As a parent, how many times DO we have to say the same thing to get through to our kids? Are their heads that thick, or do they really just not give a shit about what comes out of our mouths?
I have to wonder, really, because every single day I find myself saying the same thing over, and over, and OVER- and still it does no good! They’re still doing the same stupid crap, even if it hurts them, even if it gets all of their toys taken away and gets them put in an hour long time out- it doesn’t seem to matter. Don’t they realize that i’m just trying to help them? I’d honestly prefer NOT to punish them constantly- it gives me a nasty little Mommy headache. Mommy with a headache is not a nice Mommy at all, shouldn’t they want to avoid that at all costs?
But Nooo, every day, every single day, it’s the same old shit.
No hitting your brother
Stop biting, you are not a cannibal!
For the love of all that is holy, STOP SCREAMING
Don’t you dare steal his toys one more time
Stop telling your brother what to do, fascist dictator.
And of course, since my kids are the paint-chip eaters, my typical “No No”s of the day always take a turn for the weird, and I constantly catch myself telling them not to do things that sound strange coming out of my mouth, eve stranger that I have to say it more than once.
Stop spitting in your brother’s mouth
Don’t put your finger in your pee stream!
Don’t WIPE that pee finger on me!
Don’t stick your face in the toilet to get a better look at your shit!
Don’t stick your entire drooly fucking fist into the peanut butter jar, jam it into the Cheerios box, and then wipe the disgusting combination in your hair.
No, Parker, you don’t need to scream DOODOO at the top of your lungs while you’re taking one. Not only can I smell it, but I can hear it too.
Just because HE pooped does NOT mean you need to rush to the bathroom to grunt for 20-minutes just so you can poop a bigger poop on top of his poop. What is this, poop wars?
Yes, you NEED to wipe your ass, and NO, you DON’T need to smell it!
Sigh.. I mean really, EVERY DAY, boys? Every day???
At least I can say one thing: There is never, EVER a dull moment in this house.
I love them dearly, even if they are poop sniffing, spit eating cannibals.
In other news: I am PUSHING to have the book released mid next month! Yay! Of course once I have an exact date I will be sure to let everyone know. I’m pretty darn excited- poop, sarcasm, and tales of crazies for everyone!
Leftovers are great for 2 things: Easy, quick dinners, and getting to hear your kids complain about the same meal twice in a week!
@anninabyrne He mentioned something about penis trampolines. I don't even know.
My 10 yo didn't know that Dick is short for Richard so he's spent the past 10 yrs thinking Dick's Sporting Goods is a store for penis sports
8yo told me that Oct 31st is "national knock-knock joke day"- which means Halloween will henceforth be known as "The Most Annoying Day Ever"
@SassyPsychDoc "It seemed like a good idea at the time"
@SassyPsychDoc I fact-checked him myself. Someone was seriously sleeping on the job that day
Thought my 8yo was lying when he said that a male woodchuck is a he-chuck & a female is a she-chuck.Nope. If I have to know that, so do you!
Sometimes advice from our kids is EXACTLY what we need to hear. Been a rough few months & what my 8yo said hit home holdinholden.com/2017/10/winn…
10yo: What is calculus? Me: It's you + me = us Husband: get out. #oldpeoplejokes
