I'm usually quite controlled and measured, but this past week has been a killer.
The downside of having 3 girls in an 18 month age-difference range is what I'm experiencing right now. The testing of boundaries. TIMES THREE.
All of them questioning/arguing/challenging/disobeying.
This I can handle if one of them is having an 'off day'. But lately it's EVERY day. Rude, attention-seeking behaviour - which I am giving them the attention. In positive ways - but then one mucks up and it's a bloody mutiny - I spend so much time putting children in and out of naughty corners, bedrooms that I'm just run ragged.
I've had a tension headache for a week I can't get rid of. I'm seriously getting to the end of each day and thinking about drinking as a coping mechanism... and anyone who knows me - knows that's NOT me. Two cocktails tonight. TWO.
I've got to stay consistent and not kill someone!! It's HARD.
So if I'm not around online-blog-otherwise - you know why.. I might either be at the funny farm or at the hospital.
PLEASE MAKE THIS PHASE GO AWAY!!
Positive attitude tomorrow. It's got to get better!
