I am so frustrated with the kids today. Not for anything that's abnormal for a 6, 3 and 1 year old. But I've been in a crappy mood all morning and them touching me, asking me for stuff, making messes just makes it worse.

One part of it. I hate it when the house is a mess. Hate it. Everybody's been sick and are finally mostly better, but the house is a wreck. It puts me in a really bad mood. I want to clean, but they keep bugging me. And really, for them, it's not that they're bugging me. It's that I have too much stuff to do and take care of them too.

Well, the kids I'm watching today are here now. I'm going to go eat with everybody. I'm glad I'm working here today, because as bad as it sounds, it's easier to be nice when there are other people around.

Sorry you having a bad day! We all have those times when we want to pull our hair out! I suggest you put a good movie on for the kiddos and take a little break. Paint you toe nails or just sit and breathe for a few minutes. It will not hurt anyone to have some down time especially if they have been sick. Hope you start to unwind and feel better.

Having a 6, 3 and 1 year old myself, I totally symathize! I have been there myself on many a day. And, it is easier to be nice when there are others around. Can you engage the big kids into helping clean up? I hope your day gets better.

That's the worst for me, too! Sometimes I just make it from 5 minutes to the next 5 minutes.

Any chance you can get out of the house and go somewhere the kids can blow off steam/cabin fever?

Or is there a treat you can give yourself....a cafe mocha or something.

ETA: hope lunch was relaxing!
