faithfully4you -- So lovely to hear from you!! I feel we are soul mates - going through the same things at the same time!! Our school term starts on September 3rd - still 2 1/2 weeks left yet!! (I live in England) xx
It's great when they are at school - I'm going to be working part-time from September - I'm a teacher - 5 years old. Such fun!! and such hard work !!
My husband does help out - he can be great at times but at other times I wish he could be in my head, feel the way I feel, then maybe he would understand xx
As for the incident with your son in the store - wow! How old is he? Has he shown any signs like this before? I feel it may just have been exhaustion from a busy day - and a change from being with his father and then being with you. Try not to worry about it please xx
One of my friends told me that kids are very resilient - they bounce back!! I do believe that to a certain extent - but how many bounces can they have before they crash??
I so get what you are saying about making a good home for our kids. We are - we are there for them!! I have had a troubled childhood, physical and mental abuse. I made the decision when I had kids that I would NEVER hit my children - I have kept that promise - I have never hit them (and never will) xx
See - we are doing some good -honestly we are!! You love your kids and so do I - even if some days we feel like screaming at them - most parents do!!
Let's hang on in there - you and me - we will survive this 'depression' - we will!!
Big hugs to you xx Thanks for your lovely messages - they are really helping me xx
