*Head, Wall, Bang* Lather, Rinse, Repeat

This is a sweary, stabby kind of post. You have been warned.

Sweet suffering FUCK, people.

I want to write. Really, I do. I have things I want to say, ideas that are floating around in my head, but I can't write them down. Not because I don't want anyone else to see them but because my girls have gone absolutely BATSHIT CRAZY.

They run. All the time. Everywhere. They jump. They scream, at each other, at the clouds, at the dog, at motes of dust. They make massive messes and scream when I ask them to pick them up. They hit each other, they hug each other, they poke each other in the eyes. They're starving, all the time, even immediately after eating.

It is driving me INFUCKINGSANE..

I spend most of my days repeating myself endlessly. "Stop hitting. Stop jumping. Stop dragging the cat around by his neck. Put your shoes on. Put your pants on. Stop chopping off your hair. Stop sticking beads up your nose. For the love of god and all that is holy, STOP SCREAMING!"

I am losing the will to live.

And in a few days, we have to go on a very, very long trip with them.

Please. Send vodka. Or tranquilizers. Or both.

good luck and have a very safe trip! i'm sure there's alcohol where ever it is you are going!

cherry vodka & pomegranate crystal light. Very good combo.

As for the screaming et al - sounds like what happens when I get Ally and my nephew together. I couldn't even imagine living w/ it.

Are they both in preschool now?

I could be all supportive of you but my boys are 11 and 13.. and they are still doing all that and I am still a broken record of.. "Stop that, put that down, stop hitting your brother, stop swinging from the rafters! Stop texting! Stop IT!"

But it's all worth it, when they are sleeping. :o)

Most of the time the fact that I don't have kids really bums me out. But then I read something like what you wrote, and I think, "Hey... not so bad."

Wait, I expected more swears. Have you ever tried reverse psychology and acted just like them? Try it, it's fun and it will freak them out big time...

I understand. I really do.

Sending you virtual liquor. Lots of it.

Ugh, I feel your pain. My kids are 13 months apart in age. They are 11 and 12 now and this chaos still goes on- not as bad as it once was but pretty close! I am not looking forward to tons 'o togetherness over the winter break.

Sarahtoo said...

Wow, and yikes. I want a drink just reading this! I hope they have LOTS of booze where you're going...where are you going?

Mmm, cherry vodka & pomegranate Crystal Light--I'm totally going to try that!

Keep on keepin' on--it's gotta get better, right? Right?

Duct tape and chloroform?

I wish you luck and hope you find something that works soon!!
