I love my kids with all my heart but sometimes they push my buttons. Yes, I scream and yell plus I look like a lunatic too. I’m sure the neighborhood hears my roars. I don’t go off that much but when I do…whoever made me mad better stay out of my way. LOL! I’m not that bad- just kidding but I do yell when I’m mad. Yes, need to find another way!
My daughter has been very trying lately. When I mean lately I’m probably meaning as far back as I remember. She came into the world screaming that lasted almost a hour. Ever since, we have tried our best not to piss her off, lol! We created this lil miss know it all and now we have to pay the price. I get it! However, my patience disappeared last night and oh boy did she get in trouble. It took all of me not to go bat crazy on her because she was so out of line it was ridiculous. Yesterday, I took the kids to Target because my hubby wanted to buy me a new phone (really didn’t need one but ok)and my son was going to get my old iPhone4s. My daughter got my iPhone4 last time I upgraded so it was my sons turn anyways. Well, she didn’t like it one bit and the whole time at Target she was pouting and saying mean things. I ignored her comments on how I like her brother more than her and blah blah blah! A bit spoiled? I wasn’t trying to reward her behavior but I wanted to be FAIR (story of my life) so I did buy her a $15 toy she wanted and I knew she was saving up for it. I placed it in my cart to surprise her. We got home and I showed her the gift- she was supper happy. Phew- both kids happy! A good 40 minutes goes by and no fighting- love that!
Then it all went south…..
My daughter who also has a iPhone took all the chargers and didn’t want to give her brother the charger to charge his phone. I was making dinner and I hear this gawd awful scream so I run to the living room and they are fighting over a charger (we have 3 of them). My daughter refuses to give him one of them. I GO OFF- yes I admit it wasn’t my finest minute but I had enough. I took the charger and gave it to my son and told him to go to his room. Then it was daughter’s turn to get the wrath of MOM. I let her have it…she was acting like a spoiled child and this is not right. She turned to me and said ” I wish you weren’t my mom you are mean” WTF really- oh my gosh I blew a gasket. I took the toy I bought her and put it by the front door and told her I was returning it. I’m still trying to make dinner though and dealing with my meltdown. Let’s just say dinner SUCKED and I was done!
Later we sat down and discussed both of our actions, we both realized we need to figure out other ways to deal with anger. Oh my- #lifeofamom!
Thanks for listening and please no judging we all have weak moments, it’s how we deal with the aftermath. I want to break the cycle of yelling at my kids. We all need to work on our anger issues.
