Sometimes when I am already stressed as is with bills and money, my kids seem to know the right buttons to push to make me even more stressed! There are many times where I feel like I can't handle it anymore but in the end I always do. Do your kids sometimes drive you insane or am I the only one!?

Sweet pea, I *know* I'm going crazy. But I'm on medication for it. :)

And no, you're not the only one. Every mommy needs a break from kids. At the end of the day when my hubby comes home he always takes the imp and lets me relax. It's really helpful. :)

Oh, believe me you are so not alone. I have a 2 y/o that I swear she already knows where my bad buttons are. She knows I'm a clean freak as in the mornings I make her breakfast and start cleaning the house right away. I never ever go to bed with anything out of place, I'm so very anal about that I mean to the point that I will very openly admit I need professional help. So if I wake up in the morning and my fiance or his brother makes a mess and doesn't pick it up, it completely throws off my day and I'm in a very bad mood all day. My daughter knows this and will destroy a room that I just cleaned and run to me to tell me to clean it then starts to laugh at me. Like tonight I spent 4 1/2 hours deep cleaning the kitchen, scrubbing the appliances, cleaning the floor boards/skirting, ect, and my fiances brother destroyed the kitchen coming home drunk, so i yet again cleaned the kitchen and my daughter asked for cereal and when she got it she ate 2 bites and laughed as she dumped the bowl of cereal all over the floor. After cleaning non stop for the last 7 hours all I wanted to do was cry.

Sweetie you are not alone there are times when i feel like I have a oneway ticket on the crazy train..lol I have three kids and they know how to stir things up especially my oldest she is seven going on 15 and always has somthing to say. My best advice is to remember to take a moment for yourself even if its just to breathe. And even though there are stressful times all the other times make it all worth while.

No..you are not the only one! : ) They seem to know when you are very stressed so they can push and push your buttons to drive you even more crazy then you felt before. Hang in there, it gets easier! : )
