buy one get one free

I have to give credit to all the mom's who handle a mini wolf pack of children.
I have one full time and my step son who lives with us 75% of the time.
I have no patience, I have no inside voice telling me to 'calm down'
I always thought I was gonna have a handful of kids and be playing baseball at the park with my own little team.... 
I have one, and that is all I need, and or want. 
End of story.
It was a buy one get one free with my step son,
My husband always has had his son, I met him when he was a year old.. 
He is now going to be 7. 
Don't get me wrong, he is mine
I wouldn't trade him for anything (enless..)

I never thought I was going to be the "strict" parent.. but I am!
I don't like yelling in the house, I don't like running inside that is for outside, I enforce the same rules in school, at home. 
Keep your hands to yourself, and listen when an adult talks to you.
Got it? Good.

Well, lately I feel like the wicked witch of upstate new york. 

They are the best of friends, 
and they fight like they are married. 
But they WONT seperate to play, read, take a bath, eat..
Maybe it's just the age? Maybe its my rules?
Do I need to ease up?

So if I stop posting its because im in a closet, pulling my hair out, eating fun size snickers and rocking back and fourth. 

Cheers to 3 & 6 year olds! 


  1. I think it is kids main purpose in life to drive their parents crazy. My kids do the same thing until I'm ready drive off a cliff. I guess the good thing is that they will eventually grow out of it, say 15 years or so? :)

    1. Thanks Amanda, it's nice to know im not the only one. I just hate the feeling of the day winding down and thinking back on it and feeling like all ive done is yell all day. Hahahaa, im going to celebrate when they leave for college, i may even throw my own 'congrats' party for myself, just because I made it out of younger years alive! :)

  2. Omgoodness. I am a stay-at-home, HOMESCHOOLING mom to 4 kids. Some days, I swear I hate them. Why did I have them? WHAT WAS I THINKING??? Rofl Other days I feel terrified that something might happen to one of them and it would be my fault for being so annoyed by them that God just took them from me. Crazy, right? What I was thinking having 4, I don't know. But I wouldn't trade a single one of them in! :) I would, however, love to calm them down and make them adults instead of annoying kids. Haha Thanks for coming by my blog. Congrats on your success so far!
