OH MY GOD YOU HAVE TO READ THIS!!
This is WHY I have been such a failure as a mother. I drink wine while my kids are around and I did not make a list of rules when they were born. Damn! Can I get a do over? C'mon...I deserve a do over.
This woman is free to raise her children in whatever manner she chooses. I have no argument with that. However, when you're asking someone else to watch your children for 3 nights, I'm not sure if you have the right to dictate what that person consumes. Yes, you have the right to ask Grandma not to get shit faced and start pole dancing in front of your child, but a glass of wine with dinner is not allowed? I think she needs to accept that Grandma has the right to tell her to take a flying fucking leap off the nearest bridge, that or hire a babysitter. My opinion....for what it's worth.
On your comments to my last post:
Heather - I think you and I may have been twins seperated at birth. I bet we even look alike . You say shit on your blog that gives me the willies because it is so similar to the way I think. Plus we swear alot.
Daffy - As I said in my email, I have fantasies of running a bootcamp for deliquent teens....kick some sense into them through the sheer force of my will. Daffy said it would make a good reality show.
Vinomom - I have a girl...she's 11 and you know the whole world will hear our fights because they will be furious. Why you ask? Because she is her mother out and out. She talks, walks, thinks, like me. It scares the absolute shit out of me. You need to be firm...it's all about being a hardass. Yeah, kids screw up, we all do, but if you're going to mouth off and be rude, there will be consequences.
Jacob - as I said in my email kids these days expect to get paid for getting out of bed in the morning. My children do not get an allowance. They both get copious amounts of money thrown at them by Ex's parents and grandparents. Ex pays them to do things like putting in the wood in the winter, mowing the lawn. They don't need my hard earned money. Damn brats cost me a small mortgage payment just to feed them every month.
Jennifer - damn straight hubby should be afraid of you!
Toni - Are you being sarcastic? You are, aren't you? I don't consider myself a good mom. I think I'm too much of a hardass sometimes. I've spanked one of my children in 17 years of parenting. My oldest (ironic no?), when he was 12 years old he told me to fuck off. I grabbed him and slapped his ass twice with my bare hand. My anger scared him more than my the slap on the ass. Fire coming out of my ears anger. I know, I know, the parenting books tell us we're not supposed to get angry at our children. I should have hugged him and asked him what was making him upset, explained to him that those words hurt mommy's feelings and then given him some money so he could go to the movies. Yeah, fuck that shit. He has never said those words to me again.
I love your comments. They make me as giddy as a fine bottle of merlot.
