How stupid do they think we are?

This is not about the BMs in the world! It's about the kiddos! I tell you that I'm just having one of those days that makes me want to scream. Matter of fact I basically did at one point.

I don't know if I'm the only one that does this, but I will not continue driving with a child aggravating me and argueing with me. I pull over and address the subject so that I am not distracted while I'm driving. I probably get louder because it's aggravating that I had to stop to address this. Yes, that was us today on the way home from running errands.

First of all, how in the heck do you think that I asked you a question when I told you that I frequently see that you do NOT wear your seatbelt in the car? Is there anything on this planet that I said in that statement that makes you think that I doubt what I saw or that I care why you don't wear it? Are you sure that you want to tell me that I didn't see that and in effect call me a liar?

Like I said in the car, you cannot tell me what I saw or didn't see. I didn't ask you if you did or not and was not interested in having a conversation about the truth in that statement. Since I really don't lie to you (but will admit to witholding information frequently) then my truths don't really need to be questioned right now, do they? You have a much worse track record for making information fit your purposes and absolutely not being 100% truths. Or even close. Oh, yu'll stick to your lie because you have to, but it sucks when you have to fess up to it because there is too much pointing to the fact that it is a lie. Then the tears come. A natural response.

But come on. At 12 years old you know the difference and although you do come to believe that your version of events is true because your perception (quite often hand-in-hand with your ADHD) is what counts. You never focused on what didn't matter to you so everything else is a moot point.

Grrrrr.... and then Daddy comes home and wonders why my day is off. "I don't want to come home sometimes to hear that crap that goes on around here." Boo hoo.

Thanks for listening. MRI in one hour, let's see if my head doesn't explode on screen!

LOL. Your life sounds similar to mine. Hang in there, it does get easier.

I am definitely going to have to come on over and check out your blog! It's s nice not to feel isolated!

It seems that as this week goes on that it must be one of those 'sow your wild oats' kinds of things. School starts next week and my guess is that he's nervous. Just wish that he didn't most often decide that I get to be a target for all kinds of fun when that happens!

I know, it will get better. Hoping for soon! Thanks for commenting!
