ugh i feel so guilty that lately ive had such a short fuse. my girls who are 2 and almost 6 seem to push all my buttons at once. theyve been hitting eachother and not listening at all so it seems like iam always yelling at them. ive tried whispering but that doesnt work. a lot of it has to do with the winter season and all of us are just ready for spring. i dont know what happened but i feel like one big ball of tension and stress! i think my husband and i just need a night out to reconnect. it s been about 7 months since we went out alone. i love my kids with all my heart but i need a break!

I completely understand. My stepsons are 8 and 11 and quiet voices with them dont always work. There has been a lot of stress in my life and when they fight or do something wrong constantly i just feel like i lose it sometimes. If i know i was wrong though, i'll calm down and make sure to let them know that i didnt mean to maybe be so harsh or loud. sometimes they just catch me at a bad time and i snap but like i said, since they are a little older i'll apologize to them. The nights out i understand, i think in 2 years me and my fiance have had i think 2 dates just to ourselves. so i can deffinately relate. sometimes you just have to put your foot down and say ok find someone to watch the kids and steal him away. Thankfully, i am friends with my fiance's ex and she is so awesome and takes all 3 kids including our 15 month old... so i am so greatful to have her as well as my mom sometimes. sometimes you just need those reliefs so you can gain back your sanity. i hope the best for you and hope you can keep your sanity haha. good luck!

I hear you hitting I would use time out rigt away. The screamming I would let them know thats an outside voice and we use our inside voices when we are in side then bunddle them out and take them out to yell all they want and let them know when you go in we use our insside voices.
