Do you ever get the feeling of being a monster mom???
I do... And monster mom has been here quite often lately.
And I am really trying to get her to leave, but it is hard.
And I can not blame it all on the kids, even if they are eating each other eyes out several times a day.
The kids are yelling, I am yelling and I am pretty sure if we had a pet - it would be yelling too...
And I am so tired of it.
I need to think through what kind of mom I want to be.
I have to put my needs aside for a while and do things and play more with the kids.
I miss when we all could sit down at the table and draw without the kids fighting over the pencils.
I see that the biggest "problem" is to get all three of them to work together and cooperate.
and I have been talking alot about that the past days, so now Endre is going around saying to himself: "We need to cooperate" ;)
So there might be a light at the end of this thunnel!
But I guess as they grow up they want to do different things, and I wish I could split in three and be there for all of them at the same time. But I can't.
And I know it is just a fase in our lives we are going through, but it hurts when all I want is my kids to be the best friends in the world and not fighting over everything.
And I see that we need to do more together as a family.
Not just during the weekends.
It can be difficult when hubby is working late almost every day.
But then we just have to use the time we have.
So yesterday we went up to our lean-to and made dinner there.
Despite the kids fighting we had a good time (at least I think so...)
We need to turn the tv and the computer off more often and do more of this.
I am so looking forward to dark nights and hiking in the dark with flash lights :)
But who am I really to complain?
I have healty kids, we love each other and have all the things we desire.
I guess I just had to let it off my chest....
