So we are currently watching The Polar Express & T is sitting on the couch glued to the movie while wearing his Finn the Human hat. I just giggled because it’s just too funny. This is one of the many reasons why I love my son, especially when he does silly things like this .
Does your little ones or did your children do this? Having to wear certain things while watching a movie at home?
So back in September T had fallen at school and broken his arm, boy that’s an experience I do not want to re-live again. Always making sure the arm was covered when he showered, the smell that would come from the cast & how much it hurt when you’d get hit by it. But, of course we’d do it all over again if we had to, but let’s hope we don’t lol.
On November 2, 2016 was an exciting day for T. It was the day his cast was finally coming off, he had it on for about 5 weeks and his bones healed up great!! I personally have never seen a cast be taken off & obviously neither has T, so when it came to time it was pretty awesome. The doctor showed that it wouldn’t hurt, he turned on the machine & put the blade on his hand & showed it didn’t cut, so T was okay with it. It took maybe 2 mins to get the cast to come off. T got all excited that it was off, but said it felt weird & light, mainly because he didn’t have the heavy cast on anymore. Some how he managed to get a corn kernel in his cast, because when the cast came off there was a piece of corn, doctor got a good laugh out of it.
It took about 1-2 days for T to get re-adjusted to not having his cast on, but once he got better he was back to his normal dare devil self. We asked T if he learned his lesson & if he’s planning on doing it again & he said he won’t be doing it ever again because he don’t want another cast.
Halloween this year was a lot of fun, at first didn’t think D was going to be able to go due to work but he decided to call off 🙂
A friend of ours who is like a sister & her son came over then we went out trick-or-treating. We only hit a few streets but the boys did get a decent amount of candy. Of course this being western new york, it was cold when we started & kept getting colder.
Later after our friend & son went home T wanted to watch “Spookley the Square Pumpkin”. Trent had a good time except at one house, the lady was a bit older & took forever passing out candy. So the kids had to wait & wait, once it was their turn the lady asked T if he was banging his bucket on the stairs railing, he said yes & she said well you don’t get any candy. Seriously?! These kids are waiting forever & just being kids & you’re going to do that? Poor T he ran to us crying, he’s just bad & can’t have candy. Of course other parents are looking at us giving us looks, like really people, it was bullshit, but whatever we left bitching & D was highly pissed off. It took a while before T was calmed down & back to himself, it really bothered him. Needless to at we know where to not go next year. Atleast he was able to finish his Halloween on a good note with chicken nuggets & a movie 🙂
We hope you all had a fun/safe Halloween. Have you ever had a problem like we did this year?!
We are currently sitting on our front porch enjoying the nice day. It’s one of those days were you just wanna be outside instead of doing homework. So today T and myself are enjoying the afternoon then later we’ll get to his homework. Besides his homework is so easy, read 15 mins, math flashcards and spelling.
Are there days you let your kid(s) do their homework later so they can enjoy a nice day?
You’re an amazing little guy for only being 7 years old and you care so much for others. You’re willing to help others out when they need it, you also are willing to donate some of your toys when you no longer need/play with so others can have.
This mommy is getting really sick and tired of your “punk ass” attitude! I love you very much but man, your attitude lately has SUCKED! I don’t know where it came from, why you have it, and why you find it necessary to have it everyday, but I think it’s time to knock it off. I don’t appreciate everyday you yelling at me and making me feel like a horrible mother. I’ve done everything right, and this is how you treat me, what did I ever do to you? It really does upset me when you do this to me everyday.
Please stop with this attitude, it isn’t good. I understand it’s tough being an only child, but mommy & daddy are trying to fix that but it may take a while. So please stop acting like an adult and just be yourself, the sweet little boy everyone loves and the little boy who is willing to help others. I don’t like this little devil you’ve become, I’ve talked to you several times about this and you still have not learned. I do hope soon (maybe with school starting in 2 weeks) your attitude will change for the better, cause it seems to get worse everyday.
Remember mommy & daddy love you very much but we are tired of this “punk ass” attitude you’ve been giving.
