Some days parenting really bites the big one

The boys and I had a rough night.
Fighting.
Cursing.
Not listening.
Them, not me
I just couldn't take it anymore.
So they were sent to bed at 6pm.
And while in their room, they wrote me some letters, folded the papers up into a paper airplane and threw them downstairs.
This is what they said.

I am going to keep these letters.
And when they have their own children, I may just bring these out, and let them know I understand how tough parenting is.


And then I will go home to my quiet house.

Sorry, but this made me laugh. The part about how some day you'll go home to your quiet house. You know how to tell a story. =)

Sometimes it is truly a thankless job.

Oh yes, save the evidence for use at a later time. That's always my motto.

Ah, Momma that is not good. I am sorry.

I am sure that my time will come too.

I hope wine helped.

Did they send the apology note at the same time as the other 2?

Looks like a good reason to not teach kids how to write. :)

Save them. They will make you laugh in a couple of months. :)

I'm sorry but this cracked me up. Surely you see the humor in these now...

I am so glad that I am not the only mom who is being hated by her children this week. Thank you for sharing.
