Carrie posted my thoughts pretty completely yesterday. My kids are making me crazy so allow me a little rant if you will.
First of all, I absolutely can-not stand for someone to walk in the door with a crappy attitude (yes, I said crappy. CRAPPY.) Yesterday, after my kids got home from VBS...and they are indeed at another one because Ty is helping since he couldn't last week.
Anyway, after they walked in the door they started to go at it. They just began screaming and yelling about a schedule or some other rot, and then they all turned on Andrew because they thought he was messing in their stuff, which went to MORE screaming and yelling...and on and on it went. Until I had to do the deep, scary (yeah right) Mom yell to make them all retreat to their proverbial corners for a longwinded lecture about why we LOVE EACH OTHER, and how rude it is to walk into a place (that was completely peaceful a nano-second before) going beserk.
Did it work? No. So by the end of the day I was twitching and trying to cover up my Tourettes.
I honestly think that it has to do with the insane pace we have kept over the last few weeks. We have had camp, 2 VBS's and lots of hanging out with our friends to name a few. We haven't had a ton of down time and I think that is making things a little whack? Who knows, though. What do you notice the trigger is when your kids start losing their minds? And better yet, what do you do about it?
