Things That Drive Me Absolutely Crazy! (Amusing.) Moms You May Be Able To Relate To Some Or All.
Things That Drive Me Absolutely Crazy!
(Amusing.) Moms You May Be Able To Relate To Some Or All.
1) Oblivious Mothers.
Moms that don’t watch their kids while they are out, and barely ever, if ever, look over as their child is grabbing one of our sippy cups for a drink, helping themselves to a snack, deciding to take a ride on one of our bikes or scooters, deciding to knock over or smack at one of the twins and make them cry without an apology from either party, mother or child.
Sometimes the moms really don’t see by fault of their own for the simple fact that they aren’t at all watching, while other times the moms turn a blind eye in hopes you won’t notice their 6 year old just smashed into then trampled your toddler. NOT cool. Ever hear of ‘I’m SO sorry’ before? I had a three-year-old help herself to our dinner at McDonalds last week. Mom was nowhere to be found for a good 15 minutes. I’m not talking about a quick, innocent, look-away here.
2. Endless diaper changes from streakers, and accidents from untrained toddler pups.
While poo filled diapers are flung in my living room as a trail of bare asses are seen leaving the scene of the crime, I’m forever amused..(NOT). It’s not always poop, but I will say we go through about 15 diapers a day this way. Most of the time they are barely, if at all wet even. (I have a photo, but you might not need nor want the visual aid.)
The poo ones are a pleasure to clean up when they land the wrong way! (Face down.) The crouch ’n pee is a classic in our home when you don’t run fast enough. I don’t know who is worse, the babies or our Pug!?!
3. Moms that don’t teach their children to share and take turns.
You are out at the playground waiting a good half hour for your child or children to get a chance to say use the swings, and the moms are gabbing away, knowing you are waiting but don’t ever say, ”Janie, you have been on long enough, there is a line here. Let someone else have a turn.” God forbid.
Yesterday, I was mumbling under my breath to two such mothers as I waited while their children forever monopolized the swings at the park. I never do that to other people, nor would allow my children to. It’s rude.
4. Dads that hit on other women in front of their wives and/or kids.
Nothing makes me sicker then a father with his children and sometimes even his wife to, that stares at you or attempts to even talk to you while out and about with his family. It’s the most sleazy thing ever, and quite frankly my husband would lose one very important appendage if I ever caught him even just what I feel is gawking at another mother at the park. (Anywhere for that matter.)
Have some self-respect and respect for your family man! (Not all men do this for the record. Just wanted to add that. It’s the gross few that can at times give husbands a bad name.)
5. When people buy age-inappropriate gifts for our tiny tykes.
I just hate it when people buy 1 and 2 year old toddlers gifts that clearly are marked for at least ages 3 and up, and are choking hazards for those who are under 3. Do they not glance at the box before they buy? I know I always do. Then you store it away someplace to never be seen again. Maybe by the time they’re off to college. (Maybe.)
6. Getting asked the same question over and over and over again.
If only it was limited to ‘Are we there yet?’ That I can almost stand, but when it’s all day long and seemingly endless, it can get really freakin’ annoying. I know all of those toddler ‘What’s thats’ are coming. It can be a slight pain at times, but it’s allowable at such tender ages as curious minds need answers. However, man as they grow up it’s like PLEASE..silencio por favor.
‘Why not?’ Because I said so. ‘Why not?’…did you not catch that last FINAL answer? It’s certainly not going to change by further pushing my buttons. I don’t remember groveling to my parents like my kids do now. I swear raising children has gotten harder. Our parents should never complain. It’s happening to me as I type right now. ‘In a few minutes….in a few minutes.’ Nobody gets that!
More random things I can’t stand
1. Bad lighting in dressing rooms.
2. People who stare in general.
I hate trying to wonder what they are thinking. I try to never do that.
3. Nuts in ice cream.
(It’s a personal thing .)
4. Kid’s dirty fingers in my food.
5. Being used as a human napkin.
6. People that don’t adore Betty White .
7. When you get take-out food home and find out there are order mistakes, missing items, lack of condiments, etc.
8. Nasty people who have no valid reason to be nasty.
9. Retail price tags without red sale lines through them.
10. A significant other or husband who expects us to, yet then don’t do the same…clean yourself up BEFORE sex takes place!!
11. Kids that can’t even hang up their jackets. I have some of those. Two are allowed!
(Actually, my 25 month old toddlers are better at cleaning up than their older siblings.)
12. Heavy, painful periods.
(This is one time as a woman where I feel being a bitch is allowed, and completely understandable. That %$%# HURTS!!!)
If men only knew!
And since I am being hounded right now by one of my children with that same question stated above..AGAIN, I must cut my list short here. (Though I could go on and on all day long .)
What drives YOU crazy?
Happy almost Easter!
