Because I sure am!

My two have done nothing but argue, tantrum, refuse dinner, and answer back, since coming home from school...and the noise and mess!

My stress levels are feeling sky high!

They are only 3.9 (twins) so they dont know the difference, still have ds up though.

My boys are 4 & 8, and will argue that it's not bedtime, even when it is!

165 minutes to go. Not that I'm counting...

20 minutes before I get DS2 to bed, and 40 minutes before DS1 goes!
They are quiet for the first time since coming home from school, as they are watching TV.

I am getting the wine chilled!

Very much so . My dd watched video about fairies at school yesterday and then had me up half the night because she was scared and having bad dreams.
Who ever told me they would sleep really well when they start school lied. grin
22mins and counting.

1hr and 5 minutes until my lot go - DS1 and 2 are ok - but DS3 woke up at 5.20.....and 2 1/2hrs is a long time to keep him awake without some grumyness (and if I let him go early it will completely b*gger up tonights sleep and tomorrow naps too)....

I know it's Wednesday, and I know I have work in the morning, but I also feel I deserve a wine or two, SEA!

My house looks like a bomb has gone off today!

Pinkchampagne Wed 19-Sep-07 19:01:23

NAB3 Wed 19-Sep-07 19:04:39

Don't be envy. I doubt v much the pampering will happen. And I will prob burn the dinner!!
