Wow, that last post came out all pious and know it all’y didn’t it.
Okay, so I just completely lost my temper.
Kids were fighting at dinner table (it’s 7:02pm) and knocked over a glass of milk. I screamed “STOP FIGHTING!” They freaked, made it worse and I threw a butter knife, probably harder than necessary, ok, for sure harder than necessary, and broke the glass bowl holding the remainder of the dark chocolate cocoa.
Spilled milk, spilled cocoa, tears and frustration.
Let’s all give ourselves a break. We’re being the best parents we can be.
