Tough day - when to apologize for not being the best mom?
I had one of those days where I snapped at my kids, had very little patience and just generally was not the best mom. I felt like apologizing to them but then thought it might make things worse because they may be too young to understand. When do you think children are old enough to understand that sometimes the way that their parents behave has nothing to do with them and everything to do with what else is going on (e.g. stressful day at work, argument with husband, etc etc)?
