Yesterday was a really frustrating day. It felt like the majority of the day was spent arguing with the older kids and trying to get shorter ones to behave like dignified youngsters and not fork-throwing savages. Nothing I said stopped the arguing and nothing I did stopped the silverware throwing. I went to bed feeling very defeated.
Luckily, the universe seems to have a habit of balancing things out and today was quite nice. The kids got through their classes with relatively no drama. The sun was out and the weather was warm. They played outside for most of the afternoon. Everyone was cheerful.
But today… It’s okay. Is it because we have had one more day to recover from daylight savings? Is it because the day was sunny and spring is on the way? Is it because last night in bed I cried and begged God to help me because I don’t know what I’m doing?
My guess is it was probably all three.
