If you are familiar with my blog you will know I have a series ‘Annoying things about…’ which covers a variety of topics. I feel I must warn you now ‘Annoying things about my children’ will definitely be a series within a series here on my blog. I have a 4 year old boy and a 9 year old girl therefore I’m fully qualified to moan about children!! Today has been one of ‘those days’ and I feel the need to vent! I do want to say although I am ranting I love my children to death and wouldn’t swap them for the world. They drive me crazy but they are my everything ❤️
I have not had a poo by myself since 2007
Children seem to have a toilet radar, the very second I decide I’m going to the toilet they will appear from the depths of their bedrooms or wherever the hell they were hiding to pester me. If I have to say “can I wipe myself in peace please” one more time I’m going to explode, even my neighbours are sick of hearing me shout this.
They are constantly hungry
No matter how much I feed them, no matter how much I stuff their little faces within half an hour I will hear “Mum I’m hungrrrry” you would think I stave them the amount they moan about being hungry. If I offer them an apple it’s no no no I don’t want that, well you can’t be that hungry then can you! I dread the school holidays as I know my food shopping bill will triple on snacks alone. (More on that here Annoying things about the school holidays)
Dear lord my kids know how to moan, about everything “I’m too hot, I’m too cold, I’m hungry, I’m too full, I’m thirsty, he’s touching me, she’s not sharing, I want to sit in the front of the car, I want to sit in the back of the car, I want my turn on the tv, I want my iPad, I’m bored, I want to go to the park, I’m too tiered I want to go home….” I could literally keep doing that impression for days. The moaning never ends.
They can’t find anything themselves
I feel this applies to my boyfriend too but we’ll stick to the kids for now. I spend a good 40% of my life looking for homework books, shoes, juice bottles, transformers, bouncy balls, that certain tshirt they ‘have’ to wear, their favourite cuddly toy, pencil cases, coats….this is another list that can go on forever!
They interrupt constantly
Grrrr I go crazy over this one, no matter how many times I tell them not to interrupt as it is bloody rude they are incapable, purely incapable of keeping their little mouths shut. They talk over me, their dad, family, friends, strangers, customers of mine…..they really don’t care who it is!!!! I will loose my mind weekly about this, especially to my 9 year old as she knows better. It makes them look like feral children with no manners!
I would LOVE to hear in the comments below what you find annoying about your children! Let’s share the stress in this secret blog!
