Feel like yelling at your child? Yell at this thread instead! - Page 38

post #741 of 1059
To DH.... Its probably a good thing that I was too ill to realise yesterday was our anniversary, otherwise you not coming home till 830pm would have SERIOUSLY ticked me off. However, when I tell you that I've been sick and if I'm feeling worse the next day I'd make myself an appointment and he would have to come home and sit with the kids while I was there.... DON'T YOU DARE act like I'm a freaking inconvenience. Obviously you are married to the Army and I'm nothing more than a housemate who bears your children. I'M YOUR DAMN WIFE AND YOU WANTED THESE GIRLS TOO!!! In 5 years these soldiers that you are so gung-ho to break your back for AREN'T GOING TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE!!! However.... at the rate you're going, the girls and I may not be here in 5 years either!

You asked me once if things were more important to me than people (I had a severe retail-therapy problem while he was deployed).... well here's my question... is money more important to you than your family? You have us saving ourself into the daily poor house so we can retire.... TWENTY FREAKING YEARS FROM NOW AFTER YOU RETIRE FROM YOUR TEACHING JOB THAT YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE YET BECAUSE YOU STILL HAVE 5 MONTHS BEFORE YOU CAN RETIRE FROM THE ARMY, however we both know you'll stay longer than 20!!! Seriously dear, it is more than apparent that you love your job more than me... not to say you don't love me, but I am obviously not at the top of your list.

On my Christmas gift list I asked for a commitment from you to be home before dinner ONE WORKNIGHT A WEEK and you start laughing and telling me how that isn't possible and blah blah blah. Do you not realise that I don't have to take this? That I can choose to leave and create a life of my own. Yes it would be hard because I now have 5 children... but you know what, it can't be any harder than it is right now.

UGH my head hurts so bad right now that I can't even finish this rant without wanting to scream more!

STOP TWIDDLING MY OTHER NIPPLE WHEN YOU NURSE!! I'm sick and tired of having to fight you off the entire time you are getting bow-boos. KNOCK IT OFF! I can't stand you trying to twiddle twiddle twiddle all the time. This is why Mommy's feet hurt. I CAN'T SIT DOWN ANYMORE! I swear, I am going to be the first woman in history to chew my own boob off to escape!

To Ds2 (6mo): I know you're teething, just started solids so maybe having a tummy ache or something but do you HAVE to wake up ervery hour on the hour ALL night long??? And then what did you need me to do for you? You didn't want to nurse, didn't want to be rocked, didn;t want to be burped, didn't....! UGH. I'm soooooooo tired.

Ds1 (3.5y): OMG! STOP KICKING MY COMFORTOR OFF! IF MY COZY NEST IS NOT THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE FOR YOU SLEEP IN YOUR OWN BED!!! DON'T COME CRAWLING INTO MY BED AT 3AM AND WANT TO DESTROY MY COOCOON. OR SLEEP ON THE FLOOR. I HAVEN'T SLEPT BECAUSE OF YOUR BROTHER ANYWAY AND I DON'T WANT MY 12 MINS OF SLEEP INTERRUPTED BY YOU. THE BABY DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THINGS but can I sometimes expect you to?

Bleh :yawning

Oh my goddess YES!!!!! A thousand times yes. No matter how hard you twist it, you're not going to dial up Radio Free Europe! And stop crumpling up your face into Tragedy Mask and weeping like I've just taken away all the joy in the world when I take your nipple-twisting hand away. You're still getting num-nums, so what's the problem?

FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME STOP REACHING UP AND GRABBING THINGS OFF OF THE COUNTERS AND THE TABLE!!!! THE TOP OF THE TALL BOOKCASE IS ONLY 1x2 ft!!! I CAN NOT FIT ALL OF THE KNIVES, DISHES, SCISSORS, GLASSES, IMPORTANT PAPERS, PENS, CRAYONS, VITAMINS, etc. UP THERE!!!

