I am a pissy bitch

I am BUGGED, CRAZY BUGGED, by my kids who fight fight and fight and don't listen. I yell and scream and hate that and want them to go to bed. I threaten to spank them. My Mom just keeps repeating herself and hanging over my shoulder and that makes me f*(^&*)g nuts. There are battles everyday with A and his behavior-yelling, hitting, slamming doors, calling names. I feel agitated. I can't really escape b/c my Mom is here in the living room.AAAAHAH


  1. Can you and your partner take the kids in any kind of shifts? Perhaps half-hour or hourly?

    I dare anyone to honestly say that this kind of shit doesn't drive them right throught the wall. You are not a bitch, you are human. A bitch would spank them without any warning, and perhaps do more than that.

  2. Dear Amiga, You are one of the nicest people I know. You have a lot on your plate and it is amazing that you have not really gone bananas at this point. I have been known for owling to the ceiling when I feel completely overwhelmed (with my kids looking at me in a concerned way).
    You are not the only one who wishes for her kids to go to bed early. Some days I feed them at 5 so they can be in bed no later than 7.
    You are a great mom and a great friend.
    I am very looking forward to our week end.
    Breath deeply, my friend.

  3. Actually, I think sometimes it is just ok to give ourselves permission to be a pissy bitch. It is also perfectly fine to suddenly realize that there is no milk/bread/peanutbutter/whatever that absolutely cannot wait one more minute, and take a little drive in the car to safeway (stopping at starbucks, the new icecream place or even the movie theater on the way). By the time you get back, you'll feel better and it will actually be bedtime.
