Lately, my two kids (22 months and 3 months) have been driving me mad! They wake me up about 4-6 times a night, leaving me angry, sleep deprived and in many cases, in tears.
My escape...books! Lots and lots of them; no matter how exhausted I am, a book can surely turn my mood around. Lately however, there has been NO TIME and finishing the one at hand seemed to take forever. So, when I was having a really bad day resulting from a long night, I locked myself in the bathroom with my book until I finished the last three chapters.
There I was, 28-years-old, a mother of two and a stepmother of one, behaving like a fugitive from my own kids. I cannot believe I reached that point but I just needed a break and the one place Yousef could not reach me was unfortunately, the restroom.
When exactly do kids start to self-entertain so I don't have to stoop so low :)
