They bicker, they whine, they cry - big, huge tears with loud whailing, my 5yo tells fibs, my 2yo hits, my 2yo whines, they fool around at nap time and then are unbearable by 5p.m., my 2yo whines (did I mention that one!????), my 5yo is the 'boss of every one and everything,' and my husband comes home, eats, does yard work (of course that is important, too) and I'm left with making dinner, cleaning up dinner, corraling the girls inside and away from the neighborhood kids for a bath (in which they bicker, hit, push, whine and cry), and then wrestling them into bed.
Yes, we have fun, too, but lately it seems like I have more down times than up times. Can anyone offer any words of encouragement? I feel like I'm in a downward spiral - our bad moods feed off of one another and just keep getting worse. I'm sure these negative emotions aren't very good for the baby, either. My DH company is at the end of their fiscal year and he rarely gets home before 6:30 at the earliest, and I know that's part of the problem too, but he can do nothing to change that. I KNOW he can't change it, which also pisses me off, and then I have the guilt - oh, the guilt! I can't even get angry anymore without having guilt to go along with it!
Sorry for the ramble.
