Well, I'm back. It's been a few days, and after having felt under the weather for more than a week, I have good news to report:
1st, my family has been helping out; the kiddo (grudgingly, but I'll take it) has helped put things away, and hubby has been doing a lot with the kiddo, thus giving me a break.
2nd, I managed to attend a great parenting group meeting where we discussed the importance of family meetings, especially in regard to assigning chores and giving an allowance. This gives me lots of ideas to keep the kiddo in line.
3rd, I have not had to yell at anyone for random acts of inconsiderate, dangerous, or annoying behavior. W00t!
