I Don’t Want Your Kid To Be An Asshole, I Just Want To Know That Mine Are Normal
Honest to GAWD, you guys. I cannot take any more of this whine until Mommy loses her shit crap. Or my mind. Or my fucking marbles.
Why is it that a (almost) 5 year old’s preferred methods of communication include whining and high pitched screaming. Don’t forget the waterless tears, because those are my absolute favourite.
I’m not gonna lie. Yesterday was rough. There was nothing that got accomplished in this house until the volume of my requests were full out screaming at my children.
It was so rough, that when the bottle of tequila started making sexy eyes at me in the middle of the afternoon, I didn’t ignore his cat calls and tell him not in front of the children. I made the eyes back. I fantasized about wrapping my full lips around the neck of the bottle, and taking all of him back. Every last drop.
Thanks God for fantasies. They get you through the day.
Despite all the shitty behaviour, and a rainy day where no outside time was really possible, I gave them one job: Behave yourselves at the grocery store, and we will visit Dollarama for some crafts.
But oh no, that was just was too high of an expectation. They couldn’t act like normal humans for 40 minutes.
I seriously just wanted to zipper their mouths shut and tie them to the rocket cart they were driving. It was horrible.
I didn’t even wait until we got home to yell at them. I let ‘er lose right there in the truck,in the parking lot.
I just want to feel for one day that I am raising children that will be respectful, obedient human beings. That I am teaching them the behaviours they need to learn so that they will succeed at school or work. That they will realize you have to earn things in this life, and they will remember that assholery only gets you so far, and then it all falls apart.
I just want ONE DAY where I feel like I am respected in my own home and that my efforts are recognized by them. Sometimes they just act so un-appreciatively, and it makes me so sad that they don’t realize how hard I try to make their life awesome.
When someone is always crying or complaining, it sure makes you feel like you are doing a shit job. And I wonder if every parent out there feels the same way.
So, do you? Feel like you never get it right that is?
That’s where Tuesday left me, Bitches. Tell me you’ve been there and that it changes.
