Have You Heard? Stupid Is The New Cool.

“Mom, Anna called me stupid. It’s true, she did.”  Jay-8

“No, I didn’t. You’re lying. I called Will stupid. So there!”  Anna-11

“Yup, that’s right. She called me stupid. I’m the stupid one. Jay’s just trying to start trouble.”    Will-10  

It’s official. We have arrived at the point during summer break when my mental state sibling relationships begin to deteriorate. I chalk it up to the fact that they’re driving me crazy too much togetherness.  Colette A very wise friend once told me, “My two favorite days of the year are the last day of school in June and the first day of school in September.” Did I mention how wise she is?

So tell me. What’s your vice and can I have some secret to preventing your spawns of satan from killing each other keeping the peace during these last few weeks of summer?

    My mother always loved the summer time. She used to cry when we would go back to school. She’s alright now because she has my dad around all of the time, but she cries when he talks about going back to work too. According to Kyle, she’s never been alone in her life though, so you understand why…

    I don’t have kids, but I do celebrate the first day of school to get the little delinquents off the streets! 😀
    All I can recommend is distributing those pool floatie noodles, relocation of the younguns outside, and promise of the best possible Christmas presents to the winner. Then sit back with plenty of alcohol and your favourite music, and let the games begin!
    No? Too violent? Well, then, off to the closet sounds good!

    Classic. These quotes will never get old. I think when I was at that age I got a N64. That took up tons of my time. Also kinda turned me into a nerd…

    • Kluck it! I’m so glad you stopped in. You know, you were my very first comment ever (by someone who was not a friend or relative) when I started this blog back in April. 🙂
      I have to set strict limitations on the XBox in this house or my boys will surely turn into drooling zombies. Damn thing!

    Hi Nancy !
    Thanks for the shout out! I’m definitely at that turning point;maybe 197 days to the school year wouldn’t be a bad idea. Hmmmm…. I’m heading back to my closet now with my book and pitcher of mojitos. Text me when it’s August 29th ! Love ya, Colette

    Well . . . since Sarah doesn’t have siblings I find the only person she has to drive insane is ME. This week I have 1) given myself a time out in my room, with the door locked; 2) stopped talking to her completely and 3) escaped to coffee shops leaving her with other people. Hmmm, I’m not sure I am a good person to answer this question. 😉

    Take them to a county fair or anything else that has one of those things with the five feet of balls in them…i’ve heard kids often disappear in those things…like socks in a dryer…

    • Welcome Cooper! I like your thinking, but here’s the catch…at some point my darling cherubs will resurface from the depths of that ball pit, and although I will have enjoyed a slight reprieve, they’ll emerge with runny noses, coughs and Lord knows what! Those things are breeding grounds for all sorts of nastiness. Nothing’s worse than a whiny sick kid. 😦

    Entertaining rugrats hmm, lets see….ummmm……ummmmm….ummmm nope can’t help ya !

    I have a favorite story though. When a friend of mine was young , he and his siblings misbehaved so badly that their mom went to the closet grabbed a suitcase and began packing. When the kids asked what she was doing she told them she had had enough being a mom and was leaving for good. The children burst out crying as she stormed out with her suitcase full and slammed the door behind. The children sat for several hours and hours in complete shock with no sign of mom. Blahahaha of course she was down the road having a good old laugh with her friend. That got her a good two days peace 🙂
