This past week was the hardest week for us by far. We had a court date that stirred up all kinds of anxiety and fear. I hate that as 11 and 14 year olds they have to worry about things like where they are going to live or how their parents are behaving or if they are going to see friends again. All this fear and anxiety manifested in lots of anger, tantrums, and fighting - even in this momma! I lost it one day and yelled at my youngest - which is never good, but it was heart breaking to watch him cower and cover his ears and respond in more fear - the exact opposite of what I was trying to accomplish. We saw a lot of regression in behavior this week. But somehow, we have made it to the end of each day. There is just enough grace for all three of us to make it. We are hanging in there.
