Do you ever feel like you just need a break from the kids? Like there are days they sit on your last nerve and you need a time out yourself?

  • Not yet, But they are still little. Thats the easy part I'm told. My MIL keeps saying, just wait.. lol. I did baby sit a 5 year old a few weeks back for six days a week, she stayed three nights of the six, and I went INSANE! But lol not from my own babies from her! She had no discipline outside of my home, so long story short, it went badly. lol

  • When I feel that way I pick up everything and we go do something to distract ourselves and usually everyone ends up happy. A short walk usually works magic around here :)
