Argh

Why does is seem like I have to yell at my kids so much more when I don't have a voice to yell? I've got a crummy cold that Alex was so nice to share with me and my voice is barely hanging in there. And maybe it's because I'm less patient because I'm sick, and maybe it's because it's been too cold to go do anything, but I feel like I've done nothing but attempt to yell at my kids. It really is a pathetic attempt because not much comes out. So then I resort to dragging them to their rooms and other such things that don't involve a voice. Anyone want to rent a couple of kids for the winter?

Hang in there! Find an indoor gym or a playgroup or something for them to destroy besides your home...

Rent a couple of kids? No, but swap a couple maybe. . . Do you want a seven year old and a nine year old?

Wow - there must be something in the air. I asked Steve if I could please go to work full time to get a break from my offspring. ARGH is right! How will we survive the fighting, whining, breaking, chaos? Ya - I better not rent yours out at this time. Thanks for the offer.

Rent!?! To anyone who's interested I've got an angst ridden 18 year old and a becoming mouthy 12 year old I'll give GIVE away. Better enjoy yours before they become like mine.
