My temper volcano
No mom is perfect. Sometimes they 'flip their lid' too.
This sounded like me this morning. I could not contain myself and just exploded at both my kids. My son who is 11 years, just looked at me (as in What now!!) and my daughter who’s 4 years old looked so terrified that her little chin started trembling. I honestly felt like the worst mum ever.

Why is it that even though we love our kids to death and would step in front of a runaway bus to protect them, we sometimes loose our temper for no apparent reason?

Maybe we need our “Software” upgraded in this age of technology.

At least my kids know that my moment of madness is just that…a moment in time and I’m quickly back to my normal (if you can call any stressed out mum normal) self.
