Look at these precious faces!
You would never think every now and again, when I least expect it, fang teeth grow out and horns come out from behind their ears. Yesterday was one those days they showed up. It was probably one of the worst days for behavior in the Jeffcoat House we have had in a long time. At one point, I went into my bathroom and shut the door and just cried. I felt like such a loser for feeling like I was losing my mind and like I was losing control. After I pulled myself together, I came out of my bathroom only to see Cole pinching Judah's cheeks and pulling his head back and forth! At that moment, for a split second, I could understand how some parents lose their tempers with their sweet blessings! I picked up Judah and put him in his room and closed his door. I grabbed Cole's hand and led him to his room and told him to get into his bed and not to get out of it and did the same for Jonah. I went to each of them individually and dressed them all the way to their shoes and socks while they stayed in their beds. They had to remain in their beds until I came to get them to put them in the van. We went through the drive-thru at McDonald's for lunch (it was only 11) as I explained why we could not get out and play as we had planned to do earlier. We went home, ate lunch, and I put them all to bed where they stayed until CJ came home.
I have decided today is going to be a better day- as we are cooped up inside with all of the rain!
