Yesterday our psychologist told me that I am just too hard on myself. To make that clearer: Two of my kids have ADHD (I wrote about it) and esp DS is driving me insane at the moment. I feel that I am just running after them and try to stop them from killing themselves. (that worked surprisingly good until now ;) )
I am diagnosed with ADHD myself, as is my DH, so we are probably the most chaotic family in the universe. I try to do all the housework, but I am always behind, and as soon as I cleaned something, there is a mess somewhere else. *sigh*
DD is gifted and goes bananas without enough stimulation so we do an outing per day. After school. (she is going to a public school, as homeschooling is illegal here).
In the car they (DD and DS) want to listen to audiobooks and do not talk to me at all
And they get so wild at the evenings that the bedtime ritual is mostly a chasing around and trying to read to them while the baby cries. (somehow I cannot get there sleep schedule in line)
And in Feb I am going to start to work again...
I guess I need to establish some rituals here. It is just so damn difficult to play fun games with these kids.
