What a weekend!
As you all know my family is here from NJ. It has been a hectic weekend. And as you all know I am going through a rough time with my daughter...but My daughter decided to tell me yesterday she had a project due on Tuesday. sooo..of course she got is grounded for this but it was all in front of my family. My grandmom chimmed in..she should of just stayed in NJ where she would have non stop care from your aunt (my aunt is a principal). And then my aunt says to my husband..well she is only 10 going on 11 she is kind of young to be in 6th grade. WHAT!!!! I try my best as a parent to take care of all three of my children, make sure their homework is completed and they are doing their best. So my aunt decides to help her (which is fine) but at the end of the night she said ok go ahead and go to bed Makayla ill do the rest of the fact finding for you. NO WAY! My husband blew up. Its her fault that she is behind on the project, this is our problem now. Everyone has given into her all these years and now we dont give her her way she is acting out. And of course they get all upset with my husband saying he is out of control and outraged. Uhhh...just not good. I know they mean well but BACK UP i am the parent!!! I am sorry everyone..i just had to let it out! Thanks for listening.
I think older people have a hard time remembering back when their kids were kids. Like they remember the good parts but not the harder parts, or they gloss over those things in their memory.
That's funny that they want them to play cars though instead of football. A nice quiet activity.. haha.
