I am at a loss! I do not know what to do about my stress level. This past week my children have turned into messy, spoiled, not listening devils! They are 11,9 and 5. My house is turned upside down from them. They have cleaned up the same rooms over and over 3 to 5 times a day yet to still mess up. I am not talking about a few blocks or books here and there I am talking about stuff everywhere. I am not feeling good to start off with and hubby is not making anything any easier. His response to my tear soaked face was well your home all day just tell them to clean! I swear I saw myself lunge forward to strangle him lol On top of that I have my MIL living with us who has NEVER lifted a finger to help cook, clean, wash towels, scrub bathroom nothing, nada, not even to vacuum her own area where she is staying at! Just because I am a SAHM doesn't mean I should do everything. Am I wrong? I never get a break. I never get a vacation. I never go anywhere without my kids. The only friend I have is my sister. I just feel helpless. I don't know what to do anymore! Well I am done venting time to go clean yet again cuz I am supose to do everything! Yet get no credit for it being done!
