{via around the bend}

i saved this image some time ago and thank goodness, because yesterday i definitely needed to hear this from somewhere. work was great, my classes are well-behaved, hard-working, and all-around good kids. my own kid, however, was a jumble of moods, happy, then mad, then sad. i was at a loss as to what to do, for none of the usual tricks worked, and ended up putting myself in a time-out. i found myself yelling a lot, and i can’t stand  being that kind of a parent. my heart goes out to single parents. i don’t know how they do this day in, day out, but with a being gone A LOT due to football coaching, i have even more respect for the job these parents do (and this is coming from someone who grew up with a single parent). so…today is a new day. and we will start over and do our best.
