By now I’m sure you’ve seen a video floating around social media called I’m An A**hole Parent. You know the one that has celebrity couples like JWOW and her hubby and some other people I don’t remember, saying why their A**hole parents. Mainly because they want their children to do things they would normally do anyways but the kids flips out about it. You know like getting dressed and peeing into the toilet.
I’m glad there are celebrities who are A**hole parents. It’s so nice to see that they go through the same hell us regular Joe’s do. For the longest time I thought they had it all together when it came to child raising as well as life in general. Well they don’t and neither do I.
The more my children give me grief and attitude when asking them to do or not do something, the more I’ve been thinking lately “man I am such an A**hole aren’t I ?”. Sarcastically thinking that is. I am such a terrible mom aren’t I?
I’m an A**hole parent and I’m not even sad about it!
I’m an A**hole because I want my 4 year old daughter to put her 5,000,001 toys away. Those toys that I warned her if she drug all out she had to pick them all up and now she’s throwing a high falootin’ fit. Now if she had just listened and only pulled a few out at a time we wouldn’t have this problem, but what kid listens!
I’m an A**hole because I won’t let my 18 month old daughter have candy at 5:30 IN THE FREAKING MORNING! So now I get to listen to her scream bloody freaking murder for the next 2 hours. I mean really you give them candy one time that early in the morning and now they expect it daily. Ok…this one is my fault I admit…I got it started. Not one of my better parenting decisions.
I’m an A**hole because I expect my children to do their chores. This deals with my 4 and 14 year old. Like look you little farts I’m not the only one that lives here. You won’t kill over if you put your laundry in the basket or if you do the dishes. And I’m pretty sure no one has ever died from taking the garbage out.
I’m an A**hole in general because after a long day of listening to my 18 month old scream and cry, while getting onto my 4 year old literally every minute and a half while catching the occasionally attitude from my teenager: I JUST WANT 5 MINUTES OF PEACE TO MYSELF! I’m an A**hole because I want to work on my blog without my baby crawling in and out of my lap to get onto the table, because I want to pee or even drop a number 2 without 2 toddlers, 2 dogs and 2 cats right outside the bathroom door. Because I want to cook dinner without my 2 youngest stuck to my leg like a hemorrhoid!
Don’t get it twisted
Don’t get me wrong and don’t think that because of this post I don’t love my kids. Because I do. I would give my life to save theirs any day, any time, no questions asked. But come on am I really that big of an A**hole because I want them to do normal daily chores and such? Or because I want a little me time?
