Enough is enough! I have had it with these muthalovin' flies in this muthalovin' house!
Also, is it August 21 yet? Can it be? Please? I love my older two boys but for their own health, they need to be starting school as of yesterday.
At our church picnic, another mother lightly asked if I was sad that school was going to be starting soon and I said "Nope!" I think she was expecting a more diplomatic answer than that. Something along the lines of "Ohh it's bittersweet and we've had so much fun..."
Now it has been a decent summer, and they have been pretty good for the most part but I swear by the time school starts I'm about ready to shove them out the door. It's not even that they are being rude towards me but that they bicker and annoy each other, often loudly.
My oldest is a moderate introvert, likes being around people, enjoys being with his friends during the day but he's started wanting to take solitary walks around the block before dinner, which is fine with me. It's not so okay with his brother. PB1 leaves, and within minutes I hear "Where is he? I'm going to go find him!" I've been saying "no you're not!" And making him look after his little brother while I cook or grill.
Also he can't seem to tolerate PB1 going to the bathroom by himself. It doesn't lock, and until somewhat recently it didn't need to be but now it clearly does.
They actually get along better during the school year when they're not together most of the day.
