In case you don't know, TGFNT stands for Thank Goodness For Nap Time.

I take a break to get away and get my mind back to where it should be and all hell breaks loose. My family of 3 daycare kiddos, "BB", "SB" and "KB" forgot how to have manners and not be mean to others. I have spent the past week trying to get them back to where they were before Thanksgiving, with "SB" being the worst of the bunch. I may boycott Christmas so that I don't have to go through this again in a few weeks.

My days have went like this all week: "SB" please don't hit your sister. "SB" please don't hit your brother. "SB" please don't take the toys away from the other kids. "SB" DO NOT HIT ME! "SB" do not take that from her. "SB" you are going to take a time out if you do that again. "SB" now you need to take a time out. "SB" you can get out of your time out now. Do you know what you did to make you take a time out? What are you going to do different? "SB" you need to apologize to her. "SB" you need to apologize to him. "SB" I asked you a question, you need to answer me. "SB" why are you doing this? "SB" okay, no gummy butterfly for you today. "SB" do not tell me hunt-na (nu-uh). "SB"...."SB"...."SB"!!! And no "SB" is not a shortened version of SOB but I have definitely felt like saying that a few times this week. I may never take another vacation.

Seriously though, I am having a hard time coming back to all this. Maybe it's me. I asked my Hubby if it was just me and he said "No, I think they forgot everything you have taught them." So, if it's not me, that's a good thing, right? I am so wishing I was putting in 7am to 6pm days again. I am not sure how much longer I can survive doing this. I feel like I am trapped in the house, with no outside life. I miss having time for myself, being able to just lay on the couch and fall asleep watching TV. I miss being able to jump in the car with Hubby and go visit friends. I miss being able to have a "quickie" in the evenings when our daughter is a work. Ok, so maybe that was to much info, but it's the truth. I miss my life. Great, now I am sitting here typing this post crying. What a wonderful feeling this is. :(

I am thinking about sitting my family (Hubby and daughter) down and telling them that they are going to have to start helping me around the house. I am not quite sure how it will go but something has to give. It was so nice the other day when Hubby fixed supper and I didn't have to do anything but the clean up. I absolutely hate asking for help, it makes me feel like a failure of sorts. I feel that I should be able to handle everything. Hubby tells me that all I have to do is ask but I feel that I shouldn't have to ask, it should just be a given that they help. I may have to introduce them to the vacuum, trash bags, toilet brush and other household necessities but hopefully in the end it works.

I so need me a nap. Why is it that the kiddos get to take themselves a nap and I have to stay awake. I think that is just all wrong, I think I should be able to curl up and enjoy sleeping just like they do.

Since Hubby is home and my darling daughter is making a WalMart run for me, I just talked myself into going in the daycare room and laying down with the kiddos for a bit. Maybe I could get a nap in. I doubt it though, I am sure the phone will start ringing as soon as I lay down, that is usually what happens to me. :( Wish me luck.

Wow, I just read over my post and I am a sad sad soul aren't I? And a whiney one at that!
