Dear Aden,

You are sweet, but you are not too sweet ignore that you need a swift swat on the bum.

Have you not heard Owen crying all day long? Did you not realize that I had been fighting Owen to go to sleep since 5 pm? Maybe you forgot that your bedroom wall is immediately beside Owen’s crib. Maybe you forgot that I had put him down to sleep an hour ago when you thought it would be a great idea to pound on that wall with your fists and feet instead of sleep.

I don’t know what was going through your mind, but my plans for a bath tonight before bed have just been shot completely.

I love you always, but I just don’t feel it right now.

It would be wise to greet me with an “I love you” in the morning, lest I remain bitter at you all day long.
