    My twins were only 11 months older than my baby. How crazy is that there was the time that they ( 10-11ish) kept bouncing the ball in the living room, this was after the youngest had bounced one that hit the light fixture breaking the glass which landed in his arm and he had to have stitches. Okay back to the day mommy went mad, they had been told I don't know how many times to stop bouncing that ball before. I calmly walked in with the knife I had been cutting onions up with in the kitchen grabbed their ball and cut it in the middle, handed it back to them and said "guess you won't bounce tha ball anymore." Then walked back in the kitchen and started on my onion again.:angryfire I am nonviolent except when it comes to balls deb
    Hi Deb,

    Don't hide under the chair Deb...my kids drove me nuts with their daily arguing over the swing in our yard...so one day I sawed the branch off the tree. They never argued over the swing again.

    Deb and Kids-R-Fun:

    I like your tactics. They both made me laugh. My 3 kids drive me crazy at times too; and seems like its at the WORST possible times. I read somewhere though that if we didn't have bad days, we wouldn't be able to recognize when we have a good one. lol

    P.S. I forgot, the cat drives me crazy too; especially when I'm trying to type posts.

    Its OK! Really! I remember things like that as a young kid, and I ended up forgetting about it in a few hours.

    OH! I am NOT the only MEAN mother. I have done that with the ball!!!!!! I haven't sawed any trees, but I have been darned tempted to do so.

    One more fight and the ninteno controller goes down the toilet......!

    Oh Boy, After being the first to reply here and talk about something I have to laugh at now, we had a wonderful blow out with our 13 year old daughter last night. She cried for hours, and my husband walked out so as not to kill her, but not before pretty much grounding her for life!!

    I try to tell him that she's in the throws of hormones and we have to choose our battles - but, he just doesn't get it. I won't even get into what the fight started about, but by the time it escalated, it didn't matter - things got ugly.

    Oh well, I'm glad to see I'm not alone (I hope) and hopefully, someday I'll laugh about this one too.

    Mommy guilt, there's nothing quite like it is there? It's okay! Your kids will adore you regardless and I am sure you will make it a point to be more patient in the future. Don't let it get you too down

    OMG thanks so I am not the only mom that goes absolutley insane
    I have dreesed my 12 year old when he was poking to slow as he screamed I can do it
    I have threaten to send them to school in Jammies
    I also make them do stupid hard labor like one day I made my son move boxes in the basement the the next time he go into trouble I made him move them all back upstairs
    my daughter has had to take everything out of the cabinet to clean them
    I have also done things like hid the n64,the game boy,when they really get on my nerves by fighting or being way to loud I put opera on the radio as loud as I can then they actually shut up or leave the room
