Kids Suck

Being a mother is a thankless job. In one week, the Boy has said to me:

- "You aren't much fun!" (on three occasions, while hurrying him to get ready to go to the sitter's)

- "Stop kissing me! You're annoying me!" (this almost made me cry)

- "You're making me grumpy! You need to cooperate!"

- "Leave me alone! Go in the bathroom!"

He's three-freakin'-years old. What kind of emotional damage is he going to inflict on me when he has a full vocabulary?

Along with the heart-breaking comments, he also peed in my bed this week, so I had to take the feather mattress thingey I keep on top of the regular mattress to the cleaners, at a cost of about $35. And, I can't sleep without the damn thing.

Kids just suck.

That's Mr. Lobster protecting his modesty in the pic.

Ha hahaa. I like his comments. I wonder what mine will say when he starts talking.

Aah, motherhood is the most thankless job - unfortunately, at his age (or for the next 10-15 years) they just don't realize how much we do for them...I've cried myself to sleep a jillion times thinking I should have done something different, but they do appreciate it.....eventually. Trust me.

Subversive little stinkers, aren't they? *sign* My son is 16 and the verbal barbs have a more subtle flavor. Sheesh! Broccoli for dinner is my only means of revenge.

You should keep a log of these verbal barbs, for effective guilt-inducing-fun when he is an adult. Sweet revenge!

Hi DH... I am so behind on your blog.

1. Love the diaper cake. That is way too cool. Excellent job.

2. Hopewell Rocks.. Those are some beautiful pictures. I really need to escape further away from my house.

3. Any and all scary movies. I dont watch them. If I do I have nitemares for a month afterwards. Just not my cup of tea.

4. I have never seen a ghost. I do believe in them though. I have had strange things happen at the lady's house that we can not explain and she always says its her deceased hubby.

5. Simply amazing and breathtaking. I really love this one, well I really love all of them. I need to get busy and get me another quilt afghan crocheted up.

6. Excellent package. I love Stepmom. My daughter and I watch that from time to time.

And last but not least. My teens say some really horrible things to me. Mostly I dont let it bother me cause I know they dont mean it.. but there are times I cant believe they said that.

BTW.. I put up some pictures on my blog that I am pretty sure you would appreciate. I tried to get more for ya, but the sun was not being nice to me. And neither was the flash on my camera.

Kids! I swear they have some form of mini PMS but with BIGGER mood swings. I don't care what anyone says, three year olds are worse than two year olds....because they can verbalize a little better and boy, oh boy, do they let us have it. Just wait until you hit the terrible eights and tens. I haven't figured it out yet, but seven and nine are much nicer years for kids...atleast that is my experience.
