I'm a SAHM. Though every time I do anything that is not directly involving them, even if it's cooking, watching a tv show for five minutes cause it caught my eye for a minute, looking at a magazine, anything at all, they start yelling, talking much much louder, running around like crazy, get up in my face, like right on my face lol, shove things in my face, do things they know they are not allowed to do. Just be plain bad lol.
They are not like this. They are usually well behaved. I know they are not attention starved. We do all kinds of things all day, every day together and I spend almost all my time exclusively with them, so why do they do this? how can I get it to stop?

How old are they? Maybe they are just bored?

Kids do that when you spend ti much time with them. You should set a side individual play time for them so they get use to entertaining themselves. Being to involved can be just as bad as not being involved enough. You need to find balance.
