I'm off work today, planned vacation day, just cuz. Anyhow, the kids told me they would be playing (band) in church this morning. I was planning on go to Mass, I'd never been able to go when the school goes, due being at work. I was a little excited and bonus of having both kids play during Mass their trumpet and trombone.
Anyhow, so I drop them off at 7:30ish, Mass starts at 8. I go park closer to the church and wait a few minutes in my car before going inside. Still plenty early.
So, once inside I see the band director and ask if he needs help setting anything up, etc. He says No, but he'll have to send the kids over with music stand and stuff - If I could just watch them and such. I said Okay and sat down.
A few minutes later my son and his friend come in with their hands full, looking down the sidewalk I see more kids and decided to hold the door open. I go up and down the stares a few time, cuz someone his hitting a drum and the people down stares are saying the Rosery, So, I ask them to be quite.
My son has his hands on his head, as to be pulling his hair out -cuz I'm there. My daughter is giving me "looks" and bust past me, telling me to get out of here. Being very rude.
So, I go outside and get in my car to leave. My son going back over to band hall to get more stuff sees me and ask me where I'm going - I'm in tears, I was excited to see them play and being able to help out and they treat me like dirt, Like I shouldn't be there and my daughter even tells me to leave.
My son ask me not to go, but I tell him, that him and his sister do not have to be rude to me all the time and I leave.
So, now I'm been home a few hours - and I don't know what to do. I'm still upset.
I'm a single mom, that does everything for these damn kids - for what?
My daughter has a volleyball game this afternoon and I do not want to anymore, my son has a football game on Saturday, I'm thinking of just dropping him off.
I'm tired of giving, giving and giving with nothing in return. Rude kids! They are 11 and 12.
So, what do you do when your kids are just flat out rude and ugly to you?
