Just Dumb Gripes on a Tuesday Night
So, I'm sitting here alone...after having cleaned up the kitchen...alone. Because DH dropped everything to take princess YSD17 up to the store to get some ice cream. We actually HAVE most of a half gallon of ice cream in the freezer...but she has a craving for a specialty item.
Here's how it went down:
DH, YSD and I were all watching a show together. Well...DH and I were watching the show and YSD was staring at her phone and texting, then looking up every once in a while to ask us what she missed. So annoying.
YSD: "Nutty Buddies!!! Ooooh! I want Nutty Buddies!!"
DH: "You've got a car. Go get some."
YSD (best little girl whiny voice): "But Daaaaaddddd...I'm watching this shoooowwww and I've never seen it before and you and TwoOfUs haaavvveeee!!!"
(Of course, she hasn't been "watching the show" at all. But whatever.)
DH: "OK. I'll take you to the store to get some as soon as this episode is over."
She then proceeded to NOT watch the show for another 15 minutes. When the show was over:
YSD: "Daaaad!! Nutty Buddies!!!"
DH immediately took her to the store. I mean, FFS. I did a big shop on Sunday before she showed up here for the week and we have PLENTY of food...both healthy and a few treats. He and I are on this special diet and aren't eating sweets, which YSD knows...so basically the translation to all this is...even though I work and have a car and my own money, I don't want to drive myself and spend my own money...I want YOU to go and spend YOUR money on an extra treat that ONLY I want.
I don't know why this got under my skin so bad just now. I know it's such a little thing. But Good Lord...please let visitation end soon.
**UPDATE: DH and YSD just got back. She didn't get those novelty cone things after all. She got a very expensive pint (like $7+) of high-quality ice cream. So glad I just paid for that for her. Must be nice to be her.
