So Frustrated.....And I'm Going to Leave....

The last few days have been VERY frustrating for me. While trying to see some paintings on Monday night, Cameron had an utter and complete melt-down. I had to literally DRAG the boy out of the building while he was screaming and carrying on. It was SO embarrassing.
Then yesterday I kept yelling and yelling until I was ready to lose my voice. Cameron would not do a THING I said. I was beginning to lose my mind.
At first, I thought it was because I'm SO excited to get away this weekend. (I'm going on a Girls Weekend Out...I've been looking forward to this trip for a VERY long time, and I figured that I was just super excited to be gone....) And while I AM excited to see my friends, and play without being bothered by little kids, it wasn't the reason I was going nuts.
Last night, right before I went to bed, I checked Cameron's pill container....he has NOT taken his pills for the last 2 days. I was SO SO SO mad. I was ready to pull the boy out of bed over it (but I didn't...) Whenever I had asked him if he had taken his pills, he lied and said he had. Then he continued to act out and not listen.
Today I remedied the situation by WATCHING him take the pills.
Here's hoping the next day is happy, and he's behaving well for daddy while I'm gone.

I'm So sorry. I know how you feel. I too have had to drag kids out of a store screaming and yelling and hitting me. So embarassing.

Just think school starts in a couple of weeks! :) Not that that solves everthing but it's nice for everyone to have a break from each other.
