Yelling to much...

Mar 15, 2014 - 16 comments

UPDATED 3/17/14

3/15/14  I have 2 kids under two...they are a handful.  I want them to be good kids, not brats.  I guess I have been going overboard, as I was told by  my husband tonight, that I am yelling at them too much.  I guess I knew I was, but was becoming immune to it.  I am with them 99% of the time, 60% of the time alone as my husband works a lot...I don't spank them, or smack them.  I just yell too much!
I used to call the lady across the street yelly mom, before she moved, because she yelled all the time...I do not want to be her!!!!!!! :(

3/17/14 I had a little time to respond to you wonderful ladies :). I do use time out, on Drake, Cami has only gone that far once...lol.  
And I do get on their level and look them in the eye to explain things.  I think I have just been a little stressed lately.  I also spoke to my husband about me feeling like he doesn't do enough to discipline them enough, leaving me to do it all.  We will see if he steps it up a little.  

Thank you for listening!!!!

HELP: Need advice for first vacation plans.

Ok, we are planning our first vacation with the twins for May.  The twins will be 10months old then.  My question is, it will be 7 hours to our destination.  We are planning on Gatlnburg.  I assume it will take longer with the twins, so maybe 8 or 9 hours?  Driving of course.

My question is, we are planning on leaving on Monday.  
Do we come back Thursday or Friday? I am torn.  I don't want the trip to be too long, but I don't want it to be to short either.  If this was before children. We would definitely come back Friday.  I just don't want it to seem like we drive drive drive, only to have to turn around and drive drive drive home (if that makes sense)

We will be renting a cabin, and my in laws will be with us.  We plan on hiking, seeing Cade's cove, and a day in Cherokee NC.

My husband and in laws say Thursday, my friend and I say friday.  

I really need your ladies advice!!!

I cannot believe what changes the last year has brought.  It was 1 year ago today, that my husband and I went once again to our RE's office for yet another transfer.  I remember how surreal it was that day.  Wanting to be hopeful, wanting to believe, but being ever so leary.  We got the pic of our 2 lil beans, and prayed like crazy.  The transfer went perfectly, and we left for home with our 2 lil beans safe and sound in their mommy's tummy.  

Little did we know, but boy we hoped like crazy, that the transfer would bring the best Christmas  presents EVER!!!

We would soon learn that both of our little beans would stick around for the duration, and bless us with being a mommy and a daddy.  

I love these 2 little beans so much!!!  

Wow, what a difference a year can make.
