    I took the kids ice skating the other day and DD had a bad attitude sulky tanty like she ALWAYS (seriously, always ) does and was ruining our day out. I tried and tried to be all upbeat and distract her and be happy and smiling but it wasn't working because, well, it never does with her, so I stopped in the middle of the ice skating rink with people all around (and it wasn't disco, so the lights were on and no loud music) and yelled at her to snap out of it and stop ruining our day because she's making everyone miserable.

    And I don't care what people think because a) I took three kids ice skating on my own, I deserve a bl00dy medal just for doing that; and b) she seriously is always ruining our days out by having a sulky tantrum at the drop of a hat.


    Oooh oh I have another one. Yesterday I was forced into getting in the car and driving 2.5 hours somewhere then 2.5 back again (long story, but it wasn't fun). On our way home we stopped and got Maccas for dinner (no no, that's not my bad mummy moment ), anyway, we were getting back in the car and almost-11yo got in and 6yo was following straight behind, reached out to grab the door, and 11yo pulled the door shut! 6yo's finger was shut completely in the door, and my reaction infront of a mob of teens and some other travel-weary families in the carpark was to scream "DS1 you just slammed his f###ing finger in the door!!". I think there was another f word or 2 in there but can't remember what for, it was all a bit gory to focus on nice language.

    Arghhhh I love school holidays I swear!

    Oh yeah. On our holiday I decided to go to the 7eleven for some happy hour stuff (crackers, dips) to go with wine o'clock and DD wanted to come for the walk. I knew she was tired but took her for the 1 block walk. In the store she spotted some water balloons and decided she had to have them, I said no, she lost her shiz, I just wanted to get to the counter to put my stuff down but couldn't catch her and I was worried she would go out the door while I was putting the stuff down. Finally managed to grab her and carried her to the counter and the guy behind the counter says "you're more patient than I am. Back in my day we were allowed to smack out kids and they never played up". Thanks for the parenting advice with my overpriced jatz, mate.

    Today at the shoes my DS was pestering me to hold the paints I just bought, only there were 10 messier tubes and I had them in a bag with a few other things, I calmly told him to relax and he could hold the paints when he got home, then he was happy and there was sunshine and lollipops, JUST JOKING he started having a major melt down about it so I screamed at him in the middle of the fruit shop 'fine, just HOLD THE FRIGGING BAG THEN' and shoved it his direction, then I went and his under my rock (got in my car) embarrassed

    Last week whenwe went to bilo DS decided to sit in car with DP & wait while dd & I went into get a few things. Dd decided she wanted to walk I said no (she's a runner) putting her in the trolley was like putting a cat I. A bath tub complete with the arched back screaming etc finally get her in the trolley after a good 3-4 mins of this with every check out lady staring at me. She continues to scream hysterically over having to sit in the trolley (the big part not the seat). As I'm putting things in the trolley she's still screaming trying to climb out & throwing things out of the trolley. An older man comes up to me & says to DD "dont worry mate I hate shopping too" whilst I'm getting disapproving looks from everyone. I finally get to the check out with DD still screaming as I'm getting my wallet open she shoves it out of my hand & goes flying coins n notes everywhere & I smack her hand the check out lady gives me a foul look as I try to get my money off the floor & keep DD. In the trolley with other hand as she's trying to climb out manage somehow get grocerys in trolley pay & get out to car with dd still screaming. Struggle to get her in her seat & as I finally do (still getting foul looks ) I close the door n go to put trolley back. I get a foul look from an old lady & she comments that I "should take her home for a sleep she's unsettled" I snapped "no effing sh!t lady" slammed the trolley into the thingy where it goes n walked off in a huff. Yerp. I'm one of those mums every shopping trip

    I thankfully haven't been quite at this point in public, but my daughter's only 12 months so PLENTY of time.

    I'm not looking forward to the day when I'm out with her, some way from home, and need to change a pooey nappy. She's one hell of a wriggler. Sometimes playing/singing/giving her things to hold will keep her on her back, but other times no luck. This has led to a few occasions recently of having to pin her down (whilst she's screaming blue murder) with a leg, hold her feet in one hand, and try to clean her bum with the other so that she doesn't get poo all over her room.

    Haha.. love it!
    I don't have the patience to deal with rude and judgemental people anymore.

    I had an old checkout lady tell me I was too young to have children- I told her she was a judgemental ***** who should keep her opinions to herself.

    Then the other day I had an older lady eye me up and down, giving me that disapproving judgemental look. So I stopped, stood there and did the exact same thing to her. The look on her face was priceless. I just said "yep, that's right lady- I can give that judgmental look too" and walked off.

    So just want to move to my own little private island where I can be completely self sufficient and the kids can run wild and free... and feral at times without judgement..lol.
