Patience is a Virtue (i don't possess)

Do you ever have days (or weeks) where you just feel like you are going to loose it? I feel like the kids have been fighting the whole week and my patience is not just wearing thin it is gone. Jeremy has been working a ton lately and we have had 4-5 appointments a week. This means that I have to tote all 3 boys to each appointment by myself, make them behave, try and at least look like I have it together then come home get homework done with Lorenzo (don't even ask) and start it all again the next day. I have really been wishing we lived by family so that I could call up a mom, sister, grandma and say can you please pick up so and so from school today because I have to be 3 places at once and my cloning machine is on the fritz!

I feel your pain, literally. The kids have turned into some sort of devil spawn with Sam gone and I just want to lock myself in my room and cry. It's like some sort of nightmare version of the movie "Groundhog Day". I hope things look up for you soon :)

I hope you know you can always call me.....I will help you. Seriously, I know we don't know each other as well as a family relation....but please call when you need help. We are all in certain places for certain reasons.

My kids never seem to mind me when my husband is gone. I to feel your pain. I have twin boys that are 5 and they about do me in not mention one of them is autistic so i spend a lot of time in tears. I love them dearly dont get me wrong but it is such a relief when they are at pre-school and this week has been especially hard cuz ive been so sick and if you check my blog you can see the nice mess they left in there room while i was down in bed. Cheer up and hopefully things will get better.

Your cousin,
