Okay .. let me say this first .. I am not a troll. This is NOT a troll post.
I'm changing the names because my friend does cafemom (not a part of this group, but she IS a member)
I have a friend named Michelle .. She has 3 kids. Dick (6 yo boy), Jane (4 yo girl) and Sue (1 yo girl). I have 3 kids .. Christian (9 yo boy), Patrick (6 yo boy) and Mary (4 yo girl). Okay so heres the problem.
I love Michelle, we have been best friends for a LONG time (High school days). We have been there for eachother through thick and thin. She comforted me when my nephew died, and I was the first one by her side to help her clean her house when DFACS took her kids away. (I know that sounds bad and white trash, but it happened .. I helped her and told her that she couldnt blame anyone but herself and they had every reason to take them - she just couldnt let it happen again). We have kids that are best friends. Dick and Patrick are the same age and have been best friends since they could walk, Mary and Jane are the same way.
My kids arnt perfect. Christian has ADHD and Patrick is a smart ass (just being honest), and Mary just gets into everything, best bet if there is hand soap in the bathroom, she is going to make the bathtub a slip-n-slide lol. They are all loving kids. They are all happy and healthy.
I cant stand for Michelle to come over. I actually want to hide when she randomly drives up because her kids are too much for me. I cant handle them. Dick is violent .. Ex: We got my boys an xbox kinect for their birthday. It came with Disneyland Adventures. The boys went to my moms for the night and Mary stayed home. Michelle and the brats came over and Mary wanted to show Jane the game (you dance with disney princesses). Well of course Dick wanted a turn, and she gave him one .. (my kids share) well he didnt want to give her a turn so he elbowed her in the chest .. HARD, knocked the breath out of her. I seriously was at loss for words. I looked at Michelle and shook my head .. she said "Now Dick ... Tell Mary your sorry". That was it. Not a swat on the ass, or the corner .. im sorry .. but if MY son did that to a little girl then his ass would be in some serious trouble. Alls i could say was, "Its okay Mary, they are about to GO HOME".
Another time on Dicks birthday, he got upset because i told him to watch his mouth and he spit on me. His mother did nothing. She said .. Well, i dont want to get him in trouble on his birthday.
This boy is a nightmare.
Jane constantly cries. If she doesnt get her way she can be just as much of a monster as he is. I cant take these kids. They break my shit on purpose. I really just want to choke them EVERY time they come over, and it wouldnt be such an issue if Michelle would do something about it.
Christian was doing his homework one day and Dick just came up to him and kicked him in the back. Patrick is his friend, but now he is making up stories on Patrick just to get him in trouble. WTF?? I know half you are going to think this is wrong but i have given my kids the option to defend themselves. Maybe that will open hey eyes to the problem .. what would you do?
Before yall say .. Just stay away from them. Id just like to point out that thats not an option. The kids go to the same school, are on the same t-ball team (Partick, Mary, Jane, and Dick), and our husbands work at the same place so we really rely on eachother to watch eachothers kids when the husbands take turns being on call, if we need to do something. And i have also tried talking to her about it .. it never does any good.
