Another Day, Another Failure

I've been wrestling for a while now with my inability to keep my temper in the morning while I drive my son to school.  We pulled our son from public school last year, after a traumatic end to the year which resulted in our son being expelled.  We had concerns previously about having our son in public school and the influences he was exposed to there.  Certainly it doesn't just apply to our son, but those who are familiar with our situation know why we chose to remove just our son from the public school system.  This year he has been attending a private Catholic school in the area.  In order to ensure that our youngest has someone there to see her safely on the bus in the morning, I have been the one primarily responsible for taking our son to school each morning.

I'm not going to lie.  It has been a strain on our relationship.  It is only recently that I have begun trying to evaluate what is causing the tension, and I feel like I can finally breathe a sigh of relief, after yet another morning that sent my son to school mad and left me in tears.
