    My CHN nurse always told me we don't have to be the best mum in the world, just a good one. Don't beat yourself up over this.

    Hopefully tomorrow is better for you.

    Sometimes you lose it. You didn't hurt him and I think you need to be proud of that.

    Big hugs.

    Omg I have had so many days where nothing works! The kids are feral and I just want to cry!

    I have been where you are recently. Anyone who doesn't have those days every now and then must be a super hero!

    Yes I have had a couple of those awful shameful moments too
    You know how we all know you are a great mum? Cos you recognised that it wasn't your finest moment.. you feel bad and clearly shocked yourself and your child.. so its not a regular occurrence.
    I always apologise to my son if I have an ogre moment..
    I remember when he was about 3 he was being particularly ratty and I was pregnant and I totally lost it at him. It was completely inappropriate and really upset him.. I took a breather and then sat down with him, gave him cuddles and explained that sometimes mummies get upset and have tantrums and seem very cross.. that its never okay to scream at someone or make them sad just because you are having a bad day.. even grown ups do the wrong thing etc.. said I was sorry and wasn't cross anymore.. he seemed to really understand and respond well. Good luck and go easy on yourself.
