is it over yet?
i'm fairly certain i've had enough today. i try not to put specifics on here about how irritated i can get with the kids. but today, i am breaking that rule. big time.
-spilled bottle of RED nail polish all over my bathroom and youngest. i didn't realize she had the bottle, nor that she could twist tops open. who knew?
-someone old enough to know better (not me) wet their pants for the 2nd time since starting school.
-someone stood in their room, took a toy bin, emptied it and peed in it.
i did what i knew to do. i called in reinforcement. i called "pop" and asked him to participate in shaming my child (cause i knew telling pop what he did would be punishment enough...well, after taking the tv away for a week.) what i didn't expect was what he told pop (and micah that i didn't hear.) when asked why he did what he did he said "cause i'm stupid." *siiiigh*
have mercy. what i said was "why did you do that? that was stupid." i guess the lesson i learned is that a 4 year old doesn't know the different between his actions and himself. so yeah, mama had to eat some words today. not the first time. not the last.
does anyone have the number for the valium hotline? cause i need it.
