There are no adorable kid pictures. "Why not?" you ask. Because they were not adorable.
Kids go through stages, and some are difficult. We have been lucky, in that our children tend to take turns being difficult. Not so, this week. Or last, for that matter. They have ganged up on us.
Jonah talks back to everything we say, and some things we don't. I heard him talking back to a commercial the other day. Serious attitude adjustment needed.
Samuel ignores everything we say. He hears us, and he understands us, he just does whatever he wants anyway. Usually with a taunting grin or laugh. Punk.
While I am busy dealing with those two, Catherine is getting into everything she can, or devise a way to, reach. The more dangerous, the better.
They are completely out of control.
Don't misunderstand me. I am not standing by, helpless. I am on this problem. Well, three problems actually, each made up of various sub-problems. No malfeasance goes uncorrected. But, changes in attitude take time. I hope I can keep my energy up for this.
See you next week!!!
