As all of you know who read my blog, we have very little sleep in this house and as a result tempers are easily frayed!
I can almost feel the rage bubble up in side me when Daddy Pig tells me he is tired! I guess getting up to fetch Dennis and then going back to sleep must be hard, or getting up early after I have done the night shift must be exhausting.
Hmm, well try this for size Daddy Pig and then tell me about being tired. Once you go back to sleep, spare a thought for me sitting there breastfeeding Dennis until he goes back to sleep 50 minutes later several times a night!
Or perhaps when he is up for two hours at a time and when I tell you, you say I should have woken you. When I do you tend to be grumpy and just say: "What?"
Don't even get me started on the house work debate! I can see why you think I sit on my arse all day because the house looks like a bomb has gone off. But if you had to look after the devil children all day you would understand why.
Yes, I can't put washing on or sometimes even pick up a nappy and it's not because I am lazy, it's because I get disturbed my Damien who takes any opportunity to cause havoc.
My house is a constant state and I often look longingly at people's clean and tidy houses and wonder if that will ever be achievable?
My short temper doesn't even stop with Daddy Pig, Nannie Plum quite often gets it in the neck too. "Any plans today? Or "oh aren't you seeing your friends?" gets me every time. I am allowed to have the odd day where I am so physically exhausted that I just want to veg out all day!
In fairness to Daddy Pig he does help in other ways but when you are tired it's easy to take it out on one another. After ten years together we know what buttons to press and therefore instead of building up to an argument we go nuclear instantly. At least it gets it over and done with quicker.
Now come and share what has annoyed you this week. http://familyfourfun.blogspot.ie/2012/08/mothers-with-attitude_29.html
