All of my kids were very active in-utero. And you certainly could not call a single one of them calm or laid back - I have a family of in-charge bossy busy-bodies
(And yes, they totally take after their mother. I admit it. I get it from my mother, so it's not my fault
) I can't have nice furniture in my house, because every single item of furniture is used as jungle gym/building material on a daily basis. My kids don't sit & watch TV, they watch TV standing on their heads, or trying to get their feet wedged under their sister, who is watching TV while reading a book.......uh, yeah. A little like me?
|Anybody else getting a little psychotic? Man the teeniest little thing sets me off and I'm raging! One little glitch in my day and I'm in a pissy mood for hours. It's so silly! I haven't gone off on anybody yet, but I have a feeling I will before February. I've also turned into a crybaby. I've never been a crier. It's a little bizarre not being able to control my emotions.
I was an absolute total wreck from Wednesday to Friday last week. Things were a mess around here, and that didn't help, but I'd find myself going off on the kids for the stupidest things in the world, and then bawling my head off. I watched Cheaper by the Dozen on Thursday, and cried through the entire second half
And Friday was a mess because DH wanted to surprise me by taking me on a trip out of town for my birthday......leaving it up to me to find people to take the 4 kids overnight, get one to his play rehearsal, get all their stuff together, baths done, hair washed & combed, church-clothes ready.......it was a nightmare. I spent the whole day crying, which in turn made DH pissy because I was totally not appreciating his "birthday present"
I've been fine since I got everything worked out Saturday morning, but man - I felt like I was going to just dissolve away in a big puddle of tears for a while there!
