To get pissed because my kids irritate me

I love my kids but......

My 20 year old is home from Uni and he is ill. He is genuinely ill but he refuses to stay in his room and has taken up the big sofa in the lounge for 3 days now. He stinks and he is vomiting all the time (I have taken him to Docs who says it is a virus).

I have been emptying his vomit bucket whilst retching at the same time, I am very cross (inwardly).

He is a tyrant, moaning about the lights, the tv, our talking and barking orders re drinks. Did I mention he absolutely stinks and I have offered to run him a bath "to make him feel better" several thousand times. I want to throw away my sofa when he is better.

DS2 is also at the stage of asking loads of questions "Mum - you know coyotes? Why aren't they dogs?" "Mum - you know bananas - why do they go brown?".

And we got a puppy 10 days ago.

I am going nuts!

Why are you moaning about looking after your own child. My son is home from Uni and I love it. If I had to run around after him I would love that too.

He drops his clothes everywhere, he stays up real late. He sleeps in till 2pm, who cares, my son is home, whoooopeeeee.

If my kid was sick Id have him on the sofa so I could keep an eye on him.

Jeez why did you even bother giving birth beats me.

We had a puppy, great fun!

MadamDeathStare - please come to my house and take him to a hostel before I strangle the stinker smile

What about the cider? How many units is reasonable with a vomiter, a questioner and a new puppy?

FabbyChic - you are so silly and sweet grin

one unit per irritation....per hour!

i have 5 thats up to 5 units per hour,works well i find!!

ILove - I think that's generally right, but you missed the small print - in the week before Christmas it's unlimited! But you are absolutely not to mix it with Baileys.

JJ17 Harden up! Do what Madame Deathstare said - just because he's ill doesn't mean he can't take a bath/shower. Just because he's ill doesn't mean he can bark orders at you & generally be a prat.

vg - so - let us presume you start at 7pm, go to bed at 11pm. That's 20 units, marvellous, well done you!

Presumably you need an hour off for beating the children with pokers and making them eat coal - so 15 units. Unless you are an exceptional mother and can beat and drink at the same time.

Yes, that's good dietary advice, thank you. A little spinach in your sag aloo (don't share) should keep your strength up.

I applaud you.

Off to empty the vomit bucket.

hooray hooray - stinker has gone to his room. I have febreezed the fuck out of the sofa!!!

Now I am smoking in the living room (rare treat), such a hypocrite!.

He doesn't own the living-room- give him a telly and lock him in, the stinky fucker.

JJ17 Thu 23-Dec-10 01:18:29

BOF - the stinky fucker does think he owns the living room. He has now been sent packing to his room, bath tmw I think.

To be fair, he is vomming every 5 mins.

Poor stinker.

vomiting every 5 min in the living room?? (ok, I know he has moved now) Not on big boy. GO and chunder where we can't see you

jasper Thu 23-Dec-10 01:24:28

I would rehome the puppy, but I doubt if that solution will appeal to you

JJ17 Thu 23-Dec-10 02:34:59

I like the puppy! It's the vomming chunderer that's driving me to drink. Rehoming for a 20 year old stinker - anyone, anyone - give you £5. No child benefit.

I love madam's advice! (and her name)

Take the advice!

My 9 month old is driving me to drink. He keeps going eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh and DS1 is also at the asking random questions about random things age.

At least I don't have a puppy.

Sometimes being the mum sucks.

your older son does NOT need a bucket. He can make it to the loo, he can stay in his room - you will all be infected otherwise. You can tell him you love him but its not nice to have someone puking in the living room (for whatever reason).

then you can answer your younger child's interesting questions about the world.
