I don’t usually watch sitcoms on t.v., this is due to the fact that my hubby doesn’t like them. I have learned over the past 17 years not to have a sitcom on if he is around or going to be soon. I will never hear the end of it, if I do. So, with this being said, I found a show recently, ok…a sitcom, that I kinda like and can somewhat relate to, because the family is plain whacked and it makes me laugh.

This morning, my lovely little girl wanted to go outside before I made breakfast. I have trying to get her out after we eat, because by 11a.m., the front of the house is engulfed in bright, hot, sunlight and we are pretty much stuck inside until late evening. She plays today for about 40 minutes, then I tell her we have to go in and make breakfast. I make her a waffle to keep her busy while I got the rest ready. After we are done, Little L wanted to taker her sippy cup with milk into the living room. I have had to stop giving her milk during the day since she can’t seem to handle it and it ends up all over the floor. Like the big, trusting dummy mommy I am, I let her take it. I was putting things away and trying to get the dog some food, when I happened to look into the living room and found her dancing in the puddle of milk she just poured onto the floor. I, of course, turned into crazy mom and started yelling at her to stop, but that didn’t even faze her. Nooooo, she drops to the floor and was trying to drink it up before I could get to her. I grabbed some towels and had to pull her off of it. While I am drying it up, the little brat the little sweetheart was still playing, trying to get as much fun out of it she could. By now, I was ranting like a true maniac. I actually said that she made me feel like a “full blown idiot at times.”  Yes that came out of my mouth to a 21 month old, with some other choice words that I would rather not repeat. She just gets me so riled up. Her and her sister! Which brings me back to the show I was talking about.

In Thursday’s episode, the kids were being major brats and blaming everything on the mom. Sound familiar? Does in my house. So she gets the idea of taping them to prove a point that there was too much yelling and back talking in the house. The only problem was as they were yelling, and she was video taping, she would get so mad at them that she would jump in and start yelling back, which put her in the video too. Once seeing this, she decides that she would stop nagging at them to do things. She would say it once, then they would do what she asked of them and BAM, no more yelling. Yea right, I wish it was that easy.  Now I know a 21 month old doesn’t fully get things the first time. Maybe not even the 10th or 20th time, but older kids should be able to follow a simple task like cleaning their room, or doing school work on time. But to them it is no big deal, it will get done when it gets done. And if you ask more then once, here comes the whining and the crying about being told to do said task. I think they like the fact that they yell and that can get you so crazed and upset that you tend to forget everything else and your head starts spinning and you have steam rolling out your ears. They enjoy this. They walk off in victory over the fact that they have made you so mad that you just want them out of your sight…UGH!

I didn’t get to finish the episode, because dear hubby came in for lunch at the same time I was watching. Luckily I was in the bedroom putting Little L down for her nap, so he didn’t see anything. 😛
