Spaghetti bolognaise all over cream carpet :(
I lost it

It was after all my fault. I should know better. I am the parent. But it was time to watch Manu.

It wasn't my son that I was upset with. It was myself. It was completely and utterly NO fault of his, which I did explain to him when I calmed down (for the record, I never yelled or screamed at him, I just kind of froze and turned a lovely shade of purple) I was totally wild at myself for allowing my wants and needs to come above all else. I was selfish and self obsessed.

But did I learn my lesson ?
Can you blame me ?
It was after all Manu :)
