Venting

I think I need to vent. I haven't hardly had a chance to blog at all these days. All I seem to do is referee children all day long every day. I'm so out of my mind worn out on it today. I'm all touched out. I'm on noise overload. I need some respect from my children. I feel too tired to fight. I just want to throw my hands up in the air and scream. why is it that everything is difficult? Why don't kid's just listen and readily obey? Parenting books seem to mock me and I honestly don't know what technique to use on my son. He's one tough cookie. One book says spank. One book says don't. One book says to bribe with promises of rewards and another one says toughen up that voice. (lol) I'm being extreme, I know.... just feeling exasperated right now.
Teething babies. Tired babies. Tired and irratible and disobedient 3 yr. old, clingy and somewhat annoying 5 yr. old. And then you read something that says just hug your child and they'll obey you in an instant. lol! (exagerating again...)
And I thought I wanted 6 kids. HA! I can't even handle 3 right now!
And honestly, how much can you declutter a house and yet still have what you need? And what DO you really need. And can you ever declutter enough so as to not have a mess everywhere you turn? I get all caught up and have my home nice and neat and i turn around and it's a disaster all over again. It's honestly tiring!
Oh dear. I don't know. I'd better go get my baby. She's awake and waiting. And I think my 3 yr. old escaped from his bed, and my 5 yr. old is climbing all over me.
Happy day to y'all.

  3. I can totally relate with you! It seems like the days are all the same. Be nice and two seconds later they are doing something to each other again. 17 months apart is not enough unless you have 6 arms to keep them separated. And Amina is not even talking yet.....Hope you have had a great Thanksgiving to refresh!
