We’re Driving Bryan Totally Crazy
Totally absolutely bat-shit bonkers.
That would be Declan and myself doing the pushing. Straight over the edge.
Because we are too much alike. We’re stubborn and we like to be right.[Seriously, what is so wrong with that???]
Except that Bryan is getting an ulcer the size of Texas.
Here is how things go lately:
Declan: “I would like to declare something that is somewhat true, but not entirely true, but I will say it in a snippy way that annoys my mother just enough to correct me!”
Aimee: “I cannot be the adult in this scenario and just let it lie, so I will jump in and correct my son, trying to be funny, but only really causing him to get his 6.5 year old dander up.”
Declan: “I can’t let me mother actually correct me! I am almost 7! That’s nearly a grown-up! So I will say something even more outrageous back just to annoy her more!”
Aimee: “Now my son is really driving me nuts with his erroneous facts and crappy attitude! I think I will bring us down into a spiral of bad attitude till we both are either in tears or yelling at each other!”
Now my question to you is this.
HOW IS HE GOING TO SURVIVE TWO WEEKS IN IRELAND WITH US?
I suggest touring the Jameson distillery as well. Free whiskey at the end!
The answer is simple.
Kiss the stone, have fun, try not to kill anyone.
I would be happy to go along as your mediator… 😉
he won’t have to….one of you will eventually kill the other thereby eliminating his ulcerative status. 🙂
have fun in ireland you lucky beyotch!
Oh no! I suffer from your condition as well, but so far, I’ve found something that works:
Whenever my daughter says something purposely incorrect to irk me (she’s 3, but she’s skillful), I say, “Do you want to be wrong? Or, do you want to be right?”
She’s actually started saying, “I want to be wrong for a little while…” and then will go into her charade.
So far, hearing her say she wants to be wrong has been what my brain needs to just let it go.
I can’t wait to see what she comes up with when she’s almost 7. 😉
Good luck! (To ALL of you!!)
Get out of my house! Stop stalking the exact conversations had by *MY* 6.5 year old and myself?!?!
I so look forward to her teen years. Not.
Oh dear. Poor Bryan. Maybe he can “run errands” a lot which is code for “hide out at the local pub”? 😉
He won’t survive. Better take me instead!
Well hopefully you’ll all be thrown for a loop being in a foreign country and forget to argue. Or Bryan will develop a habit of carrying around some lovely Irish Whiskey. That’ll help for sure.
I think Zipper has the right attitude. lol.
