*Constant crying causes ear loss.*
*Holding a crying baby causes back problems and ear loss.*
*Holding a crying baby with another middle child crying added in causes back pain, ear loss and insanity.*
*3 kids under age of 4 causes sleepless nights and hair pulling days full of "no", "stop that", "you need to share or else all the toys are going in the basement" to which my daughter usually replies back with "go ahead, we don't want to play any more anyways."*
Sometimes I just do not understand how the mom on "19 and Counting" does it. She talks in hushed tones and is forever patient. I am constantly screaming and yelling and my kids are picking up on this.
Whenever we USED to (past tense) hit/smack/spank our kids for their misbehavior, it showed my kids that in anger it was OK to hit others also. So I stopped. I did not want my kids to learn that. My patience seems to have flew out the window these days. I feel like I snap so easily and its affecting my health.
