I am blessed that I have older kids too. Some days I do feel like I am chasing my tail. I am a go with the flow type person and that really helps.
Please pm me if your having a bad day. I know that we have those days and it's not because we have naughty kids or we are a failure, it just we are have a bad day or a bad week.
It funny if you have one or two kids you are allowed a bad day but sometimes it feels like if we have a bad day it is because we have so many kids and we can't handle it or they are naughty ferels etc. Which is a load of bull dust.
Anyhow I am here to listen if you ever need a shoulder to cry on or friendly ear.
