Oh. My. God….. haven’t we all seen that stupid Family Guy add where the dog Stewy does this to Lois. Just kill me now! ( I can’t bring myself to watch the show)
Miss Gremlin just talks and talks and talks at the moment. It’s an attention thing I know, Dad’s been a bit hard on her lately and she’s pretty sensitive, so she’s trying to get extra attention from me but seriously, I’m ready to flip! I’m channelling Linda Blair and at any moment my head is gonna spin around and I’m about to spew green scary shit just everywhere!
It’s so very hard to not hurt her feelings when she’s like this and so like the Earth Mother swathed in motherly patience, I endure this like a rope to the balls, as poor James did in Casino Royale. I cringe but smile.
I give her the attention because I know she needs it but eventually even I get to a point where I just…..can’t …… take ….. it …. anymore.
That’s when she has to go to bed, or go do homework or read or just go away………..I’m holding on and I think I can make it until 8pm…… but I might have to have a drink…. Yep I just might.
Hahaha…I’m there with you now. Babyface has two days off in a row. We’re only halfway through the first and I’m checking the clock, so I can have a glass of wine when she naps at 5 pm! 5 hours…and counting…
Just a little break would be a refreshment 🙂
She’s eight, right?! I feel she could handle a little bit of neglect at this stage!! 😛 Okay, just kidding….maybe not!!
I’m perfecting that skill as we speak 🙂
