Have I mentioned that I'm lazy?
Too lazy to enforce any kind of rules, boundaries, or healthy eating habits.
Max's favorite food right now is "drop gums". (GUM DROPS...both of my children may or may not be dyslexic.)
Both children have been testing the waters to see just how late I will let them sleep in. Unless I am feeling super motivated and determined to make it to the gym, I have been tip toeing around the house until they roll out of bed at 10:30.
Gwen wonders why she doesn't get lunch before I take her to school. It is super hard to fit breakfast, lunch and basic hygiene into an hour.
When I threatened Gwen with some sort of consequence the other day she said under her breath, "You'll forget."
The disrespect has already begun.
She doesn't realize yet that mothers never forget.
But sometimes it is just easier to clean their rooms ourselves.
It is easier to pull them into our beds at 2 a.m. than to carry them back to their own....5 times a night.
Sometimes 3 hours of quiet time with webkinz is easier than entertaining them ourselves.
And frosting on anything is always better received than real food....at least at my house.
Stay tuned for some of my latest realizations, such as:
Now I know why my parents hated me
Oh...my mom wasn't stupid
I don't love the sound of crying...especially in the middle of the night
Maybe two kids is enough for me
