All I seem to be able to do is stick my foot in my mouth
Better than having to stick it in someone's arse... I guess that's where we go from here. He's big enough now
Kids grow up so fast. Next month my oldest turns the big 18 and we are planning her wedding. Just seems like yesterday she was dressing as a bride and now she is gonna be one
Oh my lord, well... I got no complaints now! I didn't realize you had a girl. That's really scary... It ain't fair LP!
Congrats to your daughter, I wish them (and you) well :)
Thank ya. :)
Actually I have three girls the other two are 14 and 9 and then my son is 10.
Wow... you are a saint. That explains so much, the patience. That would be a one-way ticket to a padded room for me.
My son is 10 too. Most welcome ;)
They are good kids but they have their moments where I feel like I need a time out in the padded room
I'm not ashamed to say I've put myself in a 'time-out' on more than one occasion. lmao
My opinion is there is nothing wrong with that, we are human. :)
That's when you know something really bad went down, when Mom needs a time-out...
I have plenty of moments like that. All I could do was shake my head and walk away. When out of site most of the times I busted out laughing but I didn't want the to get the idea that was okay.
Yep, been there! Parental time-outs are reserved for extraordinary circumstances like that...
Painting the dog immediately comes to mind ;)
Or painting your new white whiles with a marker set
Oh that's fun! I don't recall having that much fun as a kid and I know I'd remember the whipping if it had happened ;)
I would have remembered that too :)
It happens. My eldest sister and bil...they finally sold their cottage and said: we'll let the kids buy the next one.
It's only fair! I figure at bare minimum, I have a solid 5 years worth of piggyback rides to cash in on and believe me, I will!
I know you said you'll do this...but will you? Have you?
Ha. What your pic in pink above sez.
Ahh... I've covered two of the above just to make a point. I'm not a very nice mom. I don't do tantrums, messes, whining or "I can't." I've also been known to randomly seize property. I've stopped short of breaking things deliberately though.
Technical gifts were mostly meant to be used for discipline and blackmail...
Exactly, see, we understand each other. I've told him that before: "That's why we parents always want to know what toys you like the most, so we can use them, to control you." lmao
Truthfully, he isn't that bad. Well, not yet, he isn't a teenager yet. We'll see...
LOL....it may not be that bad....
