you know what I hate? I hate it when someone says: "when my kids whine, I tell them I can't hear whining, and I only listen to nice voices."
apparently mine didn't get the memo, or they are too young, or I am doing this totally wrong, because oh.my.word. AHHHHH.
okay, deep breath. they are both napping now so i am sipping coffee and pretending all is right in the world.
I think its their ages. I knew the year of a 2 year old and a 3 year old would be "challenging" to say the least. But the whining and screaming all.day.long. makes me yell at them and well, that's not good for any of us. Regretful words have happened in this house recently. Sad to have to write that, but its true.
I am totally at a loss for what to do. And the worst part? I feel so frantic with all the other areas of life, that it some days I have no energy for the most important parts. I am raising them into adults. I always need to remember that.
So if anyone has good tips or tricks, or books or ANYTHING I'd love to hear it.
Deep Breath. In and out. It will be okay...
