I have to say... Im tired of managing Sam. Its so exhausting and no one understands or supports it. (except you ladies)
no.. I cant just "go to the store" when I pick Sam up from school-
no.. I cant just "make him" sit in the kids area at the gym so I can work out.
no, If Sam has a playdate on Tuesday then I cant get him to go to the dentist on Wednesday morning. So, sorry, we can just move that playdate from Thursday to Tuesday.. its "planned out".
no, sorry Aunt G, but since Sam has the dentist on Wednesday morning, you cant come over here right after for lunch. He will be grumpy, taxed from the dentist...and then our builder is coming over at 5... and I cant have Sam freaking during that-- and while I appreciate your gesture of "letting me have some time off" telling me on Monday that you have left 12-1:30 wednesday available to help me... when really, in the end thats no help. Sorry.
Its ALL about managing Sam.. and I have to say, I dislike that Hubby and I dont have lives anymore because it is all about Sam.. and what Sam CAN do, and what Sam CANT do.. and where Sam CAN go.. and where he cant go-- and where he may melt, and where we may be able to stretch him.... and UGH...
Where is Scarletts time??? Where is time for hubby and I.. cause we are managing Sam, but we are not managing what we need as a couple.
So ME, Im management.. and I desperately need a break.
Sorry... vent over.
How do you "manage" what you kid can do-- vs what you kid "cant do" and all the stuff you WANT to do-- cause its your life too?
