Do you ever lose your patience?
It’s been a really rough summer for me. My kids have been driving me up to the wall. I need a break from my crazy life. I need a nap, a vacation, something. HELP ME!
School can not start up fast enough.
Look, I seriously love my kids but I am struggling. Every day, kids are coming in and out and in and out. For the love. It’s enough! My house doesn’t stay clean for more than 5 minutes. What’s the point of cleaning?
They aren’t the only ones coming in and out, it’s their friends too. Friends coming in and out all day. Also, going through my pantry, looking for food. Um, hello? I would never do that when I was a kid.
Am I the only mom in the neighborhood who feels this way? I can’t be alone on this.
I lost my patience so many times already, I lost count. Usually, I end up hiding in my room just to get away from all the craziness.
I’ve come to the point where wifi and television are raising my children. I just cant! I’m tired and I don’t even feel guilty about it.
I’m burnt out, man! Like, I want to go to work just to getaway. It’s the only break I can get.
I Lost My Patience
I lost my patience the other day because my middle child kept watching youtube and I told him to get off of the TV several times. He ended up grounded.
Last week, I lost my patience with my youngest because he keeps hitting his brother and sister. He got grounded too.
Yesterday, I lost my patience with my daughter because her room was a disaster. She, luckily cleaned it so did not get grounded.
Let me tell you, I am so grateful for my daughter. She keeps me sane when I’m surrounded by boys.
In the midst of all of my chaos, my daughter is the one who calms me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my boys so much. They are the light of my life but they are crazy boys! I feel like I need to reiterate that fact that I love them.
At times, I feel like I don’t deserve my children because of my impatience. This sounds horrible when I say it out loud.
I know several other mothers out there who are the epitome of patience. Why can’t that be me?
Trying to leave the house is always such an ordeal. As soon as we say, “we are leaving”, one of the boys ends up needing to poop or something. Why can’t they ever go poop when we’re just sitting around, doing nothing?
This drives me freaking bonkers!
Literally, five minutes ago, my boys come inside with some neighborhood kids and they are covered in styrofoam. We just got new couches and the pieces of styrofoam are sprawled all over the backyard.
I mean, what else are they going to do? The only thing left is to burn the house down!
They are currently in the backyard cleaning and when they’re done, the friends are going home. This is why I lose patience! I consider myself a pretty sensible woman but when something like this happens, I lose my freaking mind!
That’s all I’m saying! I have lost my patience and I have my reasons. Namely, kids!
Thanks for letting me vent about my little problems. I appreciate it.
Do you ever lose your patience with your kids? How do you deal with it? I need pointers because I need some help!
Let me know how you deal with the craziness down below!
