  • when my first 3 children were small i lived 10 hours away from my whole family, sure my in laws were right down the road,but i was mostly on my own.i would have to wait for them to all get to sleep at nite to get any time for myself. they had me practically pulling my hair out every day. but some how i always made to the next one with all my hair. at the end of each day i would run a hot bubble bath and sometimes a glass of my favorite alcohol, and just relax and think about all they had managed to destroy that day and wonder what new terror they would cause the next. just remember they are just kids,testing their boundries and yours. some day you will find it all very funny!
