    I have been right there with you, sometimes the look on my sons(2 boys) faces makes me think I must look like Linda Blair in "The Exorcist". My head spins around and spit starts coming out of my mouth. I feel the same way you do, when I drop them off. I feel so da** guilty....I beat myself up..Usually I can't stop thinking of those faces all day and worrying that I've ruined their day and they probably won't be able to concentrate etc etc...only to find out when I pick them up, they are happy as can be and totally forgot the whole incident(probably the minute they ran into their pals). So cheer up and give him and his brothers an extra big hug when you pick them up. Their love is unconditional too...

    I have those days all the time, they are more the norm than a calm, sane morning. My older two are teens, and have learned to get themselves ready, but I am constantly having to referee between them in the morning because one or the other is hogging the bathrooom, or hogging the milk, or they can't find their lunch money. They both take the bus so at least I don't have to hear the fight about who gets to sit in front. (Yes, they still fight over that )

    And my two year old is in the phase of negativity, as I learned in the growth and development portion of my nursing program. The answer to everything is NO!, he takes clothes off faster than I can put them back on, and he's gotten to be a pretty fast runner when he wants to get away from me. We often circle the house several times before I can catch him to get his coat on so we can leave. And I've got news for the authors of the growth and development text - Giving choices to toddlers to help ease their negativity DOES NOT WORK!!! What a bunch of baloney.

    I went to work on my RN when my kids where 5 and 7. It was really tough. I can't imagine what it would have been like with 3 kids. Good luck and God bless.

    Thank you all for your brought me happiness throughout the day.

    My boys are all home now, and as many of you said they have totally forgotten the incident.

    Thanks again!

    The joys of parenthood, LOL. After working my night shift I got home to find my daughter had slept through her 3 alarm clocks and missed the bus AGAIN !!! oh well, off to school we go, who care if I am so tired I could just drop dead behind the wheel. Your morning sounds more normal than abnormal when you have kids.

    Here, too, Mama is NOT the most exemplary mama in the world. Mama is quite b*tchy in the morning, and BOTH of the younger kids are pokey puppies.........

    BUT..........the day will come soon that all of us are out of school and back to normal lives......

    Hang in there.

    You should have just pushed him into the closet and let him stay there instead of school.
    I have 3 kids and the middle one is the one that causes me grief too.
    Argues all the time with me. I have taken to putting him on "hard labor". I have this pile of old lumber that I have kids move from one part of the property to the other when they get in trouble. Also firewood stacking, trash picking up. car washing etc...
    I have been in your shoes.

    I feel your pain...My 2 kids are 7 and 3...(girl, boy) My daughter is the only drama queen in the morning and it takes at least 10 minutes to put on one son wants to watch t.v. and I am running around like a chicken without a head!!! To make matters worst my husband too takes 10 min to put on one sock(but his excuse is he's watching ESPN) A women's work is really never ever done!!!

    Wow...I have finally found my home with y'all. I finally fit in!!!
    As some of you know, my dh is gone and due to come home soon from a 6 month deployment. I am all nerves in trying to prepare for this. (We don't live near his base and he will only be home with us a few days and darnit I want things PERFECT!) Anyway....I totally lost it last night. I went to the store with the boys (they're 11 and 7) and we bought some cream of chicken soup for the hashbrown casserole I was making for the church Christmas dinner last night...well....we get home and NO SOUP! {We must have left it on the counter, but I paid for was on the receipt!} I CRIED. Sat in the dang kitchen floor and CRIED. I am such a freak. I feel so wack and my poor kids just looking at this crazy woman crying over soup! I feel so much better now after reading your posts. I have bad days just like everybody else!:kiss

    Love y'all,

    That dh of yours is going to just want to see you, the heck with the casserole. I have cried over sillier things.(((Angie)))
    My twins were only 11 months older than my baby. How crazy is that there was the time that they ( 10-11ish) kept bouncing the ball in the living room, this was after the youngest had bounced one that hit the light fixture breaking the glass which landed in his arm and he had to have stitches. Okay back to the day mommy went mad, they had been told I don't know how many times to stop bouncing that ball before. I calmly walked in with the knife I had been cutting onions up with in the kitchen grabbed their ball and cut it in the middle, handed it back to them and said "guess you won't bounce tha ball anymore." Then walked back in the kitchen and started on my onion again.:angryfire I am nonviolent except when it comes to balls deb
