What is your child's WORST quality?

Okay, so we all know that we love our kids and they're amazing and wonderful little buckets of joy. They make our world go 'round, we love them to the ends of the universe. We wouldn't wish for anything else, we couldn't possibly imagine life without them.

But who are we kidding? They stress us out, too. They frustrate us. They disappoint us from time to time. They drive us up the walls. No child is perfect, just like no mother is perfect.

Let's talk about the qualities your children have that aren't so "quality". The habits or personality traits that drive you nuts. The things they do or say that make you want to pull your hair out. Come on, we all have something we want to complain about. And it's perfectly okay to complain about your kids sometimes. It's okay to recognize their faults. It doesn't make you a bad mom.

So now's the time to let it all out. I'll start.

DD1 is so. damn. LOUD!!!! She only has one volume, and it's screaming. I swear I spend half my life telling her to use her "inside voice". She is 7 and her teacher tells me that she has a serious problem with volume control at school, too. lol

DD2 is STUBBORN. Incredibly stubborn. If you tell her to do something she doesn't want to do - it ain't gonna happen. She's only 18 months so it's not a huge issue now, but I can see it getting bad when she gets older. If she gets ahold of something she shouldn't and I ask her to please put it down, she just stares at me with this look that says "Yeah right, mom." lol

I agree....the LOUD volume drives me up the wall.   I am constantly telling dd and ss to use their inside voice or go outside to use their ouside voice

 Stubborn, back talks, and his attitude, he won't listen to a word said, and doesn't care for anything...

 DD1 can be like that sometimes. It's so frustrating...feels like talking to a brick wall! Except brick walls don't backtalk. lol

not taking responsibility.  I'll tell him to do something, and he will space it off. . . and when I get on him for that thing NOT being done ( usually it's right before we're about ready to go) he'll say "I forgot" or " I didn't hear you" or "it's not my fault".   HATE THAT.
