Doesn't help that I go through these moments, and then go to work with families who are also challenging, amongst children that are challenging and co-workers (not Mel) who quite frankly are challenging.

FULL - ON
Some days are challenging. OK let's be honest, as a whole MOST days are challenging. Some moments are more challenging and some moments are more magical. Coming home from work this after noon was less then magical. I walk in the playroom, she scowls. Go back to work she hisses. UGGGGHHH. You know, some days it takes every single drop of reserve I have to not turn and leave. Fake the smile, fake the serenity ... fake it until you make it. It's always those transitions that prove most difficult. Dropping off, picking up, starting dinner, finishing dinner, arriving, departing ... Doesn't help when these days start at 6:30.
