I am sooo mad at my mil right now. Ugh! My dh is out of town so I had to have mil watch my kids tonight while I worked. I specifically told her that my oldest dd has state testing tomorrow and that she needs to go to bed early. Also, it's pretty dang obvious that tomorrow is a school day so you'd think she would have the sense to get them to bed early anyways. They are 6 and 9, btw. Well, I get off work at 10 and go to her house to pick them up, debating whether to leave them there or bring them home. I am assuming they will be asleep when I walk in. (Her house is literally a few minutes from our house.) When I walk in, however, she is watching TV in her room. She tells me if I want I can sit on her bed so we can talk. I then see our youngest walk in the room. I ask if Kylie (9 yo, who has the testing tomorrow) is up or asleep. She's still up! It's after 10 at night on a school night and she is still up! Ugh! I was so furious. I grabbed their stuff, told them to get their shoes on, and we left so fast. I can't believe she let them stay up so late. Ugh! Thanks, ladies, for letting me rant. Also, I know this is CM and I will get bashed. I really don't care at this point. Thanks for listening ladies.
I am a busy working mom to two very active girls. I love my kids, play on the floor in the fort with them, take them to the park, and love them always! I can't imagine life without them!
