The Art of Making Kids Miserable.

0 Comments on The Art of Making Kids Miserable.

I have been a mom for the past nine years.  I have two daughters ages 9 and 6 and an 18 month old son.  

Just like every other mom out there, each week I try to ruin all the fun my kids are having and basically try to make them miserable.  This week was no different. 

Here is a list of things I did to achieve this goal:

I wouldn’t let my son eat the filter from our vacuum or any of the Shopkins that belong to my girls.

I only read six books to him when it was time for his nap.

I bought my oldest a shirt and a night gown in the size that wouldn’t be too small after it was washed.

I drove to get my oldest from school. (She thought I should have walked)

I walked to get my oldest from school.  (She thought I should have driven)

I woke the six year old for school and actually made her go.

I wouldn’t let the my youngest daughter go home with her best friend after school, even though her friend wasn’t at school because she had her tonsils removed that morning.

I made my daughter wear a coat when it was 40 degrees outside.

I wouldn’t let the girls talk loudly or play with the noisy baby toys while I was reading the books they asked me to read for bedtime.

I made a cake that I wanted to eat instead of one that the kids might want.

I made my daughter go back in to the bathroom and actually flush the toilet.

I bought the Valentine’s that I thought my oldest would like without her being there.  Big mistake

I wouldn’t let either girl eat said Valentine’s until after we knew we would have leftovers.

I wouldn’t let my son continue to dunk his sisters’ toys in the toilet.

All of these things resulted in whining, complaining, and gnashing of teeth.  Which, obviously, was what I was hoping for. 

So, if any of you reading are hoping to achieve the same goal of making your kids miserable surely something on this list can help. 

I mean, I have been killing it over the past week and hopefully, next week will work out just as well.
