Ouch, My Head Hurts

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results. If that is true then I am a very crazy person because this pretty much describes my entire life. 

Often I find myself having the same conversations with the people I am the closest to. (husband & children)
saying the same things, 
wondering why they didn't listen, 
then "banging my head on a wall."


Do I change my approach? NO
Do I turn right around in the very near future and do it all over again? YUP


"The laundry basket isn't that much further from the floor, pick your clothes up."
"Stop touching each other."
"Leave the dog alone."
"No, you cannot play the Xbox on a school night."
"Rinse your dishes off when you put them in the sink."
"Don't pick your nose."
"I need your help, please help me!"






Sure, sometimes what I say is heard, briefly. Then the sun goes down and BAM! Right back at it. Honestly I believe I should record myself and just leave the recording on a constant loop. Then, I could go on a vacation! Wait forget vacation, that's a bad idea. Have you ever left your significant other home alone with the children? That's job security right there. 

It may sound like I am complaining...








That's because I AM!



Yes, I am blessed beyond words. I know that. 

But there are days when the brick wall gives me a head ache from hitting it so many times. 



Are you suffering from insanity too?

au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...

I hear ya girl, I hear ya! and yes, I think mother's all go through this...in different stages of life..what I have been trying to focus on and keep at the forfront of my mind is, I am training them to someday leave this house. Training them to live responsibly and respectfully with someone else. and when I think this, my perspective changes. I hope that may help a bit...stay on track Lizzie, your doing a wonderful job :)
