Back to school chaos
Wednesday, September 04, 2019
My kids all went back to school yesterday. Let me tell you, I was not emotionally prepared for yesterday. But not for the reason you think. It's overwhelming for me to be close close to anyone, but these kids... Let me tell ya. They are the most disfunctional band of littles, it blows my mind. I am their step Mama, and these littles just scream for negative attention. Stealing, lying, taking liberties I never would have dreamed of taking with my parents. It's like today's children just do not process anything. They are completely oblivious. You talk to them and you can literally see your conversation exiting their ears as they destroy one more thing in the house. Mind you, 3 boys, 1 girl, plus my 16 year old daughter. Don't get me started on her liberties. Parenting the children anytime I am not in sight. Yet, having her autistic quirks makes instructing her next to impossible. With autism, you can not change your schedule, must keep everything the same. In her view every single thing the littles do, she has to hold them accountable, yet, she expects grace when she is the one in the wrong, but never shows grace to our other children. She was also an only child until she turned 16.
Let me just say. This is one heck of a parental rollercoaster of emotions because of how my oldest thinks things should play out. When the heck did kids start getting the idea that they are in charge?! Where the heck is the respect for the parents taking care of their every entertaining thought. I would love to switch roles (freaky Friday style), just so they can feel the disrespect and hateful attitude that they give us on a daily freaking basis.
Someone relate please. I love all my children, but honestly, they're little buttholes. At times I have said as much. If a child tears at the foundation the parents have built, what reprocussion do they deserve? I mean without offending their darn delicate victimous nature? Signed a mentally exhausted Mama.
