Yes, my daughter just turned 11, she’s not getting any better 😉  I’m expecting it to get worse as the teen years get closer and closer…. It’s worse around xmas, just the excitement of the activities, events and excitement of presents.

Yep. Oh yes. I would be lying if I saiid that I did not go to bed last night while saying “Yes! Done. Done Done. It’s done!!!” My head.

Love how happy Christmas makes the kids, but I kind of hate the holiday at the same time. I started a thread about it earlier in the month haha.

@Gabthebee:  I have 3 cousins & a niece & nephew, ages 6 & under. The 6 y/o cousin is a complete terror and when he’s around for the holidays he gets the other kids (who are normally decently behaved) acting pretty badly. He’s mean with his words, really rough & all around very unenjoyable to be with. When its just the 4 kids (and not the 6 y/o terror) things aren’t so bad (like at other family events throughout the year) but this little stinker is tough to be around. I’ve also noticed that getting the kids out of the normal routine & keeping them extra busy makes for some challenging days/evenings. You are not alone! =)
