I've decided I do not like school holidays.
I do not like them, not one little bit.
Well, maybe a little bit. Not having to get everyone ready to madly rush out the door at 8:30am is nice.
But I am nearly driven to total insanity.
I am worn out.
I feel old, I feel haggard, I feel beaten.
I also feel like the biggest sook on Earth because I only have two children, just two!
And I am struggling.
They scream, they fight, they bicker.
My boy torments his sister to the point of screaming (I'm talking screaming that makes your brain want to curl up and die) at least ten times every day.
My husband keeps asking me if everyone else's kids do this.
How should I know??
I'm assuming they do, or am I hoping they do?
I want to think my family is normal.
But every day normal seems to be slipping farther and farther away.
My boy can be very normal, I think.
He seems so to me, most of the time.
But there are occasions where he is more sensitive than normal,
more persistent than normal,
more agressive than normal,
more dominant than normal,
more demanding than normal,
more single-minded than normal,
more work than normal.
Or is he?
We still haven't been down the 'testing' path.
So I really don't know.
How will knowing help anyway?
I'm too tired to know.
