I have been quarantined now for a month and a half with 4 children. 3 year old boy,5 year old girl, 7 year old boy with a hyper disorder and a 15 year old teenage girl. I'm with them 24 hours a day.
Their mom's job has not closed as of yet so I'm the one that is home with them. I love them but they drive me insane sometimes. I get up at 5a.m every morning...they wake up with in the following few hours to yell,run and destroy anything that they can get their hands on. They refuse to nap,and if by chance they do wear themselves out to the point to where they do fall asleep,then they are up most of the night,sometimes even into the early morning.
When their mom finally gets home from work,I want to just leave and enjoy the quiet for a bit,but don't have anywhere to go. Even when I do get the chance to run into town and go to the store or something,I'm shadowed by the teenager.
I know that this lockdown isn't fun for any of us,and so I try to get away and be alone for a bit,but then I feel bad because I feel like I'm neglecting time with my children by doing so. So the question I really need an answer to is...... Is it wrong to want a break from my kids at the end of the day?
