I'm just having a very rough time of it and need to vent. All the kids are requiring me to be a task driver to get them to do anything. They are running circles around me and I am so mad. Right now they are all in separate rooms while I'm in here with Cherub calming down. difficult child 1 normally does a lot of work around here. I'm picking up the difference with him being gone, but the other kids need to do their work without me directing them. Everything I ask them to do they can and have done independently before. difficult child 2 did great until the very last little bit of the morning routine. He only had a little bit left to do and he stopped! AGHHHHH! I think Buster, Cherub, Elsie and I are going to read stories.
