I can’t lie and say that this has been the best day. My little family seemed dto be full of whinges today. I perservered, then thought that perhaps I should calm down and so I loaded them in the car. It went against all my parenting instincts to reward them for nit picking at each other but….we went out for lunch. It was lovely, the children were calm, polite, and less stressed. Some times I forget that school isn’t just about academics, but it’s about life and family peace. We are refreshed, ready to go again tommorow.
