easy child/difficult child drove me over the edge tonight. It's been building up with little things like him forgetting to do chores or homework and telling little lies here and there. I have to say I've been doing a reallllly good job of being patient and calm with him - NOT an easy task by any means. Seriously though - lately I've been better at controlling my anger than ever. Well - not tonight. He pushed me right over the edge. I screamed. Loud. He cried. A lot! It was not a "happy family" scene here at all. I spoke to him after I calmed down and asked if he knew why he was in trouble. He said he did and told me why. All is well now but I'm a little disappointed in myself for not holding it better together especially since I've been doing so well with that lately. I'm trying not to beat myself up because its unrealistic to think I'll 'never' yell again but I'm not a fan of tonight at all! Hopefully tomorrow will be better and we can move past this.
