Feel like yelling at your child? Yell at this thread instead! - Page 45

post #881 of 1059

yep! I have a friend who never lets her children in the bathroom with her.  At first I thought that was a little weird and I wondered how in the world she managed to do that, but now I wish I had done it that way.  Oh well...hopefully by high school they won't want to be with me when i *go*.  LOL

DD, QUIT FLIPPING ARGUING WITH ME!!!!!  JUST STOP!  STOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP! 

 

 

Also, you'd be warmer if you would put clothes on. 

post #884 of 1059

Please stop talking for 5 mins.  I'm serious.  I cannot stand to hear another word come out of your mouth!!!

STOP CRYING ALREADY!  EVERYTHING IS MAKING YOU CRY TODAY - WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?  I HAVE MUSIC ON TO KEEP ME SANE.  STOP CRYING FOR ME TO TURN IT OFF!  STOP ASKING ME WHERE THINGS ARE AND PRETENDING YOU DON'T SEE THEM WHEN I SHOW YOU.  AND STOP SAYING NO WHEN I OFFER TO DO SOMETHING THEN SCREAMING THAT THAT'S WHAT YOU WANTED 30 SECONDS LATER.  AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, STOP TAKING ALL YOUR LITTLE SISTER'S TOYS.  ARGH ARGH ARGH!  IT'S ONLY TUESDAY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

STOP MOANING! I get it that you're sick. I understand that your head hurts. But it would hurt a heck of a lot less if you would quit screaming for me because I had the audacity to leave the room to cook dinner. I spent 3 bleeping hours lying next to you on the bed. I NEEDED to cook dinner so the other three members of our family would not go hungry. You really can stand being in bed, with an audiobook for 10 minutes while I throw together a curry and start some rice! You do NOT need to share the state of your misery with me every 30 seconds.

Please, for the love of all that is holy, start bloody listening to me! I really truly only have the best intentions for you! Stop doing the exact opposite of what I say all the time!

 

DS---You are FINE. You ate, you pooped, you have toys, you napped, you are right as rain. Please, stop crying and tugging on my sleeve and acting like I am physically mauling you every time I put you on the floor or focus on someone who isn't you. I promise, the world will not end.

 

Other DS--NAP. Seriously, just nap. No more screaming from your crib (the playful kind), no more yelling, no more throwing toys about, NAP. You are a beast. 

 

That is all.

Ok, so I've offered you dozens of things to do today.  Tons of things that you like to do.  But today all you do is whine "I don't want to" or just "No."  What is up?  What do you want to do?  " Well, I just.... um .... I'd like to stay inside....and, well, I was looking at this pen ....."  I need to stop asking.  <sigh>

Whew! That feels better. It actually helps me see that it's not DS's fault since he's just a toddler, has no control over my pregnancy, my PG, my being single, and really, waking up at 4am

post #890 of 1059

Go. A. Way. Seriously! Both of you need to just go away! I am sick of the crying and the attitude and the tantrums! I have tried to be understanding but I have had enough! OMG, why is it not just bedtime already?! And please, for the love of all that is holy, STOP saying "Mamaaaaaaaaaaa! Mamaaaaaaaaaaa!" every two seconds! If you want to talk to me, come and talk to me and stop yelling at me from across the house or outside!!!!!!!!!!

 

ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLEASE LETS HURRY UP AND GET DRESSED FOR SCHOOL INSTEAD OF FIGHTING WITH ONE ANOTHER.

post #892 of 1059

GET UP, GET DRESSED, BRUSH YOUR HAIR, BRUSH YOUR TEETH, PUT ON YOUR SHOES!  THAT IS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO!  STOP TELLING ME TO STOP TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO!  YOU SAT ON THE FLOOR IN THE PLAYROOM PLAYING WITH BEADS!  I APPARENTLY STILL NEED TO REMIND YOU ABOUT THE SHOES, HAIR AND TEETH!

BAH HUMBUG! This isn't the right place for this.

Please stop kneading the bejeezus out of my boob like it's an almost empty Capri Sun juice packet.

 

Stop offering me a toy in exchange for the butter knife.  We are not playing "Let's Make A Deal".  You do not need to scream like you are being eaten by wild animals because I will not give you said butter knife.

 

Stop trying to use my phone.  Stop dialing people who live in foreign countries.  Stop calling the mother-in-law.  Or people I don't want to talk to.  How do you manage, at nineteen months old, to figure out the WORST people to call?  Are you really trying to call CPS?  Go ahead, be my guest!

 

Please do not rip my t-shirt off of me while we are on the bus.  No time is a good time to stretch out all the necklines on my t-shirts, but when we are on the bus would be the WORST time.

 

It's a good thing you're cute.

Oh, are you sleepy?  Are you ready for your morning nap early?  REALLY?!?!?!?!?  HOW SHOCKING! You kept waking me up all night, no less than 12 times did you pull my face, my breasts, my hair.  My stomach is NOT for kicking and bouncing!  I know it's squishy - you Keith Moon'ed it up in there, little girl.  EVEN THE NURSES FELT BAD FOR ME WHEN YOU FIIIIINALLY CAME OUT!  Seriously.  What did you want?  You got your nunnie, all 12 times.  You bit me.  You pinched me.  You screamed at me.  WWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHY?  And now you're peacefully asleep, sucking your little thumb under your favorite quilt, and I've got the bathrooms to clean, the kitchen to clean, the tile floors to mop, the plants to tend, a whole lotta cooking to do...  oh, why is Mama so behind?  Why indeed!  BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T LET ME OUT OF YOUR SIGHT FOR TWO DAYS!!!!!  Because Papa just won't do.  Because Mama can't do everything with your 17 pound butt strapped to her chest. 

 

It's a good thing you're cute, little miss.  This is just about enough of this foolishness!

I swear my ds did this at that age. Only it was a steak knife he wanted. Wanted being the key word. He also gets mad whenever we're eating and everyone else has a knife but him...umm...yeah.

This is so familiar!  I've bought so many boxes of colored pencils.  It's not that I don't expect them to get lost occasionally but it's just MADDENING how quickly they disappear, and no one has a clue where they could be. 

 

Maybe I was odd (well, I know I was odd) but I managed to use the same box the whole year when I was a kid.

Same here, and when they were gone, they were gone. Until school supply shopping time next year.
