I just need to vent. It seems that everyone assumes that because I have twins that I must be in over my head stressed out all of the time and in need of constant help. Perhaps I'm just PMS ing, because I don't mean to sound ungrateful for all of the help we get, but I'm tired of people coming to my house, staying for weeks at a time and "helping" me. I really do have this. Granted, my house isn't always super clean, but my babies are well cared for and happy. At 6 months, taking care of the boys is really enjoyable, even when DH is out of town for 10 days straight. I have a mother's helper 15 hours a week, my boys finally STTN (so I'm not sleep deprived) and they are generally happy with our daily routine. Yet every time DH goes out of town for long periods, HIS family books trips out here to stay with me and the boys. It's exhausting dealing with house guests all day long who are constantly asking me what they can do to help. I miss my privacy and the little "me time" I now get after the boys go to bed. MIL has been here for 2 weeks, 10 of those days DH was out of town. I just want my house and my routine back. Thanks for reading this.
