Where are the standards
So as I reflect after a looong weekend with skids I feel that maybe I criticized too much had issues with too much maybe I did just wear my "evil stepmom" badge this weekend but seriously where are the standards for how kids are to behave!
I can not handle chomping food so loud I can hear it in the other room, this had to be told to each skid atleast twice each meal. Then they chewed gum inbetween. I had to tell them atleast twice each car ride to get their dirty shoes off of my car seats. The furniture a few times at home. Pouring huge glasses of milk that they wasted and getting mad at me for telling them not to I buy it not you. Teaching them the same things over and over again. Is there really no standard set forth at home why must we reteach them everything every weekend.
And why oh why do these things not bother my dh. Is it because he knows I won't stand for it so he's not the "bad guy" or does he generally not care maybe I am just being nitpicky but if I have to live with these kids I am never going to feel bad about asking respect for my things. Let them think I am evil step mommy then maybe they will leave my shit alone!
