I am a control freak.
I want things to go my way.
I need things to go my way.
When things do not go my way as they usually don't, I kinda freak out about it.
Ok, I really freak out about it.
I try to control the uncontrollable and generally make myself miserable in the process.
Nap time is at 12 noon. Snuggle time starts soon thereafter. I love this time. I need this time.
Nap time isn't going to happen today. Despite waking up at 5:30, Lion has decided the 15 minutes he slept in the car is enough. I tried to force the issue. I tried to control the uncontrollable.
It didn't work.
I started to lose it. I wanted to cry. So I did the next best thing, I stepped back. I left the room. I let the kids play together. I cried for a few minutes then I just let it go. I breathed in and out. I was okay.
It was okay.
