Downhearted sometimes, but still just fine ;D

After the concern expressed after THIS post I felt it necessary to explain the reason for the downheartedness. I am fine, all is well. Sometimes I go through moments of downheartedness, but I quickly bounce back to a state of blissful happiness, so no worries.
That particular moment I happened to be surrounded by a completely torn apart messy house. I don't deal with disaster well, especially when it comes in the form of dirty dishes, unswept or un-vacumed floors, and toys everywhere.
The fact that my boys were making yet another mess, was just too much to handle, thus my downheartedness. Fortunately I was able to resist the urge to scream at my boys, and then break down in tears. I saw just how much fun they were having and knew it wasn't worth ruining. I remember being a kid, moments that I remember fondly are the ones uninhibited by angry adults. This is what I try really hard to remember when my boys are doing something that yes is destructive, but also harmless. As long as they are happy and laughing about it.
So please, no worries, all is well.

I have moments when my kids are just being kids, but it feels overwhelming to me. Like WHAT NOW?

Thanks for linking up!

Rose, you are so right. So many times I find myself reprimanding the kids for something; getting dirty, making messes, etc. It's important to recognize the Harmless acts, and let them have fun. :)

There are SO many times that I feel like this...I have to stop and ask myself if it deserves to be stopped or should I just "lighten up"'s so hard sometimes to sit back and enjoy things--but I think I'm starting to get a little by day :)

It's okay to be down sometimes.
