Don't you just hate those days your alarm clock forgets to go off?

Well it's more like I had turned it off the morning before because I had accidentally hit snooze instead of dismiss. I didn't want it going off the entire time I was in the shower. Of all days to be late too, the boys needed to be on time because they start SAT testing today. This is the first time I can remember driving the kids to school in my PJ's because we were that late. I NEVER do that. I feel so out of place outside of the house in anything but clothes.

We made it on time though, PHEW! Didn't help I had to scream like a mad woman to keep the kids in gear.

They just kept stopping and standing there in a daze instead of getting dressed, putting shoes on, etc. Then K started with her garbage. She has not been a pleasant little person since she turned four. I really want my sweet (and good sleeping) girl back !

She's just on these kicks where she has tantrums all day long, screams at me and whines about EVERYTHING and if I change what I'm doing to what she said she wanted in the first place she changes her mind about that and complains and screams and whines about that too. She's had a lot of time outs where she has screamed at least 50 minutes at a time in her room. She won't even go to bed at night without me getting flustered and frustrated after the 500th time of her getting up. She can't put her own blanket on, she wants to play at 3 am or whatever so there are hours at night she's screaming in her room too.

This morning she wouldn't get dressed or let me put clothes on her. Once she calmed down it was easier until she realized she didn't get breakfast but her brothers did. OMG, she had a fit yesterday because she wanted to eat AFTER we got back from taking them to school instead. It's really like she just wants to do the opposite of what I need and want her to do at the moment.

I swear I'm going to have a stroke by the time she's a teen!
