TGIF! Now can I go back to bed?

There are certain privileges to having all your children in school. It means they are out of the house most of the day, and some poor unsuspecting soul that works for the public school system has to put up with their nagging and insistent whining all day.

I can sleep! All day. If I choose. Today that is exactly what I would do if I hadn't agreed to watch my a scooter. Scooter is 4, my nephew and being raised half the time, by my mom.

I REALLY wanted to say " Oh. No. Hell NO! Don't dump that brat on me, I don't care if his babysitter has a doctors appointment for a bum knee. Not my problem. I didn't squeeze this one out. Can't make me." and slam the phone down.

But, I figure since my mom has babysat for me, at the drop of a hat, when ever I need for the last 9 years, I probably should stay on her good side. Probably.

5:30 a.m. comes early to this mama. I mean, its not like I stayed up til 1am watching t.v. or anything. So, when I seen her come through my front door carrying demand child that likes to scream for no apparent reason and make me deaf my little lovable nephew, all I could do was roll out of bed and choke down my whining. I am sure the whistling Hubs was doing before he left for work was not because he felt vindicated for my suffering.I chose to ignore him and had to sit on my hands not to leap after him and beg for him not to leave me here alone all day with these children.

Do the parents of this child read your blog? I sure hope not... you may have a war on your hands. Despite admitting my own kids can be brats at the best of times... some parents would never admit that to another person... let alone want to hear it first hand.

GOOD LUCK. Sounds like you may need it.

I doubt Scoot's parents would care.
My mother is raising him because my brother and his ex are dead beats.

They don't know about my blog anyway.

And I don't care.

Cheers!

p.s. He really is a good kid and sweet as he can be. He just has a very high pitched scream that makes me want to pull my brain out of my ears.
