Long story short. When the DGC (3 of, 1 from DD1 and 2 from DD2) are all round at the same time their behaviour is awful. They don't listen to anyone and I feel like Bad Granny as I have to put sanctions into place
I am, for the first time ever, dreading Christmas Day as it will just be expense and hard work. I suspect I will spend much of the day in the kitchen with the dogs and several glasses of wine. I've even said they can't all come on the same day due to behaviour but all they do then is cry. They are young 6 and 5 and as cousins spend lots of time together (3 year old only copies but even that contributes to the mayhem). Apart they give me so much joy but together their behaviour has me at my wits end. Unfortunately their care needs mean I frequently have them all together and also when my DDs visit at the same time - and actually that is when the noise and ignoring is at its worst.
I am overwhelmed and in tears after a few hours of it today even though I have played games to entertain them.
