    1 yo and 3 yo, and get ready to go see a client. All she had to do was one worksheet well within her ability. She would not stop interrupting me for a second. She does this all the time. She cannot stand for me to be tuned into anything else for even a minute. I ended up yelling at her and calling her selfish and bratty and said she only cares about herself.
