My little boys are so excited about learning, I LOVE learning, dh loves researching things... And this isn't something new for her, she's always been like this, I'm just done now.
I have so many awesome books and things strewn about the house, and all she reads is her few Twilight magazines that dh let her buy this past summer. I am so close to getting rid of all the fun stuff in the house, but I know that's not the right thing either.
She complains about helping with ANYTHING. I rather like to idea of just helping when asked, rather than set chores, but she acts like it the end of the world to even lift a finger. She balks at showers, bedtimes (without which I would have a complete nervous breakdown), food she doesn't find satisfactory, etc... Shes just plain rotten to be around anymore.
I'm sure this is rambly and mixed up, but I'm so exhausted and emotional about it all. I texted dh today and told him it's time she got a taste of the real world. Public school. Early waking, shared bathrooms, terrible food, mean kids, bus rides, homework, early bedtimes, no more coffee shop time, etc... (both dh and I's school wasnt a good experience) That's how close I am to ending this all.
