I just stumbled across this fabulous Writer's Blog ....
It also came with a quote I find fabulous....
“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
- C S Lewis
Thank You Angel for the blog award!!
I met Angel through Twin... and have gotten quite attached to her!! I will be posting a response to the award in the near future...I'm just thinking on what to say is all.. It just won't be a today post.
My kids are growing up.
Sure - they still pee the bed, stink like BO, pee on the bathroom floor when they're trying to get the bowl (that usually has the seat down on it still), have poop accidents in the tub, leave tracks in their underpants, don't like to shower without asking (unless it's a school day), like nothing better than to poke/punch/strangle/torture each other when they're within 1/2 a mile of each other, swear up a storm, tell me No every other minute, can't listen worth a damn, can't follow directions without a yelling match, hate to help do chores, and play zombie/army/war games every chance they get. They bounce off the walls from 7am to 11pm (if I let them -- that's AFTER lights out at 9:30ish -- when they're in their room reading until they fall asleep).
But when asked if they were willing to go to their biodad's house if
a) I took them there and picked them back up (3hrs round trip both ways - he doesn't have gas $)
b) I packed them food for the week (because he doesn't have $ to feed them with either - he said it's because he now has to give me $100/month for child support & that's their grocery $ for the month) ...
They answered.... AH HELL NO. We aren't packing our food to his house for him to eat. MOM. He'll eat a box of cereal in 2 days max. I'm NOT KIDDING. You should see the SIZE OF BOWL he eats out of!! He's a pig!! If he can't feed us, We. Aren't. Going.
Yep. I love them to pieces. And seeing them grow a backbone like that just Blows. My. Mind.
A year ago Austin would NEVER had stood up to him. He wouldn't tell him he didn't want to live with him for fear of retribution. When they were there the end of July Austin told his dad flat out "You know mom's NEVER going to let us live with you." And he told me "I don't think he took it well when I told him I'm NEVER going to live with him." I was so proud of him. If I was a millionaire I would've ran out and bought him a brand new car. Instead we had Frosty's for lunch.
