Like water under the B*ver dam so are the days of DH's life
Fasten your seatbelts..it's going to be a bumpy ride.
Beaver as we have seen believes in the "my kids are my friiiiieeeeeenddssss" theory of parenting. I have never subscribed to that theory. Also, between DH and I we had 4 kids. There were more of them than there we us and there was no way I was ever letting the inmates run our asylym.
It seems the chickens have come home to roost at the Beaver dam. SD has a terrible time putting down her ipad/iphone at night and not being on snap chat, text messages whatever. **See a previous blog on this subject*** DH takes SD electronics at night due to this issue. SD grumbles a bit and tries to argue a little..but in the end DH will tell SD. "I have asked you once to give me your electronics, if I have to ask again you will no longer have these items. I am NOT arguing about this and it is not up for debate." That being said, SD will hand over everything because she knows DH will take her electronics and they will be gone for a considerable length of time. All of our kids know...do NOT make me tell you or ask you twice, if you do, you will not like the consequences.
Beaver as we seen never follows through with anything and doesn't like to discipline anyone...it ruins them being "friiieeennndsss".
Apparently, last night Beaver decided she wanted SD to turn down her music around 11:30 p.m. SD claims she did and then Beaver decided she just wanted to take SD's ipad. SD was having none of that and refused. (SD was in the wrong here....very in the wrong). A physical fight between SD and Beaver ensues...and Beaver ends up hitting, scratching and biting SD to get the ipad.
SD texted her Dad this morning and wants him to pick her up today so she can get away from Beaver and GWR. Beaver is at work today and SD is at Beaver Sr and Mr. Beaver's house. DH has immediate first right of refusal when Beaver is at work. Beaver put this in the paperwork when she stayed at home so that she could get the kids during the day if DH wasn't there. That table has turned and Beaver is not home now and DH is 100% work from home for years.
*******SSCREEEECHH**** WtF...hitting, scratcing and biting. Oh MY....now SD was wrong to argue. No doubt about that but I told DH years ago that this would happen. If you don't start out sending your kids a message...do not mess with me..you will not like it...then when you do...they just ignore the crap out of you and argue with you. WE are at that point with SD and Beaver.
So, DH will get SD this morning from the grandbeaver dam and then call Beaver to discuss this whole thing. We let SD know she may have to go back to her mother's, but, at 14 she does have some say in where she is. If SD wants to live here (I think she has for awhile)..then that will be a longer conversation.
Stay tuned for the next episode of As the Beaver dam turns....
