A bad parenting day

It has been a terrible, rotten, no good mothering day.
It's been one of those days, you know the ones, the ones you want to forget and pretend never happened, one of those days.
I lost my patience with more than one "nestling."
I hate when I do that.
I hate when I don't handle situations in a better way.
I don't know what it was about today, if it's because Halloween is on Saturday or what, but three of the four "nestlings" have given me fits about one thing or another.
Multiple fits.
I seriously wanted to put them to bed at four o' clock.
It didn't help that they got out of school early today.
I heard, "I'm bored" repeatedly from "A" and constant whining from "C," and "D" pooped in his underwear twice even though he's been doing it on the toilet
for a couple of weeks now.
I wanted to crawl in a hole and never come out.
A day like today makes me question my decision to have a fifth child.
I must be lacking some important parenting skills.
Hopefully a hot shower and good nights sleep will help my parenting blues,
because I can't handle another day like today.
