StupidMom

I saw something this morning when I dropped of Little One at Mini Storage that drives me absolutely insane. StupidMom gets out of her BMW in her cashmere knee length coat complete with scarf and gloves, adorable boots, very chic, very wintery. I loved her whole ensemble, it was completely to die for. She saunters around her BMW to the other side and opens the door to get out her minis. Mini#1 was in SHORTS and a t-shirt and flip flops. He was wearing a hoodie, he's probably 2. Mini#2 is probably one-ish, almost one and had on a short sleeve pajama top (I know it was pajamas because Little One had the same set back in the summer) with blue jeans and NO SHOES AND SOCKS....NO COAT....NOTHING. It is NOT warm today. It is rainy and cold and nasty and if she had the time to gussy herself up in her fancy shmancy coat and scarf ensemble with every hair in place and makeup perfect, outfit fantastic and WARM, why couldn't she dress the kids? I don't care if they aren't wearing designer cashmere coats and gloves but DAMN, can't they have a coat at all? Can't they at least have socks? What is wrong with people?



Little One doesn't nap when she's in Storage. Little One takes approximately two 15 minute naps per day. She spends the rest of her time terrorizing the other babies that are trying to nap and driving the teachers batty with her incessant demands and getting into everything. I feel bad. I have THAT kid. My kid is the one that irritates the shit out of all the other kids and probably makes the teachers wish they had another job....ANY other job. She's got a massive case of separation anxiety right now and teeth coming in to boot. Her little (or BIG) personality is coming into it's own right now and she is going to be a handful for sure. She's very mouthy and she's a little devilish. She's quick to tell you no no and even quicker to pitch a fit if she isn't being tended to her liking. I am not a helicopter mom. I do not hover, I do not give in to tantrums, I do not put up with whining and fit throwing...period. This mini is going to give me a run for my money. This mini might be the one that finally drives the nail in......



Big One tells me this morning that she hates school and wishes we could all stay home every day. No school, no work. I guess she doesn't quite get the whole-don't pay your bills, don't live in your house and enjoy electricity and running water-thing. She said she's never growing up and getting a job. Ever. She wants to live with Mommy and Daddy and Sissy and Bella forever. She thinks we will all just live happily ever after in our house, just the four of us and Bella. I hate to burst that cute little bubble and I hate even more thinking that in another couple years she's gonna hate me and the Husband and Sissy and we will be the most moronic people on earth and she will tell us life isn't fair and she hates us and she wishes she were never born and didn't have to live with us. I really hate to think of those years. I really hate to burst that sweet little picture she has in her mind right now, all lovey dovey and happily ever after....


I wrote a post (read it here) some months back about how the amount of medicine in the bottle never lasts the amount of days it is supposed to whenever we get antibiotics for either mini. Well, it happened again and I'm starting to think that I really can't do this right......is it me? Really? Does this never happen to anyone else? I mean, I am a well educated, smart person. I can read. I can read well. I can multitask like no one else. I hold down two jobs, single parent during the week, do most all of the laundry, dishes, housework, childrearing, etc. I run two businesses flawlessly. Why can I not make a bottle of antibiotics last 10 days? WHAT is the problem here? Maybe my name should be StupidMom.....nah, I do at least put socks and shoes on the minis

LMAO Miss E. is also by far my most demanding child. The poor Girl has my temper. I can see us butting heads so very clearly in my mind.

Stupid Mom need a bucket of water thrown on her.

I think socks and shoes are more important than 10 days of antibiotics.
