I Love My Kids But They Drive Me Nuts!

I want to be a perfect mom. I want to have infinite patience to handle all the ups and downs the day throws at me. But even though I try to exercise immense levels of self-control and not let their tantrums or insistent requests for snacks, hugs, or playing with them annoy me, they still drive me nuts! Sometimes I just need a few moments to pee or take a shower in peace. Just a few… I’m not talking the entire day off!
