Good waiting on my mother in law to come get my daughter until sunday. Need a vacation from kids but one will due. it's stressful dealing with 2 kids all day,7 days a week.
And I was shocked so you have someone willing to take your son, and you complain about how you want both gone? Then I hear it's common to have breaks from kids so on and so forth, husband rages cause we have two special needs children and no one offers us breaks, or even a night alone. The only time I have been away from my kids is when I am in the hospital, even then there is a cot made up in the room for them and the last few times they stayed with me.
My reponse is I don't know exactly what my husband said but I agree with him mostly. REALLY? Someone please spend a day in my life then tell me how hard their kids are.When people complain they want a break I would love to let them spend 20 minutes with either Leith or Annora then let them count their blessings. OR take them down to Texas Childrens when the kids have one of their appointments and you see a kid brought in on a strecher with a breathing machine attached and tubes everywhere and you want to cry cause that is so horrible, but you don't cause you know if the mother can stand there with a smile on her face what nerve you have for crying.
I was then got blasted cause apparently everyone has the right to complain and everyone needs a break and blah blah blah.. WHY become a mother if you want breaks? I just don't get it. Whatever happened to count your blessings as someone surely has it worse than you.
