Two yellow cards
one bumped head
one fight
x amount of being rude
x amount of I didn't do it
x amount I'll smash my computer up
x amount of banging his bed by lifting it and dropping it on the floor. ( that's still going)
x amount of rule stating
x amount of shouting
and one red card

one glass of wine on order ready for dc's bed time
one stodgey pudding waiting to finish cooking

who'd mix a teen and a pre teen with issues together.

One world war three!

And breathe!

And glug , then breathe again!
Everybody needs a good vent - it's the safety valve on our sanity system.
Tomorrow is another day - could be the same sad - could be worse biscuit - but most importantly, it could be better wink

Lol I need to have my wits till bed time.. Which will be even earlier if the banging doesn't stop soon! < end of tether smile>.

This all since we got in from school about an hour and thirty mins ago!

Ahh well .. I was expecting this tbh.. Boys have been at their dads this weekend.. Both are stressed .. And ds2 has a birthday this week ( week before is always hard work).

TheArsenicCupCake Mon 08-Nov-10 17:37:22

AUntevil... Totally agree .. You never know!

< seasoned old hand at all of this.. And I dint know if that's a good thing or a bad thing!>

Just seen your laptop and xbox ban. I've banned my 2 eldest from the play station room for the rest of the week for their constant bad behaviour since school pick up. But hey, that's why i'm called auntevil!

TheArsenicCupCake Mon 08-Nov-10 17:45:06

Hey.. Were do you think I get arsenic from

it has just come down after the constant banging of the bed and annouced it's calm!

Ha haaa I laugh in the face of that comment.. Told him to try again .. See if you can not bang for ten minutes mate.
Few door slams and the bed is going again.. I feel a yo yo moment happening.

However life is going on around it all.. Dd is getting on nicely. Dh is watching friend and I'm on here whist pud finishes off ( bad timing on that one doh!)

fightingthezombies Mon 08-Nov-10 18:18:37

Arsenic - hope you enjoy the pud and that tomorrow is better. I'm glad I only have 1 to deal with grin

Okay we are in shut down and non verbal.. And that means we're on our way out of it.
One super soft blanket wrapped tightly round and not readyfor rocking with mum yet.

( hand signals really are a bonus)

actually i kind of hope that by logging it on here for others to read.. It might show that you can ride these moments in a calm and firm way.. And it really is okay when you know the routine of your own dc.

This has been totally about being overwhelmed and stressed.. and not at the point of being able to help himself.
And we are all now just sat on the sofa .. With the lights dimmed and all will be okay. ( until tonight when he'll have night terrors and need lots of settling)..

TheArsenicCupCake Mon 08-Nov-10 18:28:05

Ahh pud was delish! ( apple Charlotte to my mums recipe.. With cookers that came off the tree today )

happy days

TheArsenicCupCake Mon 08-Nov-10 21:53:39

Got him all tucked up in bed now < phew>

gonna leave off the wine.. It's going to be a long one tonight.

Just seen this, Arsenic.

Hope tomorrow's a better one for you all. Did you save me any of that apple Charlotte smile.

TheArsenicCupCake Tue 09-Nov-10 14:58:21

wink there is a slice left

actually seeing as dh is on the school run I'm off to go and make to use the last apples up and the family have had enough of every other apple concoction!

And i have no ida for dinner yet ( sighs at the same timings and routine everyday for dinner time.. As what arsenic wants to do is order in a Chinese !)

ah well.. Let hope school went okay today!
