my first 3 kids were close and always played together and I never had a problem being able to get something done for myself like read or watch a show without a problem.
Now they are much older and now I have a 6yr old son. I have never been able to do anything without him bothering me. He is always wanting my attention mainly because he has nobody else to occupy him so he constantly turns to me.
Always talking/bugging me... I tried to read a 1 page story in a magazine and he has to be talking to me! It is driving me nuts that I get no time to do something I enjoy.
How do you get time to yourself? How do you get kids to not be a pain....

That's my 4yo. My older 3 kids are each a year apart and are all now in school or are out hanging out with their friends. That leaves the 4yo at home with me. She drives me nuts wanting my constant attention because she is bored. I have to stand my ground and tell her to go play with her toys. She doesn't need me to entertain her every second we are together. And she can play alone just fine when I make her.
But things are much calmer when the older 3 kids are home and she can play with them. Like right now all 4 are playing the xbox. They even have the baby in the other room with them (he's 3 months). Only problem is they are being so loud I can barely hear my TV and I'm sitting right next to it.
