Sometimes I wish I didn't have any kids! I feel like I can't control my kids anymore! I feel like I can't even get my house under control either! What am I to do!? I'm having a bad day! Right now I'm tired and frustarated, hope the day gets better not worse.

I feel exactly the same. My daughter is a pretty well behaved kid but she does insist on making a mess and not wanting to clean up after her. So I clean and within an hour it looks like WW3 has happened. It wears me out and winds me up. I just sit down, take a deep breath and go on from there.

Sometimes I would like to get into reading and wrting poetry like I did in the old days. I feel so old these days!

I have those days. Mostly because I am pregnant with our third right now, but even before I thought about shipping them off to the circus or joinng myself. Have you got someone to take them for a couple of hours? It really sounds like you need some regular uninterupted YOU time. I know it helped me immensely when I joined a group (Orchid Society 'cause I love the plants). Is there something you really would like to do?

I totally understand. My stepson just moved in and talk about throwing a wrench into things. When I get this way I try to step back and remember the kids wont be around forever and someday I'll have more time on my hands then I know what to do with. If you live in America just remember...SUMMER IS COMING... lol time to kick the kids outside!

i think every one feels like this can ware us out, mabey more so if your a stay at home mum and never seem to get time away from them. yea we love them to bits but sometimes being a homemaker can be hard work. its a never ending job! never feel ashamed to ask for a little help if things get on top of you. people will understand.

sometimes i feel like things are getting a bit out of control. but i get a babysitter for the night (normaly my mum or my partners mum) then when ive got the alone time wich is much needed i can get the house work under control, put my feet up and have a nice long bath without getting interupted. every one needs a break from time to time.
