My DH told me to ask that question in here. LOL. Here is the scoop. DD, age 12, has been being a real butthead. She also brought home a bad progress report from Language Arts...you know the type of report of which I speak...the one that says "she is very bright, participates well now if only she would do/turn in her homework". Well that little D- progress report and her PMS attitude the past three days got her in major crapola with me. She lost the ability to go anywhere except school until the next progress report comes home and then she got a bit flippy and she lost all of the electronics from her room. TV, Satellite, CD player, Game system, stereo, radio, IPod, etc etc. They are all sitting on one of the couches as I type. Now to the question DH posed. Since I want a radio in the Keep of Eggtopia for the Girls and their little roo, he asked if I was planning on giving them Cheyenne's TV and Satellite privileges since they enjoy watching TV....especially the Animal Planet and TVLand. Well I was about to say "of course not" when the mouthy one spoke up with the "No Way Mom...those chickens are not getting my TV and watching satellite. You cannot do that.". Well now you see we have a problem Houston, several in fact: 1. she who is grounded and knee deep in hockey should keep trap shut; 2. she who needs to keep trap shut should not be foolish enough to state what can and cannot be done in the home SHE does NOT pay for; and 3. No kid of mine is going to tell me what I will or will not do...not now, not ever so....guess where her TV is at this moment? uh huh in the Keep. I took it out there and hooked it up about 10 pm. At midnight the girls were enjoying a few old re runs of MASH and the Beverly Hillbillies. Now the questions posed are... How long will the girls get her TV and satellite? Will she learn to ZIP it in time to spare herself such misery? Will she remember to get her homework completed and in the teacher's hand? Do you think TV for the coop is a bit much? I will have the TV out of there before she gets home from school but I want her to know it is out there when she wakes up. I just want to remind her that I do as I wish and see fit...not what she says I will or won't. I hate it when they get cocky and challenge...as her brother is 12 years older, she should have already known better than to try it. Sorry just had to vent...KIDS! cannot live with them and cannot lease them out until college aged.
