What are some things that annoy you about your step kids the most? What about the ex?
Skids-I am annoyed by how messy they eat for their ages and that they still do not have any manners during meals unless you constantly remind them to not play with their food, to say please/thank you and to use utensils. It's a constant thing at meal time and it's a losing battle. They know better, they have been taught. They are old enough but they eat like slobs anyways and continue to do so. It will make anyone lose their appetite pretty quickly. I am annoyed that they do not listen to their mother and how they ignore her often and repeatedly.. They do not do what they are told until they have been asked a dozen times repeatedly. I'm annoyed by their whiney attitudes and constant complaining over nothing. They do not realize how good they have it yet they have no appreciation for anything.
The Ex- I am annoyed about how he refuses to parent his kids like a proper father. I am annoyed that he takes his kids for such small amounts of time and never takes them for more than a few hours here and there. I am annoyed by his daily phone calls. I am annoyed that he always feels the need to go into his exe wife's house when dropping off/picking up his kids. Why can't you wait on the driveway ? There's no reason for you to be in her house, period, creep. I'm annoyed by his stories that have nothing to do with his kids and are irrelevant yet he feels he needs to tell his ex about them.
