Mom {guilt}

Okay, so i just clicked on one of the blogs on my sidebar, and the blogger
has all these fotos of her precious son's face....
I just had a row with my middle child tonight.
Probably one he will remember {forever}.
One of those, life's little lessons learned kind.
No glove at t-ball {equalled}
one very upset little boy, who proceeded to show his little
behind...and make a scene
which, I just {cannot} support.
I could see the defeated/frustrated look in his eyes.
He is four.
He wanted {HIS} GLOVE, not the one that was generously offered
by Whatchamacallit (if there was ever a time for an introduction).
I wondered...where in the WORLD is that glove...oh! if only one could just appear..
He acted very ugly.
We left t-ball --no practice.
I spanked him and sent him to bed.
Sometimes, this mommy thing can be so hard/heartwrenching.
I wonder if that {other mother} has these rows with her children...
Or is it always big sky, and bliss.....

I can hope that he has learned his lesson, and he knows not
to pull that one again....
That is why we teach these lessons, no?

I did go into his room and give him hugs and kisses while ago, and he
did smile in his sleep at me....

Who knew that raising decent humans would be so hard?! That is a toughie. We hope they learn the lesson, but wonder how many times it has to be taught! We had to do one of those last night. We left the pool b/c they were whining and bickering - and we had just gotten there w/ picnic, etc... so they cried all the way home. But the stand had to be taken, to set the stage for {actual summer fun} without fighting and kid drama...( and the one that was actually behaving is the sorriest, she was sorry that the rest were fighting.
V-man reminds me of Jadyn in this situation... belongings are particular and specific! And the fallout is huge... ;-)
