This is our life. Taylor is 8, Quinten is 5 and Spencer is 4. We are so blessed to have 3 great kids. I thank God for them everyday.

There's a hole in the wall dear Liza, dear Liza....
We've had quite the trying week with the Q man. Let's just say the first part was good but then Wednesday hit and all hell(sorry) broke loose. We found out that he hasn't been on his best behavior at school Mon, Tues and Wed. Not sure why his teacher waited till Wed to tell us but whatever. Let's just say after numerous time outs, bedroom bound time away (him not me), buckets of tears, various items being thrown at the bedroom door, hot sauce and a hole in the wall I was very glad to drop the boys off at my parents house on my way to work. I will say something good did come from it. I've learned not to react to his behavior. I let hearing a 5 year old tell me how terrible a mom I was beat me down. So of course I reacted and yelled which in turn made it worse.
The rest of the week got better and we're thinking positively that next week will be even better and we'll get positive reports from his teacher.
I will say I felt like I had failed as a parent. Please tell me I'm not alone. Any stories out there?
