The Joys of Being a Parent!
Ok, so last night,got home late and Grace woke up and was hysterical. Had to bring her to bed with me.Once she was asleep and I was settled, it was now 1 am. Yikes.I was so tired. Maybe I'd be able to sleep in.
Nope, silly me Ethan woke up at 6:30.Crazy since he got to bed after 10. Oh well. I was hoping to get a nap a little later. So at 11:30 I go lay down with him for a nap and Rachelle calls me to come pick her up from her friends house.Dang~there goes my nap!
So, once I get her Zach and Rachelle are complaining we have nothing in the house that looks good to eat, so of course I have to go to Taco Bell and get them some food. I give in and go get some food.
After a little while, I get a call from Hannah. She needs me to go pick her up at her friends house now. Ughh ok.
I get Hannah, get home and Rachelle now tells me I have to take her to the movie.Oh and by the way Zach is going to the movies too, another theater of course and I need to drive him.One more thing the movie she wants to see is rated R but only for violence so I need to buy the ticket for her. WHAT??? UH NO!!!After a nice lengthy argument of her telling me how unfair as parents we are Zach chimes in. I guess I am a unreasonable parent who doesn't let my kids do anything!
Anyhow I took them both to different theaters. Dropped them off was told when to pick them up and told I was also giving a few kids rides home too. Rachelle as she is getting out of the car (for a rated pg13 movie)with tears in her eyes tells me "this is going to suck" and slams the door.
I hate what a mean mom I am! Like I said ~ Oh the joys of being a parent!
