Went from 2 people and a cat- added 2 dogs and 8 people overnight
Normally living at my house is me, daughter and her Cathie at my house is my ex (yes he got out of hospital), our family dog that lives with him, our son (that is in army is visiting for first time since back from Afghanistan), sons new puppy and sons friends ... 6 of them.
sure I'm thrilled to see son.... But two dogs and 8 more people here is a huge adjustment. It's loud and rowdy here tonight!
my kids (9 and 20) already can't get along! Daughter wants to constantly be around son and his friends and well they just aren't always talking about/watching appropriate stuff for a 9'year old.... So then she cries and acts ugly.
son got here at 7am and its been crazy since 2pm and will be for two solid weeks. I know he wants tomhangmwith friends, I'm not upset.... Just sad daughter is upset.
oh and did you catch the part about my ex bing here. That is added stress. Yes he helps cook and keep the big kids under control but its still stressful!
