Tales of a Teenage Drama Queen.

Gotta love em when they are teenagers, I tell you...Ok sometimes not..but we are supposed too..

I have the ORIGINAL drama queen my friends...12 years old and a drama queen..so much so today she accused me of *child abuse*..Yes I am an Abuser...at least if an abuser does such things like:

~~ expect her to do her chores..and the *gasp* first time I ask

~~ expect her to do her homework.

~~ expect her not to talk back...

~~ expect no lying and stealing.

~~ expect well nothing else..gosh she's right I am sooooo mean..probably deserve that mean mother award...Toni you can sent that over anytime you want.

So, what may you ask preceded this *child abuse* charge. Well...she actually went to school and cried and told the teachers I slap her and pull her hair...

BUT WAIT she told two different teachers two entirely different stories. OH yes...HELLO rule number one..stick to one story....

Anyhow there I was called and told I had to go to family advocacy..(again...) and I called family advocacy and told them straight up.."If I couldn't discipline my daughter and she could throw around any old accusation then I was packing her shit and bringing her to them..." Yes I DID..

Did I make her pack her bag: Your damn tootin I did...this is a power struggle if SHE thinks she is going to win..she is sadly mistaken..

What happened at family advocacy you ask??? Well, he (the counselor) got that she was a drama queen and basically said I had to not help her with her drama..blah, blah, blah..and that he felt she was a difficult child...I wanted to say "you think????"

Then he brought both of us together and basically told her I was the mother and she was the child...PERIOD.FINITO.END OF SENTENCE and she needed to listen to what I said and do what I told her too.

VINDICATION is so sweet my bloggy friends...

Confession time here: I soooo want to pull her hair and slap her so she knows what it feels like though..but instead I'll go take a HOT bath and eat a candy bar.

Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day is here again. It is the day we choose to remember all those before us who have fought for us...To make us who we are, To make us how we are.

So, I'm going to make it short and sweet and take a minute to remember those who came before us who fought for us and those who are fighting for us now.

Friday's Feast One Hundred Fourty Five (Number One for me!!)

Name a sound you like to hear.

I know I know so cliche, but I love love love to hear the sound of the babies laughing...oh and the ocean...oh and silence at times too..hmm I guess that was more than one..go with the first if we must.

What is your favorite kind of cheese?

I'm not really a cheesy person (hahaha)but I guess I would have to go with Mozerella. yumm-o

Do you sleep late on Saturday mornings? Why or why not?

I *try* to sleep late every morning, but yes...I have 3 kids I'm tired...very very tired.

Main Course
When was the last time you forgot something? What was it, and how long did it take to remember it?

Last time I forgot something??? Heck I'm probably forgetting something right now..It's not so much I *forget* but it's I don't realize what time it is or what I'm supposed to be doing...OHHH now I know I forgot to pay my flippin phone bill and they turned off my ability to dial out (not that that's hurt me at all..I don't really call anyone)...I remembered when I saw the phone place.

Fill in the blank: I notice ____________ when _____________.

I notice a person's eye's when they smile. I know cheesy but I do...I love to see a person smile with their whole person. And I've noticed that if you look into a person's eyes that's where the real smile is..

I knew it was going to be a B.A.D. day from the time I woke up (was woken up rather rudely--I'll have you know) by Lizzie who turned on my light at 5 (flippin) thirty this morning with a "mommy you've slept enough"...I said No my dear I haven't come watch TV in mommy's room...

From there it went something like this:

~~Wake up and realize wow my back hurts, my throat hurts, my ears are ringing..Oh SHIT I think I'm getting sick..I don't have time to get sick...grab two aspirin and pretend I feel fine...

~~Go to the post office to send a box to Steven and OF COURSE they were out of boxes, tape,etc..so I had to go get said items..

~~Go get said items and my total at checkout was $6.66 (no kidding..) now I'm not superstitious but HELLO even I'm not going to mess with that one..quick grab another candy bar (like I needed another candy bar)

~~OH yeah and my house looks like *ASS right now..I need to clean and I don't feel good...OH AND NO CHOCOLATE IN THE DAMN HOUSE...

Spotlight Sunday

In my Spotlight for today is Kristin of Motherhood Uncensored
. She probably doesn't need me to spotlight her as she's one of the 'biggies' in the blogging world. She's an Air Force Spouse living with her in-laws (oh girl I do not envy you) and has two young kids. She talks about everything on her blog and I do mean EVERYTHING..

Go check her out.

To Make or Not to Make that is the Question?

Another post about Katherine..anyone seeing a pattern here???

See she is in Civil Air Patrol and doesn't really want to do it anymore...I'm not actually sure she wanted to do it in the first place...I think her father did and she wanted to make daddy happy.

I asked her her reasons for not wanting to do it and they were:

1) Daddy's not here..no sense in it.

2) I can't have pink hair...(oh yeah that was a selling point for me)

3) But MOMMMMMMMM.....

So, here the question became...

Is it because there really aren't any girls in it...it's all boys..

Do you not want to do it because you...gasp....have to run and be active?

Do you not want to do it because you have to study for tests....(and we ALL know school isn't her strong suit)

Do you not want to do it because you'd rather laze around the house???

Now, we know me I'm all about not taking her...I don't have to go to the place (about 30 minutes away) and stay there for 2 1/2 hours finding something for the younger ones to do while waiting on her. Heck, I'd rather stay home and clean watch TV also....but she did promise her father a year..and it hasn't been that..

Oh what to do ....what to do.....

The Curse

You know the one I'm talking about...The one every mother gives to their offspring when we are being exceptionally bad...

