Ever had those days, no, weeks, where all you feel you do, is clean up spills, clean up period. Your children are fighting constantly with each other. All I seem to do is take turns putting one kid or another in time out. 2 out of the 3 have become the pickiest of eaters and have decided that they do not need to eat food, however come bed time, or even at 2am, they come crying that they are STARVING, and that their tummies are hurting becuase they are STARVING! I'm tired of never sleeping through the night, I have tried everything, belive me, I don't get up numerous time a night for the fun of it. I'm tired that they have decided that they don't want to share anything with each other or anyone else, and i feel like I'm 'THAT' parent, who's kids are a nightmare, and people pretend not to notice. I guess I am just feeling so overwhelmed today by it all. 3 kids in 4 years, I wouldn't trade them for the world, but some days i am just so burned out. I wonder if others really feel like this too?? I hear so many people say, 'oh you need to take a break'.. well thats all well and good, but if you have no family living near by, then it's hard to do that. Don't get me wrong, I go out a fair bit, i have GNO, and book club, plus enrichment, that i love, and feel blessed to be able to go, but i still have them all day, put them to bed then go out. I would love to go on a holiday with Dayna, but when you have 3 young kids, 2 that don't sleep through the night, it's hard to plan it, and if i did, i would just worry about them the whole time, or should i say whoever has them!!
so, tomorrow is a new day, i should be grateful that i have them. I do love them with every peice of me, but it's jsut been a hard week i guess!.
