Can I please have some PEACE AND QUIET?!!?

Day 28: Something that stresses you out…

Sometimes I wonder why I had kids. What Mother doesn’t? If you just said you, you are lying to yourself. Every Mom has those bad days. My kids drive me up the wall. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my kids to the end of the Earth and back.

They scream, whine, fight, argue, scream, scream and scream some more. My kids are 3 years apart. Sometimes I think I should of waited longer to have the second kid. Yeah, they are perfect for playing together and enjoy the same activities, but they argue over the smallest things. My little girl is 8 and she has her toys and she doesn’t want her brother touching them, breathing on them, and even looking at them. He just does it to make her scream, I think. She pesters him just the same.

I was the only child to say the least. My sisters are 11 years older than me. So, I never really had anybody to fight and bicker with. As for my husband, him and his brother are 3 years apart. He understands what our kids are going through. As for me, I’m like “PLEASE JUST HUSH!” He said he use to do intentional stuff just to piss his brother off and get him screaming. He says it was some kind of satisfaction. I totally see that in my little boy. He will get Ariel to screaming and turn around and laugh. The whole time I’m thinking “You little Instigator”

How much can one person take the fighting and bitching with each other? I tune them out. If you didn’t, it would be a never ending cycle. I sure hope it is a stage and they grow out of it.

  1. I just have 1 but shes not the sit still and be quite all the time. She has her moments too.. which you know this.. šŸ˜€ ~gets the radio and cranks the music~

  2. Oh hon, my son was two months shy of his third birthday when my daughter was born. I thought it was a good idea to have another baby so he would have someone to play with while growing up. A bestfriend. ((ha..ha..ha..ha..ha..)) Yeah, cause that was gonna happen. She just loved him and he played a perfect big brother till he turned about five, I’d say. Then of course, he wanted nothing to do with her, wanted to hang out with the Nintendo box and his friends, got involved in the Ninja Turtle’s phase, and she was his ‘icky’ little sister, everything she did was ‘dumb’ and he would spent the majority of his elementary school years after trying to dodge her affections, sabotage her by getting her in trouble, and they constantly fought. Yippee-skippee for me! Of course that wasn’t enough, I had to add their little brother to the mix when she was six, and so SHE now became the tyrant. I always told them that someday they would be each others bestfriends, and this was met with wrinkled noses and scowls. Today they all love one another very much. Sadly, two are out of the house and one is quickly nearing eighteen. I was the lucky one that got to deal with them for all the years before it happened. Happy parenting, my dear!
