I cancel school for the day (if it is a school day) and make Mexican dinner with HUGE strawberry MARGARITAS. This happens at least once every 1-2 months. LOL
A bath, hot tea, a good book and a day off.
I sneak outside to have a cigarette.
I know, I know *cringe*
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
LEAVE HOME!!! I go away for a few hours when I feel really overwhelmed.
I go outside and stand on the porch for a while. Then, I tell myself and the kids we are having a *reset* LOL
We go do something active. I've found that my kids behavior is largely connected to their energy level.
Everything needs balance.
I want to scream & yell & pull my hair out but I try very hard not to go that rout. I usually make everyone separat & have a break from each other.
Yup! And sometimes it also helps to take a day off from regular schoolwork and do a day of all the fun outside stuff!