'I hope you have one just like you'

See, I knew my mother was a witch for a long time..it wasn't just the evil eye, the seeing what I was doing around corners, the way she was able to look at me when I came in and know I had been up to something. It was her ability to turn her head around three times and puke green (oh wait that may have been the excorcist...anyways...)

Her curse has come true..according to her at least..

She says Kat gets her mouth and attitude from me..I don't remember being this mouthy when I was younger..I'm sure IF I had I would've been knocked into next week -- or my teeth would've been knocked out of my head.

She says I didn't like to clean either..but I did..oh did I...again..If I was as lazy as her I would've been knocked clear into next week..(do we see a pattern emerging here?) Heck I don't like to clean now but it's not like I ask her to do much..a little cleaning every day..goes a long way..

As for Lizzie and Connor..if that was anyone's curse it was Steven's...I was NEVER that bad..I'm telling you...

Anyhow...how's that curse working out for you?

Monday Monday

Oh did I mention it was monday yet???

Let's see where were we??? Oh yep Monday.

The weekend was ok here...went to a kids party at 'happyland' on Sat...kids enjoyed it. Mom was unconditionally bored.

Sunday went to church..It was a nice service.

Boy am I B.O.R.I.N.G. seriously

Well, that's a toothbrush down the drain..Connor seems to think my toothbrush is the ideal thing to brush his feet, toes, chest and ummmm male parts..lucky me...

Tell me a story....something..

Forgive Me

Forgive me my bloggy friends for I have sinned:

I haven't been on here lately because I've been having a pity party for one. You see my friends..Steven has left for FOUR freaking months to the sandbox..and left me with the devil's spawn.

They are already starting awful--I mean it can only get better from here on right??? First thing yesterday I asked Lizzie to pick up her toys and put them away and gave her 30 minutes...Did she do it?? OF course not silly's..So, I took them down to the basement and told her I threw them away. (I'll give em back in about two weeks or so.) And Katherine OMG. I asked her to help me by picking up the living room floor so I can start on the 'daddy's gone..let's clean up the house REALLY good while he's not going through my trash bag..insisting he NEEDS this stuff cleaning' and it took her OVER an hour to pick up a small stretch of floor..ughhhh

Then S got to come home for the night and we went to a last dinner with friends and left the kids here..and they went W.I.L.D. No kiddding..Kat was throwing cans of coke off of my balcony because she was "bored" ughhhhh...Grounded already?? I hope that this is their acting up and they'll get better or???

Ok back to pity party..table for one please.

Sunday, May 06, 2007

In the Spotlight today is my very own sister...Jennifer

Jennifer is well my sister...She's a mother of two...(and yes Jennifer we CAN trade Ari for Katherine. I'll take Kat back when she's ohhh 18 and if I like her she can stay.) Jennifer is going back to school, umm dealing with the devil..(I mean my mother). And doesn't blog nearly as much as she should..

Go visit her and say HI..from me.

So, at what age did your kiddos start babysitting?

Katherine SHOULD be able to babysit now..She's 12 and has taken the Red Cross (required) babysitting course. But, she can't--we have a hard time trusting her to watch herself ...no less her sister and brother (referred to from here on as the demon spawn).

I remember when I was her age I was babysitting like a mofo...all the neighborhood kids. For HOURS UPON HOURS UPON HOURS...I had quite the business. All kinds of money to spend..well, you know the drill

Katherine on the other hand cannot be trusted. She blames it on the demon spawn. I blame it on her immaturity and unability (is that a word??) to keep her nose out of a book or her eyes off the television set for more than oh say 20 seconds and therefore, the demon spawn tend to do things like get into the sugar and throw it ALL OVER THE FLIPPIN KITCHEN, take out EVERY toy they have into the livingroom, TAKE out all the movies out of my cabinets. Well, you get the idea.

She wants me to trust her to watch the demon spawn (I told you I was referring to them as that the rest of the post...don't judge) and be PAID...(Do I seriously have to pay my own child...you know the one I feed, clothe, etc. to do this???) hahatrust?? I'm pretty sure I would come back to Katherine tied (or duct taped) to one of the chairs and the spawn standing over her with a sword.

Tell me oh great internet friends....what to do oh what to do????

Ok admit it we are all stressed at times. Me more than others since I live with "they who can destroy the house in 30 seconds flat..."...(seriously they can). Add that to the fact I have become 'she who does not know how to say NO to people' and I have a PROBLEM. At least one of my stress factors is gone (bye bye Stats class..) I only have 362 others to take it's place...I ran across this on the internet (or email..who know) the other day and thought hmmm good advice.

The Ten Commandments to a Stress free Life.
1. You shall not be perfect, or even try to be. ~~ Got that one down to a tee..

2. You shall not try to be all things to all people.

3. You shall sometimes leave things undone. ~~Yes and then inevitably some idiot will show up at the house and boom you're a 'dirty person'

4. You shall not spread yourself too thin.

5. You shall learn to say “no”.

6. You shall schedule time for yourself. ~~Yep I'll work on that one...oh but wait in scheduling time for yourself remember babysitting is $5/hr per kid.

7. You shall switch yourself off, and do nothing regularly. ~~ no problemo

8. You shall not even feel guilty for doing nothing, or saying no. ~~even when people give you the 'sad' face.

9. You shall be boring, untidy, inelegant, and unattractive at times. ~~oh yeah I have that one down...seriously if I don't have to get dressed..well you can see where this is going.

10. You shall not be your own worst enemy. But, be your own best friend. ~~Well I have to since I don't have a 'best' friend..shoot sometimes I feel I don't have friends at all
