Who Did I Piss Off?

So it's only Wednesday morning and already I've had a week from hell! So what has been happening?

1. Girl came home with her progress report on Monday. Which stated that she is STILL calling out in class even though we have had this discussion several times since school started a month ago. Her punishment - she must raise her hand when she wishes to speak at home. We'll see how this works out.

2. Boy 1 tried to climb the shower curtain. Which resulted in a HUGE rip in the cloth curtain. (And don't ask why he was doing it, I still can't get an answer out of him. I chalk it up to being almost 5)

3. Boy 2 has become Houdini. He managed to escape out the back door the other night. I found him with the broom sweeping the deck. I'm still not sure how he got out there but I'm just grateful he didn't leave the deck!

4. Girl came home with a note from the teacher yesterday. She was given several warnings and continued to "speak during inappropriate times". I'm suppose to have a conversation with her about being respectful.

5. And the best one. On Boy 1's way home from school (a.k.a. daycare where they provide transportation) yesterday the van ran out of gas. And NO, I wasn't driving! So what did the driver do? Instead of calling for help he walked my son down the super busy street in rush hour traffic to the gas station and back! I couldn't effing believe it! Needless to say that driver is no longer employed!!

Seriously, I don't know who I pissed off this week but give me a break already! What can I do to get back in good graces?? Cause I really don't know how much more I can take this week.

Creative punishment for Girl. To whom do you credit your disciplinary creativity?

My creative punishment for girl really isn't working too well. She has since had to write 40 sentences: "I will remember to raise my hand".

Every time she forgets it adds 5 more sentences....I think she got to 20 tonight alone.

Oh my! I hate days/weeks like that when it just feels like everything is getting dumped on you. If it makes you feel better, this morning when I was on the phone with my sister, she shrieked mid-sentence and screamed, "Emily just cut her hair off!"

Yes, my 3-year-old niece got into the scissors and cut one side of her hair all the way above her ears. Hope that her misery makes you laugh! Have a great rest of the night!

You have 2 healthy boys. Lots of people would like one. Sell one and you'll still have 2 kids and less headaches! LOL

I can so relate to this subject. I ask that questrion of myself everyday :)

Amber said...

WOW, your 2 boys sound like my 3 year old. My mom calls him Houdini too. Turn your back and he's gone. His new trick is Find mommies contact lenses that I cut up with scissors.
The arm raising at home, I will definately try on my 7 year old.

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
