I have been tagged. If you missed a couple of days over the holiday weekend please feel free to go to the last post and list something positive your child did over the last week. We all need to hear it!

Meme - tag
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer

What were you doing five years ago?

I was staying home at that time. I have gone back and forth over the years between staying home and working as a para professional (teacher's aide) The demands at home with 5 kids were great so I had chosen to stay home again. Big thanks to my hubby for making that possible. My children would have been 17, 14, 11, 11, and 8 at the time. My 11 yo with RAD would have been sullen, angry and introverted. Too much medication. My 8 yo would have been aggressive, violent and tearing down his room one piece of wood at a time. Scary times.
