This is also the theme song of this week. "You've got to know when to hold 'em, Know when to fold 'em, Know when to walk away, And know when to run"
It has been one hell of a week. I have been incredibly exhausted all week. Like going to be at 8:45 at night exhausted. On top of that, Max has been really pushing his limits this week. That has included a lot of back talking, throwing things and screaming. I have tried really hard to be understanding but everyone has their limits.
Some of the more delightful moments this week have been:
- Banging his cars against the fish tank and causing mini sunamis
- Pouring out two bottles of shampoo, a bottle of conditioner and a tube of face scrub in the shower
- Laying on the ground in my office parking lot and sobbing over chicken nuggets
- Shaking out an entire bag of popcorn in my bed
Given all of that, I decided we had had enough this week. I picked him up this afternoon, drove to the grocery store, bought a box of frozen waffles, drove home, toasted these culinary delights and plopped him down on the couch to watch the Minions. I even treated him to some M&Ms!
Everyone has those days or weeks. And sometimes you have to accept that you can't make it any better. You just have to relax and take some quiet time to recharge. And pray to god that tomorrow will be a better day!
