Discoveries

1. I cannot MAKE Bennett stop being overwhelmed and do his homework. For all of three subjects.

2. I cannot MAKE Laura like meat.

3. I cannot MAKE Catie be kind to her siblings.

4. I cannot MAKE Ethan stop…well, stop being himself.

All of these things frustrated  me all at the same time, mixed with PMS today.

I removed myself at dinner time, driving the van halfway around the neighborhood and just sat there, reading a magazine. I can’t tell you how short my fuse was, how angry I got, or how much I needed to get away from my own children. And this is after not spending the day with them. It’s just not a good day to be my child. Or, honestly, to be me.
