    Default I'm stepping on my kids

    Please tell me I'm not the only one with five star cling-ons for children. I can't take a step without stepping on them. They are always right. there. I have one clinging on my leg as I type this. I need that alarm that tells you you're going to hit something when you back up. There are only two of them! How come it feels like a herd of cattle?

    Oh! I had this same “discussion“ with my 2 yesterday! I walked over to unplug something and they both came with me!!! I turned around and tripped over both of them!

    I feel your pain. I would love one of those beepers too... however I'm thinking of investing in a HUGE BUBBLE instead!

    My best guess is my 2 year old is trying to find a way back into the womb. This boy is as near to me as he can get 24/7. Even in his sleep! I woke up this morning to him sleeping beside me rubbing my belly. sigh. Taking a step, I'm bound to have to move him out of the way. I'm not sure how he manages it but he is always in front of me or hanging from my arm or leg.

    There are a lot of times I turn around and bump into DD1 because she's right beside me, or she's walking around my legs in circles while holding onto my legs...drives me nuts. Often times I can't even sit down without her sitting between my feet or on my feet.

    I have told DH sooo many times that I just wish I had some time where no one was touching me! It feels like I have someone on me all.the.time.

    Is it something in the air recently?? I did have nice independent children that I had to ask to play with most the time. Who would always want to do it all by theirself. The last wek I havnt been able to do anything myself. I feel like Im loosing my mind.
    ...and in that moment I swear we were infinite.

    Everytime DD1 wants something, she stands in the way of me getting it for her. It's annoying. One day, one day she will clue in. Cause explaining it isn't working so far.

    Sometimes I wanna turn on an electric fence around me. Stay back 2 feet or get zapped!
    Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

    always have kids under foot here. I swear they anticipate where I am going next and try to get there before me.
    If my phone rings, I am tripping over three, 3 year olds to answer it... gah.

    Same thing around here. I can't even pee alone. If I am gone for 2 secs they find me. If they cant' see me they start yelling for me. Seriously do they think I'm running away!? Althougth the thought has crossed my mind

    Both of mine are always all over me. It's so hard/frustrating sometimes (like this morning). I went to take a quick phone call quietly in another room - within seconds they are both there yelling and banging on the door.

    OMG, mine are the same. The older one's head is right at my elbow level and he gets bonked on the head several times a day. He follows me around and just never stops talking and asking me questions. I try to do too many things at once and forget where he is and BAM. Poor kid.

    I remember my Dad complaining for years that I was always “under his feet“. Now I know exactly what he was talking about!
