Re: August 2011 mamas - July chat

Any advice on neighborhood kids that just WILL NOT LISTEN to you? Some of the girls friends (boy age 8 and girl age 5) just moved in next door and they literally bothered us ALL day yesterday. They wouldn't leave when I told them to, wouldn't listen to what I told them to do, kept Seni up from her second nap, etc. I finally made them leave a little after 7 telling them the girls were going to lay down to watch tv before bed. 1/2 hour later the kids walk in again (forgot to lock the door, grr...) saying they want to watch a movie with my girls. I said "NO, they're sleeping. You NEED to go home." And their response was that their babysitter said they have to be home at 11... WTF?! I'm going to talk to their mom today but I don't know if it'll do much- she's pretty lax (obviously) and just lets them do whatever I think. UGH.

Oy good luck with that! We used to live on base in California and if y doors weren't locked kids would walk in ALL THE TIME. they would even go upstairs to find us if we weren't down there.

I just tell them if the girls want to play, they'll come ask them. And I'd they cannot be respectful by listening to me that try won't be allowed to come over anymore. Then talk with the mom.

I haven't posted any pics of dgs since my trip, but I wanted to post this one dd sent me a couple of days ago. I just LOVE his little hillbilly teeth, and his blue eyes of course!

holy annoying batman! (wait, is saying "holy [fill-in-the-blank] batman" annoying? probably. will have to work on that.)
wow, unbelievable. hate when kids can't catch a clue...or even an outright "go home." had that happen a few times when I babysat in high school. I was babysitting 4 kids (for $3 an hour), forgive me if I didn't want to feel responsible for your 3 kids also! we would often go to a nearby school playground in an effort to break away, but "oh we can go, our mom doesn't care." great. just great
yeah, I would try again with talking very directly and plainly to the kids. if that still doesn't work...lock the doors and turn off the lights! it's a kid zombie invasion! ok, not really. man, that is hard. hope it works out.

Re: August 2011 mamas - July chat

yes. yes I did just buy scented laundry detergent so I could tell which mounds of laundry were clean and which were not. so?

I know, duh, the easiest way to keep track would be to fold and put them away right away, but it just doesn't happen. I'm pretty sure I am washing the same load for the 2nd, maybe even 4rd, time. *sigh* I am sooo unorganized.

Re: August 2011 mamas - July chat

lol, Naomi... I do mine and the girls laundry every 3 days and most of the time it doesn't get put away from the time before. So then I'm like... well, it'd be easier to wait until after THIS load and do them both together. Once I waited 3 times and I'll never do that again- literally took me an hour to just put the clothes away!

Got the Mirena and OMG I'm cramping like crazy. I feel like I'm in back labor, lol! I actually turned on the heated seat back on the way home even though it's 90 degrees out and I don't have AC. I was sweating but it felt good. I might just go back out and sit in the car!
