I am evil

Because I lost my shit with MM. He. Got. On. My. Last. Nerve. And I just lost my shit.

And he lost: the movies we were at Barnes & Noble to buy (long story, suffice it to say that when I asked him to give them to me to bring to the counter at our turn and he said, "no," it was the last of many straws); his Leapster for a week (keeping on talking when I told him to stop talking); his Pokemon cards for a week (hitting me in the arm in the parking lot); and television until I say so (keeping on talking when I told him to stop talking).

The last part was at the top of my lungs.

Not my proudest moment.

I think you have a lot of company in the Evil Club, then: that was me, last week, too. This too shall pass.

Been there, lost the shit, bought the T-shirt (Yelling: It's Not Just For Breakfast).

You're not evil, just human. And a great Mom who has understandable limits to her patience.

If we didn't have kids, we probably still wouldn't know that we even have a last nerve, let alone that it doesn't like being jumped on. And like the Faber College motto says, "Knowledge is Good". Let's hope MM does something good with the knowledge that some buttons really don't need to be pushed.

My kids (as they got older) called these moments, "The arrival of Psycho Mom."

What they all said. We've all been there. So. Been. There.

And yet, our youngest who is now 24 stopped by for supper tonight and brought me my very favourite sweet treat from his trip south of the border and gave me and his dad a big hug before he left.

They forget. Or forgive. Either way, it's all good.

What they all said. I just took away a borrowed Archie comic for the night, so I'm evil too.

What is it with the "won't stop talking"? I can't get no respect on that one either.

I am sorry. And I can empathize.

It's just so fireplacing frustrating to keep telling him, "don't say another word" and have him immediately say, "but..." or "why?" or "I'm NOT!"

GAHHHHHH!!!!!!!

It's a life lesson, right? Consequences. And that everybody has feelings. I think this happens to everyone. Sorry it all went down, though. That sucks.

You may be evil, but you're definitely human.

Where in hell did "fireplacing" come from?
