i scream. you scream. we all scream

…but not for ice cream. Why is parenthood filled with so much screaming? Note to readers: if you don’t scream at your children a) you can stop reading here and b) I think you’re full of shit!

OMG! The amount of yelling is out of control. I feel like days are just spent in a downward spiral. Sure it’s not all day (most days) but moments, really, really long moments of hitting a brick wall.

WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO GET THEM TO LISTEN?

WHAT’S WITH THE CRAPTASTIC ATTITUDES?

IS IT THE MOVE OR AM I JUST MAKING EXCUSES?

WILL I STILL HAVE A VOICE IN 2-3 YEARS?

AM I ALONE?

OMG WILL I MAKE IT AS A MOM?

  1. After yelling all day, I said to one: “I think we need to bring you to the doctor, and have to have them install a hearing aid into your head”. He goes: “Yeah, maybe you’re right. What color are they?”

    • Thanks Anne! Sometimes, like all the time, I feel like I’m the only mom in the grocery store or Target losing my shit with my kids cuz they are the crappiest in the world! And I’m the worst Mom cuz I lose my shit.

  2. Ignore them instead of letting them push your buttons all the time. Believe me, they know where your buttons; are especially Hannah Banana. Do not be afraid to use your hand, That’s what butts are made for. But not in public because some ignorant “I don’t know you from Adam” will probably call the cops./ That’s a whole other story.

  3. Just ended our night with yelling (since my loving reminders were not quite enough). While I have no answers for you, I am grateful that there is another Mom out there who is too headed for vocal abuse. Why can’t my love be enough to make them behave ;o) ???? yeah right.

  4. “Mom, you do way too much yelling and you’re always in a bad mood.” my 11-year-old daughter
    “That’s because nobody in this house listens and you’re all making me crazy!” me

    That should make you feel a little better…or at the very least, not alone.
