Yesterday was day four with the kids. I love um dearly so don’t get me wrong but they were starting to get on my nerves. We went to Burger King for lunch and stopped at the restroom on the way in. William decided to exit the stall before I was finished and he left me standing with my pants down around my ankles facing the entrance door.
We waited in line to order and he was told not once, but twice, not to swing on the handrails near the cash register.
When we got to the fountain pop dispenser he started in with one of his “mom chants.” You’ve heard these before, it’s when the kid says,“mom, mom, mom, mom, mom” over and over in the same tone of voice. It literally drives me insane. Yesterday I learned I am not alone with my feelings on mom chants.
William was standing behind me while I was getting my drink and he was doing the chant when the women beside me getting her own drink yelled, “What do you want” in a not very pleasant voice. When she turned around and saw it was my child she had just yelled at and not hers, she grew red in the cheeks and apologized profusely.
I laughed because it was funny and it was the first time Will was silent in four days. Her own kid even asked her why she did it and she explained that sometimes mommy’s get mixed up. I agree and sometimes it takes a whole Burger King to raise a child.
We also did some shopping yesterday which is exhausting with my daughter as she loves to shop. At her favorite store Claire’s she bought a pair of lacy, fingerless gloves complete with a tiny rose sewed onto one of the fingers that looks like a ring. She wore these fancy gloves during her soccer game last night and had her signature sparkles dabbed all over her face.
She practices the avoidance strategy during most
soccer games, standing behind others that will actually kick the ball. She finds the game tiring even though she rarely runs or kicks the ball. Many times she volunteers to sit out so others can play and sits on the sideline watching with fake diamond encrusted sunglasses on. She’s a hoot. If they ever have a
“fancy” competition I’m certain she will win.
Bad Web Sites
Yesterday while researching ways to market my book I came across a web site called; http://www.thedigitalin.com/. For around $11 this company will post a “good” review of your book on Amazon. The more positive reviews you have on Amazon the more books you will sell, that’s just a given. But to think that people cheat this way really pisses me off. Book reviews are supposed to be sacred, a true account of what people really think of your book. When I was growing up my mom
always taught me that cheaters never win, but in this situation they do. It’s a sad, sad world we live in.
Have a good day!
