We were supposed to go to the beach today, and then have a cookout. I haven't seen my best friend in weeks. We had plans.
Freyja refused to take a nap. Flat out refused. Threw herself around. Acted up. Jumped on the bed. I told her "If you don't take a nap, we don't go to the beach."
She still acted up.
So here we sit. Maybe most parents would have backed down on that, gone to the beach anyway.
I can't. She's a monster lately. Nothing we do or say has any bearing on her behaviour. I had to stick to my guns, even though I'm missing out on my fun, too.
It sucks to be a mom today.
