The Thanksgiving break was a NIGHTMARE! Well not totally, having the family get together is always nice and it’s nice to spend that quality time with the ones you love, and hey – the food is always a plus, but the kids being home all week, is the kink in the chain.
You see, my kids fight about everything. I’m sure most kids with siblings do the same exact things as mine, but good lord already, they fight about some stuff that doesn’t make sense to me. I think they like to argue and fight, I bet they sit up at night making lists of things that they can do to piss the other one off. These are some of the things argued or fought over last week: socks, old toys that haven’t been played with in over a year ( but because one of the kids found it, now they both want to play with it), hot dogs, fish (my daughter wants fish because my son has an aquarium), who gets to the front door first when we get home, and so on and so forth. It’s a struggle especially when you are juggling a 2 year old who has a cold and demands that you hold her every second of the day.
With that being said, this morning was one of the best days I’ve had since the last day of summer break, because I had the pleasure of dropping both of my kids off at school, and I don’t even feel the least bit bad about it. Now does that make me a bad parent? In the eyes of some it does, but mentally I was ready for a break, and I have to prepare myself for the upcoming 2 weeks they will have off for Christmas break, and I’m really dreading that.
So today I’m back at it, and my whole mission today is to keep a clean house and my sanity at the same time. Wish me luck.
