Anyone who has ever had children has been through it, I'm sure: thick-headedness, the "no" stage, "terrible two's", bickering between siblings, and ahh, yes, PULLING YOUR HAIR OUT!
My youngest is 2, my next one up is 4, the only other detail you really need is they're driving my whole family CRAZY. It's not just me, or my hubby. My sis-in-law kept them for us today while we ran some errands. We tried to give her a "heads-up" of how high strung (for lack of a harsher term) they've been lately. When we returned, she said she fully expected the 2 y/o to, at some point, climb up the walls and across the ceiling.
Now, I know all children have their rebellious stage but, seriously? SHE'S 2! Our 4 y/o isn't so bad, as long as it's just her. However, when they are together, they bounce off of each other and don't listen to anything. NOTHING! Cleaning the playroom? Not happ'nin'. Eating? RIIIIGHT. Going to bed? HAHAHAHA! Don't make me cry -- I mean laugh.
I've always heard that you pay for how hard-headed you were when you were a child when you have children of your own -- 10 fold. What I wouldn't give to go back and be the perfect little angel. I'd have eaten my veggies and cleaned my room and done the dishes and all my chores, hell, I'd've even asked for more chores had I known then what I know now.
I'm at my wits end and my last strand of hair. I can't get a grip on my husband's hair; it's too short. I asked for perfume for this past Christmas, I think I should've requested Rogaine, or a wig. Not only does my head hurt, but my fingers are a little sore, too. You have to grip really hard to pull out a lot at one time, LOL.
I've always wanted to donate my hair to "Locks of Love" for a very deserving woman who's endured cancer. Hopefully, someday, I'll still be able to do so. But, for now, I'm considering starting my own foundation -- "Locks of Understanding." For all us moms out there with spoiled rotten kids and no hair of our own left to pull.
