Things That Drive Me Nuts About My Kids, Part 2

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!

    My daughter use to have long hair until we donated it. Both ways it always has food in it. No matter what I do it’s like she is eating from a trough.
    That doesn’t bother me as much as the high pitch screeching. You know the one, everyone that has ever gone to a park and seen little girls playing on the slides know the one. It’s the one that makes you want to bang your head on the table and think to yourself why do they have voice boxes?

    Guess what my 3 year old did yesterday? She brushed her teeth with her own poop. She pooped in the potty. Dumped it down the sink. Poured toothpaste on top of it. And, stuck her hands in the whole mess. Splashing around, with her tooth brush. I KNOW she stuck that tooth brush in her mouth because she blew in my face like 20 min later – like she does after I brush her teeth.

    So, that was definitely my most traumatic parenting experience since birthing #2. It took 45 minutes of cleaning up and I was full on gagging.

    Miss you and LOVE your blog.
