    This is really bad.....but I know DD used to be really afraid of the vacuum when she was about 3, so if I ever wanted 5 minutes peace i'd just get the vacuum out and leave it going in the middle of the floor whilst I sat and had a cuppa. She'd run to her room and close the door.

    oh where to start..
    • Wiggles so I can shower.
    • Abc2/4 just because Ive had enough.
    • Coco pops for breakfast because It was faster then toast and porriage.
    • Cheese and Bacon rolls for 5 mins of peaceful shopping.
    • iphone play because i really really needed L to be quite.
    • Homebaked cookies as a reward for 3 days straight because I cooked a big batch and didnt want to eat them all myself.
    • Fish fingers and home made chips for dinner because I didnt have the energy for one more dinner battle.
    and sometimes i get the girls out of bed in the middle of the night and bring them to my bed for snuggle sleeps.

    Is this what the children do or is it what you do I laughed because sometimes I would love to show ds what it feels like when he people trash your room.

    I'm a bad mum because ds gets the iPhone whenever he wants it because I don't want to hear him whinge, he gets bad food on occasion as well

    My DS1 just got a DS for his birthday, so that is his new toy lol. So if I need a break Im sure to use that.
    TV/movie is my break if I need some peace.
    They are fine during shopping, they know if they be good then at the END of the shop they will get something special.
    Chocolate eggs are a special treat when they behave. Other than that, I give them money if I need them to do something like clean up. THey get pocket money lol

    I also just tell my daughter to "go away."

    I tell her to leave me alone for a bit because she's driving me mental and is about to make me really angry if she keeps at it - so to go away and do something else away from me.

    That's probably meaner and worse than all the "let my kids eat chocolate," stuff in here...

    Sassy, my 5 year old daughter never. Stops. Talking. So I feel your pain! I too have told het to go away and give me some space. I always feel bad about it, but can't help it sometimes the constant chatter is overwhelming
