of me that wanted to crush her stubbornness to just get her to do what I wanted, when I wanted. Tonight, I will be extra tender and patient with her.  Mommy’s sorry, kiddo.
