From M’s crying. From his neediness. From him having to sleep next to me at night. From him waking so early. From him not eating. From him not napping well. From him being a freak-out child right before dinner, when I don’t have a third arm to carry him around with.
From A yelling at her brothers. From her not wanting them in her room. From her refusing to play with R. From her complaining that x, y or z is not fair.
From R bugging K. From R constantly asking, begging, to play on the computer/iPad/iPod. From R begging A to play with him. From R never staying in his chair. From R never listening. From R hitting K.
From K screeching at A and R. From him biting R. From K not listening when I ask, then crying when I make him do something.
From being the referee. From being the only one making all the food. From all the tidying. From putting away the dishes every single day. From having to hold my own frustration in when dealing with their frustrations.
I would just like a break. Please.
