I was going to write a post about an hour ago, but realized I should cool off a bit. Do some deep breathing and
jug pour a glass of wine. Otherwise my post might be filled with foul language and horrible things about my children. Truthfully, they really aren’t that bad. They have good manners and listen…most of the time. There are just some days where they just CHOOSE not to listen. One thing I can’t stand is having to repeat myself. I hate it. Now reminding them twice to do something is one thing, saying it over and over FIVE times…another.
“Put on your shoes.” x 6 x 3 kids = 18 times.
“Put on your coat.” x 5 x 3 kids = 15 times
“Don’t forget hats!” x 4
“I said no running.” (over 30 times)
“No, you’re not having more cake.” x 4 x 2 kids = 8 times
You get the picture of today’s events? I don’t want to freaking TALK anymore. At all. I’m totally spent. My throat physically hurts from having to talk, speak loudly, and full-out yell. Why do they do this? Let’s drive mom bat-shit-crazy today and not listen until she’s said something 20 times. How long do you think it will take before mom is banging her head against the wall? Let’s just keep asking mom for candy until we drive her so nuts she’ll give in.
It’s one of those days. After tonight’s bedtime lecture, I’m hoping tomorrow is a better day. Otherwise, crazy mom is taking the toy room to the curbside for garbage pickup.
Did you have one of these days?
