I have 3 children ages 7,16 1nd 19 !!
Believe it or not the TEENAGERS are more of a problem !!! they say they understand but they seem to always need something that stops me from studying.
Its always silly things...Mom I need a ride, Mom I need a book for school, Mom my Sax broke can you take it to get fixed, Mom do we have SO AND SO in the cabinet ? Oh By the way Mom, whats his name is coming to dinner,
I cant be there to watch the little one cause I have this and that going on, Hey MOM, Is now a good time for you to take me practicing my driving ? I need this trip form filled out, I need $ for that trip and this trip, Oh Im sorry, is my music too loud and you cant study ? Well im not sure when Ill be home, geez Im 19 !!!!!!!! :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire
And on and on and on and on....I know its normal kid stuff, but it is ALWAYS when I am studying, and when I say NO, then I get attitude and then I get mad because of the attitude, so even though they may stop, Im flustered cause of the last ten minutes and cant return to concentrating on studying..
It hard cause they are GREAT kids, great grades, college or college bound, good friends that want to hang here and not the streets thank god, No drugs, No drinking...they are wonderful kids....just not very supportive it seems..
I havent really found anything but going to the Library to work for me, but then I have to leave the smallest one with them, and you can guess where that goes !!!!
Wow...I feel better after that VENT....Thanks
