It has been a roller coaster of feelings here in Cadie’s corner of the world. (See what I did there?) These kids are driving me crazy.
I knew that it would get overwhelming for all of us, and I knew we would all get sick of each other, but it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. Yes, there is a lot of frustration, screaming, yelling, fighting and annoyance. These boys fight like cats and dogs. I cannot tell you how many fights I have to break up in a day, I get tired of hearing my own voice.
I’ve been able to take them to their grandmother’s house to play in her backyard, just to get their energy out. I’m not ready to take them to the playground just yet, even though they are now open here in the Oklahoma City area. A lot of businesses are opening back up and places where large groups are being used again. We’re taking the ‘wait and see’ approach. I would love to take my kids out and do more stuff with them but I just want to be careful.
As all parents know, you survive extended time with your children because you just have to do it. I the end I know I’ll look back on this time and miss it. It’s frustrating now but there are bigger problems going on and my kids are safe and healthy. That’s all I can ask for. Just keep your heads up, parents. We’re all in this together.
