Help me feel better

Need some MN support. My normally relatively pleasant 5 yo has had a personality transplant over the last few days and become an utter monster. Won't do anything I say, being unpleasant to other children in parks (which makes me feel so embarrassed) and keeps having tantrums (something he's not done for years). Feel at my wits end! Please tell me someone else is feeling like this and that maybe it's just that he needs to go back to school. Tonight my only friend was wine....

I normally feel like that by the end of the holiday. Both DC end up quite fighty and just seem like they need a break from each other and me.

I’m a teacher... and still long for back to school!

I'm also a teacher - I feel like I live up to the saying 'the shoemakers children are always poorly shod!'
