    You can be a really nasty horrible mother like me and make excuses EVERY time they ask to have friends over

    Great thread.

    Not a SAHM, but...

    DS - homework is a drag, but if you expect me to put up with your whinging and dragging this torture out further, you should know by now that I LOSE MY COOL! and go to the toilet before bed, I am OVER wet sheets in the mornings and making your bed so often! And stop ' reminding' me of what you told me you wanted. I will deliberately delay any promise of nintendo the more times you ask!!!

    DD - leave that attitude for your teenage years. It is not amusing to me to have to fight every morning to get ready for school. If your favourite shirt is in the wash, wear another one. Playtime is after you get ready. Stop messing with your hair in the bathroom and brush your teeth! And one hug is fine. You will live without arm hugs, leg hugs and other invented hugs. Trust me.

    Ahhh. Better now!

    Apart from dealing with fights between children (well, DD and DP are both stubborn bickerers who argue with each other over hte dumbest things, so I guess I have that... lol), I totally hear you.

    I have only 1 kid to wrangle, but god is it boring. She goes to school, and I stay at home and do... what? lol. Okay, so I'm doing uni full-time from home... but it's not like I actually spend all day studying, so I have other time to just look around the house and think, "hmmm... what to do?" until I have to go pick her up from the bus stop again. I don't have a car, so I'm pretty much stuck at home... doing nothing.

    I HATE cooking dinner every effing day. I hate that part about parenting. I used to not mind, but I HAVE to do it. If it was just me and a partner, if I didn't want to cook I'd say, "get yourself something if you're hungry," but with DD, I have to prepare at least 3 meals daily for someone else... and someone who whinges and complains and doesn't care if I've spend a good part of the afternoon preparing dinner.

    I hate the park too -no I do not want to watch you. I will sit here, and read, while you climb on sh*t. I will glance up occasionally and feign interest if I have to, and yes, I will push you for a short while on those swings, but dude, you're 23kg now, there's no way in the world I am holding you up so you can use the monkey bars. Don't cry about it or we'll effing go home!

    Playdates are horrid things - I don't realise how well behaved DD is until we have other kids here. Touching my stuff. Wanting to eat the chocolate in the fridge (because they open my fridge and take their pick) that I had been saving. Wanting to touch the birds then b*tching when the birds bite them (even though I warned them). Making a mess. Leaving before it's cleaned up because they weren't taught to keep things clean at their house. Then dealing with DD whinging the playdate is over and she's got all this mess to clean (even though I help). Then nagging me that she's bored - seriously, you've got a million and one toys, choose one ffs!

    And you know DD, you might like watching Barbie movies, but I don't. The graphics annoy me, the storylines are mundane at best, and sitting there zoning out while looking at the TV is usually okay, but you talk the entire time and it seems to defeat the purpose of me sticking a DVD on in the first place - TO SHUT YOU UP FOR A WHILE!

    And look, I'm not ignoring you every damn time I ask you to repeat yourself. Don't scream at me and say I never listen. I was listening - but you're either talking to me when I'm busy, there's lots of noise (from the birds usually), or you're just not making sense and I have no idea wtf you're on about and need you to say it again in case it makes sense the 2nd time.

    As time goes on, I'm seriously thinking my uterus is about ready to shut-up shop. At just 1 kid. Yep, love babies... but babies grow up into kids that follow you around and whinge and argue and complain. Or just talk non-stop and get mad because you're only paying them half-attention.

    GAH!

    Sorry Roopee, for hogging your thread with my whinge.

    Now to figure out wtf I'm going to do for hte rest of the day... (sometimes I have a nap, just to pass hours because I dunno what else to do).
