My hormones are making everyone unbearable
I’m only at 25 weeks at this point, but everyone and everything is getting to me. I’m either angry or upset all day long and I can tell it’s starting to effect both of my kids. I don’t have the energy or the will to sit and play with my 4 year old and my 1 year old is driving me crazy with needing to be on top of me constantly. I never get a break from either of them during the week because my BF is staying at his aunts house to work since he wrecked our car over a mont ago. Me and the kids only see him on weekends and since this has started my SD the 4 year old has been an absolute terror during the week. I know it’s just because I’m having trouble playing and giving attention when needed and also because she misses her dad, but her attitude and behavior is awful. She hits and pulls and yells at her little sister if she does anything. She’s recently started screaming at me when I don’t give her what she wants right away. Don’t get me wrong I find time through out the day to sit down and spend time with her it’s just not for as long as her dad does on the weekends. When he’s home he spends stupid amounts of money on toys and movies for her because he feels bad for not being here. She basically has had Christmas every weekend for the last month. He thinks I’m being mean or gets defensive if I say anything about the amount he spends and the amount of stuff he gets for her that she’ll only touch maybe twice. I don’t know if it’s because I’m pregnant or if it’s because I’m the only one parenting the kids but I’m frustrated and angry all the time. I’m really just venting because I have zero adult interaction during the week so I never get to relieve stress by talking to someone about it.
