Most Excellent Morning

Parenthood is odd. In no other relationship would I ever tolerate someone who...

... yells at me for making them a meal without clearing every ingredient first. It's like When Harry Met Sally:

... clogs a toilet with poop, leaves it there, doesn't tell me, and LOCKS the bathroom door!

... kicks me in the head when I'm sleeping.

... left their crap all over the place and didn't understand why I get a little ticked off by it.

If this were ANY other relationship? If they were a guy I was living with? They'd have been gone years ago. Out the door, See Ya. Don't call me; I'll call you.

It's a good thing I love 'em. I swear, I do. Because it is their combined desire to see how quickly they can push Mom to the brink.

They're putting out a splendid effort today. Top notch.

This relationship works because you know you have a fighting chance of changing them, a guy? No way. :p

All valid points. Never thought about it that way, but you are completely right. Anyone else, I'd have told them where they can shove it. And then make sure everyone they knew, knew what a piece of shit they were. Isn't it awful?? lol

They get an A+ for effort, right? That's what I tell myself when I really want to flunk the whole lot of ' em. =>
