Same daycare child... STOP staring at me. I am not going to suddenly break into a song and dance. Go play....You're freaking me out.
anyways......to dh : WILL YOU JUST LOOK AT THE LABEL SOMETIMES, IT WAS MENT FOR OUR KID, NOT AN ADULT!! WE ARE RAISING HIM SUGAR FREE, I DONT WANT VIT C WITH THE FIRST INGREDIANT IN THE LIST BEING SUCROSE!
To my 5 yr old... I KNOW YOU ARE TIRED. BUT THERE IS NO HUMANLY POSSIBLE WAY I CAN CARRY YOU, YOUR SISTER, YOUR BROTHER, THE SAND TOYS AND THE BAG WITH ALL THE BEACH STUFF IN IT. I WOULD TRY BUT I THINK MY ARMS WOULD RIP OUT OF MY SOCKETS. YES, YOU HAVE TO WALK TO THE CAR!!! STOP ASKING FOR BOILED EGGS!!!
To the baby - oh my, you are still so cute and can do no wrong.
To my husband - WHY ON EARTH DID YOU DECIDE YOU WANT TO PLAY WARCRAFT??? I AM NOW A WOW WIDOW. I WAS NOT JOKING WHEN I STATED I AM SEEING THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF OUR MARRIAGE.
I actually do feel better after that.
Kim ~mom to one awesome dd (12)
to the cat- I am so sick of cleaning up barf off the carpet, can't ya at least aim for the tile?
to dd(6)- stop asking me to reheat your food three times a freakin meal, eat it while its warm already, I HATE USING THE MICROWAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!
to dp- if it wasn't for you I would have done chucked that d*** radiation box out the window already
to ds(4(- STOP being such a scientist ALL the time, just every once in a while can't you just take something I say as true already, touching posion ivy WILL result in bumps, touching a hot pan WILL result in a burn, laughing a finger width from the cat's face WILL result in a scratch(SHEA DOES NOT LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!), AND WHAT"S UP WITH CONDUCTING EXPERIMENTS WHILE PEEING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! !!!!!!!!!AND WHY MUST I BE PRESENT! Go by yourself and point it towards the pot and get it over already!
to 2 yr old dn I care for some days- unused toliet paper, binky, hand towels, your hands, feet, and my socks??????????? NONE of those things go in the toilet!!!! It's gross! The sink's right beside the toilet, remember, water play away, JUST STAY OUT OF THE TOILET
Ok that does feel amazingly good to type!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
to dd- FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME, NO YOU CAN NOT PLAY WITH THE NEWBORN KITTENS! THEIR EYES AREN'T EVEN OPEN YET!!! WHEN I ASK A QUESTION ANSWER ME WITH WORDS INSTEAD OF BABY TALK, GRUNTS, OR MONKEY NOISES. YOU ARE 6 YEARS OLD DAMN IT AND KNOW HOW TO TALK!
Kim ~mom to one awesome dd (12)
To ds: QUIT ASKING ME "WHY?" FOR ABSOLUTELY EVERY THING I SAY. "IT'S TIME TO LEAVE, PLEASE PUT YOUR SHOES ON" "WHY?" BECAUSE IT'S TIME TO LEAVE YOU IDIOT CHILD!!! I JUST TOLD YOU THAT!!!! GO PUT YOUR SHOES ON NOW!!!! YOU ARE 5 YEARS OLD AND ARE SUPPOSED TO BE DONE WITH THIS STAGE.
To dd: STOP WAKING UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT THREE TIMES TO NURSE. I HAVE NURSED YOU WHENEVER YOU WANT FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS AND I AM SOOOOOO DONE WITH NURSING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. IN FACT, I BELIEVE I'M DONE NURSING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY TOO! AND IN THE EVENINGS, AND THE MORNINGS.
AND OH, NO DD, DON'T YOU START THE WHY THING TOO! YOU'RE ONLY 2, YOU ARE TOO YOUNG FOR ASKING WHY.
