The Mommy Who Thinks You Are An Idiot

************************************************************

Dear Trace Adkins,

I love the song "You're Gonna Miss This". It really is very touching. You did a great job with it. Although, if I may make a suggestion.... you may want to think about changing that one little line about "one kid crying, one kid screaming". I am gonna miss a lot of things about my kids as they grow, but that my dear man I will not miss. Not one single bit. I live that line every single day, as I am sure millions of other Mom's do too. Do you know what it is like to be home alone all day with a two year old and a newborn? There are many times I get to listen to "one kid crying, one kid screaming" and it is never music to my ears. Ever. It is stressful and tears a Mommy's heart to pieces. It makes you feel very helpless and you begin to doubt your parenting skills. Why on earth would I miss that? Good song though. Can't say I haven't shed a tear or two while listening to it.

Thoughtfully,

A Mommy Who Will Miss Everything But That

*********************************************************************

Dear Lula Mae,

I am so glad you are eating a few more foods! That is very helpful and I really appreciate it. You are too smart for your own good though little miss. No means no. It doesn't mean maybe, and it will never mean yes. When I tell you "please don't say 'no' to Mommy" saying 'no' is the last thing that should come out of your mouth. Mommy always wins sweet girl. I can play that game all day. I don't really want to, but I will if you force me to. I know you don't understand now, but someday you will. I don't want to see you on Americas Most Wanted so I am determined to win every single battle. I will not pick my battles. Just so you know. Here are a few tips for you: 1) whining gets you nothing in this house 2) back talk gets you a sore thigh/bottom 3) deliberate disobedience will never be tolerated. You can read the sentence "I will listen and obey"... so instead of just reading it, how about live it? Your Daddy and I know that your highs are high and your lows are low. Lets hurry up and get out of this low, okay? We prefer the highs! I love you and we will get past this my dear!

Love,

Your Very, Very, Very Tired Mommy

Yeah, so the hands, just strange. And way to go Lula on the intake of more varieties of food:-)I so totally agree with the 1, 2 and 3--that are the long standing no no's in my house.

Kameron said...

I agree with you on that song! I'm finally out of the newborn stage, and I must say I do not miss that part of it one bit!

Oh and don't even get me started on those hands! What the what??

Those hands are really very strange that's for sure. Weird. Those 3 rules are rules in our house too...I can't stand whininig...it's like nails on a chalkboard to my ears...ouch. I make that very clear the first week in my kinder class too!!

Jennifer Juniper said...

Whaat?? The fake hands are way creepy..

I'm a pick your battles kind of Mom, but if I picked it, I WILL win it.

Foursons said...

I'm with Jennifer, the hands are very creepy and they don't look like they feel like skin, so I don't see how they would work very well.

I don't think I've heard that song, but I agree with you on the lyrics. What was the writer thinking?

Yay for new foods. Hopefully your sweet girl will get back to her high's soon.

Thanks for linking up!

I love that song. But you know when we have teenagers and they are fighting and crying still, we might miss this stage's crying and screaming :)

He & Me + 3 said...

Love that song too...not going to miss the fit throwing or the crying and screaming in effort to get their own way. Grrr. Going through that stage right now...nope...not gonna miss it.
I am sorry...but the fake hands are hilarious and who would buy them?

HeatherOz said...

Seriously? What are those weird hands supposed to be used for?

Ashley InmanRinger said...

The fake hands were designed by a parent who had a baby in the NICU, If I remember correctly, They are ment to be placed in an isolet when the parent cannot be there to hold the baby. The mothers are supposred to wear them in their shirt for a few hours so their scent can rub off on them, and the nurses place them on the baby. We used them when we had to return to greenwood several times right after the girls were born. It really did reduce the number of complications they had.

i do aggree that they are kind of creapy- but they do work.
