We had a major emotional blow up this morning. Tears, screaming, time spent in room to calm down.
Over a shirt.
I can't tell you how demoralizing that was. Normally, I'm thrilled my kids can and will dress themselves. But my older daughter picked out a shirt that a.) was too big and b.) did not meet dress code.
The fight was on. I literally had to yank it off her. And then - being in a snit - she refused other clothes. Many options were given. All were rejected.
Why does it have to be so hard to simply get ready to go somewhere?
