I once was shabbos by someone who kept a really clean house.
Her technique was like this:
"Kids, whoever picks up 10 things from the floor gets to take out the garbage!"

Every now and then stop and remind yourself of what your priorities are in life. For me there's a little pep talk I give myself: "The most important thing in my world is my family. I love my children more than anything. Right now, they are loved, they are safe, they are happy, they are cared for, and that's everything they need. That is all that matters. Everything else is temporary. Right here, right now, this is what matters and it's where my priorities lie."

Let go of the cleaning. Anything you clean right now will get dirty again later. Instead go kiss your kids, because that single kiss is eternal. It will be with them forever.

Resentment is so toxic in a family, especially for a parent to feel resentful of their children. You really need to learn to reprogram your mind because kids are perceptive and they'll pick up on any resentment you feel towards them and no child deserves to feel resented by the very people that brought them into this world.

Oh and let go of this idea of not getting your way. You're a mom, you won't be "getting your way" till your kids are grown and gone. Just forget about it. Have little to no expectations and you'll better be able to appreciate the small victories: Today I peed without anyone in the bathroom with me! Today I managed to sneak an entire ice cream bar without my kids noticing and wanting some! Today I got a solid seven hours of sleep! Today I got to take a walk without anyone with me! Etc.
