Mommy needs a break...

I play and play and play with the kids until I just need a breather. As long as mommy isn't doing something for herself, the kids and dogs behave fine. I could be sitting on the couch with them watching TV - they don't even know I'm there. The SECOND I get on cafemom, the dogs tear EVERYTHING up, and the kids are whiny and needy and I have to get up every 5 seconds. I just need a break. I need 5 minutes where I'm not having to clean up poop or pee (dog or children), where I'm not listening to the whining and screaming... Ugh. I'm gonna lock myself in my room when DH gets home.

Do you need a break?

  • I am right there with you! My babies are still so young and they drive me crazy at times. I woke up this morning to the sound of running water in the tub in my bathroom. Our 25 month old is in a big boy bed so he snuck into my room, got out a pair of my leather boots and filled them up with water.


    PS- I also have 15 month old twins..... So breaks are necessary to prevent mommy from needing a padded cell. ;)

  • I'm trying to find a job. I have been out of work since Feb, and it's killing me. I love my children, but I would be more patient and they wouldn't be so irritating if I had adult interaction every once in a while.

  • I know the feeling, lol. My son will play great if i'm on the floor with him, but the second I get up, he FREAKS, lol. Heaven forbod I have to walk into the other room. Even when I'm on here, it's in spurts, and usually he's right next to me, eating a snack or playing with something in my lap.
