Black, white and shades of grey

Grumpy, 
miserable, 
unsatisfied, 
negative, 
emotional
argumentative.

Some days there are little black clouds hanging over the heads of my children.
If I said something was black, they would argue it was white. 
Their favourite meal is now disgusting.
None of their usual DVDs, games, or toys will do.
If I was to make a drink, there would be tears and tantrums because there is no straw.
On days like this my jaw aches from the constant clenching.
All you can do is take cover and wait for the wind to blow the clouds away.

How do you cope with days like this?
Please tell me I am not alone.
