In the land of 10 year olds I want to be King. I'm not sure how they think or why they work. I've never been a 10 year old boy. I can't relate. And because of that I don't know the Magic Words that will make it Stop. The Button you push that calms them down. Where is the Operating Manual for these finely oiled machines?

He doesn't know a way to tell us what he really feels. So it spews out in anger and resentment and hatered. He doesn't mean the hurtful things he says. But we just don't understand! So the Battle of the 10 Year Olds begins. I try not to join the battle. 1 vs 1 should be considered a fair fight. But one of them is no longer 10 ... and Motherly Protectiveness rears it's ugly head and the battle becomes 2 vs 1. (There are so many days when I'm the 1 on the 1 vs 1.) 

Tomorrow's a New Day.
I pledge to smother him in love.
When he says the mean words, I will ignore them.
I will calmly count to 10 before I lash out at him in anger.
I will just walk away.
I will not challenge his violence with the same.
I will not rise to battle.
And when my Cope Jar is full I will go to my room and he will go to his.....

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
