What do you do?

What do you do when....

  • Your 2 year old keeps throwing things, kicking, pushing the soft spot, yelling, pushing down, biting, stealing toys, etc. etc (with your 9 month old)?
  • You send your 2 year old to time out and he laughs at you no matter how mad you get at him!
  • Your 9 month old thinks naps are not for him and does everything he possibly can to stay awake every moment of the day?
  • Your 9 month old likes to wake up 3 or 4 times a night.....still?
  • Your 2 year old takes a 5 minute nap during the day and stays up till 10 pm?
  • You are trying your best to keep your 2 year old from watching tv during the day.
  • Your 2 year old wakes up EVERY SINGLE night and cries in his bed until he gets to go in mama's bed.
  • You are so exhausted you can hardly function, you are getting depressed and want your own mommy to come see you...NOW!
  • You get a gym pass to help with some of the stress but you can't go because you are too busy wiping your kids noses every minute of the day.
  • You get to share a car with your husband for 5 years of marriage and you just can't take it anymore.
  • That sweet husband of yours reminds you that with all the stress you feel in your life it cannot even compare to what horrible things other people go through, especially people in Haiti right now.  
  • You know he's right but you still want to have a pity party for yourself sometimes:)
These are a few of the fun things we have been doing at our house for the past 3 weeks.  I guess this sounds really negative but I still manage to smile and have hope that it will be better tomorrow!
