You Are Making Me C-R-A-Z-Y

"I MEAN it... Stop. It.
I'm not laughing because I think it is funny... I'm laughing because you are making me crazy and I'm trying not to freak out."
Stay In There!

I am not kidding. I was laughing so hard only because I knew I was so close to crying... which of course only encouraged her craziness.

poor thing! dang kids. hang in there!

Mrs. Furious said...

well and you've seen it.. you know of crazy she can be!

I hate when they make you do the insane laughter thing. I fear having another one and being outnumbered.

Mrs. Furious said...

Deb,

there is a reason our kids are 4.5 years apart! ;)

yes I hate when that happens... I feel so out of control and nervous so I start laughing which only makes her start laughing maniacally which makes me genuinely laugh which makes her act like even more of a freak and the cycle repeats itself until I snap and yell "Enough... I'm SERIOUS you are making me CRAZY!!!" which of course doesn't work so I call Mr F and yell at him to hurry up. By the time he gets home everyone is back to normal and he thinks I'm just stressed out about Christmas shit... not true your kids are crack addicts Mr F!

My kids were driving me crazy today, too! I feel like I am not taking good care of myself the last couple of weeks and it makes me annoyed. I spent hours wrapping presents instead of exercising. I just feel cranky. I told my 6 year old that all I want for Christmas are children who listen to me.

Julie said...

Oh by the way, how was Kid's dance thing? Did you end up giving her flowers, too? How was the freaky mom?

And, how is Baby's little butt? Poor Baby...she has a hard couple of weeks of unpleasantries (not sure if that even makes sense, but I wanted to use that word.)

" I told my 6 year old that all I want for Christmas are children who listen to me."
I'm not kidding.. I said the exact same thing to Kid the other day!

and you make a good point I ate like total shit today.. and haven't been getting my cardio in so I'm probably more testy than usual (not to mention holiday pressures). Making me wonder why I never learn my lesson (it always goes down like this)... I'm stressed so I decide not to cook which = crappy takeout food, and I feel I have no time so I decide to take the week of exercise which is my mood regulator so when I'm most stressed I've taken away my two biggest tools for managing my stress... maybe not such a good idea! Hmmm.. I'm going to have to think on this....

Ah yes the dance... I've got GREAT pictures so I'll do a post on it. The result was kind of funny given my stance!

Butt... seems to be scabbing (good?!?). I got the special ointment someone suggested and she's all lubed up for the night. I think I'll just try and keep something on her even once it is better as a precautionary measure. Angie was over trying on clothes this AM and she mentioned maybe it was teething related. Baby still only has 2 teeth so god knows that is a possibility!

must go to bed....

"laugh or cry" has been my mantra for years! And I used to think my kids would feel bad if they saw that they had driven me to the edge, but they seem to be guilt-free and immune to it. They just keep feeding off of each other until I break and yell, "I do not want to hear your voices. ANY. MORE."

Hopefully today will be a better day!

Mr Furious said...

Crackheads is right! Mrs F went shopping after dinner last night and I was ready to bludgeon Kid in only twenty minutes.

At the end of the night Baby had a few hits off Kid's pipe and was literally climbing all over me and the couch when it was supposed to be quiet book time...

Freaks.

At least it seemed like they slept okay, and Baby's butt is recovering. Literally re-covering.

Baby jails are awesome!

Gigs,
"Hopefully today will be a better day!"
it is not looking like it!
she's already copying everything I say... that little treat is usually saved for a little later in the day... must drink more coffee...

Mrs. Furious said...

Avery Gray,
oh yes... if only Kid didn't already know how to open it!

Mr Furious said...

if only Kid didn't already know how to open it!

It's a 40-pound force on the pedal to open that gate. A mark Kid eclipsed many moons ago.
