I am a 29 year old stay at home mom with two beautiful girls,3 and 4. They are a handful. They laugh together one minute and fight a second later. I feel like I am always yelling at them. My husband is a greay guy who loves us dearly but it drives me crazy when he get's home from work or has a day off and I am still left to do everything. I understand he is tired, but so am I. With all of the laundry, cooking, and cleaning I am done by the end of the day. I even feel guilty when they want to read a book with me, or want me to lie down with them at night and read them a bed time story and I just don't want to. My girls do NOT sleep through the night so I am up with them in the morning and at night. Why does he just watch me do everything? There are times when I've had enough and I turn to him and say can you do it this time. I also get annoyed with my mom, sister, and brother for yelling at my girls when they are doing something wrong. Now I am all for family help and them correcting my girls when they are doing something wrong, but why do they have to yell. They are my girls and it is my job. I feel like the mother lion coming out of her den. Or if the girls are doing something wrong and I start to open my mouth to correct them and my sister, who has no kids (neither does my brother for that matter) cuts me off and starts doing it. I am there, back off and let me be the mom. We get into fights all the time and I am always telling her don't yell at my kids. She thinks it's so easy to raise children and I keep telling her you have no idea until you have your own. I used to swear up and down that when I had kids they were always going to listen to me and never talk back, that was a joke. So I guess I am wondering if anyone else has ever or is now going through the same thing. Thanks.
