    Default Anyone else out there over the holidays?

    I have had 2 weeks off work while the kids are on school and daycare holidays. I can't wait to get back to work on Tuesday to get my sanity back. A whingey clingy toddler that has just cut his molars and a defiant nearly 5yr old.
    I honestly don't know how sahm's stay at home with the kids day in and day out without losing their mind. It definately isn't for me that's for sure. God I need the mental stimulation I get at work, I'm going mad!

    I'm 35 weeks pregnant with a 7, 5 and 2 year old. Daycare for the 2 year old went back this week, he goes 2 days, and I'm satisfied with this break.
    Once school goes back all the extra curricular activities start along with a new baby due the first day back at school. I'm actually going to cherish the next 4 weeks at home.

    I wish my hubby was here, he is away at work. He gets back from work on Tuesday, I leave the kids with him and off I go to work then it's his turn at home with them for a week.

    When I stopped working and became a SAHM to a 3 year old it was a huge adjustment! But you get use to it. If you don't know anything else it just feels normal.

    I agree with this - after a while I got used to being at home and, I guess, "good" at it. Don't get me wrong I'm glad I work part time now but I did find after a few months of being a SAHM I developed lots of tricks and ways of managing the kids. And also become good at switching off.

    I'm just over my 2 eldest fighting all the time! With DD1 used to being at school all the time she gets bored easily at home and she and her sister either get along like a house on fire or are at each other's throats - there is no in between.

    Argh, my two are very close in age to your eldest and the fighting! Doing my head in!
