THE VERY LAST NERVE

I think it’s common for your husband to be the man who is on your very last nerve, but what about when it’s your 3-year-old?

Eddie has decided that he is “the boss of Caitlyn”, and dictates at her all day long. To be honest with you, I don’t care what else he does, but I cannot handle him griping at her for one more second!!

“Caitlyn- we DO NOT tell Mommy no!” and then as if I’m not already aware of the situation….”Mooooomy….Cait said no-oh.”

I could kill myself listening to this.

Here’s what did it for me this morning:

Caitlyn opened the hall door and was holding on to the railing to go down.

Eddie: CAITLYN!! YOU DO NOT GO DOWN THOSE STAIRS WITHOUT A GROWNUP!!!
Moooooomy, Cait is going downstairs without you……

Me: Eddie, I see her

Eddie: grabs the door and slams it

Caitlyn: falls to the ground crying

Eddie: See Caitlyn? See what happens when you don’t wait for a grownup?

Me: All of my hair falls out and I collapse in a heap on the floor.

I’m sure that this is common in any sort of sibling relationship, heck I’m sure it was common in my relationship with my brothers, but right now, it is truly on my very last nerve.

  2. Your 5 Questions:1. The year is 2032 and everyone is being relocated to Mars. You and Ed have your tickets for the Mars Shuttle and are packing to go, but due to limited cargo space, sentimental keepsakes must be limited to 3 items per child. Which 3 things would you pick to remind you of Caitlyn? Eddie?2. Is there any artistic piece (can be a picture, music, or film / book) that can instantly alter your mood either for the better, or worse?3.You have mentioned that you’ve never been on a plane, but if you had unlimited finances and could pick one place to visit in the whole world, where would you go?4.When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up, and how does it compare with what you are currently doing?5. Favorite color, what & why?Take your time with this, mine took me a lot longer than I expected, so don’t sweat it. Also, if there are any questions you don’t like, or are uncomfortable answering, please let me know and I’ll change them. Have fun!-TFM
