This summer is going better than last. I am trying to keep doing things with the kids and I've been way more patient and kind. OBVIOUSLY I still yell at the little bastards. BUT I am aware that on days that they are bored and/or grumpy it's just better to pile them in the car and go DO something rather than spend the day trying to work around them.
Bay and Gus fight a LOT now. There are a lot of harsh words, hurt feelings, shoves and pinches. It's not pleasant.
