My Toe... a Bad Parent Testimony




Yesterday I demonstrated for my children what NO SELF-CONTROL looks like when I blew my cool and kicked a table... to illustrate my frustration and lack of authority in my household and show them how to throw a proper and truly self-destructive temper tantrum resulting in a broken Toe...
Not my finest parenting moment... but the 9 month waddle has some extra flair that is kind of humorous if you are not the one experiencing the pain... I am truly not deserving of any sympathy but it has been nice to know I am not the only one who loses control and "parents" with high emotion that is excessively inappropriate and destructive.

Just don't forget; you are a toe-tally awesome parent, wife, sister, daughter, friend.

I couldn't resist and I'm too far away for you to throw something at me. ;-)

Oh Tami, I'm feeling for you. *hug* Don't sweat the loss of self-control it happens to all of us. And breaking the big toe anytime is horrible but being ultra preggo at the same time is just awful. I broke my toe years ago too!
