I love my darling, sweet, intelligent, good looking children.

All 3 of them.

But they do things that annoy me.


I know. I am their mother and should love them unconditionally no matter what horrible, disgusting, annoying things they do.

And I do.

But they still annoy me at times.

Princess likes to wipe her mouth clean after every spoonful of mushy food goes into her mouth. and if there is no evidence of food on her hand, then she sticks her fingers in her mouth...while the food is still in there.

Messy calls me "Old Lady" and says "Blah blah blah". All.Of.The.Time. I can only ignore it for so long before I want to do the ugly cry and tell him that "I am not old" and he will "realize it one day when he hits his thirties". Oh wait. I have already said that. Now I just want to hide in a corner and pound my head against the wall. I also want to shout "blah, blah, blah" in his face when he is telling me something very important and being friendly for once. Just so he knows how it feels. Seven year old attitude sucks big time. How will I ever survive the teenage years?

And Rowdy. He wipes his boogers on his pants.

"Rowdy, go change your pants before we go out because they are dirty."

"No, Mom. They aren't dirty. I just wiped a booger on them."

He also eats a package of gummies. All at once. He opens the package and puts all 14 of the little buggers in his mouth at once.

It drives me insane.

One day he will realize that sucking them one at a time lasts longer than shoving them all in at once.

Orrrrrrrrrr, he will realize that Momma using the Heimlich Maneuver on him is not enjoyable.

Yep, your kids annoying habits would bug me too! I think I would go bla bla bla back. Does that make me immature. Maybe. But I think I'd feel better. It's a good thing for all the wonderful perspective we mothers have when it comes to our children and that we can see all the good things and all the good potential too. And ... it's wonderful to have a sense of humor!

We are living the same life!!!

What is with the food shoveling??? My 15 year old still does it!

My 13 year old spits everywhere... ONCE IN THE HOUSE! I almost made him lick it up... THANK GOD we have tile floors.

My 10 yr old...ugh... too gross to say.

Isn't that the job of a kid, to annoy the parents. And isn't that why we keep wine in the house? ;)

Wow...I thought I was the only mother who's kids annoy them...out of total love and respect I'm sure! It's comforting to know you are a bad mother too:)

I don't think as a mother you ever get used to your children's quirks and Rowdy may never learn to eat gummies one by one.

I'm an adult and I still don't have patience to suck on tootsie roll pop. I start biting right away to get to the center!

This is too funny! See these are the kinds of things my husband should read. He thinks he is ready for kids and I am like Oh.please.not.just.yet.
