How do you spell drama?
Picture the scene: Mason is screaming his head off in his swing. I am trying to hurry through "Oh the Places You'll Go" so that Ivan can go to bed. The older kids are SUPPOSED to be playing nicely. I hear Ethan crying and here comes Harmony...
H: " I just want you to know that I am trying to make Ethan feel better."
M: "Well why is he crying in the first place?"
H: "Because Connor and I told him that we were sick and tired of him."
M: "Why on earth would you say something so mean to him?"
H: "Well don't worry, I am trying to make him feel better."
M: " You shouldn't have said it in the first place. You and Connor just earned a one way ticket to bed."
H: "THAT ISN'T FAIR! I WAS TRYING TO GET HIM TO STOP CRYING!" Walks out of the room and slams her door.
I go make her come back to Ivan's room and walk back into hers without the hissy fit. I than said, " I don't know why you are acting like this." Her response:
" I don't know either. I am just a bad person aren't I Mom? Admit it, that is what you think about me too!"
Me: "just go to bed. Not one more word. Not one. Just go to bed."
If she is this bad at 10, how bad can the teenage years be?
This is why I only have one girl.
