"Poor Me" tales of a frazzled mom...

Over the weekend Em was invited to ride along out of state to visit a friend. I knew this would make Em happy, so the arrangements were made. Not only did she get to go on a trip without a single family member, I hear she also got an entire seat in the van to herself!! She got to stay at her friends house and got to interact with other teenage girls!!
With Em being away for the weekend that left Jake oldest child. He was hired by his uncle to do some work (for pay) so off he went to earning money. Sunday he got to spend the day at his friends house....
So that leaves Tim oldest child...Tim and Sarah got along great. There was no fighting, whining or complaining. Tim didn't tease, agitate or annoy anyone! Sarah, was a big helper and got along with her brothers.
Josh on the other hand....He is going to make me gray by the end of the year! If he doenst bleed atleast once a day...His day isn't complete! He is a climber! He has to climb everything! But, what goes up, must come down...... He is exhausting alone! Nap time is cherished.
so that brings us to Monday morning! Mom is trying to be nice to kids and takes puppy out at 6:30am the kids get to stay in bed. When the kids do get up, they are fighting, whining, complaining, annoying, yelling, hitting, crying oh and the attitudes......You get the idea.
So, they are all grounded! What is a mom to do.....

Hmm..sounds like a good idea! lol don’t know how that would ever work though.
Another thing that puts all in a bad mood is being in friend’s homes that are larger in size than ours...Em and Jacob both experienced that over the weekend...we come home to our little house and battle for space. Makes for a crabby day…

I have no advise -- I don't know what I'd do in your place. But I can send you a hug :-)

Hmmm. I was gonna suggest sending three kids over here for a weekend, but they might be in a bad mood when they got home again! Um, I'll send Gino and my kids to your house for a weekend and you can come hang out here?? :) Hug from me too.
