So, I've gotten more hits for unhappy moms. Some of you were brave enough to comment on the blog. I have to say, that I got many emails (from friends and strangers) and quite a few phone calls thanking me for the original post. But those few brave souls who commented on the blog (where everyone can see and judge) -- I'm proud of you.
So...here's my new thing. My kids have been driving me NUTS lately. Don't get me wrong...I love my kids, but sometimes -- I tell you, I get so frustrated, so mad...so annoyed that I just want to stand here and scream. Last week -- I literally told my husband that I needed a "time out". I went to get groceries. I was gone for an hour and a half -- with a good 45 minutes of that spent just sitting in my car holding back tears of frustration.
So -- These are a few of the things that my kids have done to right tick me off this week.
* toddler has a fascination with dumping. God forbid I should leave a water bottle or coffee cup within his reach, becuase it will be dumped on the table, into the sugar bowl, or on the floor.
* Daughter is a slob. I have tried teaching her to clean. I have tried breaking things down for her so she can clean one bit at a time. Nothing works. Her room ... it literally makes me shudder. I have given up.
* Middle son - You would hardly know that this child is alive - he's always got his face in that damn Nintendo...he's also developed a potty mouth...boy, am I proud.
* Toddler has a thing with dumping toys from their bins. THis isn't so much a problem, except that he dumps EVERY toy from EVERY bin. Makes me want to scream.
Ugh...I'm sure that there are more -- But I'm tired and need to now go and wake my little angels for a new day...
