  • lol you need to say it, i mean don't scream it, but you need to say it. "honey i need you to sit down right now, it's quiet time" i'm going to assume even if for some reason you don't that you have her on some sort of schedule, in that schedule you should add in "quiet time" It's not like she has to take a nap or anything, but have her sit or lay on the couch and watch a movie or a show or read some stories. Every mother needs some time, i totally get that, just try that and see how it works. You may have to be persistent for a week or so just so she knows you're serious and not backing down about it, but then it should work out fine.

  • Last night my 18 month-old and 33 month-old daughters were on the couch climbing on me, wanting tickles, raspberries, you know, sweet stuff... Right before that we had been at the dining room table for snacks, but it was constant water refills, I-hafta-go-potty, crackers-on-the-floor, I want this cup, not that one... So, sitting on the couch, when my 18 month old gave me a big, wet kiss on the mouth and then my almost-3 year old accidentally snapped my bra strap, I snapped myself: "Alright, everyone OFF! I need my body back. No one touch me or ask me for ANYTHING... PLEASE!!!" They just looked at me like I was crazy. My big girl said, after a moment of silence, "Mommy, why did you SAY that?" It sounds funny today. At the time I was ready to cry.

  • I think it's healthy for our babies to see us go through a range of emotions and for us to demonstrate how we deal with them. If she sees that you need quiet time, she'll know it's ok for HER to need quiet time. Very healthy, in my opinion. Do I always succeed with this philosophy? Heck no! I fail just like everybody else does, but my boy is so precious. Just the other day, I apologized for yelling at him and told him I was feeling bad. He put his lovey in my arms and said "Here you go, Mommy. Big Bear will make you feel better" and then gave me a kiss on the cheek. My heart completely melted and all was right with the world once again.
    You are not alone, you are normal! ;-)