It’s crazy?! It seems like you were just being born and now your 7 years old?! Where has the time gone, I guess time flies when your having fun, on July 28th T turned 7 years old we can’t believe it already. It’s hard to believe he’s 7 already, but there’s times he acts like he’s in his 20s and it drives me nuts, I guess the joys of being a parent and him being an only child (which I’m hoping soon that will change 🙂 ). T is an amazing kid, he cares so much for others, he can be very polite when he wants to (any kid is like that lol) and his imagination is crazy! I just wish that as he gets older the attitude wouldn’t get worse but oh well, he’s a unique child and somethings are harder for him to understand. He has signs of Autism but also signs of ADHD, so the docs are really sure what it is, and we refuse to medicate our son so we try our hardest to understand him and control how he acts when he has his moments.
Now onto T’s birthday! This year we didn’t do a party or a cookout or anything, instead right on his birthday, daddy made him pancakes for breakfast and then we did presents. I made him a blue velvet cake with little frosting on top, and when D got home from work we had cake. T really enjoyed his birthday, even if we didn’t do much he still had a good day.
The next day which was a Friday myself & my mother took T over to our fair to watch the fireworks, wish D could have been there but he had to work. T was a little bummed he couldn’t go into the fair but we didn’t have the money because we had it saved for the next day which was a big birthday surprise. 🙂
So, now it’s Saturday July 30th and we proceed with our day like normal but try to get things ready without T figuring out what we are doing. Then we all get in the car and start heading towards Perry, NY. When we get to our destination T freaked out! We took him to Silver Lake Twin Drive-In, it’s our favorite drive in, it may be a bit far from us but always worth it. We were going to see Secret Life of Pets & Ice Age: Collision Course and he was so excited he’s been wanting to see these movies so bad! As usual we are there like 3 hours before the drive in actually opens, so after we got there we got a text someone was on their way. It was T’s aunt when she showed up he got even more excited. Then we decided to hit the arcade, we had about $20 put aside just for the arcade and only spent $14 of it and T had a blast as always playing the different games.
Finally it’s time to line up and get into the drive in, we’re always early so we can get in line early to get a good spot 🙂 T decides he wants to wait with his aunt in her car so he goes with her, we get into the drive in and T takes off playing at the playground. I would say about 1.5 hrs later someone else shows up……it’s uncle B (yes he calls him exactly that lol) T spots him across the playground to where we were parked and ran across screaming UNCLE B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T was so excited to see him, he ran up and jumped into his arms, he absolutely loves his uncle. It’s time for the movies to begin, T moves his chair next his uncle and we all sit and watch the movies. It was an amazing time seeing T spend time with his uncle and enjoy 2 movies with him. T said this was the best gift ever over and over. Honestly, it really is because memories last a life time (for some lol) toys and that are just material things that eventually are nothing to a child.
All in all from Thursday to Saturday T had an amazing birthday, he had so much fun and has some great memories to look back on. Happy Birthday little man, you mean the world to mommy & daddy we love you!!!
I’ll probably get some heat for this post but to this point I don’t give a rats ass. When I sit back and look at myself I think I’m just a bad/shitty parent.
My son T has such a wicked attitude, I swear anymore it just seems to be getting worse over time. I’ve told my other half D that T is this way because he has a shitty mom, yet he swears up and down it’s not. I think it is, we are just crappy parents and it’s causing him to be a brat towards us. T at times will holler and scream at the top of his lungs at us, I understand he’s an only child, but the attitude is uncalled for.
D says it’s cause he’s an only child and is trying to be an adult, but I just disagree with that. I know the kid doesn’t have anyone his age to hangout with and there isn’t much I can do about that. It’s just how our life is, we don’t have family that live in the same town that he can go play with. He don’t have true honest friends, at 6 years old (almost 7) his friends are the type just friends in school, outside of school nothing, this kid is going down the same road I did as a kid via friend wise.
All I want to do is make sure T has a good childhood and the past 2 years it’s been living hell. Anymore we are just yelling & screaming at him because he just simply don’t want to listen. We’ve tried all different things, taken stuff away, been cool & calm with him when he starts yelling but nothing is working. I’m just to the point I’m ready to give up, I know it’s not good saying as a mother but I’m just done with it.
Because of all this stress of T’s attitude all I want to do is sit on my ass doing nothing, not wanting to be bothered with. I just can’t handle this attitude, so basically I’ve thrown in the towel. What doesn’t help is NO ONE will take T for a night, because they can’t handle him even tho he is good when we are away, so that there tells me T has a problem with us being his parents 😦 my grandparents have let him stay the night 2 different times & my aunt only let him once, yet my aunt bitches saying he needs a break away from us, well if that’s the case then fucking take him.
Ugh I just don’t know what to do anymore & I don’t know how much more I can take before I completely freak out!!
