And Back to Square One

I knew I spoke too soon. I knew that I shouldn't let one decent day get my confidence up or my guard down. A four day weekend can make you forget what a week of hell feels like and it can make you soft.

It took me 20 minutes to get my kids down to lunch. It took 20 minutes to take my kids down during dismissal. I wasted so much time and energy today. I yelled at the top of my lungs and accidentally said (not so subtly) under my breath "I'm so goddamn sick of this". Then I got ripped a new one by a parent when I told her her daughter wasn't behaving well in class.

In short, today was not a good day. But, tomorrow is Friday. I gotta regroup and go in tomorrow like today didn't happen. I just wish I could tell why some days go so well and some days crash and burn. I've upped the positive reinforcements and I'm trying to be consistent with my consequences. Beyond that I'm pretty much stumped.