PLEASE DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT THINGS OUT OF CONTEXT TODAY. I AM TIRED OF GUESSING WHY THE VACUUM CLEANER IS DISTRESSING YOU WHILE I AM IN TRAFFIC ON ICY ROADS.

Edited for Oops one more... and a typo

MAKE UP YOUR FRICKIN' MIND and QUIT CHANGING YOUR MIND. PICK ONE OR THE OTHER AND THAT IS THAT!!! UGH!!! I CAN'T GUESS WHICH ONE YOU WANT AND IF I TRY IT IS NEVER THE ONE YOU DON'T WANT. PLEASE STOP THIS, please.

Okay, that is better.

this was very funny

The same to my 3.5 year old! STOP GRABBING EVERY DAMN THING THAT YOU CAN THINK OF THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE A LITTLE BIT DANGEROUS! THERE ARE NO MORE SCISSORS TO BE FOUND IN THIS HOUSE BECAUSE WE KEEP HIDING THEM FROM YOU! AND THAT IS NOT A REAL LIFE GUN, THAT IS A LIGHTER, FOR CANDLES! AND DON'T TOUCH IT! AND THAT IS NOT A REAL LIFE SWORD, IT'S A KNIFE! FOR FOOD! AND PUT IT BACK! NOW!

Okay, this is the first time I've tried this:

PLEASE STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING THAT WE DO, EVERY THING WE EAT, AND EVERY PLACE THAT WE GO OR DON'T GO TO. NO, YOU MAY NOT HAVE EVERYTHING YOU SEE IN THE STORE. YOU KNOW THIS, WHY DO YOU KEEP ASKING ME TO BUY YOU EVERYTHING WHEN YOU KNOW THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!! PLEASE STOP QUESTIONING AND NITPICKING EVERY SINGLE DECISION I MAKE, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I DO HAVE THINGS UNDER CONTROL. THANK YOU.

Whew! Actually, it was good to get that off my chest.

And btw, my dd was a "twiddler" as well. I never could break her of it and she still twiddles her own nip for comfort when she's really tired *shrug*

This is such a wonderful thread.

STOP CRYING AT MEAL TIMES.
STOP JUMPING ON THE BED.
STOP ASKING ME TO WASH YOUR HAND AND YOUR TRAY WHILE YOU'RE EATING.

Dear DS,

Please STOP FREAKING OUT. It is now 4:30 in the FREAKING morning. You have been screaming and yelling and crying to nurse for an HOUR now. 3:30 in the morning is not a civilized time of day to wake up. We have not nursed at night for nearly a year now and I am TIRED. Mama needs to go to work in a few hours, and you need to go to school.

I get that you are completely freaked out, and I have tried to snuggle with you, give you water, talk to you, hold you, and tried everything I could possibly think of to calm you down, but we are not going to un-night-wean. I am sorry. The Nay-Nay's are tapped out at night and we will nurse in the morning. I swear on your very life, we will nurse in about an hour when it is time to wake up. Right now, though, I desperately need some sleep. I cannot sleep while you nurse, and I need some sleep.

Please stop freaking out, sweet boy, please. I am going to go back upstairs now to try to snuggle you again and if you start hitting me again, I am going to leave and come back down here again. Please stop.....

i LOVE how so many of you moms say "please" when you're yelling on this thread.

PLEASE STOP WHINING. IT'S NIGHTTIME, WE NEED TO BE RESPECTFUL AND LET EVERYONE SLEEP. DADDY HAS TO GET UP VERY EARLY, AND YOUR BABY BROTHER WILL WAKE UP SOON IF YOU DON'T BE QUIET. PLEASE, PLEASE (and here i feel like i'm begging) PLEASE GET MY ATTENTION BY CALLING ME MOMMOM AND JUST TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT!!! CRYING DOESN'T LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, JUST THAT YOU WANT SOMETHING!!!!

and later on...

