They are foul tempered, rude, nasty, noisy, messy, expensive and stressy.

I'm fed up with them. They hate me. I don't like them much. It's high time they went.

Sorry you are having such a hard time, Cervix. Sounds miserable. Can you make them an allowance for food etc and leave them to get on with cooking for themselves? Also discussion needed about keeping their own pits rooms clean and not cluttering, dirtying everywhere else in the house (washing up their own dishes etc or putting them in the dishwasher, taking turns in a rota for hoovering etc). Then, if they do not stick to the rules, let them have only enough food allowance for bread and cheese. Might mean a lock on your fridge. Sorry, don't have any other suggestions.

Hope you can get out and have some time to do stuff you want to do. How about showing them this thread? (then nc of course).

September 5th.

same day I bugger off for a month.

unless they improve significantly I might not come back.

Will they be going back to college/uni/school/work soon? End in sight etc?

Sorry, mine are being nice and entertaining themselves, so I'm afraid you can keep them.

Apparently, they leave home eventually.

Although mine is 23 now and shows no sign <sigh>

He's really pleasant now though, if that's any help. Aged 14 to 19 he was beyond vile ...

I don't want to hide in my room. The dog isn't allowed up there.

I'm sulking and not talkung to either of them.

AtYourCervix - would it help it you feigned illness?

maybe one would kindly help mum and play nurse?! or maybe the little beasts would just run havoc anyway??!! (sorry for being unkind about your kids btw :-) )

Send them to work downa the mines. I've warned DS (3.5) that if he has one more tantrum, that's where he's going.

StepAwayFromTheEcclesCakes Mon 19-Aug-13 15:47:15

in that case... change the locks and pretend you are out grin we relish the days and evenings when both of ours are out, tis the only time we can get it together! the buggers never go to sleep.

AtYourCervix Mon 19-Aug-13 15:46:24

Nobody else would want them, they are that foul.

MissDD1971 Mon 19-Aug-13 15:46:08

I'll prob get flamed for this too, is the attic an option? does it have a lock?! evil smile

MissDD1971 Mon 19-Aug-13 15:45:19

I am not a parent (eek!) - can you offload them onto kind (and insane) friend who could take them out or have them for the day?

and yes, grandparents/aunties etc who haven't been involved. Now's their time to shine.

My mum (who was a teacher) was a saint and/or mad - she'd happily take out other people's kids (before and after she had us) for day and also would have birthday parties for me and my brother and invite our entire classes. Other, more sane parents would not do this. My mum loved it.

she's still alive, maybe I can send her to you OP like a Mrs Doubtfire?!

freddiefrog Mon 19-Aug-13 15:43:52

I wish I could bin mine today as well

I've got 6 of them here, only 2 of which are actually mine. I keep kicking them all out, only for them to all sneak back in to play Minecraft

now I don't feel so bad for giving my 4 year old an ice cream for his breakfast sat morning so I could just have a cuppa in peace and let my eyes focus!

AtYourCervix Mon 19-Aug-13 15:39:55

God I miss the days when I could put them to bed at 7.

Horrible beasts don't go before me any more.

Iamsparklyknickers Mon 19-Aug-13 15:38:24

YANBU - Sack 'em off.

Can you set up camp in your room surrounded by goodies, wine and a half decent film?

Tell them to go to the neighbours if one of the starts bleeding or give them the St John Ambulance website.

I have just dumped my DS with my parents and then will do with DSis, for a total of 3 weeks. grin

Looking forward for the silence at home (although I still have a cat who's feeling very neglected after 2.5 weeks) but only for a couple of days.

FrussoHathor Mon 19-Aug-13 15:36:25

Swap ya.

Mine behave for other people. little toe-rags for me

TheOnlyPink Mon 19-Aug-13 15:35:34

Yanbu! Mine are driving me to distraction today. Just gave them some biscuits so they would bugger off and leave me have a coffee.
We have already been out for a run around. It was all "look at meeeee! No, look at MEEEE!"

Only 4 hours until bed time.

peachypips Mon 19-Aug-13 15:35:21

I feel like that today too. And have two extras too making it worse. Argh.

AtYourCervix Mon 19-Aug-13 15:32:56

They are old enough to move out and seek their fortunes (near enough anyway).

Foul beings.

StepAwayFromTheEcclesCakes Mon 19-Aug-13 15:31:36

are they old enough to be ignored while you take a bottle of wine and some sweets into the bath with you... oh and headphones?

IsabelleRinging Mon 19-Aug-13 15:29:37

YANBU! I always said I should have just got more cats!
