I have 3 yr old and 2 yr old twins. The twins have been not listening and acting out. I think its because I am overwhelmed, having problems with my husband. I try and be patience but i dont know what to do anymore. I dont want to be this way to them.

Sounds to me like you need a day out. doesn't even have to be a full day off. Sometimes just a few hours to yourself to do something for you. Get a manicure, go to a coffee shop and read, shop, take a walk, whatever it is that YOU want to do. I know I don't always get time off, and I can start feeling very run down and very very overwhelmed. After an afternoon out, I feel so much better, and I have so much more patience with my kids.

As for having problems with your husband... are you two getting any time together just the two of you? It's very hard to get any time together when the kids are around. And while family time is important too, it's just as important to have one on one time with your spouse. That' something that I struggle with as we live 3000 miles away from the closest family member. We can't just go drop the kids off with Grandma and take a few hours to ourselves.
