Can't tell Dh cos I am sooo tired of repeating myself
Here goes nothing....
This is my daily life:
As long as I am taking care of their physical needs that is fine; do not do any other parenting!
Do not attempt to expect anything else in return.
Ensure you cook ONLY food they eat without complaining.
Wash; Iron and putaway their clothing.. But have no input in what they wear; just clean up whatever is left on the floor.
Clean up behind them; but do not expect them to do respectful to you
Expect them to answer you back and don't address it with them.
Allow them to ignore any request you make
Allow SD to throw a fit everytime you are brushing her hair; putting in a ponytail; straightening it; or whatever it is she decideds she doesn't want you to do!
Do not have a say about the fact that they climb all over the furniture; scrape cars along the laminate repeatedly; constantly lie ont top of the cat or pull his tail; leg or whatever they decided to do today
Do not question ANYTHING about their behaviour.
Ignore the constant argumentative confrontation when either are faced with something THEY don't want to do.
Shutup whenever they inform you that they're allowed to from "dad" "gran"; "Grandad" or anyone else they feels has more authority than you do...
I think the above reads for an advertisement for a paid nanny...
