Perhaps you might know an exorcist that could help me out?

I need a break. Seriously, I am here waving the white flag, throwing in the towel or what have you, I give up! He won. The fat lady sang a beautiful song - I am a terrible mother.

I just want to know what happened to my sweet little boy. The one who cried because someone at school called him a baby. This same child is now not listening to a word I say to him, kicking, punching and screamed and yelled at 11pm because I wouldn't get him a chicken burger. A friggin CHICKEN BURGER? For realz dude?

I personally think screaming for a chicken burger is a sign of the devil, but apparently these are the things I do wrong (according to grandma #1 and #2)
- He is acting out because you buy him too many toys
- He screams at the top of his lungs over a chicken burger because you have to be more firm with him.
- He defies everything you say because you didn't buy him a puppy.
- He leaves his dirty underwear laying around because he doesn't have a man in his life to yell at him.
- He gives you a hard time every morning because you don't spend enough time with him.
- He kicks you because you didn't do the safety pin trick where you poke the kids with a pin when they are bad.

Unless it involves holy water and a priest, I think I'll stick to modern times and yell and scream back at him until he is embarrassed...and while I'm at it, maybe I'll embarrass him in front of his little friends. Who am I kidding? Nothing works, my child is broken!

And this, my friends, is one of the downfalls of being a "single parent" (I hate that term so much!). I am always the bad guy - always! In fact, I'm working on developing an evil laugh and evil person costume. Now I just need an evil name....

Hello..this is my blog. I bought this fancy theme and I don't know what to write here just yet. Maybe one day remind me I have to write something inspiring here?


  1. *sigh* kids... kids ... mine is crazy like that too. but at least yours is old enough for reason.
    Grandma #1 and #2 prob gives good advice but they haven't parented in 20-30 years... they probably forgot that they themselves spoiled, not poke their kids with pins, AND BOUGHT THEM A PUPPY. so what do they know lol.. u are an awesome mommy just the way you are. infact you're an awesome daddy too.. AND you make a wicked evil vilian. Have you explored the name EVILFLU as your evil alias?

  2. Thanks Lainy! It's very true..they think they know everything but in their times it was still okay to whack kids with sticks and actually leave them on the side of the road - not just threaten! lol

    Not that I would do those things, but I tell ya sometimes... lol

    Thank you so much for your kind words...I needed to hear that today :)

  3. I still leave my underwear on the floor.
