Am tired, kids haven't stopped bickering and demanding. Dh is away in America for a week. Have just lost a dvd which we hired from the library.
Dh only went away yesterday - just wondering how I'm going to get through the rest of the week.
DDs have been in school all day so I have only seen them for 3 1/2 hours but they are driving me mad already. Can't wait to get them to bed.
Do I sound horrid?
I've had two glasses of wine already and am wondering if I can fob ds off with a dvd rather than CBeebies so he doesn't know what time it is and I can get him to bed early!! So no, you're certainly not horrid at all! Life on your own coping with kids can be bloody hard work!
Try not to think about the rest of the week, just move them towards bedtime a bit earlier than usual . I don't think you sound horrid. 3 and a half hours is a really long time when they are playing up.
I think I've calmed down a little now. Kids are eating their tea and I have time to breath.
Next step will be up the stairs and into bed.
Then pour myself a nice glass of wine.
