A Calm Approach

This morning I found myself tired, grumpy and not at one with my role as mother/father/chef/playmate/ police officer/teacher/bum wiper etc. A later night than I would ever recommend any mother have (Midnight: buzzing on coffee and nicotine, no less) and a few hours of disturbed sleep had left me irritable and impatient with my Angel. I snapped, I shouted and, I'm ashamed to say, I swore - bad, bad behaviour and not the sort of conduct that I want my daughter to witness and, worse, emulate.

Way back when I was pregnant, I bought (and started reading) Sarah Napthali's "Buddhism for Mothers: a Calm Approach to Caring for yourself and your children."

I think it's time to finish it!

Night night xx
