I Just Don't Go There

While avoiding our children, Barefoot and I had this conversation earlier:

Barefoot says:
The girl cherub's nose is bleeding and the boy cherub is crying because she won't play with him. Selfish bitch
Little Miss says:
her nose was bleeding at our house the other night. what's up with that? just dry weather?
Barefoot says:
she has bad allergies, dr. gave us zyertec, but I never remember to give it to her. I suck
Little Miss says:
just wondering...do you spend most of your day trying to ignore your children like I do? or do you actually sit down and play games with them? and do art work together?
Barefoot says:
ignoring or hiding
Little Miss says:
what's the norm?
Barefoot says:
depends on who you ask
Little Miss says:
i knew you were going to say that.
Barefoot says:
yep, and the boy cherub is now singing about the girl cherub's nose bleed
Little Miss says:
I wonder how bad I suck. Maybe I need a mom-suck-o-meter to keep me on track
Barefoot says:
I just don't go there, I know it's bad
Little Miss says:
go where? actually getting involved with your kids daily activities? or sucking?
Barefoot says:
my level of suck-i-ness
Little Miss says:
i mean, like right now, Sweetie is still coloring at the table, Tiny's still napping...and i'm still right where i left them an hour ago. Am I the only mom who does this?
Barefoot says:
nope, I do it to
Little Miss says:
k, good, so long as my *BFF goes to hell with me...
Little Miss says:
i just don't want to be alone
Barefoot says:
cheif greeter, I tell you

*you'll have to ask Barefoot for what her version of this acronym means!

  1. I deny I ever actually said any of those things, in fact I think Mandi made it up. But for the record, BFF = barefoot fuck up.

  4. It's rare I actually get down on the floor and play with them > It's hard when you have a gazillion other things to do at the same time! Usually I stick Gianna in the playpen and turn on Barney so I can do whatever it is I have to do. Hubby went to lay down after dinner because he didn't feel well. After I bathed the children and put the little one to bed I actually read to Hailee. i cant tell you the last time I did that! I wonder what my house would look like if I didn't say "Not right now" everytime Hailee asked me to play with her. I don't think I made any sense just now. Oh well, I blame ovulation :0)

  6. Sounds like life as a single mom. I live for peace and quiet. Since I have one child...she has no one else to entertain her. I am Chief Cook, Cleaner (what is this again?), Mom, and Playmate to my darling.

    Sometimes it is just ugh! I love her but I think I am coming to play with you and Erika. Will you notice one more in your mix?

  8. I'd rather play with mine than clean. It's so much fun... and CLEANING... is NOT!

    I'm the outcast!
