Unhappy I can't believe I did that

I have both boys by myself for the first time today. Well, I took them to the park, and Marek threw sand at me. I had Lukas in the Bjorn, so he had sand all over him, in his eyes (luckily he was asleep), hair, down his shirt, down my shirt, etc. I was really mad and put Marek back in the stroller, finished my walk and went home.

Then it was time to pump. I got out the battery pack so I could sit at the kitchen table and give Marek a snack while he watched Elmo. I put Lukas in the bouncy on the table, and he was fine for about 10 minutes, then started to scream. So I'm twisted around, back killing me, pumping and feeding a baby at the same time, and Marek kept unlatching his high chair tray and trying to throw it. He finally succeeded (BANG! damn thing hits the floor and food goes everywhere). I had to put the baby down, the tubes are coming out of the receptacles, etc., while I pick that d*** thing up. Then Marek grabs a kitchen chair and keeps pulling it. I keep saying no, then finally in frustration, I slapped his foot.

Now I'm bawling my eyes out because I hit my baby, and I swore I'd never do that ever ever ever. I swear, I hate this pumping. I'm going to tell dh that when I'm home alone with the kids, I'm only going to pump three times a day - morning when he's home, Marek's naptime, and night when dh is home.

It'll get better. I know it can be so frustrating when your toddler has a mind of their own and your trying to do a million things at once.
