The biggest lie I was told

Dear the person that convinced me that having my kids 20 months apart was a good idea,


                                                            My nerves

I always thought that maybe I fought a lot with my sister because we were too far apart to really relate to each other but now that I see my children together I realize that we actually didn't fight that much at all compared to the 12 hour a day boxing tournament that goes on at my house.

I was always told that they would play together and make my life so much easier and entertain themselves so I have time to get things done and be best friends so they don't depend on having outside friends so much...ALL LIES!

My kids fight like they are training for the UFC and it's driving me crazy! They fight over different toys, they fight over the same toys, they fight over food, cups, candy, who gets to do everything first even get dressed, they fight over the tv, they fight over the dog and of course they are going to fight over Brian and me. They will bicker and argue going down the road or walking through a store and God forbid one touches the elevator button out of turn...there will be hell to pay!

I feel like a referee all day long. A referee that needs a shower, a day at the spa and possibly a therapist but a referee none the less. I don't know what to do. I want them to love each other as much as I love them. Plus I really like my hair and if I hear "I had that pirst" (first, no one can pronounce "f" words yet) I am afraid I won't be able to restrain from pulling it all out!!

Oh well it's just another day in paradise :) Happy Tuesday!


  1. Before I got pregnant with my son I told anyone who'd listen that I was going to have my children close together. then I found out that pregnancy is a vile state of affairs and couldn't hack the idea of feeling so ill whilst looking after my baby (who, incidentally, was a HORROR of a baby). Baby #1 didn't sleep through the night until he was 2.5 years old. hence he is currently 3 years old and an only child. I'm now thinking about 10 years is a good idea for an age gap. Don't know how you do it!

    1. LOL yes I think 10 years is probably good! Even 5 was ok. My oldest and my middle are 5 years apart. That's long enough to forget pregnancy miseries anyway! Oh and by the way my youngest is 2.5 now and he is just starting to sleep through some nights so I know how you feel!
