I deserved it.
In full mommy-melt-down-mode I was yelling at everybody. Nobody could do anything right in my eyes. Fault finding was my mission.
I can't remember what was really wrong. Sometimes I don't even know. Dragon will recognize it sometimes or one of the older kids will point out what is wrong but I can't see it. I was on a full out rampage. I declared it to be family night and my family was NOT having fun.
Dragon sat down to just relax. He worked all day and didn't have a good day at all. He wanted to sit back and enjoy the quiet presence of his family. In his way he took care of the problem.
He looked over at me with that look in his eyes. I can't describe it. It is that look that tells to straiten up right now.
Would he have spanked me if I kept it up? Probably and it wouldn't have been fun.
Boy was that a close one.
