Why is it when you want your kids to be good they turn into crazy screaming monsters. Which in turn seems to turn me into a crazy screaming monster as well. I mean really what is it about needing them to be good or act their age that makes them revert to the crying fits of a two year old. I was pondering this in the quiet that resulted from sending the kids to their rooms after a brawl over a book. Yes, it was a full on brawl with screaming and pulling, rolling around where I was not sure who was who. I just grabbed and pulled whoever that arm belonged to off the pile. So in this quiet after the great storm of screaming I wondered why it is they do that. Do they have a sixth sense that says mom needs me to be good but I feel a bit naughty instead? Any ideas on how to cure this crazy behavior. I mean really I am just trying to survive this "stage". Don't tell me this is not a stage I am not sure I could handle thinking about the next million years hearing the screaming yelling children I have produced. I do love them but sometimes that make we want to run naked screaming down the street!!!
