  • put them in their rooms, go downstairs or outside and turn up the tv so you cant hear them. no you won't be a bad mommy you will be a mommy trying to keep your sanity so you can take care of them tomorrow. or a mommy trying to keep yourself from killing them. go outside call a girl friend that will make you laugh your ass off. if they really don't pass out after a bit (maybe 30 mins for the 2 yr old, and 10 for the 5 mo old) stick your head in and make sure they are ok. if you still cant handle it at that point thats fine too give yourself some more time. i still put my 3 yr old in her room, go outside call a girlfriend with a cigg and a cup of coffee and if by the time my coffee is gone shes still going normally i've got my nerves down enough to handle it

  • no problem, really just put them down and let them scream. im always afraid with my daughter that when my fuse starts getting short i'll shake her or scream at her and lose my temper. so i just think its safer to put her in her room and leave. do you have a baby gate? put it outside his door so he cant leave his room, that way you arent worried about that
