And then, there's the other stuff. It stinks to clean dried poo off the backside of a 3 year old who has been "potty trained" for almost a year. It sucks to find out that yet another homework assignment has gone undone, resulting in a detention. It is miserable to sit in an ER while your child screams in pain during X-rays.
It's depressing to find out that texts are being sent that shouldn't be. It saddens me to take phone privileges away from an otherwise productive individual. Not a banner night. Discipline is not my favorite thing.
