    When I get stressed and flustered and instead of talking to and Discipling my children properly I argue with them and try to guilt trip them! Pathetic!

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

    Yeah I'm seriously coming to that conclusion. But everyone says not to drop naps with a baby on the way. Will play it by ear and see how we go.

    I am SUCH a lazy cook these days. No nutella sandwiches (DD hates nutella), but it's often, "sausages and salad," because it's one of the few things that doesn't require much effort and doesn't get whinged about. Well, it does... DP will often go, "What are IN these sausage?" and refuse to eat them based on the fact that they taste "funny," because they have something in them (even something basic like herbs... lol). But it's still less likely to be a fail than anything else.

    When I get ****ed so I can smile through Christmas, whinge about the kids being hyper 'cos they've eaten the lollies I let them eat, then take the tree and all the decorations down at 6pm on Christmas Day because I just want it to be over.
    (My Mother passed away a fortnight ago and it's just $h!t without her).
