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.
