Today started off wrong. The kid was up at 6:28. He turned his DVD player on and proceeded to cheer Benji the Dog through a dog chase. It wasn’t a terrible morning until it was time to get his shoes , coat, and snow gear on. A simple task that, on a good day, can be accomplished in 1 minute turned into 20 minutes of fit throwing, screaming, yelling, and a smack across the mouth. Finally, 5 minutes late for our deadline, we are both at the front door in tears. How will this day be salvageable at this point?! Sigh…I am not sure it will. Can we go back to bed and start again?
