We home-educate our children. Currently, we have two eight-year olds, a seven-year old, a five-year old and a two-year old. Things get a little crazy around here and as the mom, teacher, principal, cafeteria worker, janitor, president of the PTO, etc. I am expected to remain calm, subdued and under-control at all times. It became clear to me today that perhaps I'm not doing a very good job at exhibiting self-control. At one point, I put my hands on my cheeks and said, "Oh, I'm going to go crazy."
