So, in yesterdays post I discussed some things that my 5 year old son Chase does that annoy the bejesus out of me! In today’s post I will move on to describe the things Reese, age 3, does that drive me equally, as nuts.
Reese has long hair. It is beautiful hair and I love it, BUT….look closely and you will find toothpaste, syrup or any other food living in it. No matter how many times I tie it back in a pony tail to keep it out of her face, she finds a way to take it down and practically rub her whole meal in it! Hence the need for me to wash her hair every, single, night!
Whether there is food all over Reese’s face, snot in her nose or God forbid her face itches she bends down and starts wiping her face all over the carpet. Not in one particular area and she is not just partial to carpet in OUR home. No matter how much I tell her to stop, she keeps doing it!
Reese has been potty trained for a while now but I cannot get her to flush the toilet after she pees. She is adamant about only flushing when she goes number 2. After she goes to the bathroom she will spend approximately 20 minutes washing her hands and then goes on to “wash” the mirror in the bathroom, leaving it soaking wet and streaky!
Don’t get me wrong, there are also things that my kids do that DON’T annoy me, but that wouldn’t be as fun to write about!
