My children woke up today at 6am because we ordered pavers and wood for our new deck and patio and that's when they delivered them. So the beeping truck and all the commotion woke them up. My husband put them back to bed but how can they sleep when my mother is putting away their laundry because I was so exhausted last night I didn't do it. Then she comes in my room to put my husbands laundry away. So finally I gave up any hope of sleep and fed the kids breakfast. My 3 year old constantly asks Nana to feed her even though she is quite capable of doing it herself. I told her to stop, to eat like a big girl and my mom chimes in "she just wants someone's attention. You're feeding DS his yogurt." Um yeah. He's 16 months old and I don't feel like scraping blueberry yogurt off the ceiling.
Then we go and start watching a movie and my mother is banging and makother lots of noise in her room (yep. She lives with us... Still) so of course the kids want to go in there and jump on her bed which I do not allow them to do. Finally I said enough. Off with the movie that I ended up watching by myself and hauled kids up to bed for naps. DD wanted to wear a princess dress to nap. I told her no. Those were for play time not nap time. My mom comes up with apparently more laundry and what do you know? SHe lets DD wear a princess dress to bed. I was in the bathroom and saw that am I'm just about ready to pack my crap and leave. Im always struggling with my husband and my mother and my in laws doing whatever the hell they want. It means the kids never listen or respect me and frankly it's a bunch of bull. If they think thy can do a better job. Fine. I'll go back to work an make my own money again and actually have someone tell me I'm doing a good job because frankly I haven't heard that in about 3 years.
