I love my kids to the moon and back and find spending time with them one of the most precious things in my life. Doing things together, teaching them every little thing from manners to ABCs to stories to science gives me an immense sense of satisfaction. However life with two toddlers, with their mild to full-blown tantrums, with their constant demand for attention and with their sibling bickering and filling their day with busy activities leaves me not only as one mentally and physically exhausted mom but I feel a huge void due to lack of adult conversations, sharing wavelength and connecting with people. I would like to know if there are other SAHMs who feel the same way and what they do to combat this given that there is not much time to spend outside of home. The last thing I would want is for this built-up frustration to get channeled on to my kids, so I don't be short with them because according to me patience is THE BIGGEST attribute a parent must possess and constantly improve on during child rearing. Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated!
