So I don't know if it's the age or I'm just running out of gas, but my b/b twins (21 months in 2 days) are driving me off the deep end. They are constantly hitting, head butting, throwing things, ignoring everything I say, destroying books and toys, and crying over the tiniest of things. Where did my super well behaved babies go? What happened? Every day has become a battle. If one starts doing something he shouldn't, the other immediately joins in. They play together finally, but they are also just hitting the "mine" stage so they are fighting constantly too. In the meantime, I'm completely out of gas. We have no family near us and most of my friends either work or live a long distance away. I never get a break....EVER. I think in 21 months, I've had 1/2 a day off. I just don't have the energy to do this anymore. I find my patience gone to the point where I can't even stand being in the same room with them sometimes. I feel like the worst mom ever to post that publicly but that's where I'm at. My husband is a great help but he doesn't get it because he doesn't have to spend the amount of time with them I do. He loses patience with their antics after a few minutes of it but yet doesn't seem to realize I'm only hanging on by a thread after dealing with days and days and days of this. I don't know what to do. I'm super picky about how I raise my kids and I gave up a great job that I'll never get back just to be home with them so I can't justify putting them into a school program but I am seriously about to lose it. What do I do? How do I get through this? How do I get back to feeling like I'm in control, I'm doing the right things for my kids and that I'm not about to completely lose my temper with them every second?
