OK, So I've been away for a bit, I think life and my bloody hardears pickney dem got in the way for a bit. Oh how I hate summer holidays. I would absolutely love over 6 weeks with my kids literally up underneath me if I was rich and was jetting off to some fancy exotic location and staying in some luxury hotel with a fantastic kids club. But no, *insert crying emoji, not the tear drop one either, the bawling one* But now the school terms started back and life is semi normal (well as normal as it can be in my yard) so I thought let me get a blog post in, plus, I have some child related stuff to rant about.
So Miss madam Cali... actually No let me start with both of them (cuz I have a long rant about that one) For some reason they both seem to have regressed ridiculously. It's almost like they're toddlers again, when they're actually closer to 8 and 9. Like when they were toddlers they never went digging in the cupboard under the sink and tried to eat washing up liquid or swallow the bleach in the bathroom or pull down too many fuckeries. But now OMG they're always in something, they do so really dumb/dangerous/unbelievable things. Now their little cousin had an experience with an open window.. so I'm very very anal about them flipping the latches and opening the window wide. So what do they do, not only open the window wide but lean out and shout down to their friends. I' always like ARE YOU TRYING TO DIE!!!!
They're also now troubling the cleaning products I keep beside the toilet, actually let me just make a list of the stuff they're doing
1. Squeezing toothpaste on the wall
2. Walking out of their clothes and leaving them in a trail (apparently Im their maid and will pick it up, they NEVER used to do this)
3. Troubling things in the cupboard under the sink
4. Sneaking chocolates (that I put up very high) in their room then allowing it to melt under their pillow then waking up with it everywhere
5. Not sleeping at night as apparently their bedtime is 10pm
6. Eating food and simply throwing the wrappers or remains on the floor
7. Refusing to brush teeth or shower, I have no clue how they think they're not gonna get forced to do both...
8. Writing on walls
9. Messing up literally everywhere and when I say to tidy they make an even bigger mess which makes me loose my mind
Oh and the best one after breaking my Wii they dropped my TV out their bedroom window.
They have both been on punishment for a week, Calis has been extended to 2 as shes waaaay too rude and spiteful for my liking and I'm determined to make her change her stink attitude.
OK Now onto Miss madam OMG is this child rude, she thinks me and her (and every adult) are size (if you're not Caribbean that basically means she thinks shes grown and on my level) She backchats, she goes out of her way to try make you look stupid either with her actions or a smart ass comment, she likes to try argue with you. Shes super spiteful (but then so is her dad) horrible to RD and very manipulative. She's not nice to you unless she wants something from you. She happily ignores everyone including her friends when they say Hi, she will blatantly just not talk to you. She'll cut you off and talk over you and basically be a grumpy little shit, at one point I even gave her a bly thinking she may be due to start her period cuz I started mine really early. Oh and you can't tell her what to do apparently because she feels she will do what she wants when she wants. She also likes to kick off with the grandparents when they tell her No.
Recently shes been acting like a proper entitled spoilt brat and the joke is I don't even spoil her my bloody parents do, especially my dad. So all last week and this week I've been working with her to correct her behaviour because it's just not gonna fly with me. The thing is she doesn't get away with anything with me, yet she still tries it anywayz. It's proper draining but she is gonna change.
Like I said it's been a week so far so she has one more week to go but today she behaved, spoke nicely and actually smiled (this child is always moody) and gave me a morning hug and she actually demonstrated manners without me screaming WHAT DO YOU SAY?!lol
But yes this is what's been taking up all my energy
Oh the joys of single motherhood.....
