Someone send me some duct tape fast!!! I desperately need some to put over my mouth so I don’t do anymore mental damage to my kids. I could just kick myself. We were all cooking in the kitchen and Aly was helping me with my black bean stuff and C.C. was trying to make a Wacky cake and Emi was being 2 and making a big mess.
Aly asked me about a measurement. It was 3/4tsp. I told her she would need to use the 1/4tsp 3x to get the amount she needed. So she holds up a measuring spoon which I quickly glance at and nod. She is about to put the second scoop in when I see that she has the teaspoon measuring spoon. So in my being overwhelmed with so much going on I said “If you can’t do the math and figure out the measurements then just get out of the kitchen.” <—-should be frowning.
Why did I say that?? She already has such an aversion to math because it doesn’t come easy and I go and open my big mouth and make the problem worse.
Today I do not get the coolest mommy award. I should get the “Doesn’t know how to keep her mouth shut award.” I did apologize but it will still effect her. Ugh….
