So much attitude
I can’t wven begin to describe the massive amount of attitude SD has managed to throw at me since she’s been home from school. The second she doesn’t get her way, is asked to do something, or get caught doing something she’s not supposed to her attitude shoots through the roof. I’ve gotten to the point that I just send her away from me because I can feel myself wanting to say something not appropriate back to her. Today though really took the cake, and mostly because of the way SO handled the situation. We’re all out in the front and have all three kids playing on the splash pad and kiddie pool along with each of them getting something from the ice cream truck. All is going good we’re all enjoying the water in the heat. Fast forward to SD eating the gum from her ice cream. You know the little crappy gum balls that have zero flavor after 5 seconds. She’s talking away as usual and it falls out of her mouth and into the pool. Gross. I tell her it’s time to throw it out because it fell out of her mouth and it’s nasty to put it back in. She proceeded to argue and throw a fit refusing to throw it away. Well me being the mom I’m not gonna just give in. I tell her very seriously to throw out her gum. She then in a huff throws her chewed up gum straight at me. Immediately I’m pissed. I send her out of the pool and make her go sit on the stairs while I try to cool down and not explode on her. Well of course dear dad saw none of this go down but sees his little snowflake screaming and crying on the steps because she got kicked out of the pool. He consoles her and once she’s finished sobbing to him he asks me what happened. I tell him and she pipes in I didn’t throw it at her on purpose. I could care less wether she did it on purpose. She decided that since she didn’t get her way she could throw a fit and and chunk chewed up gum out with out paying attention to where it was going. Well like always he sided with her. Let’s her go back to the pool. She sat out a measly minute before getting her way like always.
