Spoiled Brats

MP900427604My youngest
daughter is not talking to me tonight.

Her older
brother was teasing her and she totally overreacted.

Then, because
I told her to quit being so dramatic (and yes, I did yell at her brother too) she told me I was unfeeling and was basically an awful person.

Tonight both of
my children are mad at me.

So, even
though today I drove them both to school, picked them both up from school, washed their
clothes, drove her to dance, took him to a friends, made them both nutritious
meals, helped them with homework and did a long day’s work to ensure they have a nice place to live and food on
the table?

I am still, in their eyes, a bad person.

I. Give. Up.

Anyone want
to run away with me? I need to escape my kids right now.

I’m
thinking some place tropical where there are drinks with umbrellas.

And maybe
cabana boys too.

Sigh.

  1. Reading posts like this is the surest cure for any empty nest syndrome I might occasionally suffer. Sorry for the rough day/night, but thanks for the reminder that sometimes quiet is better. πŸ˜‰
