She is constantly demanding to go somewhere or have someone come over! Frankly I'm tired of it! I am at the point of lost patience! Ever since summer started, she has been relentless. Now, hubby and I are arguing about money, and a lot of the money I've spent lately, has been taking the kids somewhere -jumphouse places ($20) happy meals after the park ($11) or toys ($10). Movies ($12) At least 2 times a week I give in, so this is adding up to a lot of expense! But I NEED peace and quiet! We don't have a lot of friends, and my family doesn't help.
We put in a pool - but it's not enough. I take her to friend's houses, but sometimes they are busy and we can't go over everyday! Nothing is ever enough.
What do I do to keep my sanity without having to constantly entertain her? (I have other kids that need me too). I am at my wits end with her and scowl at her a lot. I feel so bad for hating this summer break, but I am tired!
