A blog about the ups and downs of having a newborn, a toddler , keeping a demanding job, struggling to keep my marriage together, and living back home with my mom and sister.Jhen's Art Ask me anything
We closed on our house today! It does not feel real at all, especially since I have to pay the down payment tomorrow and thenwe’ll get our keys!
I am so excited! We finally have our own space!!! My kids can do art now! My son can drive his cars where he wants! They can scream and make as much noise as they want! They can run and play and break stuff- when we get stuff. They can go outside and play to exhaustion! And we have a pool so they can swim and swim and swim!
I can’t wait to have fun with my.kids!
Having to leave my son with his grandmother. He can’t do anything right in her eyes. He is in trouble for spilling.milk on and in her couch. And then he is in trouble for driving his car on the floor because It’s broken and it can scratch the tiles. “Can’t you see there’s something wrong with it!?” “Go get another one!” “A new one?” “I don’t know.”
Seriously? He is 3. He knows nothing of broken toys and scratching tiles. All he knows is that toy brings him joy and he’s playing with it.
I want to cry. How the hell am I supposed to sleep knowing my son is gonna miserable all day?
Why would someone who is supposed to be babysitting hear the kids wake up crying and completely ignore them, knowing that I am in the shower trying to get rid of hospital germs?
As a result, the baby took her diaper off and peed all over the bed and pillows. Now I get to sleep in wet pee bed.
Yay me. Tgis babysitting thing sucks. Like. Seriously? They just woke up. They are CRYING. I am IN THE SHOWER. Just get up and check on them for a minute! The tv won’t die without you!
My mil is watching kids while I sleep for night shift tonight. She sounds stressed as fk. My son can’t do anything right cuz he is hyper and like any other Jamaican kid really destructive. I’ve heard stories of what my dad and brother have done, and what my hubby and his brother have gotten up to….
My kid doesn’t have a chance in the world against this ‘bad’ behavior. I think he’s just being a boy. I don’t want him to have low self esteem because he thinks he’s a bad boy…. so for now I have to build him up every chance I get until we move out of this place and he can have his own room to destroy.
