Mean Mom


“Jeez Mom- you are so mean!”

I had to bit my tongue when Scorch told me that this morning.

Yes, I am mean* when I’ve asked you to get dressed 10 times and you ignored me.

Yes, I am mean when I’ve asked you to clean up and you keep telling me 1 minute. After the 5th time, I snap.

Yes, I am mean when it’s 10 pm and you’re still awake and won’t stop talking.

Yes, I am mean when you push your sister (or vice versa) after being told for the hundredth time to keep your hands to yourself.

I love you, little boy, with my whole heart, but you are making me crazy. I full expected you to loose your teeth when you were five, I didn’t expect you to lose your hearing as well.

*Mean = standing next to Scorch while he does what ever he was supposed to do/putting kids in time out. As The Hubs (a cop) says, my kids really don’t understand the true meaning of mean (thank goodness!).

    • LOL..that is exactly it. I remind myself that one day I’ll look back on all this craziness and miss it- but while I’m in the thick of it, some of this nonsense just makes me want to tear my hair out!