PLEASE, DON'T TOUCH MY COMPUTER. JUST DON'T TOUCH IT. I'M ONLY ON FOR TWO MINUTES, AND THEN WE'RE PLAYING AGAIN. JUST LET ME PAY MY BILLS, TWO MINUTES. PLEASE DON'T TOUCH IT. I ASKED YOU NOT TO TOUCH IT NICELY, I TOLD YOU NOT TO TOUCH IT NICELY, AND NOW I WANT TO CUT OFF YOUR PRETTY LITTLE HANDS. I LOVE YOU AND I DON'T WANT YOU TOUCH MY FREAKING COMPUTER!!!!

and later on...

PLEASE, PLEASE KEEP YOUR BODY OFF YOUR BROTHER'S BODY. I DON'T KNOW HOW ELSE TO TELL YOU--DON'T LEAN ON YOUR BROTHER, KEEP YOUR WEIGHT OFF HIM, LEAVE HIM BE WHEN HE'S SLEEPING, GENTLE KISSES, PLEASE, GET THE F*^# OFF HIM!!! HE CAN ONLY HANDLE SO MUCH WEIGHT, AND I DON'T KNOW HOW ELSE TO TELL YOU!!! I KNOW YOU LOVE HIM, HE LOVES YOU, TOO. JUST STAY OFF OF HIM BEFORE I RIP YOU OFF AND THROW YOU ACROSS THE ROOM AND THEN SIT ON YOU SO THAT YOU CAN FEEL WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE SOMEONE HEAVY ON YOU, ELBOWS IN YOUR RIBS, FINGERS IN YOUR EYEBALLS AND EARS AND ALL. JUST DON'T LEAN ON HIM. JUST GIVE HIM HIS SPACE!!! GO SIT IN THE CORNER, I LOVE YOU, GO SIT IN THE CORNER!!!!!


thank you.

I love this thread!!!!!

Dd2--why the heck are you having a tantrum? Just because i wont give you a chocolate ornament off of the tree? Its an hour past your freaking bed time!

Why are you so attached to this one stupid sippie cup!?!?!?! It leaks all over the freaking place.

Why dear god why do you insist on scccccccreaaaaaaaaaminnnnnnnnnnngggggggg on the top of your freaking lungs while mommy is driving!!?!?!?!?! Dont you realize its icy and -20c!?!?!?

When the %*%*^&$*$(#)##(%*^&& is this teething thing going to end!!!!!!

Dh--i know you work hard, we appreciate it....but you've been laid off of work for 2 weeks now, dont you think its time to apply for ei!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Heeeellloooooooooooo we have a mortgage to pay......

And no im not going to have sex with you......why???? Because im tired!!! I feel like the resident cook/maid/slave/poopy diaper dealer-wither!!!!!!!!! And its 4 freaking am! Just becuase you just came to bed after playing video games til all hours of the night and you are horny, doesnt mean you can try and wake me up out of a dead sleep to get some.....f**k the hell off!!!!!

I dont really care if you dont want to go work out of town since you are laid off.......we agreed on me being a sahm and you working, so i cant make money cleaning the house and doing laundry. Ive kept up my end of the deal, keep up yours for f**ks sakes!

And stop leaving your clothes all over the freaking house! Its called a hamper! If you dont put your clothes in there, they wont get washed. You can wear clothes covered in dog hair and that smell like sweaty balls, i could really give a sh*t, cuz im sick and tired of it!

Haha! I think you are talking about your dog here. At first when I read it, I thought, "Hey, her kid does that too!" Yep. My kid does.

LOL I love this thread.

Stay still while I change you! Don't roll over! Don't arch your back! You can play with toys laying on your back! I promise!! It's possible!!
post #760 of 1059
For the love of God man, at nine years old, you really need to not pee in your pants. What makes it worse is that then your dad wants to punish you for it and I end up stuck in the middle. So freaking stop it already.
