My kids were so naughty today. Our second cousin had a seven-hour layover in Chicago on her way to adopt a special needs child in Europe and my kiddos acted like spoiled brats throughout the day while we entertained her at our home. It was like an open invitation to see how much they could piss me off before I pulled my hair out infront of a family member whom was off to rescue an orphan.
"I hope that when you have kids, they will be just like you!"
The great thing about having "older" children is that they can actually understand semi-complex conversations and process them. "I'm embarrassed." I told them. "I'm embarrassed at how you acted." The ride home was quasi silent and a couple of "I hope that when you have kids, they will be just like you!" were thrown out there because I was just so angry.
When we arrived at home, they all ran up to their rooms.
They worked as a team to formulate a comeback. Jay didn't have rocks to heat for a rock massage so he took his beloved silver dollar coins and heated them in the microwave to give me a "rock massage", Lola gave me the best head scalp massage with her dollar store lotion while Feenie took good care of my feet. They worked together. They all worked together as a team without me, for me. I was blown away.
Kiddos: "Mom? We are so sorry that we embarrassed you today."
Me: "I hope that when you have kids, they will be just like you!"
Just like you.
