Dirty Secret Saturday {a blog hop}

Welcome to another edition of Dirty Secret Saturday.
This is a linky party just for you.  To get all those secrets off your chest.
It can be funny, it can be heartbreaking, it can be real.
It just has to be all yours.
We want all the dirt.
All that we ask in return is you give us some bloggy love, and share this button on your post.
Then let all your friends via Twitter and Facebook know we're partying it up over here!

Your hosts are:
and Chrissy from A Lil Dash of Diva

Let's get down to business, shall we....


I'm here today to tell you that my kids annoy me!

NOT all the time.  NOT even most of the time.
But they sure know how to get on my very.last.nerve.

I love to pretend that I'm patient parent.
I am... to an extent.
After hearing "Mommy!Mommy!Mommy!Mommy!" all day long and picking up the same toys over & over again, and having to ask the same question 5 times in a row before I'm even acknowledged eventually takes it's toll, and I feel like I just can't take it anymore.

There are times {very few & far between} when I like to relax in a nice bubble bath. 
How many of those times are not interupted. NEVER.
Me: "What?"
Kids: "I want juice."
Me: "Where's your father?"
Kids: "Downstairs."
Me: "Why don't you ask him for juice?"
Kids: "Cuz I want you to get it for me!"

Okay, that's a bad example. I probably look like a horrible parent for getting annoyed at that... but it's the little things.  Ruby's constant "screaming" - she's VERY loud, Memphis' constant "fact spewing" - he can literally talk your ear off about the same thing for a good part of the day... It all never ends!

They are consistent, and persistent little people!

Most days, these quirks are "cute."
On a bad day, they're "annoying."

Don't get me wrong...
I LOVE my kids more than anything, and would rather settle for complaining about them sometimes than not having them at all!  They are my world!
As much as they do bug me some days, the minute I'm away from them I miss them like crazy!

PLEASE tell me I'm not the only one who feels like this sometimes!
{let it be known my hubby annoys me on occasion too! ha}

  1. LOL you are SOOOO not the only one! I am the exact same way. I love Miss M to death, but man...she really gets under my skin sometimes. I am thinking of changing my name to Bob so that she cant call me Mom's about as bad as a four letter word sometimes.;)

  2. I must mother sometimes drives me the edge of sanity. I am her care giver , she has Alzheimer. Some days I feel like getting in my car and getting the heck outa town...just keep on driving. She lives with my husband and I every other week. My mom says the same thing over and over and over and over! I can laugh today because she is at my sister's for the weekend. I feel 130 pounds lighter. haha! Thanks for hosting and making me smile this morning. Diane @ I am hosting my second linky party on Tuesday and would love it if you would link up.

  3. Seriously Lena, i will praise amen for this. My toddler makes me nutz!! At least the binky keeps me sorta sane he is crazy. wild. so crazy he fell out of a window of my house that's 6 feet off the ground the other day. most days i just want a real job and to take him to daycare. my 8 yr old is pretty chill so not much bitchin there.

  4. got to know you better through your guest post at Our Reflection and so glad I did..Looking forward to getting to know you more and more.

  5. All.The.Time!! Some days my son's cars and trucks are the worst sound in the world. Some days telling me the shape of every gummy he eats is just too much. Some days "up" makes me cringe. I also take it to mean I've had my fill of "mommy-time" and I need some "away time".
    You are not alone!

  6. Aw =) No you are not alone. I think the juice example is perfect. It's very real.
    I am crossing my fingers that you get to have an un-interupted bubble bath very soon.

  7. I'm the same way! I have a feeling most of us will be able to relate to this one! lol

  8. Oh don't I know it....we all relate! Happy Saturday! I linked up ;-)

  9. aah, the little things! That can mean two totally different things: 1, It's the little things....that make your heart swell with joy OR 2, It's the little things...that crawl under your skin and make you want to run away (for a few hours).
    Thanks for reminding me about the linkup today..I linked up a post that I wrote last week that I thought would fit with this topic nicely! LOL


I ♥ hearing from you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a little message!
