I swear it sounds like we are sharing the same life. Bryce also comes at me with cars or action figures, really anything he can find and I feel my skin crawl! i thought I was the only one feeling this way. What a relief to know I am not! The last two days he has been playing very well with a neighbor girl and I am so happy for him. My husband just started a better paying job that also gives him more time around here too and I am so thankful because now he can help by entertaining him while I take care of the rest.
The other kids are doing fine with everything. They are so involved with school, activites, friends and family that it really hasn't bothered them too much. At first there were times I feel it did, like when I was pregnant and afraid to get far from the midwives and too big to drive anymore and then after they were born and we were stuck at home for the most part the first year. I finally feel like this summer will be a good one and we can get out and enjoy life again as a family since Amber and Jade are more mobile.
I too feel like I have a super short fuse but I think having multiples and then also having other children really puts a strain on us and eats at our nerves stressing us out in ways we have never known before! I can totally understand where you are coming from.
Bryce too watches too many cartoons but here lately we have been reading a lot more books while I nurse. I came across some that were mine when I was a child and he really is enjoying them.
I also have to say that one thing that has saved me is my MIL living so close. She has kept Bryce alot over the last 2 years so he can get days of 100% attention and he loves it! SOmetimes he will ask to stay 3 days straight and I let him becasue I know he is getting something I just am not available to give him right now. DO you have help from family?
Feel free to email me anytime and maybe we can survive this together!
