Oh the screaming!!! This is the absolute one thing I dislike about being a MoM. My girls feed off each other and when one starts yelling or crying, the other finds a way to chime in. It grates on my last nerve. I have found myself counting and taking deep breaths quite often. I have had to leave the room and I even ended up telling my girls to stop it this morning. I feel like I lose my patience with all of my kids so easily anymore. It just isn't typical of me, but there are moments where I really feel like my head will explode if someone throws one more tantrum or keeps whining. Please tell me that what I feel is normal. I feel awful. I try really hard to focus on all the fun things with the girls. I enjoy all of their new words and the new things they are learning. I try to have fun with them. I just find it all really overwhelming. Sometimes, more overwhelming than the newborn stage. When I have both of them fighting for my lap (and then big brother jumps in the mix) and both are sending board book missiles across the room because they are frustrated, it feels like a danger zone (for all of us) sometimes.
