My sanity is gone

I have started babysitting, going to have two extra kids 3-4 days week. They are pretty good kids, listen really well but when they get together with my kids, everyone is hyper and the toy room gets trashed. Combine that with a severe lack of sleep and normal mommy stuff, my nerves are fried.....I need time to unwind and until Saturday....that is not happening. Just in case I go crazy before then....you know why.

Re: My sanity is gone

Can I join you? I only have my three kids but the youngest likes to stay up until 2-3am and then nurses the rest of the night.

If there are other just like you then you are no longer crazy but normal.

This is EXACTLY what went on here the last two days, with my two and their cousin. I finally told them that they had to ask me to play with anything, anything at all, so that I could make sure that the last thing they played with was properly put away before they made a huge mess with something else. It actually worked really well and I'm going to do that from now on when kids come over!

Anyway, I hope you get some sleep tonight at least!

Today has been slightly calmer then yesterday but my house is still trashed and I do not like it one bit.

Ugh! Since I started doing daycare it's been crazy trying to stay on top of household stuff. I get and keep the common areas clean because I "have to" but then I totally slack on laundry and areas you can't see! LOL I need to get a better routine. Once everyone is healthy again I need to get back into a routine!
