I am new to MumsNet but having read through some of the discussions I just wanted to share. After the afternoon from hell with my four year old and 22mth old twins, I just wanted to know that I am not alone in just wanting the be the best parent I can but sometimes finding it the most frustrating and thankless task in the world. The worst thing is loving them more than anything on the planet but also wanting to throw them out of the window . Although I am over the worst now as I always believe tomorrow is another day (thank God for Scarlett O'Hara) and a I have indulged in a couple of glasses of theraputic red wine, I would love to know I am not struggling alone (don't get me wrong the highs do outweigh the lows), and would love to hear of any top tips to get you through when the little ones are getting you down!
All I can say is that it does get better! My 6 yrold and 3yrold twins are good playmates now and sleep in too. My only tip is to not sweat the small stuff and don't expext too much of the 4yrold because they're a baby too.
Thanks for that, I do think though I already wish their lives away to too much! I do probably expect too much of my 4 yr old, bless him. Fortunately sleeping hasn't been a problem, but we are moving into big beds soon, so probably about to change!
I'm back if anyone has any tips or wants to take over the screaming. I am actually smiling today as today was a good day to die take one's three kids to soft play then Pizza Hut (bad mother) and just enjoy being a mum!!!
