Today is one of those days where I struggle to remember thinking that it would be so much fun to have kids.

The Bwun is really adorable. Mostly. And most of the time I enjoy being around him. Today, not quite so much. We got off to a lousy start this morning and now jr is ready for a nap, but refuses to go to sleep, and the Bwun is going wild. This is how two-year-olds are, right? Sometimes I worry that I’m parenting all wrong, and that’s why the Bwun has days like today.

After a series of time outs, though, he’s calmed down a little. The house is (momentarily) quiet. Since getting sick earlier this year – was it really at the beginning of April? – I haven’t had much energy, and I feel worn out after the Bwun throws a tantrum.

Toddlers are a lot of work.
