angrymama · 25/10/2008 17:19 my car, otside my house, with no parking place AGAIN, i rolled down my windows and SCREAMED my head off!
that was 3 hours ago, and i fell rather embarressed and yet strangly justified.
I live in a residential street, but opposite Bathroom store, and another store, and if i drive somewhere, i can never park even near my house until after 5pm.
Its so trivial, but all the stresses are adding up, and today i let it out.
the worst thing is that earlier in the day i had a standoff with my daughter about not giving her an icecream cos we had some at home, and she was beginning to tantrum, and was then in the car when i had mine!!

Don't panic!!We all lose it sometimes.why don't you treat yourself with some of that ice cream when your DD is in bed? It's Saturday after all.....

Its OK you are allowed .

Mummies should have special allowances to have mummy tantrums. Who won the ice cream stand off?

If I end up in a stand off if I see I am going to give in I do it in a way that makes it sound like I have won really. LIke "Fine you can have a ice cream BUT only if mummy can have one too RIGHT!!!"

Sometimes it is the small stuff which makes everything seem so much worse! Hope you are feeling better now.

Glitter - sorry will call you soon - has been madly hectic here - one visist on top of another.

Love to my GC!

Hiya Beets worry not I know the feeling!

angrymama · 27/10/2008 17:24

thanks for the reassurance!
I won the icecream when she also demanded a bottle of water, and I said "ok, water or icecream".....she said water!
I know!how cool is that!
feel much better, but a bit sad that as a role model....I throw the worst tantrums, and yet cant stand it when she does hers!
