I am a mom of three (6,3, and a newborn) and I am really annoyed by my two oldest. They annoy me to the point where I don't want to be bothered with them. I love them, and would never want anything to happen to them, but I don't like them much. I find myself yelling at them a lot. When it comes to spending time with them, I don't do it. When I wake up in the morning I am okay until one of them comes in whinning about being hungry or wanting something. My DH has even started to notice and told me that I don't treat them right. I've never physically hurt them or anything, but, I know what I am doing is hurting them emotionally. I've been through it myself as a kid. I don't know how to stop. It's usually just the kids and I (due to my hubby working), and it makes me crazy. I don't like that I do this and I want to know if anyone can help with ideas.
* I'm looking for advice. Not confirmation on how I'm being a bad mom.
