I love my kids to bits. If I could let them do whatever they want and just have fun with them parenting would be a breeze. School holidays makes it worse. Ds is 5 and on preschool holidays. He is very demanding wanting time spent with him 24/7 . So I make time to do as he pleases building Lego or playing tennis etc. I give him plenty warning before I have to do other stuff but then he gets more demanding. Dd6 is good and can play by herself but can get so whiney about stuff. Gets very frustrating. Try to do and organise fun stuff for them but never good enough. So over it right now.
