The year old is crying because I'm making her take a bath, the 6 year old because I made him go to bed before he fell asleep on the couch so I didn't have to carry him.

I love when mine yells at me, I calmly respond with "I love you", and she gives me the whaaaat? look. Then she apologizes and says she shouldn't treat me that way.

Well aren't you the Easter grinch

My youngest was so excited he was up at 5a.m.
You should have seen him by 7p.m.
It wasn't pretty.

ETA) I do that too jo2love!!! Ever since dd was a little girl she would stomp her foot and say "I hate you!!!!" and we'd say "But we loooooovvveeeee yoooouuuu!!!" in a super sing songy cheery voice. It makes her mental. It's so much fun

I love it, Meta!

Is it sick that I love to add, "You know it's normal to be mad. It's a part of puberty." Oh she hates any mention of it.

11 yr old didnt want the bath. Kept trying to negotiate. I gave her 5 mins to get in the tub or I was going to help her.

No go.

So I helped her out of her clothes, dumped water on her head, lathered shampoo and rinsed.

In between furious screams she was telling me she couldnt breathe. But I figured ya know, if she can scream she can breathe, right?

Ahhhh, my empty nest is so quiet.

LD rarely argues at bathtime.

Somedays the empty nest is all I can think about...

*wistful sigh*

Yes; the 'empty nester' is sitting here, drinking tequila and laughing...

Empty nester here too. Unless you count the furbaby, who's part shepard, part beagle, mostly attention hound...
