More Ways to Ruin Your Daughter's Life

Or, Drama Revisited

Seriously, this is getting ridiculous. Last night as I trudged up the stairs after a very very long day I hear 11 year-old lovely lady sobbing "Mom hates me. She just hates me! I'm going to go live somewhere else! This is blasphemy!" Apparently saying matter-of-factly, "It's bedtime, let's turn off your light," is hateful vicious behavior. And, obviously, my lovely lady needs a vocabulary lesson.

If it is a comfort to you, my 8 year old daughter had a fit just moments ago since I let her brother clean up the toy corner.

It used to be a chore she did, earning a dollar a week Note: I do not pay my kids to pick up all the time, but since she was cleaning up after her brothers mostly, I thought a dollar a week was a fair price). But a few weeks back she decided she did not want to do this task any longer.

So today, her brother asked to take it over and be paid. I said yes, thus saving myself from having to nag them to do it.

But now I am am the WORST mother in the world and she has ABSOLUTELY nothing else in the world to do.

Hang in there!
