RUN!!!! hahaha just kidding. I only have three and there are days that I feel like I am going to lose it too. On those days I find myself yelling at the kids a lot and that stresses me out even more, because they truely are great kids. I find it really helps to send them all into different rooms for a while (stops all fighting) and sometimes I will take turns calling each of them into a room with me (to bake, color, play game, etc....) for a while. That one on one time is really great for the kids and it is great for me too, because it is really calm and I feel I make a better connection with them.

Well I find it sometimes a bit overwhelming with just two. One 17months, the other 2 months. But when I need time I rely on my husband to step up for an hour or so. It is important to keep your sanity because if you aren't taking care of yourself how will you take care of others unless you run yourself into the ground. Take a bath, read a book, go to a room you can be by yourself for a while and just do something you like. I like to scrapbook, or update my photo album. We all need time for ourselves regularly. Good luck, and have fun!

i have 7 and one on the way, it depends on your situation. there are days i wish i could jump off the nearest bridge and days i love being mommy to so many. the good outnumber the bad by far so i try to keep that in mind when im stressed out. when your really stressed and need a few have a family time out. explain to the kids that you all need a time out so everyone can be happier, kids actually understand this better than you think. and i agree with Brandi, take time for you whenever you get a chance. hope this helped. have a good day.
