I love my kids but…


We all love our children unconditionally – we love them because they are lovely, funny, and kind and, well, because they are yours! But sometimes (and I know it can’t just be me) don’t you just want to hide away in a small dark space and stuff your face with all their sweets and snacks just to get through the next 10 minutes or do you ever get to the point where you just want to scream “LEAVE ME ALONE AND LET ME POO IN PEACE!” ?

Well I do know I’m not alone because I asked some other lovely bloggers to share their ‘I love my children but …’ moments. To start you off here are a couple of mine…

I love my children but when they wake up and the first word out of their mouth comes out as a whinge, it makes me want to scream.

I love my children but when they don’t listen to a word you say unless it involves a the word biscuit, snack or chocolate, I just want to tell them to do everything else for themselves too.
