Before you have kids you might say I'm tired, I'm bored, I need a break.
This may well be true but my god once kids arrive these statements go up to a whole other level!
I'm tired - You have no idea. Caffeine and the fact you have a little people to look after is all that is getting you through the day. Is it bedtime yet?
I'm bored - Having a baby/young child can be profoundly boring. It's ok you can admit it. They sleep, eat, can't talk. As they get older it's all Biff, Chip & Kipper books (shoot me now!) and soft play hell. It's boring. Even when they get older boredom can set in. Ever fancied being stuck in traffic daily on school runs, watching your 100th swimming lesson and 1000th episode of some good awful cartoon. Fun isn't it. Good job we love our kids.
I need a break - After days/weeks/months of a little person attached to you yes you need a break! Remember that you can pass the child to their dad/mum/family/friend etc and chill the hell out! It's allowed just remember to relax and not check your phone 50 million times.
On that note I'm tired. Is it bedtime yet?
