I already said here tonight my dd is spoilt rotten. I also said I have no life really, just kids fighting.

I told both of them to tidy their rooms. Ds refused. (and he's the good one).

Jokingly, he rolled off the sofa and we tickled him to death, laughing his head off. All was well until with no warning he threw his phone at the wall and it broke into pieces. I didn't get it, we were all laughing up until this point. He said it was because our dog bit him (I was there doh, the dog did not bite him, he was pulling tug o war with ds's sock).

Give fucking up....I want to run away.

Get yourself a copy of 'how to talk so kids will listen and listen so kids will talk' I found this book really helpful when trying to understand my dd.

He has kind of punished himself though by breaking his phone grin

How old is your DS? I'm not great at wise could be something in the air, I could quite happily have driven off and left them all to yesterday evening!!!

But seriously, I am feeling more annoyed by it all at the moment because I haven't been out of the house on my own for ages, I need a break from it all (I don't think sitting in the kitchen with a coffee on MN counts!).

After last night I am also lowering my standards...again! I've been busting a gut to make fresh/proper meals every evening, frankly the days when I do fish fingers, frozen veg and ready mash are so much more relaxed! I am wondering if the tiny extra bit of nutritional value that they get from my cooking is worth the stress!
