Can't say I haven't unfortunately, and I'm certainly not proud for doing so. Life has certainly been crazy this year. As to why....well, I think it has to do with having little to no social support network and having a son who was diagnosed ADHD, and my daughter who just turned a year who has developemental delays and still isn't crawling, walking, or babbling in consonants and still has to eat pureed food because she chokes and pukes on anything that has more texture. I'd say the real reason is stress. My husband works 12 hour days, every Thur, Fri, Saturday, and Weds every other week so it's long days with not much help. Even though the weekends are long 3 and 4 days, every weekend is chalked up with countless doctors appts so we never get to relax. If I had more of a chance to spend time de-stressing I'm sure I would snap at my 5 yr old alot less!
