Oh my goodness...what a day you are having!

Very happy (and relieved) your DS is home with you. I don't understand where all the crazies are coming from the last few years. It's like the keys were thrown away at the nuthouse and everyone is running free.

I think most of us know how our children can push every button until we're ready to pull out our hair - or theirs! But I pray things will calm down and the ride will be better than expected. Good advise...take a deep breath (actually, take several deep cleansing breaths!)...and walk away for a while, if possible.

We're all sending loads of dust in hopes some magic will happen asap!

The problem is the deep breaths turn into hyperventilating

Never a dull moment for sure!!!!

DS' professor emailed the class and told them to try to get near campus so that if the all clear comes they can still take their final. So DS went to Barnes and Nobles and waited and sure enough at exam time thee was an all clear and they are starting the final half hour late. Glad he Went to that side of town. As for DD I'm just trying keep my distance

Very true. I'm having that problem with my 15 yr old right now. I've asked him for weeks if he had homework, and he keeps telling me no. I just got off the phone with his English teacher and he hasn't been doing work for an easy project due tomorrow. Getting him to work on it is like pulling individual hairs out of my DH's beard with a tweezer instead of shaving it with a razor.

Just had to come give my friend Melissa a BIG I forget the ages of your kiddos -- but I am guessing since DS was doing a final, they may be in those scary teen yrs?? Kids can definitely push those buttons very easily!! I know my 2 boys have sure tested me at times, and I just didn't want to be anywhere near them for fear of what I'd say or do! We understand! I hope DD gets her act together and starts acting in a much nicer manner for you ASAP! So glad to hear DS was safe! that's so scary..... I am glad it didn't amount to anything more serious!

Aww sweetie! It sounds like you have your hands full with that little one. I can somewhat relate. My DD6 is definitely my tough one. It's hard though because DD8 is literally the model child.

My DD6 likes to push buttons and is really good at it, with all of us in the house. It's like she just gets in the mood to be in a mood and she will not stop until she is good and ready.

I was actually irritated upon picking her up at school today because she got mad that I picked her up before she could finish a game she was playing, so that led to her laying on the floor, refusing to put on her coat (it's 32°) and refusing to sit correctly in her car seat. she then proceeded to scream loudly in the backseat on the way to pick up her sister....about halfway there, she stuck her thumb in her mouth...calmed down and was done, started having normal conversation. It's seriously like she gets possessed periodically.

It's hard being a mom

This is Joey's first year in high school, and the first time we've had to deal with this from him.

Oh Melissa: I can totally relate, I had such a day with my DD6 yesterday. I ended up crying myself a few times after they were all at school. It is so hard being a parent, and a mom to boot. We seem to take a lot of the blows from the kiddos. Hang in there, tomorrow will be better for you all. And your Disney trip will be magical. It will.

Candace: I am right there with you too. It must be the age. Or something....
