I’m a Screaming Mom.
Back in the day, before I had kids, I swore I’d never be THAT mom… the mom who is always yelling at her kids for one thing or another. And I certainly would never be THAT mom who pulls her kids aside in the grocery store and makes a scene threatening them within an inch of their lives. No way, not me. I wondered why those crazy women even had kids if they were just going to yell at them all the time. Shame on them.
But, guess what?? I’m sooooo THAT mom. I scream constantly. All day long. For one thing or another. I’m starting to feel like my Screaming Voice is the only voice I have anymore.
I really, really hate that about myself.
Some days, I wish I could go back about 6 or 7 years and do it all over again… and somehow end up a nice, calm, sensible mom… not a crazy, Screaming Mom.
