Feel like yelling at your child? Yell at this thread instead! - Page 52post #1021 of 10592/3/13 at 8:04ampost #1022 of 10592/3/13 at 8:26ampost #1023 of 10592/3/13 at 8:26ampost #1024 of 10592/6/13 at 12:09ampost #1025 of 10592/14/13 at 8:18ampost #1026 of 10592/14/13 at 12:34pmOh wow! 8 years!! Impressive!
I'm about to go ape on lil miss so I'll vent here instead:
Water is a LIQUID. If you don't let mommy put the top on properly before you snatch your sippy away, water WILL pour out and get you ALL WET! You can use it open or closed properly but not any way between. No, I can't change the laws of physics, not even for you!
If you refuse to wear your mittens, your hands will get cold. All the screaming in the world won't change that. See above regarding laws of physics.
I can't help and NOT help simultaneously. MAKE UP YOUR FREAKING MIND!!!!!!
GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF MY SHIRT! You can nurse anytime you want to, you just need to ask. I'm NOT a skanky ho though so you DON'T get to feel me up just for the hell of it!!
If you want to come to gramma's house, you need to get in the carseat. No, we're not walking. She lives 40km away, that's why!!
YES, I KNOW THAT'S MOMMY'S SHOE! IT WAS MOMMY'S FREAKIN' SHOE FIVE SECONDS AGO AND FIVE SECONDS BEFORE THAT!!! Thank you for the breaking news. Now PLEASE just BE QUIET for 10 seconds straight!!!!!
Ok... That at least scratches the surface. Urge to kill fading..fading... RISING!!.... fading..... Lolpost #1027 of 10593/13/13 at 11:28am
Shut up. just shut up and leave me alone. i was getting a little frustrated with the puzzle, doing it for the 100th time after already doing it 600 times with your sister this morning, so i said i was going to walk away for ONE MINUTE because I needed to calm down. but no. one minute was entirely intolerable, apparently. if your screaming wakes up your sister, i'm going to go crazy. she hasn't napped all day. why can't you let me be for ONE MINUTE!? now i could really do with 1 hour. your screaming and following me around does not help me calm down in the least. get lost. this is the only time a get some sort of down time all freakin day long, but i was trying to sit there with you because you said you wanted some attention. but when you just start fidgeting and stuffing puzzle pieces up your pant leg, then insisting that i do the puzzle it's not very fun for me. all i wanted was one minute so that i wouldn't yell at you, and look where that got us. i yelled anyway. now i feel like crap.

You are 5 1/2...stop having a temper tantrum every time your little sister plays with a toy because you decide right then and there that you want it to!!!! You already got first choice for Barbies and brought out 10 of them for yourself. You do NOT need your sister's toy...she wasn't even bothering you...she was just playing nicely by herself!post #1032 of 10594/9/13 at 8:31am
YOU! - Let me finish answering your first question before you move on to the next! WHY DO YOU ASK ME A QUESTION IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR THE ANSWER??!!?? PLEASE stop asking me a question every minute of every day. Especially the ones I already know for a fact you have the answers to. AND STOP TATTLING ON YOUR SISTERS!!!!! You do not have to update me every minute I am in the bathroom with what your sisters are doing wrong. I DON'T CARE! LEAVE ME THE CRAP ALONE FOR FIVE MINUTES!
YOU! - STOP SAYING I HATE YOU! I'm done being gentle on this. If you tell your little sister you hate her one more time I am going to fly off the handle. You think that was flying off the handle this morning? Just wait, say it one more time, I dare you...... It's time for you to start picking up the communal areas with big sister. No, your legs don't hurt, no, you are not tired, you're being a brat, get off your rear and pick up these toys you helped drag out or I AM THROWING THEM IN THE TRASH. NOT. JOKING.
YOU! - STOP BEING A LITTLE PRAT TO YOUR BIG SISTERS!!!!! I know you have speech issues, I KNOW it's hard for you to understand, but you know the word NO and you understand when I've told you to not do something. I am finished with you testing your boundaries. STOP CLIMBING ON ALL OF US!!!!! No! I am not a jungle gym!!!! Your sisters do not appreciate you laying on them! STOP IT!!
YOU! - YES, YOU! STUPID LADY! STOP GETTING ANGRY AT YOUR KIDS FOR DOING NORMAL KID STUFF!!!!!!!!!! STOP YELLING! They feed off you and it makes it 10 times worse!! If it gets to be too much then send them all to their rooms, better that than having a meltdown yourself. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS. I'm tired of feeling guilty afterwards for yelling at them.
You, little one, stay awesome, because right now you are the only one reminding me why I love having kids.post #1033 of 10594/10/13 at 5:26pmpost #1034 of 10594/11/13 at 6:21pm
If I have to sit that bear up at the end of your bed ONE MORE TIME at bedtimes - I'm going to take him outside and chainsaw him to death!!
Don't laugh at your mummy when she's losing her mind - please...just don't laugh...it's NOT FUNNY! (gibberish...gibberish...ranty...gibberish...slobber...)
Thanks for turning me into a walking zombie - my insomnia isn't entirely your fault I know...oh WTH........it IS, is TOTALLY IS!
Could we just have one day when we're not all about the feisty, temperamental, loud, crazy, unpredictable, smart-alecky - ness. Can we make, say, Wednesdays, the day we have: calm, peace, loving cuddles, gentle touching and interesting conversations. Yup.
When you want to cuddle or kiss me, you turn from child into velcro - usually at the most inconvenient times (by design I'm sure!) - when I want to cuddle or kiss you...I usually get a palm hurtling at my nose, or a firm poke in the eye. Thanks kid.
(Who could write ten times this - but only has five minutes to blow off steam online because it looks like you've decided to take a short nap today! Oh joy. Crazy small person you. Ahem.)post #1035 of 10594/12/13 at 7:52pmpost #1036 of 10594/13/13 at 2:32pmQuote:

Yes! It took me about 10x longer than it took him to do it, but I did figure it out. Glad I don't have to live with it. My neck was getting sore. ; )post #1038 of 10594/13/13 at 9:03pmpost #1039 of 10595/15/13 at 11:16am