I WILL SERIOUISLY GO CRAZY IF EVERY TIME I SAY ANYTHING TO EITHER OF MY CHILDREN THEY RESPOND "WHY?"
(To DH, on the other hand, THANK YOU for getting up and staying up with DS. I tend to hallucinate when exhausted, and hallucinating while trying to nurse DS down is scary.)
Also to DS...do NOT stick your finger up your butt! And do NOT come over with your nose all screwed up, saying "UCKY" while sticking THAT FINGER in my face! Augh! And then, do NOT start playing with your penis, practicing retraction, and putting that same finger into your foreskin! I don't want you to have to have antibiotics, please STOP doing that!!!
To DH: Remember when I said I don't want an engagement ring several times, and I showed you my grandmother's ring that I wanted to use as an e-ring? Remember? And remember how for some reason you didn't think I was telling the truth and you made a huge production out of buying me a ring and the first ring sucked and we returned it and the salespeople made me cry, and then the second ring, while it was being made, almost cost us our relationship? Remember how you should have learned that if I say I don't want something, I don't want something!!!!? I know that in your mother's culture you have to ask and refuse something like three times, even if you desperately want it, but that's NOT MY CULTURE and I don't play that game!!!!
So, today, when you started on your "I'm going to get you an expensive digital camera" thing again, and I said "but I would much rather get back into film than get a new digital camera", WHY DID YOU DOUBT ME?????!!!!!!! I LOVE film! I adore film! I'm telling you the TRUTH!!! There was NO need for that to start a day-long argument while at the tot-lot....:
Back later for more venting- Boy needs milk.
And Quit Teasing Each.
And Really, Ya Think You Could Find The Floor In Your Room!?!?
DS, when I am using all my words and trying hard to explain myself and why I do certain things, like take you away from the moving boxes with the delicate glass, or keep you from climbing on the table to swat the hanging light (I don't mind table climbing on its own), and various assorted other things....please do NOT put your hands up in a "what? I don't know what you're saying" sort of way, please do NOT start copying me by basically saying "blah blah blah blah", and then? When I've explained everything? Please do NOT NOT NOT end the "blah blah blahs" with "WHY?"
Child-o-mine you are just soooo lucky you have ME as a parent rather than many, many other parents, b/c that behaviour is incredibly infuriating! I could see it causing an anger spike, and with another person parenting you, that would not be fun for you!!!
I should start THAT thread......
Don't touch your brother. Don't jump on top of him. I know you love him, but while your hands and face are covered in tomato sauce, PLEASE DON'T KISS HIM. PLEASE GET OFF HIM. WHEN HE'S CRYING THAT MEANS HE DOESN'T LIKE IT, PLEASE GET OFF HIM. OF COURSE I'M COMFORTING HIM - SOME BIG KID JUST JUMPED ON TOP OF HIM!! NO THAT DOESN'T MEAN I LOVE HIM MORE THAN YOU although on a day like today I could be tempted....
ok i feel MUCH better now.

To 13 month old dd - "I just need to switch the laundry over. It takes me 30 seconds tops. I will pick you up as soon as I'm done. Please, don't throw yourself on the floor crying and act like the world is coming to an end. I WILL pick you up and carry you for most of the day! Do you want clean clothes!!!"
Ahhhhhhhhh......I should have posted this a week ago. Maybe it would have helped sooner.

I went through this stage with your nana and believe it or not we survived ( I am here with you aren't I)
and please stop doing the revisionist history!
I know when we let your brother have a *true* girlfriend and go out on chaperoned and non chaperoned dates thank you very much -ok your dad remembers since my mind is swiss cheese at the moment.
Please quit trying to take advantage of that too!!
dear ds if you don't quit acting like books and other things in the cubes are the plague I may have to quarantine you in the dog crate....
and my teen? Please slow down on the tats-its skin NOT canvas..
