My youngest son, Aaron, is going through a rough period. He argues with me on everything. He disagrees with everyone. When things don't go his way, he has a meltdown or a fit. I absolutely will not allow him to argue with me and I am almost constantly setting parameters or taking away privileges. He is wearing me out! I also will not put up with the fits. He has been sent to bed early regularly. Right now he has lost TV, computer, and video game access for the rest of the evening. (repeating to myself: I will not raise a spoiled brat, I will not raise a spoiled brat, I will not raise a spoiled brat or I will die trying to prevent it.....)
I. Am. Going. Crazy.
One hair at a time. Why does the youngest have to be the most difficult? If I don't kill him, his brother might.
I'm hear to tell you - it's him or me, and I'm not going down without a fight!
And now, on a more pleasant note: Manic Monday questions -
What’s one of the simple pleasures in your life? Snuggling on the couch, watching TV or a movie, with Steven. Reading the Sunday paper. Listening to music alone in my room after everyone has gone to bed. Sweet tea.
What do you like to snack on when you watch a movie? If it’s at the movie theater, I like to have a Diet Coke and some Goobers. At home, I'm likely to have some Bailey's and coffee or hot chocolate.
If you were a Survivor contestant, what would be your luxury item? Well, I would never be on Survivor. I'm not a good outdoors person, and I like my creature comforts like a bathroom and my bed. But my luxury item would be an air mattress. I hate sleeping on the ground on the floor or the ground.
Hope your Monday was calmer than mine.
