    Default I feel like I must be the worst Mum when...

    When my 5 year old wets the bed on purpose (ie while she is awake) just to get my attention

    Default I feel like I must be the worst Mum when...

    When I yell at the kids "Sit down!" and I know the neighbours can hear me coz the back door is open. They must think I expect my children to be sitting at all times, but I yell it out to them because they are jumping on the couches and I want them to stop!

    When my 23 mo doesn't go to bed till 10pm but the thought of dropping his day sleep fills me with horrible anxiety of having no "me time" during the day.

    jasper got to that at 20 months. Can I say for me it was the difference of swapping a "lunch break" for an "early knock off" and I'd rather knock of early any day we got our evenings back to watch movies, eat dinner, have a glass of wine.

    But it is hard going straight through no break. :-/ but I found it easier.

    .... when my Aspie child goes on a spiel about Lego he has made that he is so proud of. And it has this that does this and then it has that over here that does that because of xyz and abc and that guy does this and blah blah blah blah blah.... and then after a while I start acting really really disinterested but he still doesn't stop, so then I have to ask him to stop. I feel terrible but his psych says I'm doing the right thing... :/
