I USED to be a patient person. And then I had kids.

Okay, okay, I’m ‘fessing up. While I try, HARD, I’m not the world’s most patient person. I know some folks less patient that me, but I strive to emulate those wonderfully patient mothers I see out there who seem unflappable. But, certainly they must yell at their kids occasionally, too, right?? My kids know just how to push my buttons, but I think that’s just what kids do.

I’m also not very patient with other drivers… Living in New England, where the WORST drivers are, I’ve just reached my end with them, too. :) I’ve had to start calling them “dingbats” now, though, as I don’t want my 3 year old to call her teacher a “raging jacka**” the next time she gets frustrated.
