<p>What are yours? Here are some of mine:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>1) Having the covers kicked off of me over and over again by my cosleeping baby.</p>
<p>2) Dropping spit rags off my shoulder countless times a day, sometimes in some not so clean areas too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I thought I had more, but can't think of them now. These are meant to be light-hearted and fun. Add to the list! <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>

<p>Why? Why?</p>
<p>Just why? Mommy is cold and tired and did I mention cold? Just because you are a human space heater does not mean I actually get warm from you alone. Actually, the spot where you stuff your nose does get hot. And sweaty. Its the only hot spot on my body. </p>
<p>Plus, thank you for dropping your heel on my stomach. I wasn't sure where my solar plexus was, now I know. </p>

<p>Was just reminded of another one</p>
<p>-sharing food off my plate. Not because I find it gross, that doesn't bother me. Its just MY food. Same food as what is on their plate. It doesn't taste any different, but somehow my food is better.  </p>

My clothing is not a hankie, no matter how many kids wipe their noses on it.<br><br>
And what is with the psychic connection to a full bathtub? Somebody always starts crying the minute I sink into warm, bubbly bliss.

my current one:<br>
i get a snack ready, ask my kid if ze wants some and get "no!" as an answer.<br>
the MINUTE i sit down to eat, the kid runs over 'ok i am hungry now, get me some too!' <img alt="eyesroll.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eyesroll.gif"><br>
telling a pregnant lady to stop eating is a dangerous thing...no one interrupts me! <img alt="eat.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eat.gif"><br><br><br>
posting again because i thought of another one:<br>
a typical conversation between my 5 year old and i--repeated about 3-4x per day<br>
kid: can i play a game on your computer?<br>
me: no, i'm using it right now for work. you can use it this afternoon after lunch.<br>
kid: I HATE YOU! YOU ARE STUPID!!! I WILL NEVER DO ANYTHING YOU SAY EVER AGAIN! I HATE YOU!!!! SHUT UP!! (stomps off, yelling)<br>
me: woah there...

<p>Reusing to take a pacifier and instead using Mama's nipple as one. OFTEN! </p>
<p>Leaking out of triple stuffed pocket diapers AND a cover. One day I'd like to sleep on sheets that have NO remnants of pee from lazy me not changing/washing them!</p>

<p>DD pinching/digging her dagger nails (no matter how often I trim them!) into my boob while eating...then getting upset, pulling off the boob, and crying when I try to give her my fingers to hold instead...<span><img alt="rolleyes.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif"></span></p>

<p>How come no matter how big he gets, his feet seem to get me right in the c-section scar?</p>

<p>getting headbutted in the face during nursing sessions. Someday this kid will break my nose. Also, why do you have to dig your feet into me, raise your butt up in the air, and slide your head into my face while you're nursing? My boob can only stretch so far and ow! it hurts.</p>
<p>DS loves to pounce on my boob when preparing to nurse. It scares the ^&*! out of me because I think he's going to bite my boob off. (that is despite him never actually biting me, it just looks that scary). Plus did I mention his head hits whatever it's aimed at at the end of the pounce?</p>
<p>Waking up in a puddle of pee because the diaper leaked is another favorite.</p>
<p>And the winner, waking up and crying for nursing just as I sit down with my food and turn on a show.</p>

<p>Arguing and whining at the same time.  If I hear "But Whhhhhhyy-uhhh' one more time when they already know why.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bending down to give them a kiss, only for them to jump up at the same time, knocking their head into my jaw which causes my teeth to clank together.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Getting peed on.  I know, this one really should not be that big of a deal, and I know they can't help it, but I hate it!  Fortunately I haven't yet been puked on.</p>

<p>KNOWING something is bothering my teen, but she WON'T tell me.  It's almost always something small, like she got a B on a test instead of an A.  My teen has a history of depression, so it's important for me to know what's going on with her, but she never wants anyone to know that she's upset, so she never wants to tell me anything. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, infants who are fussy for no apparent reason-when they have been changed, fed, rocked, talked to, walked, bounced etc etc, and they are still fussy...or outright screaming.  My first two were of the screaming variety, at least this third one is more mellow in this respect.</p>

Another vote for the headbutt!!!<br>
Also don't care much for the yank you your hair so hard you swear maneuver.<br>
How about the long forgotten poopy diaper in the wetbag... Though that leads into parent-partner pet peeves which I could start a loooong list of right now ;0)

<p>If I fix tuna salad for all of us for lunch?  It's crap, nothing but crap.  But if I fix all the kids the much coveted PB&J (even with the running-low homemade peach jam) and make dill tuna salad for myself, the 2 year old wants nothing to do with the PB&J and eats all my tuna salad.  Of course.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And I hate, really hate, getting in the van and thinking "hmmm, what IS that smell?"  Wondering if there is a wetbag shoved under one of the seats.  Or some wet clothes.  Or something, because it smells less than pleasant.</p>

<p>Bites, head butts, the little hairs on the back of my neck being pulled.  But today?  The screeching.  Oooh, the screeching.  My 8.5 month old can be very, very screechy.  Whew.  My DH has earplugs for it.  Great topic!</p>

I have way more of those than I do of baby pet peeves! <span><img alt="winky.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif"></span> I dunno, I guess it's easy for me to chalk up the annoying behaviours to her just being a baby. Sure, I don't like the ear-splitting shrieks, but they're par for the course...</p>
