I swear, I have got to have THE MOST ingrateful children on the planet!
They get away with way more than I did at their ages and they just don't get it!! From bad grades to bad behavior, I am almost at the end of my rope. They've both been grounded at least part of the last month, not necessarily both at the same time.
For instance, my son got to go to a birthday party last night, even though his mouth and general attitude (not to mention grades!) are getting him into trouble at least daily. My daughter had one today.
As soon as she got home, he comes into my room, while I am on my cell, reading emails and blog hopping.
Him: "Can I have that dollar?", pointing to the dollar on my nightstand.
Me: "No.", thinking, between that dollar and some change plus what's in the bank I have about $30 for gas and cigarettes until Friday.
Him: "Leave me alone!", stomping out of my room.
Me: "Gladly! I didn't ask you to come in here anyway!"
Did I say that last part? No, I yelled at him for talking to me like that again.
Man, if these kids grew up with my parents, they'd have no teeth.
