Killing Me Softly...

I try to keep this blog light and breezy and all good news, etc. BUT. I can't take it anymore. Lucy is killing me. Killing us ALL right now. I believe she will find it humorous to look back on her ridiculous behavior someday and for that reason, I shall share not only the good, but the bad and the ugly as well.

Things that have happened in the last 2 weeks that are utterly absurd and left me stressed, sick to my stomach or basically wanting to kill her include:

1. Throwing a fit when I try to leave her with a babysitter to go to work for my whopping 4 hours/week. This includes scream-fests down the street while the 14 year old temp sitter stands there looking confused. (p.s. new regular sitter starts next week. Thank the lord, Jesus). Rumor has it another little girl did this about 25-30 years ago, as well, but I can neither confirm nor deny this.

2. Throwing a fit when I say really mean things like, "Hey. Time to go inside and eat."

3. Throwing a fit at my mother in law's home during her first overnight experience. Telling her really neat things after a fun day like, "I don't like this house. I didn't want to come but my mom made me." Ab. Surd.

4. Whacking her brother for no reason or for ANY reason, causing him to cry and through his PLG tears, say things like, "Sissy is trying to break my stomach."

5. Throwing a fit at bedtime for "one more kiss," "one more song," or "one more story." Seriously, didn't we cover all this when she was two??!!

The list goes on...and Kindergarten starts Tuesday morning. We have high hopes that school starting will "reset" her little whacky internal clock or neediness routine she has going right now.

One minute she loves me, the next minute she doesn't want me around. The dependence vs. independence fight within her little five year old body is just going nuts right now. Let's hope the fight ends soon, before I get sent to the looney bin.

Ok, sometimes I need to hear that someone out there has a child that occasionally acts like mine. Thanks for sharing. Seriously, I can sooooooo relate to this behavior. :)

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
