    I want stories about moments that you were mad and amused at your children at the same time.

    About thirty minutes ago I was on my bed unwinding. I wanted to be alone. My 17 year old son walked into my room and started to talk to me. I asked him to leave my room.

    He told me, "No, I am not leaving." And folded his arms over his chest. Getting annoyed, I told him again to leave. He refused. Now I was very annoyed but amused at his silliness. So, I told him that I wasn't teasing to get out of my room.

    He hopped backwards and said from outside of the door way, "Now I am out of your room." He hopped back in and said, "Now I am in your room." He did this several times. Then he stood in the door way and said, "I am kinda out of your room and kinda in your room."

    He is a very tall boy so to see him acting so silly was funny but I also wanted to kill him. [​IMG]

    So, tell me about the times that you have wanted to [​IMG] your child but was too busy [​IMG] at them.

    I'll never forget the time the oldest DD(now in her 20's) came home from the first day of the 1st grade. She told the DW "but mom, I don't have to do this stinkin' homework, I already know how to count my ABC's". We were laughing so hard there was no way that the DD was going to be punished.

    Last year our kindergarten son's teacher told me that he was having a hard time when he was playing games with the other kids -- only wanting to win. So, at the dinner table that night I said, " I hear that you're not showing good sportsmanship in speech". His response was "Yea, I am ............... when I win."
    Later on, I reminded him that even when he wins he should tell the other player good job. He said, "But Mom, they haven't done a good job. If they had, they would have won!"
    The teenage years are going to be sooo fun:rolleyes:

    Hmm, I don't really have a story that applies to my own kids....yet...

    My mom told me a story about my oldest brother that I can just image happening to me and my head exploding from not knowing whether to laugh or kill, LOL

    My brother got in trouble for something and went to his room. My mom followed talking about the issue and then she stops and asks "Are you even listening or is it going in one ear and out the other???"
    My brother points to his ear and calmly says "In this ear and out the other."
