Today was one of those days…
You know the kind, hanging out in bed till almost noon… some of the boys and I watched a movie… then made our way downstairs for brunch… then puttered some more… then we went to see “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” I loved this movie. I was sitting there hoping that this movie hit home with my boys.
The two older brothers got into it. Tyler punched Sammy in the nose. Sammy was so furious. I was so shocked. What…
Sammy said a bad word. That was as shocking as Tyler punching him in the nose.
I am so not cut out to parents my boys.
What planet did they come from?
At Tyler… well and at the rest of the boys… “If you EVER raise your hand in anger at one of your brothers EVER again... I’ll…”
( I wanted to say some thing fierce… like I’ll take you down!!!” Yet… I know that wasn’t really the answer).
So… I grounded him from his life… till further notice.
At Sammy… “If you EVER use that kind of language you will be restricted to G rated movies till you are out of this house.” It doesn’t help that he has friends that use that word… yet I know he was testing me as he said it… he saw my face and my reaction.
He knows better. I told him that language is that of those that are ignorant. There is no need for language. Especially in my house and around me.
So… these two are mad at each other.
In this movie, which was about brothers… and ultimately brothers stick together… I saw one bro looking at the other.
It sucks… that they fight as much as they don’t. Will it get better? Will they eventually become friends and love each other?
My friend says her two sons are each other’s best friend.
Insert my tongue sticking out here.
