OK, enough babbling and making excuses...anyway, what happened was that I lost my temper. I thought that I would slap Pumpkin Princess if I stayed around any longer, so I ran screaming out of my house.
After a couple of minutes, I calmed down and felt really really guilty. I came back to a still crying Pumpkin Princess and a Pumpkin Daddy who had a "why are you so angry" look.
So for Mother's Day, I had three Pumpkin-free hours to myself, courtesy of the Pumpkin Daddy. I went grocery shopping, prepared dinner, did a bit of cleaning, and took and hour-long nap. It's not expensive jewelry. Heck, it was better than jewelry.
There are some days I just know I am not cut out for this mommy stuff, and last Saturday was one of them.
