I have 5 grandchildren -- 2 are the best kids and I enjoy being with them . My problem is the other 3.. When they come over, they are like 3 hurricanes ........ They immediately tell me they are hungry, bored, want to play all in one breath.. One is in the refrigerator, the other is begging for attention to play ... the third is going thru my personal items, all in about 5 to 10 minutes of their arrival..
I have set boundaries down. No jumping on couches, going thru drawers, refrigerator, begging for more food.. I feel like a Army sargeant , and the minute I turn my back, they are into something else .. I don't enjoy these children, sounds horrible for a grandmother, but I cannot handle 3 at one time.. Ages 4.5, and 10..
I'm out of solutions, .. any suggestions? After 2 hours, I feel like wiped out.. HELP
