this is what you're supposed to look like

last week i had a very bad yelling day (read: i was yelling a lot at my 2 oldest daughters)! when i have days like that i always feel horrible about myself and sorry for my children! so, why, you might ask, do i have bad yelling days? if i knew the answer i wouldn't have bad yelling days anymore!!

anyway, after yelling at nani for, goodness knows what, i went into the kitchen to make dinner. about 2 minutes later nani comes up to my side and says, "mommie this is what you're supposed to look like!" then she holds up this picture that she drew for me, probably for moments just like this:

thanks, sweetie! i'll try to remember that!

Oh I really needed to hear this so I don't feel so alone. I had a horrible yelling day with Cole. I even gave him a kiss on the cheek after he fell asleep tonight (risking waking him up) just because I felt so bad.

That is a really cute picture Nani drew! Not only does she want you happy but I guess she wants you to get a haircut! :) I like your hair the length it is btw I just think its funny she drew it much shorter.

Yeah! It is so nice to know that everyone has yelling days, and it's also nice to know that children are so forgiving!

So cute! I love the thick eyelashes. I'm glad to know I'm not alone on the "yelling" days!
