Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! For the love of God, stop talking! I'm begging you. Please....stop talking!!!!!!!!!!



Had to get that out of my system.

Here's a typical conversation with 3 yo Kate these days:

Kate: What letter does bubble bath start with?

Me: Well, it's two words--bubble starts with b and bath starts with b.

Kate: What doesn't start with b?

Me: Lots of things dont' start with b.

Kate: What doesn't start with b?

Me: Moon. Moon starts with M not with b.

Kate: Oh. What else doesn't start with b?

Me: Lots of things don't start with b.

[repeat substituting different words for "moon."]

I swear if I get one more "what doesn't" question my ears are going to start bleeding.

but here I am

ARGGH you are all driving me nuts with the fussing and fighting
KNOCK IT OFF
You at 10 1/2 have more attitude than your 17 old brother NO It is not following Dad's disagreement guidelines it IS ARGUING WITH YOUR MOTHER AND ISN"T TOLERATED IN THIS HOUSE THIS WAY
I don;t know what your problem is this last week but if you do not quit aggravating your two older/st siblings and causing havoc I am going to sell you to the gypsies!
Even your extra patience for being different has worn thin and snapped

I AM YOUR MOTHER NOT A (*&+(&*(&B REFEREE!!!

Bumping this WAY OLD thread because I remember how amazingly helpful and hilarious it was to read, and what a lift it gave me to think of it, just before I might BLOW. I do believe it's helped in warding off some major temper tantrums. Mine that is.

Allow me to (re)start:

"I don't freaking care how neat the dinosaur fruit snacks look! I just don't care! We're not buying high fructose fruit crap! We're not. NOT NOT NOT NOT buying crap! If you want treats, we'll bake something with real ingredients and cut it into dinosaur shapes. My God, we'll buy some serious chocolate and chow down for GOD's sake. If you want fruit, we'll eat fruit! So there! No more whining! No more looking at the fruit snack box for hours in the store! No more trying to sneak it into the cart! No more asking, and if asked, you will be ignored! NO! MORE! NO MORE!

Whew, that really does help... anyone else interested in helping me revive this thread?

Ok, here's mine:

If you're going to wake up 17 times a night, please allow me to help you fall back asleep, instead of grumping and groaning and kicking and flailing. If I decide to be really super nice, and invite you into my bed, please don't ruin it by steamrolling your infant brother. That's not nice.

When I Do Play Barbies Stop Making Your Freaking Princess Run Away And Be 'shy' Every Time I Talk To Her. That Makes Me Not Want To Play Even More. Argh.



Leave The Cat Food, Please. Please Move Away From The Cat Bowls. Step Away From The Freaking Bowls.

you can't eat newspaper. you can't eat carpet fuzzies. you can't play in the dirty diaper pail. you can't crawl down the hallway and into the kitchen and bathroom. stop pulling stuff off my desk and the hallway table. you have toys; why aren't they as interesting? the kitty doesn't want to play with you, she wants to sleep. please stop biting mama's facey. it's cute, but not when you get in there with the toofers. we do not splash in the little potty just because I can't get away from you for 5 seconds to dump it out. we do not eat paperback books.

okay, now I'm :LOL

For the four year old:

Please, just use this potty. It is just like the potty at home. No, it won't hurt you. Please, I put the Baby Bjorn ring on it, it is safe, I will hold you in my arms. LOOK, JUST USE THE FRICKING POTTY! DON'T PEE IN THE CAR AGAIN BECAUSE WE CAN'T MAKE IT HOME AFTER GIVING YOU TWO CHANCES TO USE THE POTTY TEN MINUTES BEFORE LEAVING.



ok, that felt better.

STOP WHINING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


right friggin now...


And while I am it......if you kick me in bed again I am going to really scream.
I need to sleep. Really I do. I know you don't. But I do. I am such a better mommy when I have sleep. I don't even need alot. Just like 4 hours of uninteruprted slumber would completely rejuvenate me.

Gentle discipline is so ready to get spanked in this house.

Blah.

This thread is hilarious!

Ok- here goes:

I already told you; yes, you can have 'boobie' as soon as I get Katie to sleep. But you have to be quiet so she can fall asleep and then we'll snuggle and you can have boobie. Yes you can see her. See? She's almost asleep. Be very quiet okay? Shhhh.

OH GREAT! NOW YOU WOKE KATIE UP! I TOLD YOU TO BE QUIET. PLEASE, WHY WON'T ANYBODY IN THIS HOUSE SLEEP? MOMMY JUST WANTS SOME SLEEP.

OH, AND you little one, why are you still up every 2-3 hours at night? You're supposed to be able to sleep 4-5 hours straight by now?

DON'T YOU ALL KNOW THAT A PERSON COULD *DIE* FROM SLEEP DEPRIVATION?

DO YOU WANT MOMMY TO DIE? WELL? WELL? DO YOU?

SLEEP

SLEEP

SLEEP

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

I'm still tired but I feel a little better. . . . lol!

Do you HAVE to watch Thomas the friggin' Tank Engine AGAIN??!!!
I am so sick of that damn train I'm making up new lyrics to the song to fit my mood!! And NO they're NOT for little one's ears!!
Do you have to have Thomas playing in the morning and Thomas all day long?!
Katri you're an adorable little GIRL!!! GIRLS are suppose to like Strawberry shortcake or My Little Pony! Hell even Sesame street is fine but please please PLEASE No more THOMAS!!!

And you little fart, you get off your butt and crawl!! Don't sit there screaming at me until I pick you up!!! You are fully mobile Loric, there is nooooo reason you shouldn't be crawling around to get where you want, I shouldn't have to CARRY you everywhere!!

Finally piece and quiet when Loric falls asleep with me in the recliner and Katri joins us, as long as THOMAS is playing on the TV.

Sleep is good, even if you dream about the Island of Sodor.....ah

E & K (13yrs) and our flock of 6!

Wow! This thread is having the very same effect on me this time around. I'm laughing so hard I'm tearing up... it is so helpful to "unstifle" to those who really understand.

Aside from DS's ever elusive fruit snacks, bedtime has become a real issue around here. Again...

FOR THE LAST TIME PLEASE: IF YOU RELAX AND CLOSE YOUR EYES, IT WILL HELP YOU FALL ASLEEP EASIER AND FASTER! STOP LAYING THERE STARING AT THE ***DAMN CEILING FOR AN HOUR AND HALF WAITING FOR YOUR EYES TO CLOSE ON THEIR OWN! CLOSE YOUR EYES! CLOSE THEM! NOW! IT'S ALREADY PAST 8 O'CLOCK AND MOMMY NEEDS A BREAK. SHE NEEDS TO BE ALONE FOR TWO FLIPPIN' MINUTES BEFORE DADDY COMES IN FROM WORK AND STARTS GOING ON AND ON ABOUT HIS DAY!

Whew, it has been a rough year I think. Things are slowly easing, but age four has been one serious merry-go-round of ACK! Just one ACK! after another...

The best and thank you for joining back in here.
