Over it.

Although life is fantastic and we are incredibly blessed with our 3 boys, 2 of them are giving us a run for our money. This is, by far, is the hardest stage, in my opinion, raising twins. They are constantly wrestling, running, smashing into furniture, climbing the walls, jumping on the beds…it’s like they have this new found energy and have all of the sudden started the dreaded terrible 3’s. Now don’t get me wrong, they are still sweet and caring and lovable, but boy do they have strong opinions these days. They are testing every boundary, crossing every line set forth in front of them, and smirking along the way. And I feel horrible because I seem to get frustrated so easily, but it is so hard when you have TWO 3 year olds constantly testing your patience. They feed off of each other with everything! It is a battle getting dressed, taking a bath, eating dinner, brushing teeth, going to bed…..uugghhh!!! I pride myself on being even keeled with my kiddos and it kills me that I have such short patience these days. It breaks my heart into a million pieces…I am in no way na├»ve and I have been warned about kids turning 3, but sheesh! I guess I can just be thankful that we don’t have triplets…………….ha! (Feel better now that I got that off of my chest!!)

I completely feel your pain! I had one of those super hard days today with the boys..very hard, no patience, I yelled too much, it was not fun for any of us...I am looking forward to preschool tomorrow (they go to traditional preschool, 3x/week right now) for us to calm down. most definately feed off of each other. drives me nuts. you are not alone....for sure you are not....
