Today started out as typical Monday. Dragging all three kids out of bed. Getting them fed,dressed and out the door. We made our way to the first drop off of the morning, There are three so yes mornings are hectic. All was going well and I got 5yo to school when I returned to my car. Opening the door Sassy says look mom!
Standing there quiet I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Hmm I bet you are wondering what she was showing me huh? Well wait no more. I stood there in shock as my 7yo looks at me with her middle finger in the air! Look mom it’s m middle finger! So yes it is.
Where did she see that, how could she. All these thoughts racing in my mind. Very calmly I decided to use this opportunity to teach her about what that particular symbol meant and why it was disrespectful even though I know that was not her intent. Just when I was about to give myself the most awesome mom award Is when I gave myself the you’re a shitty mom award!
That child started bawling like a baby as if I had yelled at her or something! What the hell! She disrespected me and she has the nerve to cry when I teach her that it is not nice to flip people the bird!
Geez, kids these days!
Have you ever experienced a situation like this? Please tell me I am normal!
