Anyone else have them? I feel alone.
I take them out to playgroups/play dates and libraries to socialise them (and me) but find they only cry, carry on and my 1yr old won't let me out him down. I don't get to talk to the other mums because my kids are both screaming about something, if not in my face pulling at my bra/clothes, cracking a tanty over what not and basically embarrassing me. I always have to leave mid convo to deal with them. The other kids are so calm and the parents get to chat to each other and enjoy the session. My 3 yr old has been doing to these activities since 18mths and my 1yr old has been taken along since a newborn. I just don't get it. My 3yr old attends day care also one day a week and has for about 12mths now.
They cry and carry on so much at home, at the park, while out at the shops and need constant stimulation that I'm just exhausted and in now let them cry (when at home) and leave them to sort it out on their own....and they do to my amazement. I have to limit their outside time as they tend to scream and fight no matter what I do and I feel sorry for my neighbours.
For the record, I have NO help. Hence why dd is in daycare and ds is also about to start. I just can't handle them!!! I feel like I'm the only mother like this?!
