Does Your Kids Make You Wanna Tantrum?January 15, 2014 - Author: Mango
Usually you hear about theses dotting moms who think the world of their children, and dare not to express there frustration, and are always excusing their “childhood-ism”. But me, I’ve always been a “matter of fact” type of person and a mother. Let me explain. If my kid comes downstairs to find me after running into th treadmill, as she did this evening actually, to tell me she has a small scrape, and complains about it hurting…I’ll ask her “Are you bleeding?” If the answer is “NO”, then I’ll give them the side eye, and go about my business.If they pass the three questions, then I’m not worried, like:1) Are you on fire? 2) Are you bleeding? 3) Are you near death? If those are “NO” then my reaction is not to kiss the “boo boo” until they feel better, or ask them countless times “Are you alright?” Logically because you can’t build strong “future adults” if their weak as kids.
My oldest Step daughter, who I do consider my very own, but the point I need to make is I didn’t raise her, lol.
She doesn’t know how to boil water. As most bachelors, her best dish is a pack of Ramen noodles. Sad right?!All she knows how to do is bounce a basketball up and down a court and demand her mother around. I could never get away with that and I would never except that hogwash from my kids. Those 9mo were torture, and I don’t play around.
Today, I felt all productive. I went to do some community service, went to the drug store to reup on my feminine items…if you know what I mean, and I needed to get some jugs of water, and some salt for my icy driveway, something you don’t have to worry about if it’s sunny where you are. I came home rented a movie, enjoyed some cheese, crackers and yummy genoa salami, and a well deserved nap, since I cleaned like it was join’ out of style yesterday. I could bang on my chest, i felt accomplished. I also went grocery shopping yesterday and I really didn’t have to plan dinner tonight because the Hubs is working late tonight.
It’s nothing like an 8yr old that can knock you down a couple of pegs. I’ve been teaching Erinn for some months about helping with cleaning and cleaning up after herself. But she ALWAYS gets off of track. I used to didn’t believe in ADD/ADHD, but after i meet my own daughter, I take it back. Well mainly because my BIL is ADHD to the 12th power, no lie, and so is the Hubs (diagnosed), so I guess I expect it…sometimes….as long as I don’t have to have my well thought out plan demolished.
So apart of Tuesday’s chores, Dani was supposed to unload and load the dishwasher…Which took about an hour. So to my unpleasant surprise, there are my very labor intensive retrieved water jugs, that seems to be wet….
Hmmmm….”do they have a leak, because I did have to exchange on at the store that had the leak, so did I switch out the wrong one?” No, it’s Erinn…who filled up my PURCHASED PURIFIED water jugs, filled with tap water……Need I Say More?!!!!:(
