I am having the hardest time with me 6 and 3 year olds right now. i feel like all I ever do is get on to them. I am trying to go to school for nursing and my husband works weird hours. I can't keep up with the cleaning and give them all the attention they want. The stress level in the house is way higher than I want it to be. I just want things to be pleasant. But the more work I have to do for school or church the more work they make for me fighting and making more messes. When I am studying, I feel like I am stopping every five minutes to resolve some problem they are having. Then I hear about moms who love to read novels or watch soaps and I can't even imagine how they do it. I wind up yelling to them from the laptop. Then I feel awful at the end of the day for being so mean. How do some of you control the kids behavior while completing your tasks without turning in to monster mommy?
