I have this one friend in particular who drives me insane. Almost everytime we speak she tells me I should talk about my kids more. I really don’t know what to say to that because I have so much to vent and talk about sometimes the kids just don’t come up. My answer is usually the same. My kids are perfect, nothing to talk about. Ellie hates school, half the time, still. Gavin is in speach, still, and I hate it. They want me to frustrate him to get him to say more words and it is so tedious doing the appointmemts.
The last day I saw my kids they actually did something extra adorable. I had a large ziplock of pipecleaners Gavin, the 2 year old, got into. He dumped a bunch on the floor before I took the bag away and put it high on the art shelf. My 4 year old, Ellie, climbed on the chair and gave him the bag back when I wasn’t looking. I totally caught her but they were way too cute to stop. There are still pipecleaners on the floor. Apparently we are playing a game of chicken for who cleans up.
I really don’t know what to say about the fact that I don’t talk about my kids more. I love talking and can get caught up in almost any topic. What do you do? Mom break or bragaholic?
